Joining the family of suppressor and optics-ready Patriot Predator bolt-action rifles is the newest cartridge to dominate long-range shooting, the 6.5 PRC (Precision Rifle Cartridge).
The new rifles are housed in a durable Flat Dark Earth (FDE) synthetic stock with matte blue metalwork, and TrueTimber® Strata™ camouflaged-synthetic stock with Patriot Brown Cerakote® metal finish.For extended-range performance in the field or at the range, the 6.5 PRC, designed for short-action, bolt-action rifles, offers a balance of velocity and manageable recoil combined with a flat trajectory.
It’s inherently accurate with exceptional ballistics to beyond 1000 yards.The Patriot Predator features Mossberg’s proven twin-lug, push-feed machined-steel action, fed from a lightweight polymer, flush 4-round box magazine. The standard contour, free-floating 24-inch barrel features a 1:8 twist rate, straight-edge fluting and is threaded (5/8” – 24 threads per inch) for a suppressor.
The barrel is carbon steel and every Patriot rifle features Mossberg’s patented LBA™ (Lightning Bolt Action™) user-adjustable trigger with a 2 to 7-pound range of adjustment. A picatinny rail is provided for mounting optics. Completing the package are an oversized bolt handle, a spiral-fluted bolt and sling swivel studs.
The classically-styled stocks are designed for comfort and reduced felt recoil with their straight combs, rounded edges and raised cheekpieces. There’s textured stippling on the grip and three surface areas of the fore-end. A polymer block insert with integral magazine well provides an effective bedding platform. Rounding out the stock design is a traditional black rubber recoil pad.
