Established in 1919, Mossberg of North Haven, Connecticut in the United States has been a renowned leader in introducing important design breakthroughs in the global firearm industry. Many product features pioneered by Mossberg are now the standards by which all modern firearms are judged. This is largely due to the manufacturer’s ‘shooting system’ approach, which means all improvements will fit older firearms as well. An indication of Mossberg’s status in the industry is that its pump shotguns are the only shotguns purchased by the United States government that meet or exceed Mil-S-3443 specifications. The manufacturer’s approach to its firearms is reliable, well-built shooting systems of unquestionable quality, yet which are available at an affordable price.
Mossberg has been designing, engineering, manufacturing, and testing firearms for a century.
A CENTURY OF CRAFTMANSHIP
Mossberg has been designing, engineering, manufacturing, and testing firearms for a century, which attests to the level of craftsmanship attested to by the family name. Indeed, the manufacturer is the oldest and largest family-owned firearm manufacturer in the United States. This means that acquiring a Mossberg weapon means that, ultimately, you own a piece of firearm history. The latest MMR™ Pro rifle from Mossberg is being punted as delivering the 3 Gun features all shooters are looking for in order to push the envelope in an increasingly competitive shooting market.
The new JM Pro drop-in match trigger provides a crisp, creep-free break.
JM PRO DROP-IN MATCH TRIGGER
The new JM Pro drop-in match trigger (featuring a 4 lb pull) has been designed in conjunction with 3 Gun Champion Jerry Miculek. It provides a crisp, creep-free break, in conjunction with user-adjustable overtravel.
In addition, the precision-machined housing ensures proper sear engagement. Dubbed ‘The Greatest Shooter of all Time’, Jerry is an American professional speed and competition shooter known for his many world records and television appearances, including his family owned YouTube channel Miculekdotcom.
BEST ALL-ROUND SHOOTER IN THE WORLD
Born in 1954, Jerry is renowned as the fastest and best all-round shooter in the world at present, emptying a five-shot revolver in 0.57 seconds in a group the size of a playing card. Jerry currently holds five officially-sanctioned world records in revolver shooting. This is in addition to more than 15 unsanctioned records, with firearms ranging from rapid firing pistols to the Barrett M107 .50 BMG rifle. His accomplishments include six shots in .98 seconds with a Barrett M107 50 BMG rifle and a 1 000-yard shot off-hand with his signature 9 mm Smith & Wesson revolver. Adding to Jerry’s all-round accomplishments is his expert capability as an experienced gunsmith, known for tuning and adjusting his own firearms for optimum function.

The secret to the technological breakthrough provided by the MMR™ Pro rifle from Mossberg centres on the direct-impingement gas system. This allows for smooth, shot-after-shot reliability, even under the toughest and most gruelling competitive conditions. Additional features that make this rifle the envy of all 3 Gun enthusiasts include a 7075 T6 aluminium-forged receiver, a free-floating, 18" button-rifled, 416 stainless steel barrel with a 1:8 RH twist rate, a phosphate and military-specification hard-coat anodised metal finishes, forward-assist, and an ejection port dust cover for added protection from the elements. The MMR™ Pro rifle from Mossberg is also supplied with a 30-round Magpul PMAG magazine. In addition, the precision-machined housing ensures proper sear engagement.
MODULAR MOUNTING SYSTEM
Mossberg’s 15" slim-profile forend/hand guard in particular deploys the M-LOK modular mounting system. In addition, the full-length top rail accommodates a wide variety of accessories, including iron sights and optics (not included with the rifle itself ). The MMR™ Pro from Mossberg boasts standard features such as a forward and ejection port dust cover for added protection from the elements. A six-position stock provides 3.25" length-of-pull (LOP) adjustment by means of an integrated lever. The FLEX™ system recoil pad is interchangeable with three other thicknesses for added flexibility in terms of LOP (these pads sold separately). The charging motion is fluid and fast from either the strong or the support side, thanks to the AXTS Raptor™ ambidextrous charging handle. The 18" AISI 416 stainless steel barrel comes with SilencerCo’s three-port muzzlebrake, featuring a suppressor-ready ASR mount that is compatible with multiple suppressor models.
In addition, City Guns imports the 30-06 and .308 Winchester. It can also supply the Mossberg 4x4 bolt-action rifle, the latest iteration of the hugely successful 100 ATR™ bolt-action rifle. This features a rock-solid design and affordability, slim-line grip, forend barrel vents, and soft, recoil-absorbing butt pad, among other features.
