Not sure if you read Craig Boddington's G&A review in May.  If not, you can find it here:

It's a cool looking piece.   That would make an awesome truck gun for varmints.  I'm not sure I like the 1:9 barrel, a 1:7 would be better.

I have a MVP Predator.  The 1:7 would be better for heavier projectiles, but my 1:9 shoots SMK 69 & 77 really well.  It does fine with lighter bullets too.  The mags fit a little loose, but mine has not failed to feed with the factory mag or any of my AR mags.  It's a pretty nice little rifle for the price.

If you choose to use a scope that is very long you may have clearance issues with the rear sight on the Patrol version.

Interesting concept, I too would have concerns with pushing heavies in a 1:9. On the quote above that the barrel stabilized a particular 77 gr well, keep in mind that one 77 can be quite different from another, and stabilizing a SMK ain't the same as stabilizing an Amax or a Nosler or a Barnes or a Speer or even a Sierra gameking.

I like that it takes GI mags, length does make it an attractive package, I'd be more interested in the rifle without the Leapers scope.

I have no experience with anything mossberg but their pump shotguns, but those were always a good valuable and quite reliable.

Let us know what you do.

Semper Fi!

I did assume that you were looking @ this rifle in the .223/5.56 variant, they also make it in .308

You would be hard pressed to find a bolt gun in .223 (in this price range) with less then a 1:9 twist. but most everything else has at least a 20" barrel.

What are you wanting to use this for?
