Producing Quality Firearms Since 1919
O.F. Mossberg & Sons, more commonly called simply Mossberg, has been a powerhouse in the firearm industry since 1919. Headquartered out of North Haven, Connecticut, there initial product was a four-barrel .22 caliber handgun named the “Brownie.” After achieving initial success with this weapon, they branched out to .22 rifles and shotguns as well. During the 1940s and through the 1960s, Mossberg worked on their Hi line .22 caliber target and sporting rifles. Towards the end of that decade, they ceased operations and focused on their shotguns, rifles, and sporting scopes. Today, they continue to be a major manufacturer, with many recognizing their shotguns as offering the best value in the industry.
