    A Connecticut gun manufacturer has struck a deal with the famous faces from reality TV’s “Duck Dynasty” and is creating a line of firearms dedicated to waterfowl hunting in the spirit of the show.

    The multi-year deal was announced over the summer and the firearms, created by North Haven's Mossberg & Sons, will be available this winter. The Duck Commander series includes 19 shotguns, two rifles and a pistol, as pictured on the Mossberg & Sons website.

    “America’s oldest family-owned and operated firearms manufacturer,” founded in 1919, created the line in conjunction with the Duck Commander crew, comprised of reality stars Phil Robertson, his son Willie and family members Uncle Si, Jase, Jep and Alan.

    “Mossberg is extremely proud to partner with Duck Commander to further promote hunting, shooting sports and family values,” said Mossberg & Sons CEO Iver Mossberg in a statement.

    Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson also expressed his excitement about the partnership.

    “As an iconic, hard-working American product, made by a family-owned company, Mossberg is a perfect partnership for our team,” Robertson said in a statement.

    The firearms' release is forthcoming, but it's not clear exactly when they'll hit the shelves.
