Mossberg Patriot Predator: A Comprehensive Review

The Mossberg Patriot Predator stands out among bolt-action rifles, particularly admired for its precision, reliability, and affordability. Combined with the Vortex 3-9x40mm riflescope, this rifle becomes an exceptional tool for both seasoned hunters and shooting enthusiasts. This article delves deep into the features, performance, and advantages of the Mossberg Patriot with the Vortex scope, focusing on the .243 Winchester variant with a 22″ fluted barrel, matte blue finish, walnut stock, and a 5-round capacity.

Design and Build Quality (Mossberg patriot predator)

Craftsmanship and Aesthetics

The Mossberg Patriot Predator boasts a design that merges traditional aesthetics with modern functionality. The walnut stock offers a classic look and feel, providing beauty and durability. This wood is known for its strength and resistance to the elements, ensuring the rifle’s longevity. The matte blue finish on the barrel and action adds to the rifle’s aesthetic appeal while protecting against corrosion and wear.

Fluted Barrel Advantages

The 22″ fluted barrel is a significant feature of this rifle. Fluting reduces the barrel’s weight, making the gun easier to handle. It also increases the surface area, aiding in faster cooling during extended shooting sessions. This design ensures the barrel remains accurate and consistent, even under heavy use.

Ergonomics and Comfort

Ergonomics play a crucial role in a rifle’s overall performance. The Mossberg Patriot Predator excels in this area with a well-designed stock that fits comfortably against the shoulder. The textured grip ensures a firm hold, even in wet conditions, and the recoil pad minimizes felt recoil, allowing for prolonged shooting without discomfort.

Vortex 3-9x40mm Riflescope

Optical Clarity and Precision

Including the Vortex 3-9x40mm riflescope significantly enhances the Mossberg Patriot Predator’s capabilities. Vortex optics are renowned for their crystal-clear glass, durable construction, and precise adjustments. The 3-9x magnification range is versatile and suitable for short- and long-range shooting.

Ease of Use

The scope’s adjustment is straightforward, thanks to the tactile and audible clicks on the turrets. The dead-hold BDC reticle helps compensate for bullet drop and wind drift, making it easier to hit targets at varying distances without constant recalibration. This feature is particularly beneficial for hunters who often face unpredictable conditions in the field.

Performance and Accuracy 

Caliber Choice: .243 Winchester

The .243 Winchester caliber is famous for its balance of power and recoil. It is effective for hunting medium-sized game and is known for its flat trajectory, enhancing accuracy over longer distances. This caliber, paired with the precise build of the Mossberg Patriot Predator, results in a highly accurate and reliable rifle.

Range and Accuracy

The combination of the Mossberg Patriot Predator and the Vortex scope delivers impressive accuracy. Users have reported sub-MOA (Minute of Angle) groups at 100 yards, a testament to the rifle’s build quality and the scope’s precision. This level of accuracy makes it a formidable choice for hunting and target shooting.

Reliability and Durability

Reliability is a hallmark of Mossberg firearms, and the Patriot Predator is no exception. The bolt action is smooth and reliable, ensuring each round is accurately chambered. The durable materials used in its construction mean that this rifle can withstand harsh conditions without compromising performance.

Ease of Maintenance

Disassembly and Cleaning

Thanks to its user-friendly design, maintaining the Mossberg Patriot Predator is straightforward. Disassembling the rifle for cleaning is a simple process, which is essential for keeping the firearm in optimal condition. Regular maintenance ensures the gun performs at its best, whether in the field or on the range.

Long-Term Care

For long-term care, the walnut stock should be regularly treated with appropriate wood oil to maintain its luster and prevent cracking. The matte blue finish on the barrel and action should be kept clean and dry to avoid rust. Proper storage in a cool, dry place will further enhance the longevity of this exceptional rifle.

Value for Money

Affordability and Performance

One of the standout features of the Mossberg Patriot Predator is its excellent value for money. Despite its high-quality build and impressive performance, it remains affordable compared to many other rifles. This makes it an attractive option for new shooters and experienced hunters looking for a reliable gun without breaking the bank.

Package Inclusions

The Vortex 3-9x40mm riflescope adds significant value to the package. Vortex is a trusted name in optics, and having a scope of this quality included means that users do not need to invest additional money in aftermarket optics. This package is ready to perform right out of the box, providing a seamless shooting experience.


The Mossberg Patriot Predator with Vortex 3-9x40mm Riflescope in .243 Winchester is an outstanding choice for anyone looking for a reliable, accurate, and affordable rifle. Its combination of classic design, modern features, and exceptional performance makes it a versatile firearm suitable for various applications, from hunting to target shooting.
