Mossberg's contributions to the firearms market are many and proliferate throughout other manufacturers' products. In fact, the North Haven, Connecticut-based manufacturer on its website affirms: "Since 1919, Mossberg has been the leader in introducing important design breakthroughs to the firearm industry. Many product features pioneered by Mossberg are now the standards by which all modern firearms are judged."
It continues: "Our design and innovative edge is truly changing the way shooters use shotguns and rifles. We are particularly proud that our Mossberg pump shotguns are the only shotguns purchased by the U.S. Government that meet or exceed Mil-S-3443 specifications. It is this basis of unquestionable quality that drives Mossberg to bring reliable, well-built shooting systems to you at an affordable price."
