Never Before... O.F. Mossberg and Sons is an American company founded in 1919 by Swedish emigrant Oscar Frederick Mossberg. Today, the company is the oldest family owned, U.S. based firearms manufacturer in the nation. The MVP (which stands for Mossberg Varmint Predator) is a detachable magazine, bolt action rifle chambered for the ever popular .223REM/5.56 cartridge. While there's nothing particularly fancy about the gun, Mossberg did equip this rifle with several clever and unique features that make it highly functional.

At the heart of the design is an action fed by standard AR-15 / M-16 pattern magazines. The rifle ships out with one 10- round metal magazine, which is arguably the most practical size for shooting in a prone position, from a bipod or off a bench. If you happen to already own a pile of 30- rounders and don't run into any clearance issues, a major advantage of the MVP is you can enjoy hunting prairie dogs all day using a precision bolt action rifle, get plenty of trigger time in, while others spend the majority of their day reloading an internal box magazine.

Anyone who has ever experienced the thrill of high volume hunting understands the value of having large capacity magazines readily available. Interchangeability with one of the most prolific weapons platforms in the world is also a huge bonus. Unlike the Mossberg MVP, most other detachable magazine bolt rifles use proprietary mags which are cost prohibitive, not offered in a wide selection of sizes and are relatively scarce. AR-15 magazines are inexpensive and sold in practically every gun shop, sporting goods or hardware store around the country in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 60 or 100 round configurations.

Never before has a production bolt action rifle been capable of accepting military style high capacity magazines. While the concept sounds simple, there were numerous mechanical hurdles Mossberg had to overcome to make the project become a reality-- namely engineering an action capable of holding magazines originally held in place by a side release button on an AR-15 lower receiver. To solve this problem, the Mossberg MVP's action is machined from solid bar stock and rests on a polymer bedding block. An integral magazine well is fitted with a lever- like magazine release in the front.

The bedding block then fits inside the stock and is held in place by two steel pillars through which the action screws pass. The stock itself is a durable, resin impregnated laminate hardwood designed to provide years of worry free shooting, and includes rear and forward swivel studs for mounting your favorite sling. In order for the bolt to reliably pass between the narrow lips of an AR-15 magazine, Mossberg ingeniously hinged the lower portion of the bolt face so it would drop down and scoop rounds off the follower.

The body of the bolt is precision machined and then spiral fluted, while the handle and cocking piece are cast steel. A floating bolt head with dual opposing lugs has a deeply counter-bored bolt face that completely encircles the head of a chambered cartridge, greatly increasing the rifle's strength and integrity. The Mossberg MVP's Sako style extractor provides extremely reliable extraction, even under fouled out or filthy chamber conditions. Spent casings are ejected by the familiar spring loaded plunger.

Fitted with what the company calls a "Lightning Bolt Action" (LBA) trigger system, the hinged center safety lever blocks the sear from releasing the striker until the trigger is actually squeezed. The LBA is adjustable for pull weights between 2-to-7 pounds, breaks smoothly and represents a major step forward for the company. A single set screw on the trigger housing is accessible once the action is removed from the stock. An 18.5 inch cold hammer forged, medium fluted bull barrel displays excellent harmonic dampening, which explains the high accuracy potential for this rifle. The muzzle is threaded (1/2-28 TPI) to accept suppressors or other devices. A 1:9" twist rate is optimized for stabilizing heavy grain bullets such as the 69- grain Sierra Match King, while still capable of firing standard 55-grain military surplus ball ammunition.

Even though iron sights are not included, the Mossberg MVP Predator is drilled and tapped to mount optics (not included). In the unlikely event the shooter experiences a blown primer or ruptured case, propellant gas flowing back between the bolt and wall of the receiver will be deflected away by an extension in the bolt shroud. Another deflector located at the base of the bolt handle closes off the receiver, further protecting the shooter. For maximum safety and protection, there is even a gas vent located on the side of the receiver ring.

A matte blued finish can be found on all steel parts, including the barrel. A two- position safety catch is located on the right hand side of the receiver tang which does not actually prevent the bolt from opening, but conveniently allows the chamber to be loaded / unloaded while the safety is "On". A quick glance to the opposite side of the tang will reveal the bolt release lever, which provides for easy disassembly and cleaning. The rifle weighs in at only 7-lbs and is backed by a 2- year manufacturer's warranty. Overall, the MVP Predator is a highly accurate, versatile and reliable varmint rifle platform.
