Welcome to the forum. Why don't you stop by the introduction area and let everyone know you are here.


IMHO, you can beat the price, it's called a Marlin XL7. Trust me, I've owned both in 30-06 and the XL7 is a much better rifle.

the 4x4 mossberg is just a revamped ATR100. if they shoot like the ATR100, they have massive recoil! even in 30-06. i had an ATR100 in 30-06, was not pleased with it at all, worked hard to reduce the recoil, but it felt more like a 300 win. mag. than a 30-06! buy the Marlin XL7, you will be much happier. i ended up trading my ATR100 for a 44mag. pistol. BTW, i have three of the Marlin X7's, XL7 in 25-06, XS7 in 7mm-08 and the XL7VH in 308. i plan on replacing my 30-06 with the XL7. these guns are accurate and priced reasonable.

I can second axxe's comments on the recoil. My ATR, while accurate, was unpleasant to shoot. The XL7 felt recoil in 30-06 is mild in comparison. I can shoot my Marlin all day with no problems.

i wonder if it has anything to do with the material the stock is made out of? because even my Marlin's have hollow stocks. i fill all of my hollow stocks with expanding foam to quiet them down. i tried it with the Mossberg to help dampen the recoil, but had no affect.

I think it has more to do with the recoil pad then the stock itself. The marlin is post bedded but I don't see that having much impact on felt recoil.

i do like the marlins better! the mossberg was pretty accurate with handloads i made for it, but after shooting 50+ rounds on a day of target shooting, my shoulder was very sore! if all a person was going to do was hunt with it, then it would be a decent and inexpensive rifle to go hunting on the cheap. but i do lots more target shooting than hunting. i do plan on buying a marlin XL7 in 30-06, you can never go wrong with a 30-06!
