A Review Of The Mossberg MVP

The Mossberg MVP rifle caught my eye at the 2011 NRA Annual Meeting. Like the Ruger Gunsite Scout, it is a bolt-action rifle that uses detachable magazines. Unlike the Ruger, the MVP takes off-the-shelf AR-15 magazines. Later this year, Mossberg is supposed to release a shorter barreled Scout version of the MVP. Not that I need another rifle in .223 or even another varmint rifle but this one intrigues me.

This video review is from the Kentucky Gun Company. I don't know these folks but they seem to do a good job reviewing the rifle. I just wish they didn't have their store logo cluttering up the screen so much.

One thing that caught my eye was the difference in the grouping of the Prvi Partisan ammo versus the Remington UMC. I think I'll be buying some of the Prvi Partisan to test out.

  1. I have the MVP with the 24" barrel. As I only bench rest shoot due to my arthritis I had my gunsmith bring the trigger down to bench rest quality. Using commercially available 55 grain FMJ-BT I was Able to shoot five three round groups at 100 yards that were basically one hole. I am amazed at how well the MVP shoots.
