    Mossberg MVP Thunder Ranch

    Call me crazy, But I would really like to get one of these.

    The only thing I wish these .223 bolt guns had was 1:8" twist instead of 1:9"

    And its a bit expensive at $900

    But a short, handy, suppressor ready, AR mag fed, bolt gun appeals to me.
    People have been hoping Ruger would make a GSR in .223 for a while.

    It might be worth getting the cheapest model (around $600 I think) and re-barreling it with a 1:8" twist barrel maybe of better quality.
    I think the mossberg barrels are easy to swap, just like the savage barrels.

    1/8 would have been awesome along with shaving a pound off of it. The thing that holds me back is the bolt. It has to many moving parts. I guess it was the only way to make it work with AR mags but it is a major weak point.
    I like franks & beans

    If a large number of people are willing to kill you for saying something, than it probably really needs to be said. Charlie Hebdo wasn't the first and it won't be the last, but freedom of expression is worth the risk and the sacrifice.

    The MVP Patrol caught my eye, but I haven't had an opportunity to get my hands on one yet. I like the iron sight option and is listed at 7 pounds. I agree with you on the twist rate.

    I believe they are making one in 300blk. I'd post a link but I'm on my phone and it's too big of a pain. I have a dealer that's going to get me a MVP predator in .308 to try out. They won't be out til later this summer though.

    I was thinking about the basic patrol but the 1-9 is a killer.
    We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts.

    There's a Ruger Thunder Ranch Scout bolt gun also no? Other than the basic pump shot gun, I have no experience with Mossberg guns.

    What's the quality/fit/finish of their bolt guns like for the $$$?

    Really cool concept. Unfortunately it falls in the "neat" category for me. I see little to nothing it could do that an AR couldn't, and the AR is MUCH more versatile.

    I agree however for example here in PA we cant hunt with a semi-auto.
    So a handy bolt gun like this has merit.
