Issue 05 Preview – Shotgun Shuffle Steven Kuo Join the Conversation Salient Arms International Beefs up the Mossberg 930 Ever since the days of the blunderbuss in the 17th century, soldiers, lawmen, hunters, sportsmen, and citizens have enjoyed the multifaceted shotgun. It’s a venerable, versatile, and fearsome weapon system. Many refer to it as the “thinking man’s” weapon. With birdshot, it can bring down game and clay birds. With buck and slugs, it can take out larger game or defend against the most dangerous two-legged kind. Salient Arms International wants to take this weapon and push the envelope, so it’s teaming up with Mossberg to not only give the latter company’s line of 930 shotguns a facelift, but also revamp it from the inside out.

The brothers explain that their objective is to produce cutting-edge firearms that optimize performance without sacrificing reliability and the core strengths and characteristics of any particular weapon system.
