Mossberg introduced five new MVP Patrol Rifles. The bolt-action rifles include a patent-pending drop-push bolt design that accepts and feeds from standard AR-style magazines. All models include 16.5-inch medium bull barrels with an 11-degree tapered crown and are also available threaded with an A2-style flash suppressor/thread cap. The rifles feature Mossberg’s patented LBA Adjustable Trigger, a distinctive spiral fluted bolt, receiver-mounted Picatinny rail and a 10-round magazine.

Two scoped combos include a 3-9×32 mm riflescope with an illuminated reticle and come with a neoprene comb-raising kit with foam inserts.
Here are the five models available now:

    I like it. I would rather have a 20 inch with flash suppressor. Its a great idea for states with highly restrictive gun laws. Make a good scout rifle. Would be great for police cars in 16 inch barrels. I understand an 18.5 version flex rifle will be available. That would also make a great patrol rifle. I own a mvp with 24 inch barrel. I plan to also get one with a shorter barrel. Keep making more versions.

      Also want a stripper clip charging slot! Also repeatable detatchable rings and a range compensating compact optic that I can run with a ballistics program like Strelok plus. Barrel thread on the 7.62 I wish would stay 1/2×28 for my rather universal American Manufacturing Triple X suppressor but I geuss I could have it recut.Agreed on the 20′ barrel. Seems to me with standard IMR4895 loads that it is tough to get a full burn even in 20′. Mine in 7.62 Nato will have a charging slot though one way or another. With the optic detatched and cased, and a bandolier of M118 ball it ought to be the perfect truck and utillity carbine. Which is something I have daily use for. :-[)] Dang hope the 7.62s twist will support a 173 gr boattail or a 175 gr Sierra HPBTMK!
