New Mossberg MVP Bolt-Action Rifles

New Mossberg MVP Bolt-Action Rifles
Designed with Varmint/Predator Hunters and Long-Range Shooters in Mind.

North Haven, CT – O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. announces a new line of dedicated varmint and predator bolt-action rifles, the MVP (Mossberg Varmint Predator) Series, based on the overwhelming success of the Mossberg 4x4 centerfire rifle. The engineers at Mossberg combined that classic bolt-action platform with the features most highly-desired by dedicated varmint and predator hunters and long-range competitive shooters in this innovative and well-designed series. Notably-setting this family of rifles apart from the competition is its unique, patent-pending bolt design that allows MVP Series rifles to accept and reliably feed from AR-15 style magazines; a breakthrough innovation in bolt-action platforms!

The first rifle in this ground-breaking series, the MVP Series Varmint chambered in 5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem), was recently unveiled at the 2011 NRA Convention in Pittsburgh, PA. Two initial offerings will be available this summer including a standard rifle package with 10-round magazine and factory-installed, Weaver-style bases for customization with optics of the shooter's choice. The second is a convenient combo package that includes the rifle, pre-mounted and bore-sighted 4-16x50mm variable riflescope, bipod and 10-round magazine.

The MVP Series Varmint Rifle, chambered in .5.56mm NATO (.223 Rem), has a 1:9-inch twist rate to optimize bullet performance and accuracy from the 24-inch button-rifled, medium bull barrel that also features a varmint-style crown to protect the muzzle. Stylish fluting reduces weight and increases heat dissipation. The helically-fluted bolt further reduces the rifle's overall weight and adds to its distinctive look. The innovative, patent-pending bolt design allows the rifle to accept AR-15 style aftermarket magazines and the 10-round magazine included from the factory. All metalwork features a matte blue finish.

The grey laminate, benchrest-style stock has an ergonomically-designed pistol grip with palm swell and is pillar bedded for the utmost in shot placement repeatability. Stippling on the fore-end and pistol grip provide for positive hand placement in any weather condition while the deeply-relieved area behind the pistol grip increases wrist and forearm comfort during long shooting strings. The comb is parallel to the bore centerline to eliminate parallax errors. The wide, flat-bottom fore-end is perfect for sandbag rests or bipod use.


Performance and accuracy are key to long-range shooting and the MVP Series Varmint rifle, as with all 4x4 bolt-actions, comes standard with Mossberg's Lightning Bolt-Action (LBA) Adjustable Trigger System. Built with durability and reliability in mind, the LBA trigger assembly is machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and hard-coat anodized to military spec, preventing corrosion and minimizing wear. The trigger blade blocks the sear from releasing the striker unless the blade is fully depressed, even at the lightest adjustment setting. And with a simple twist of a standard screwdriver, the LBA trigger is adjustable from 2 to 7 lbs, providing the shooter with the flexibility of adjusting the trigger pull without taking the rifle to a gunsmith. With its distinctive, skeletonized "lightning bolt" trigger blade, the LBA Trigger System offers a truly crisp, creep-free trigger, optimizing accuracy and shot-to-shot consistency.


Other standard features on this MVP Series rifle include sling swivel studs and factory-installed Weaver-style scope bases. Built for performance and featured-packed, this varminter weighs in at mere 7 ¼ lbs and can deliver MOA accuracy right from the box!
