Brief History of O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc.
Oscar Frederick Mossberg and his two sons, Iver and
Harold, founded the company in 1919. To this day, it is the oldest
family owned firearms manufacturer in America and is the largest
pump-action shotgun manufacturer in the world.
Their first firearm was a four barreled .22 handgun
known as the “Brownie”. Currently Mossberg has over 100 design and
utility patents and was the first to introduce Monte Carlo style stocks,
molded trigger housings, spring-loaded quick release swivels, the first
3- 1/2” chambered 12 gauge shotgun, and the first firearm manufacturer
to be ISO 9001 certified.
Early in its manufacturing history, Mossberg began to
earn the reputation for building “more gun for the money”, producing
quality, extremely dependable firearms at an affordable price.
The Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun was designed and
marketed in 1962. The 500 series utilizes an aluminum receiver to reduce
weight. The bolt assembly uses a steel bolt lock that engages a recess
in the barrel extension for steel-on-steel lock up.
Since 1979, The Mossberg 500 is used by all branches
of the U.S. Armed Forces. When it comes to proving itself in the field,
millions of satisfied customers can’t be wrong.
