The convenience of using AR-pattern magazines in a bolt-action rifle make the MVP rifle lineup a great choice for target shooting, hunting, home defense and plinking. Now O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. is expanding their MVP Patrol bolt-action rifle series with a new rifle chambered in .300 AAC Blackout (.300 BLK). This new rifle joins the 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. and 7.62 NATO/.308 Win. models in line of multi-purpose MVP rifles.

The MVP Patrol .300 BLK is designed to be a versatile, all-purpose platform and is a great choice at the range or in the field. The .300 BLK delivers greater penetration and better terminal performance than the 5.56 mm NATO/.223 Rem. cartridge. The superior ballistics make this intermediate rifle cartridge effective for mid to large-sized game such as deer, hog and black bear.

The MVP Patrol rifles have a patented design that can accept and reliably-feed from both AR-15-style magazines in the .300 BLK and 5.56 mm models, and M1A/M14 and AR-10-style magazines in the 7.62 mm model. The .300 BLK model has a 16.25-inch medium bull, button-rifled and threaded barrel with A2-style muzzle brake and a protective thread cap. The stock is pillar-bedded, and there is an over-sized bolt handle for quick cycling of the action.

Mossberg’s LBA Trigger System is user-adjustable from 3 to 7 pounds and there is a factory-mounted Picatinny rail for mounting your choice of optic to the rifle. In addition to this, there is front fiber optic and rear barrel-mounted, adjustable rifle sight. The MVP Patrol rifle also has a textured, black synthetic stock with stippling on the pistol grip, a matte blue finish on exposed metalwork, a fluted bolt and  sling swivel studs. The rifle ships with one 10-round capacity magazine.

Are Percussion Revolvers and Single-Shot Muzzleloaders Obsolete?

It’s known that firearms can serve for a long time after they’re no longer cutting edge. Flintlocks held on long into the percussion era. During the American Civil War, plenty of cavalry units, especially local militias, turned up with single-shot pistols despite Colt’s revolvers having been on the market for a while by then.
