Yes.
I cannot recall which particular magazine it was, but while grocery shopping yesterday evening I came across a current gun magazine that contained a review of the .308 MVP.

The writer did comment that he wasn't sure that MVP was appropriate, given that it stands for "Mossberg Varmint Predator", but I think that he has a narrow view of just what or who a predator is.

Anyway, the new gun takes M14 magazines and at less than 8 pounds and equipped with a fairly short barrel, would seem to be an excellent candidate for a Scout Rifle. In fact, given that it takes M14 mags, I think the Mr Cooper would be particularly pleased.

I don't know when it will hit the market, but I would be surprised if it takes more than another month or so.


Here is a review.

Thanks from Butzbach and 4Quangs

Hmmm, guess I picked the wrong week

to buy an Ishapore Enfield in 7.62. I'll have to pay more attention to the SHOT show news in the future.

The picture I saw it looks like it takes FAL mags.

It seems like they need to cut some weight and add some features to get it to scout configuration.

The one troubling thing I read on the MVPs is this "lip" on the bolt that drops to pick up a round. Seems like a part failure waiting to happen.

i try not to pay any attention to shot show news..

its all tears and disappointments..

remember the much rumored glock carbine... only to find out they are ALL carbines. that's what the little slot on the backstrap is for!

too bad you need the stamp!

Review says it takes 308 AR mags like DPMS -- are they the same as M14 mags?
