Mossberg® Unveils Duck Commander™ Series #SHOTShow

North Haven, CT – Industry-leading firearms manufacturer, O.F. Mossberg and Sons, Inc., announced a long-term agreement with the Robertson family and phenomenally-popular Duck Commander franchise in June 2013. Now Mossberg is pleased to announce the first offerings in their “Duck Commander” series of firearms which include 11 pump-action and autoloading shotguns, two rimfire rifles and new for 2014, a semi-auto rimfire pistol. Setting these firearms apart are features personally-selected by the Robertsons and not found on other Mossberg firearms.

The initial offerings all proudly display the “Duck Commander” logo; feature the newly-introduced, Realtree® MAX-5™ camouflage for maximum effectiveness; TRUGLO® TRU-BEAD™ Dual Color fiber optic sight (shotguns only) optimized for low-light conditions; and each Duck Commander Series model comes with an American flag bandana, like the one worn by Willie Robertson.

Choose from waterfowl-dedicated pump-actions including models with the highly-innovative FLEX™ and Recoil Reduction Systems, and a Super Bantam™ 20-gauge version for younger hunters or smaller-stature adults; autoloading shotguns in 12 gauge or a lighter weight, low-recoiling 20-gauge; or two highly-desirable “Family. Faith. Ducks.” 12-gauge special editions (930™ autoloader and 500® pump-action) that will be featured on TV with the Duck Commanders. Rounding out the series are two autoloading rimfire rifles chambered in 22LR, and a tactical-style, semi-auto 22LR pistol.

“Just like us, Mossberg is a company that was built on traditional family values, dedication and our great American heritage of hunting and shooting,” commented Phil Robertson, family patriarch and Founder, Duck Commander, Inc. “This partnership between our two families brings our roots and passion for waterfowl hunting front-and-center. Now our loyal fan base can shoot the same guns that we do. ”

Capturing the essence of the Duck Commanders’ mantra, “Family. Faith. Ducks.,” two TV-worthy and duck blind-ready 12-gauge shotguns will headline the Mossberg Duck Commander Series: the 930 Autoloader Waterfowl (85132) and 500 Pump-action Waterfowl (52260) Special Editions. Distinctive, with their OD Green metal finishes and Realtree MAX-5 camo; upon closer look, the receivers bear a repeating duck pattern; the “Duck Commander” logo is engraved on the ejection port sides and “Family. Faith. Ducks.” emblazons the opposite side of the receivers; “Happy, Happy, Happy” encircles the mag cap; and an American flag bandana is included. Other standard features, selected by the Duckmen themselves, include 28-inch, non-ported vent rib barrel and a TRUGLO TRU-BEAD Dual Color fiber optic sight. MSRP: $627 – $928

835® Ulti-Mag® Duck Commander Shotguns – Renowned as the world’s first 12-gauge 3 ½-inch pump-action, these hard-hitting shotguns feature overbored (10-gauge bore dimensions) and ported barrels to deliver tight consistent patterns. Two fully-camouflaged versions are available for 2014: The 835 Ulti-Mag Waterfowl (62150) version has a 28-inch vent rib, ported barrel; TRU-BEAD fiber optic front sight; and ACCU-MAG™ choke tube set (Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder).

535 ATS™ Duck Commander Shotgun – This versatile, all-purpose 12-gauge 3 ½-inch shotgun melds the hard-hitting performance of the 835 Ulti-Mag with the traditional barrel profile of the 500 pump-action for lighter weight and improved balance without sacrificing downrange performance. The soft-angled Uni-Line receiver of the 535 marries perfectly with the stock for eye/rib alignment and quick target acquisition. This fully-camouflaged 535 ATS Waterfowl (45241) pump-action has a 28-inch vent rib, ported barrel; TRU-BEAD fiber optic front sight; and ACCU-MAG choke tube set (Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder).

This versatile all-purpose platform combines matte OD Green metal finishes with Realtree Max-5 camouflaged stock and forend; 28-inch vent rib, ported barrel; TRU-BEAD fiber optic front sight; and ACCU-CHOKE™ tube set (Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder).

The specially-designed Super Bantam has a 12-inch LOP but includes an insert that can be added, extending the LOP by an extra inch. Other key features to enhance fit and ease-of-handling include a shorter 22-inch barrel (vent rib, ported) length; EZ-Reach™ forearm; shortened pistol grip; and shot-limiting plug to start young shooters off with a single-shot. MSRP: $556 – $835

The SA-20 Waterfowl (75784) has matte blue metal finishes with MAX-5 camo stock and forend and comes with a 28-inch vent rib, ported barrel; TRUGLO TRU-BEAD fiber optic front sight; and Sport Set choke tube set (Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder and Cylinder).
