The attractive, accurate, and affordable Patriot Bantam raises the bar on standard features in a rifle designed to fit younger and smaller-statured shooters. At the heart of the Patriot is Mossberg's proven twin-lug, push-feed, machined steel action, which is fed through a lightweight polymer, flush box magazine. The button-rifled, free-floating barrel is constructed of carbon steel with straight-edge fluting and a recessed target crown. Mossberg's patented Lightning Bolt Action Trigger System provides for consistent shot placement and is user-adjustable from 2 to 7 pounds. The updated knurled bolt design allows for more efficient operation. Other standard features include: a distinctive spiral bolt, receiver-mounted Weaver scope bases, and sling swivel studs.
