What do you guys think of this as a handy, lightweight bolt action .223 rifle?  I've been thinking of a bolt action in .223 for some time and really wish Ruger had a scaled down version of their GSR simply for familiarity's sake.  Ruger's got their M77 Tactical, but I despise Hogue stocks, no iron sights, and it's way too expensive for what it is.  The Mossberg seems like an alternative since I really gotta think about my pocketbook.

The fact that it uses AR mags appeals to me, but I can't help but wonder how "indestructible" the bolt is with that little hangy-down thing that catches the cartridge rim.  I have a Mini 14 for my .223 shooting, but I can't help but be intrigued with this thing.  My Mini's never given me a problem, is very accurate, but after using my GSR over the past year, I've come to really like these bolt action rifles.

My only experience with Mossberg has been with their 930SPX shotgun, which was a fine firearm.  I know absolutely nothing about their rifles.

Truth be told I'm not quite sure what Mossberg is up to these days.

I suppose it doesn't automatically suck...the proof being in the pudding and all.

I have the first version of the MVP. It can miss a feed once in a while, but not with ten round mags. My twenty round mags are  vitnam era though.......
The hangy down thingy hasnt broken on mine, and I am not nice or gentle with my working rifles.
The pictured little rifle is a great idea and very useful.

Mossberg  is suppsed to make one in 308, not sure which magazine it takes. The bolt face has two projections to catch the rounds in the magazithinne instead of the hanging thingy. Good idea, especially if it takes the Springfield Armory 5 and 10 round M14 magazines.

I was ho-hum on the MVP, but I like this.  I have an integrally suppressed 77/22 that is my most-used rifle and have thought a bigger brother would be nice.  I was thinking of a suppressed 77/44, but an MVP Patrol in .300 Blackout and a can might be a better way to go.
A seven pound (plus can), suppressed, .30 cal, mag-fed rifle; yeah, that does sound interesting.

Dang, someone needs to be cracking out Ruger AI bottom metal. I can see the Hawkeye Predator getting some work done then... Shocked

I traded for one on Friday, not because I have super high expectations but because I wanted something short and handy in 223 to shoot squirels around the farm with. I really had to cogitate over it but what put me over the edge was that I have some grandsons who are ready to transition beyond the rimfire realm.

18.5 inch barrel, good, 13 inch LOP good, overall length very handy.
I hope it is going to end up being a very useful little rifle for all of us willing to give it try.

I wouldn't mind hearing your impressions of it in a review thread.  Would be nice to hear something from someone without any bias.

So you seem pretty pleased with yours Frank?  I'd imagine the guts are the same.  Hell, my GSR misfeeds once in a while too. Wink

I am kinda happy with it, I did cause the ectractor to come out of the bolt face scrubbing with GI toothbrush. The 1/8 inch ball bearing was lost , bought five hundred at Fastenall for $.80. Cleaned the recess and deburred it, works better than new. PMag is going to make ten round magazines, maybe after they move from commie colorado to Wyoming(hint). The rifle is accurateand i like it for a calling rifle. Mine is a bit long for general use though. This patrol rifle is a good idea and I am thinking of trading into one, nice and short, handy, easy to attach a can, even has iron sights.

I was looking at the MVP also. Got the CZ527 in the end. Both seem to be very similar in weight and size however I like the fact the MVP is already threaded as I will need to thread the CZ for a suppressor. Plus the Mossberg is a 1-9 twist which I think is more handy these days for use with the heavy .223 ammo.

The CZ just caught my eye with a nice blue and a wood stock.

The good points of the MVP over the CZ are threaded barrel, AR mags, 1-9 twist and rail on top of the receiver. I think it should be a nice little rifle.

Cheers.

Was checking out an MVP over the weekend at LGS... I like the LOP, mag feed, and the trigger wasn't horrible.   I'll be holding out for this new factory threaded & iron sighted patrol model, but I definitely see one in my future.  Just can't decide between .300 BLK & 5.56.    Huh

I'd like to add a peep sight to the rear of the action and a small QD red dot at the front.  Should be able to do both without resorting to a custom scout mount.
