    POTD: Lifestyle - Mossberg Patriot 308 with Vortex Strike Eagle

    One of the goals of TFB’s Photo Of The Day is to share treasures from the world of firearms, while giving credit to the photographer. Today I think Holt Works Photography really managed to capture the “lifestyle” in the image above. We see a Mossberg Patriot .308 Win bolt-action rifle with a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-8×24 scope. There are more details about the build below.

    POTD: Lifestyle - Mossberg Patriot 308 with Vortex Strike Eagle

    Custom 16” @mossbergcorp Patriot 308 has been an awesome lightweight bolt gun that I can throw on the 4 wheeler or back of the truck.

    @class_3_machining killed it with this tricky chop and thread on the @mossbergcorp Patriot Walnut .308

    With the super light fluted barrel contour we didn’t have enough material for a 5/8-24 thread. Morgan cut it down to 16” and turned a 1/2-28 thread perfectly concentric to the bore.

    I grabbed a @rearden_mfg RPB muzzle brake in 1/2-28 but with a .375” bore for the 308. This allows me to run a @diligentdefenseco Enticer S with a Rearden Atlas mount.

    @class_3_machining does incredible work with super fast turn around (currently about a week) and the lowest price that I’ve paid to date.

    My @mossbergcorp Patriot 308 guide gun is ready to go!!
