Finally a major gun manufacturer has produced a 5.56mm chambered bolt action that uses the AR-15 magazine. This gives the operator a lot of flexibility, allowing them to choose from any number of aftermarket magazines in a variety of capacities from 5 rounds right up to 60 rounds (I don’t think a 100 or 150 round C-Mag would fit the rifle).
Mossberg MVP (Mossberg Varmint Predator) Series, as the name suggests, has been designed for varmint & predator hunters and long-range competitive shooters. It features a pillar bedded benchrest / varmint style stock, a fluted medium bull barrel and fluted bolt. It uses the Mossberg LBA user-adjustable trigger.
