Mossberg MVP Precision
October 24, 2018
Long-range precision shooting is super popular, and you can spend a fortune getting into it. Or not. The new Mossberg MVP Precision carries a suggested retail price of only $1,400—and since that’s suggested retail you’re likely going to find it for less. It’s inexpensive for sure, but don’t confuse inexpensive with cheap. This rifle punches well above its weight class when it comes to accuracy.
If you’re not up to speed on the MVP, it boasts some ingenious engineering that permits this bolt action to use AR magazines. AR mags are everywhere, and they’re available at a wide range of prices, so this feature alone gives you a lot of options. The gun ships with a 10-round PMag from Magpul.
My sample, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor (it’s also available in .308 Win.), has a 24-inch barrel, and while it’s threaded, it doesn’t come with a muzzle device. I think this was a wise move on Mossberg’s part. Most shooters, even beginners, have a preference for a certain suppressor or muzzle brake, and by not including one, Mossberg is able to offer the rifle for a low price. With the money you save, you can pick up the muzzle device of your choice.
