Mossberg Wins Shotgun of the Year and Trigger of the Year Awards at 2018 Industry Choice Awards

North Haven, CT – ( – At the recent 2018 Industry Choice Awards (ICA), held at the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Kentucky, Mossberg was recognized with top honors in two categories. The 590M™ Mag-Fed 12-gauge shotgun received the “Shotgun of the Year” award and the Mossberg JM Pro Adjustable Match Trigger garnered the award for “Trigger of the Year.” Winners in the nine ICA categories were presented with their awards on June 9, 2018.

The Industry Choice Awards require manufacturers to submit products to be evaluated by a committee selected from end-user groups, who convene to determine winners by ranking products on fit, form, finish and functionality. Evaluators engage in thorough, unbiased, hands-on testing before selecting award winners. Retailers, distributors, professional shooters, law enforcement and military personnel, and trained instructors comprise the committee.

“Mossberg continues to be an industry-leading manufacturer of ground-breaking firearm designs and performance-enhancing accessories,” commented John MacLellan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “And it is a tremendous honor to receive acknowledgement from the industry for the ICA Shotgun of the Year and Trigger of the Year.”

The 590M Mag-Fed 12-gauge is built on Mossberg’s legendary pump-action platform combined with the world’s first double-stack, 10-round shotgun magazine; making this mag-fed shotgun ideal for home security and competitive applications.
