    I'm thinking of getting this gun and, ya its pretty ugly but I know I can customize it to look a lot better it'll be a little project. My only concern is, can I take off the top part I think its a carry handle?

    Here's a forum that has a picture....(I don't know how to put my own picture)

    doesn't look ugly to me!
    my only concern with that gun would be...can i find bigger mags for it?!? :D

    i know nothing about this weapon. so im sorry for posting on your thread. but im looking to get myself a 22. and being a mossberg i bet its quality ;]

    to me it doesn't look like that top rail comes off..but you should look into it...but why not just mount a nice red dot on top or something? :p

    And also I found out you can't even switch off the handguard. I think I'm just going to get the mp5 clone instead for like $400.

    Have you considered the s&w 22lr version? Its a little pricier but a fantastic gun.

    If you dont want to spend the $ on a s&w an mp5 clone sounds fun.

    If its anything over $400 might as well save up to get a 6.5 grendel so that I can hunt with.

    That would be my suggestion or an ar-10 if you want a hunting gun

    The ar-10 is a bit heavier then the average at-15 and every pound count when your walking miles in the wild.

    Fair enough. Do you want an AR cause its an ar? Or because its a light weight rifle?

    I got me one of the mossbergs and for $285 I'm not gonna complain. The rails can hold any ar attachment so for the price it's a fun little rifle.

    Do you know if you can take off the carry handle or the hand guard? Because I searched it online and someone said no but I'm not sure

    On mine you can't take the handle off but like I said for $286 out the door I'm cool with it. I just mounted a scope on it so it wasn't much of a deal to me. The one posted in the link here looks pretty cool though.

    They had those on sale awhile back for $189 and I went to get one, but when I held it I wasn't to impressed with it. To much plastic and the mag was a real pain to remove. But all was not lost I spent $400 for a mk22 a 22lr SCAR clone. And I am glad I did I had a friend that did buy the Mossberg and he didn't keep it long.he sold it and got a mk22.

    I ordered mine from PSA, it was their "daily deal", the discount canceled the shipping cost.

    I have not decided to keep it long term, I have some nephews that could enjoy a 22lr when they visit their paw paw.

    6.5 Grendel and the 715T or the flat top are apples and oranges.
    If you can afford to pay 5 to 10 times the price of the Mossberg tactical, of course you should go for it!

    Took my Mossy Tactical 22 to the range last Tuesday. It shoots great with the Tru Glo red dot. The magazine is a little cheesy, but overall it is fun to shoot. Cheap carbine practice.

    I've got the same exact setup. Love it! I agree the mags are a bit cheesy, but the gun works fine. The only negative I have is cleaning it. Too many little screws to mess with and its a PITA. For $250, it's hard to beat, though.
