New Stock Finishes Further Expand Line-Up
O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., continues to expand their AR-magazine compatible bolt-action rifle series with the addition of 7.62mm NATO (308 Win) and 300 AAC Blackout (300 BLK) offerings of the Mossberg MVP Patrol Rifle and the option of a textured tan stock in 5.56mm NATO and 7.62mm NATO. Based on the classic Mossberg 4×4 bolt action, these highly-innovative carbine rifles feature patent-pending designs that accept and reliably-feed from both M1A/M14 and AR10-style magazines (7.62mm) and AR15-style magazines (5.56mm/300 BLK). Five new tactical offerings join this purpose-built series for 2014.
Innovation was at the core of the Mossberg MVP Series, when the first varmint-style rifle was introduced in 2011. Its patent-pending Drop-Push™ hinged-bolt design allowed the use of AR15-style magazines; a first for bolt-action rifles. Now a second, patent-pending bolt design allows the MVP rifles chambered in 7.62mm NATO (308 Win) to accept both M1A/M14 and AR10-style magazines.
Standard features on the new MVP Patrol rifles include a 16 ¼-inch medium bull, buttoned-rifled, threaded barrel with A2-style suppressor (a thread cap is included to allow removal of suppressor); Mossberg’s Lightning Bolt Action (LBA) Trigger System that is user-adjustable from 2 to 7 pounds; coarse textured stock with stippling on the pistol grip in black or optional tan finish (5.56mm and 7.62mm); non-reflective, matte blue finish on exposed metalwork; optimal twist rates for bullet stabilization; factory-mounted Picatinny rail; front fiber optic and barrel-mounted adjustable rear rifle sights (5.56mm and 7.62mm); distinctive fluted bolt; front and rear sling swivel studs; and 10-round capacity magazine.
