Default Thoughts on Mossberg MVP

I have been looking for a new gun and this one looks like it fits the bill. I was wondering if anybody else has one, specifically the one chambered in 5.56, and in the varmint configuration. There isn't a TON of information out there about it, and i was wondering what you guys's thoughts were on it?

I've had an MVP in 5.56 but with a shorter barrel. Very nice package, good style. One quibble, and you won't know until it's loaded, is how the bolt cycles. The bolt face has a lower lip that bumps into the top round in the AR type mag and forces it into the chamber. Not as smooth as most other hunting rifles.

I have the 20" sporter and it is capable of sub moa. I did not want the heavy varmint configuration. The bolt is not the smoothest but the trigger is good and I have had no problems feeding from 10 round mags. No problems shooting milsurp. It is a keeper.

Mossberg is a reliable gun I'm faithful to my 12 gauge and the ar15 is not exactly top of the line but don't throw it off the list just yet ....the words the vise president of Mossberg " we try to make a great firearm but at reasonable price for the common cost of living....so there ant much wiggle room but we haven't had to many complaints so we must be doin something right"

If you can get a great deal on a MVP go for it. But there are so many rifles in that price range that have a better reputation than the MVP. Just about any rifle in that price range will shoot a 1" group or better at 100 yards. J&G sales had a bunch of used Mossberg rifles in various calibers. I don't know what they have left at this time.

Rifles with a bull barrel can be a handful to shoot unsupported. I would shoot a rifle with a bull barrel unsupported before I bought one.

Mossberg has an excellent reputation for quality made guns at a decent price. i have owned many over the years and have been more than pleased with their quality and accuracy. you can buy a Mossberg with confidence in that you are getting a firearm that will last for a good number of years and do it's job.

the MVP in 308 is the one i am interested in personally. heavy barreled varmint and target rifles are not designed for long treks carrying them all day long for hunting or for shooting unsupported as mentioned. they are designed for shooting off of a rest or bipods or from a bench of some sorts. they are heavy in the barrel area and not meant to be carried and swung like lightweight sporter barreled hunting rifles. my lightest heavy barreled rifle, with the scope mounted weighs over ten pounds and one even weighs over 13.5 lbs with its scope mounted. neither are suited for long treks in the woods.

There isnt much competition for the MVP. Where is there another bolt 5.56x45 that will use AR mags?
