Mossberg’s NEW MVP Rifle

Finally got a chance to upload the images of Mossberg‘s new rifle: The MVP. MVP stands for Mossberg Varmint Predator. According to Linda Powell with Mossberg the rifle will initially be available in .223 Remington and in two configurations; a plain rifle and a rifle with a scope and bi-bod. Neither will cost more than $ 800.00. Both rifles are on a varmint style stock but you can expect other versions to follow I’m sure. I’ll be hunting with this rifle in June and offering a full report in the NRA American Hunter magazine. For more information click HERE MOSSBERG has finally announced their own AR 15.

    Nice looking rig. I like the idea of a bolt gun I can use my AR Mags in. Cool. I hope it shoots straight.

    Finally! Mossberg just got my business. Hey, Savage, Ruger, et al — are you paying attention?

  5. Dave says:

    Wow. I’ve been waiting for something like this for years. The important thing here is the use of common magazines and hopefully a build quality that actually allows it to accel as a varmint rifle.

    As to why: Number one would be to save on brass! I grew up reloading as it was the only affordable way to shoot center fire, it is still important. Second would be to allow for a wider array of ammo possibly stuff that isn’t autoloader friendly. Third a clip feed rifle is easy to lock up with a long padlock. Fourth to hunt varmints all I need is a scope, all those rail mounted bangles are just dead weight.

    I can see this rifle being very successful.

    Ken,

    Thanks for your email. The MVP Series of rifles is a very exciting and innovative concept. Due to a delay from a vendor, who is supplying some parts, production will not begin until later this month. I would anticipate MVP Varmint rifles on dealer’s shelves in March. Look for more introductions to this family of bolt-action rifles later this year.

    Several publications have featured very-detailed reviews of the MVP rifle. One of the best was in the November issue of RifleShooter magazine.

    Thanks again for your comments.

    Best regards,

    I purchased my MVP a few months ago, it has all the bells and whistles I planned on doing to another .223 plus the ar mag.and the price was great(when you can find them instock) i could still afford bullets! I was very happy with the way it shoots. One inch at 100YRDS with rem umc 55grains, on a very windy day.With a Nikon P-223 3x9x40. some fine-tuning with my reloading skills and it will be a tack driver!
