    Who makes Mossberg 4x4 actions? I ask this because the action, trigger, and bolt look very similar if not exactly the same as what I am seeing on the Savage Arms website.

    to the best of my knowledge, Mossberg makes their own actions. they do use a barrel and nut system very similiar to the Savage, as does the Marlin X7 series. the bolt on the Mossberg looks very similiar to the Remington M700 to me.

    Mossberg.....
    The way the barrel is attached in very "Savage", but the actual action is more Remington-esk.

    Thanks. My 4x4 is the older version without the "cool" twist to the bolt. My rifle also has the fluted barrel and muzzle break. Just a warning, I'm about to have several threads in the rifle forum in the next few days.

    Well I'm thinking of selling my current hunting rifle since it is not configured very well to be a hunting rifle and buying something a little more towards my liking. Just keep your eyes peeled for another thread from me in the next few days after I finish my research and narrow it down to a few options.

    Mossberg just expanded their long gun manufacturing facility in Eagle Pass, Texas with a new 116,000 sq foot building.

    HQ is still in Connecticut. They've been manufacturing in Texas since 1989.

    the Eagle Pass, Texas facility is where Mossberg makes the Maverick M88 shotguns at. the M88 is pretty much a Mossberg M500 with a different trigger group and safety.
