Mossberg MVP

Post by Absintheur » Tue Feb 21, 2012 5:41 pm

My dealer called me to let me know the Mossberg MVP I had on order since last summer is finally going to show up. To me this will make for a great rifle with many features I like, most noticeably it uses AR magazines and is chambered for 5.56 and will handle the .223 as well. Other things I like include the stock design which is well suited for bipod and rear bag use with a wide flat forend and benchrest style buttstock. The barrel is rifle buttoned which I feel is a superior rifling method to the more common hammer forged used on many rifles today. In addition it has a user friendly adjustable trigger.

With a 1 in 9 twist rate it should handle the 60 grain VMax/Varget load my AR's are very fond of as well as the excellent BVAC 55 grain VMax loads. Will have to sort out a scope for it but I have several that should work well with it in the scope drawer. I have a decent 6X18 as well as a pretty nice 6x24 available right now I think. I will also order the Tubb's Final Finish bullet kit for this rifle to smooth the throat and remove any burrs or chatter marks. It comes with Weaver mount and I know I have a couple different heights of Burris steel rings hanging around. And I already have a plethora of AR 20 round magazines and even a couple of 5 and 10 rounders.

They need to scrap the tacticool levergun and make a folding stocked scout version of the MVP.

Seems like it would be a natural for a nice aftermarket stock...wonder if anyone will make one for it

Very nice, I look forward to hearing about how she preforms. And as a side note: the Tubb's Final Finish kit isn't really necessary. If you do normal break-in procedures she will shoot just fine. I've never seen a rifle benefit from the Final Finish system, and that's coming from several years of competitive shooting experience.

I'll be eagerly awaiting for a review of this gun. It has peaked my interest. I'd really like to see some more barrel options though, as I'd like to use a gun like this with heavier bullets(We don't do much varminting here in Norway). Hopefully there'll be aftermarket barrels.

We have one of these in the store i work at. She feels great, action cycles beautifully, but the mag feels a bit wobbly. Idk if that would impede proper function.

In reality, the stock thats on her feels good and solid. I dont think shed need a new one

Im in lust over it. Id buy it if the tranny in my car didnt just go out.

And chamber it in 6.5 gendel and 300 BO. Haut.

I'd love to see a review of this rifle, I've been interested since I first heard about it.

How is the action with a loaded mag in it?
I've had concerns about the spring tension causing a lot of resistance on the bolt.

I should think that would mostly depend on the size and brand of magazine, since some seem to be easier to load/unload than others.

Except for the slim barrel nut, it looks similar to a short-action Rem. 700.

I wonder how close they are in size and dimension?
