The first product of Mossberg Firearms was a .22 caliber pocket pistol. Mossberg began manufacturing rifles in 1922, but what Mossberg is really known for are their shotguns.
Mossberg manufacturers high-quality low-priced autoloading and pump shotguns. In addition, Mossberg also manufactures Maverick shotguns, which represent an even greater value for the shtgun buyer.

New to the Mossberg line this year is the All Terrain Rifle (ATR). These rifles have MSRP’s that range from $382-$425. It is my understanding that the world’s largest retailer is selling this rifle for around $300. Top this blaster off with decent optics, sling, and ammo and you have a good hunting set-up for under $600, for that matter under $500. Looks like Mossberg has a receipe for success.
