Mossberg® and Mossberg International™ Expand Line of 20 Gauge Shotguns

 

North Haven, CT – The 20-gauge shotgun has recently garnered more respect in the world of tactical and field shotguns due to their effectiveness and lighter-weight, lower-recoiling platforms that are suitable for shooters of all statures. Mossberg is expanding its line of 20-gauge offerings with two new Mossberg 500 8-Shot Pump-Actions and two updated Mossberg International SA-20 Autoloaders (6-round total capacity). Lightweight, dependable and effective, these are shotguns that the whole family can use for a variety of applications.

500 8-Shot Pump-Action 20-Gauge Shotguns – Built on the legendary 500 platform that has been used by military, law enforcement and civilians worldwide for over 50 years, these 20 gauge (2 ¾ and 3-inch capability) pump-actions have non-binding twin action bars, positive steel-to-steel lock-up and anti-jam elevator for smooth, reliable operation. A fixed cylinder bore on the compact 20-inch barrels delivers optimal pattern densities and target acquisition is simplified with the Ghost Ring aperture sights. Exposed metalwork has a non-reflective matte blue finish while stocks and forends, constructed of durable synthetic, feature a matte black finish. Completing these tactical shotguns are 8-shot total round capacity, ambidextrous top-mounted safety and sling swivel studs. For 2013, two new 20 gauges are available – 500 8-Shot Bantam with shortened 13-inch length of pull (54300) and 500 8-Shot with 6-Position Adjustable Stock (54301).

SA-20 Autoloading Shotguns – For further recoil reduction, select the smooth-operating and dependable SA-20 autoloader. These 2 ¾ and 3-inch capable shotguns have a gas-operating system which vents excess gases to reduce recoil and lessen stress on operating components. The shorter 20-inch barrels have fixed cylinder bores and are topped with a fiber optic winged front sight and Ghost Ring rear sight. Receiver-mounted Picatinny rail provides for the addition of optics and distinctive mag cap tri-rail allows for the attachment of accessories or lights. Matte blue metal finishes; durable black synthetic stock with front and rear sling swivel studs; Easy Load elevator; 6-round total capacity; and cross-bolt safety complete the standard features. Updated for 2013 are the SA-20 with Full-Length Pistol Grip Stock (75780) and the SA-20 with Standard Synthetic Stock (75778) with new mag cap tri-rails.

The comfort, fit and reliability of these 20-gauge shotguns allow you to have more control without sacrificing performance. Now with multiple 20-gauge models to choose from and a proven family of other 500 and 590® pump-action special purpose shotguns, look no further than Mossberg.

Mossberg® Expands Thunder Ranch® Tactical Series

 

North Haven, CT – Two of the keys to successful personal defensive training are selecting a properly-equipped firearm that you can depend on, and a trainer who has the real-world experience to prepare you to confidently use that defensive tool. Mossberg continues its partnership with Marine Corps veteran and former SWAT team member, Clint Smith, who serves as President and Director of Thunder Ranch training facility in Lakeview, Oregon, by adding three new Thunder Ranch firearms designed for personal defense or competitive shooting. Introducing the Thunder Ranch Series for 2013, the 500® Thunder Ranch 20th Anniversary Pump-Action 12-gauge shotgun, the Maverick® HS12™ Thunder Ranch Over-and-Under 12-gauge shotgun and the 5.56mm NATO-chambered MVP™ Thunder Ranch Bolt-Action rifle. All are proudly branded with the Thunder Ranch logo or the Thunder Ranch 20th Anniversary logo.

500 Thunder Ranch 20th Anniversary Pump-Action Shotgun – This compact 12-gauge (2 ¾ and 3-inch shell capability) featuring an 18 ½-inch barrel, shortened synthetic stock with a 13-inch length of pull and 6-round total capacity was initially introduced in 2012, as the 500 Thunder Ranch. To recognize the 20th Anniversary of the Smiths’ world-renowned training facility, the 2013 version of the 500 Thunder Ranch is emblazoned with the distinctive “Thunder Ranch 20th Anniversary” logo. Key features include a fixed cylinder bore for optimal pattern densities; a machined stand-off/breaching barrel design; simple white-dot sighting system; tri-rail forend Picatinny rail system (integrated bottom rail and removable side rails) for quick addition of tactical accessories or lights; and decreased overall length of 37 inches for added maneuverability. All exposed metalwork has a non-reflective matte blue finish and the durable stock and forend feature a matte black finish and sling swivel studs. Completing this tactical shotgun package is a handy, black padded sling. MSRP: $493

Maverick HS12 Thunder Ranch Over-and-Under Shotgun – Known for delivering exceptional value in a no-nonsense package, the Maverick HS12 is a 3-inch chambered, 12-gauge break-action shotgun featuring robust dual-locking lugs for a strong, secure lock-up and maximum reliability. Operation is simple with the tang-mounted safety and integrated barrel selector. Key features of the Thunder Ranch HS12 include fixed cylinder bore in both barrels; shortened 18 ½-inch barrel length; receiver-mounted Picatinny rail and barrel-mounted Picatinny side rails for the attachment of optics, lights or accessories; and for quick target acquisition, the top rail is slotted to work in conjunction with the front fiber optic sight. The black matte-finished synthetic stock and forend are contoured for a more solid grip and better handling and all exposed metalwork wears a matte blue finish. The “Thunder Ranch” logo is engraved on the right side of the receiver. MSRP: $549

MVP Thunder Ranch Bolt-Action Rifle – MVP Series rifles are based on the classic Mossberg 4×4™ bolt-action platform but feature the patent-pending Drop-Push bolt design allowing the rifle to accept and reliably feed from standard AR-style magazines. Other standard features include our user-adjustable, patented LBA™ (Lightning Bolt Action™) Trigger System easily adjusted from 2 to 7 pounds; distinctive spiral-fluted bolt; factory-installed, receiver-mounted Picatinny rail; dual front and rear sling swivel studs; and 10-round capacity magazine. The MVP Thunder Ranch is chambered in 5.56mm NATO (223 Rem) optimized with a 1:9 twist rate in the 18 ½-inch medium bull, fluted barrel. The barrel is threaded and comes with a thread cap. Housed in a durable wood stock, the MVP Thunder Ranch features a distinctive OD Green finish and complementing matte blue metalwork. Completing the package is the “Thunder Ranch” logo engraved above the magazine well on the right side of the stock. MSRP: $934
