FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. May 9, 2018
NORTH HAVEN, CT – O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, announced today its decision
to discontinue selling products to Dick’s Sporting Goods, and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring of
gun control lobbyists in April 2018.
Effective immediately, O.F. Mossberg & Sons will not accept any future orders from Dick’s Sporting Goods or Field &
Stream, and is in the process of evaluating current contractual agreements.
“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun
control.” said Iver Mossberg, Chief Executive Officer of O.F. Mossberg & Sons. “Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch
supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’
recent anti-Second Amendment actions.”
Consumers are urged to visit one of the thousands of pro-Second Amendment firearm retailers to make their purchases
of Mossberg and Maverick® firearms. Firearm retailers can be found through the Mossberg Dealer Locator by visiting

Founded in 1919, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. is the oldest family-owned firearms manufacturer in America, and is the
largest pump-action shotgun manufacturer in the world. Leading the way with over 100 design and utility patents to its
credit, and standing as the first ISO 9001 Certified long-gun manufacturer, Mossberg is considered to be one of the most

Mossberg is standing by the American people by refusing any further sales to Dick’s Sporting Goods Friends and Neighbors, and this proves they are putting our principals and freedoms ahead of their bottom line. This is something not seen very often in the corporate world, I have always looked at us as gun enthusiasts as more of an extended family and not suit and tie corporate America.
