O.F. Mossberg & Sons, more commonly known as Mossberg, is an American arms manufacturer that was founded in 1919 by Swedish-born Oscar Frederick Mossberg alongside his two sons. Mossberg came to the United States in 1886, where he worked in a bicycle factory owned by Iver Johnson. Though the company was founded on the Mossberg Brownie, a four-barreled handgun chambered in .22 LR, it is now known the world over for producing exceptional rifles and shotguns.
The Mossberg Tactical .22 is the company's first foray into the world of the .22-caliber AR-15 platform. This semi-automatic rifle is unlike an actual AR-15 in that it is not only chambered for a different cartridge but also utilizes a blowback system of operation rather than a direct impingement gas system. Both lightweight and easy to shoot, the Tactical .22 is great for first-time shooters, recreational shooting and small-game hunting. Each purchase of the rifle comes with a single 25-round magazine. But you know as well as I that a single 25-round magazine is not enough, which is why the new Mossberg Tactical .22 magazine is offered.
As noted the Mossberg Tactical .22 magazine is an original factory-produced magazine manufactured by O.F. Mossberg & Sons for the Tactical .22 rifle. As such, it benefits from the performance and reliability you would expect from any Mossberg factory product and will fit and function in any Tactical .22 rifle. The magazine is designed to hold and feed 25 rounds of .22 LR ammunition. It features a full polymer construction, which removes the possibility for rust or corrosion – an occurrence typically associated with steel-bodied magazines. In addition to its load-assist button – a feature included on several similar magazines – each magazine ships with an easy-to-use magazine loader that makes squeezing in the last few cartridges a breeze.
Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out original, factory-produced magazines as they are manufactured by the same company and to the exact same specifications and tolerances as those that ship with the firearms for which they are designed. Additionally, they are manufactured using the same materials, a provision which ensures both proper fit and function in your firearm.
