Might be old news, buddy Thom just passed it onto me.

There are a couple versions.

Al, It looks like a good value.

Mossberg did a lot of things right. Adjustable trigger, detachable mag, and lots of stippling, and around $400 MSRP. Hope it's a shooter!

I was at a LGS on Wednesday and got a chance to look at the Mossberg 450 Patriot Predator. This is the cheapest of the Mossberg 450s. IIRC the price on it was $329.99. No brake but barrel is thread with thread end cap. Rifle felt lighter compared to the Ruger RAR, 16.25" barrel. If it was me, I would spend the extra bucks and get the RAR. It might just be me, but the Mossberg just had a cheap feel to it.
I wished they would have had the version that had the Walnut stock and 20" barrel so I could have given that a look.

The only thing wrong is the 1-24 twist the one in 1-16 is better and a longer barrel would be nice.

Depends on what you're trying to do.
1:24 should stabilize up to a 400-450gr jacketed bullet going supersonic, IIRC. Should handle up to 300-350gr monolithic copper's, too. That's in the range of what most people shoot in this cartridge. If your going super heavy's and/or subs, then a tighter twist rate would be warranted.
