From the book; Mossberg More gun for the money.
"in early 1973, Mossberg purchased the stock of the HP Snyder company of Little Falls,NY. " At the time we bought Snyder, they mostly made bikes for DP Harris under the "Rollfast" name, as well as contracts for Montgomery Ward. Shortly thereafter, we started selling them to Western Auto, Sears, and other distributors we had contracts with for the firearms and other products. Mossberg marketed their bicycles under their own brand rather than Snyder. Most of these bikes were sold to the contract market, and were therefore never stamped with the Mossberg name, but those sold to the smaller accounts did carry the Mossberg logo on the frame-a distinctive crest sheild in red,yellow,and blue with armored helmet above the shield and full Mossberg name below the emblem. Around 1976, Mossberg lost their big contracts with DP Harris and Wards, and closed the bike business."
