    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, then it probably really needs to be said. .

    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.
