- Great Package, Marginal Quality
I've had a criteria for a Certain gun for quite some time...
20" or shorter bull barrel
5.56 NATO and .223
AR standard magazines
And finally Mossberg released this gun. And while it does not come with Iron sights (the MVP patrol does, but I wasn't fond of the 16" barrel idea) This packages everything I've been wanting in one gun, without a custom gun price tag.
First off, The gun shoots excellent. The trigger is GREAT. Very crisp with little to no sense of Creep. A little on the heavy side, but is easily adjustable.
The magazines Do wobble a lot, but its does not hamper function. A few rounds of electrical tape on the mouth of the mags tighten them up.
The overall action of the gun is just as should be. Flawless. Not the smoothest, or tightest tolerance gun around, (then again, no guns made these days are really made that well anymore. Gone are the days of precision machined billits. )
Anyway you look at it, the Length of Pull is too damn short. The stock could easily use at least a 1/2" or more of length. An insert plate easily fixes this.
Fit and Finish of the stock. The composite stock is somewhat heavy. Perported to be 1.5 lbs heavier than the Wooden laminate stock. I also have a large paint chip/crack that flaked off already.
The "blueing" is not that at all but only a black oxide finish. And its about the most fragile coating ever. If you plan to keep this gun long term, go ahead and get it Ceracoated. This baby just reeks of rust problems.
Overall I am incredibly pleased, It is a great shooter, but does have some minor drawbacks. However for $500, I feel like these are more than acceptable consequences to be had.
(Also in hindsight, The MVP Varmiter looks be a much more ergonomic stock... Just my opinion)
