I have a thunder ranch mvp in 5.56 . It has an 18 inch flutted bull barrel a threaded muzzle
super accurate with 53 grain v-max and 62 grain barnes tsx .



I also have the mvp-lr 308 which compliments my M!A loaded nicely .

Thanks from MackR and M14wannabe

Looking at the Bushnell TRS-25 seems like a decent unit with the low mount I think it will work fine along with the quick release mount.

Thank you

After running a few rounds through it Saturday not real impressed with feeding it works ok with factory mag but not great or not at all with aftermarket mags, looks like a Tromix mag well update is my future.

Thanks from MackR

Installed the Tromix Magwell update took maybe 20 minutes...Wow what a difference tightens up mags really well and simple to install. Would recommend to anyone who owns 5.56 MVP.

Thanks from MackR

After receiving the TROMIX mag well and trigger guard in the mail today, I spent about a hour fitting both parts and installing them on my new MVP Patrol Carbine. Can't say enough good about TROMIX; great customer service, quality product, and super fast shipping.

Not sure why I didn't order the trigger guard when I got the mag well. Got a TRS-25 mounted on it last night looks good small, low hope to zero it this weekend.

I've ordered a Bushnell AR 1-4X24 optic for my MSP Patrol Carbine and it should arrive next Monday. Also, removed the the fiber optic front sight and the Williams rear; they just get in the way and really won't be needed for my uses. That fiber optic sight mounted directly behind the A2 flash suppressor just look weird to me, so off it came. Carbine now looks more like a serious weapon instead of a carnival toy. I'll try to remember to post a photo of it once all the mods are completed.
