I have not shot one ,they offer the same rifle in 7.62 that takes m14 mags have been really looking at them. CZ 527 carbine is a fine little rifle chambered for 5.56 if you don't go with this one.

Thanks from MackR

I had the 5.56 version (until my daughter liked it more than I did) and have the 7.62 version, both of mine were the wood stock and no iron sight versions. They shoot decently and work well even with Pmags. The 5.56 has an aftermarket metal magazine well available.

I shoot lead 160 grain bullets from my 7.62 version it is about 1-1 1/2 MOA with lead bullets out to 200 yards. Pretty decent accuracy for lead.

Thanks from MackR

Can you name a source or provide a link for these aftermarket metal mag wells, please?

Here is the thread on NY Firearms where one of the posters bought the tromix parts and installed them on his MVP http://nyfirearms.com/forums/rifles/...l-upgrade.html

both the magwell and the trigger guard are metal.

Thanks from MackR

I have a Mossberg in 7.62 which I bought specifically because it can use my M1A magazines. Also it has an 18" barrel so my Scout Squad Springfield and bolt gun have ballistic tables almost exactly the same. I am trying to simplify things.

Neat, underrated rifles. I had the 7.62 version and liked it very much. I bought my daughter the Varmint 5.56 version when she was 10YOA. Shortly after, she had no problems running it out to 800yds.

I was also considering buying one but after seeing how the bolt is designed to allow it to feed from AR mags, I wasn't confident enough if it's reliability over time to buy it.

I bought a MVP Patrol yesterday in 5.56 got to dark to shoot it by the time I got home but I think it will work out. Cleaned it up and lubed it up have some AR 10 round Mags on hand. I have a M1a and a Savage .06 111 so I decided on the 5.56 version.

Thanks from ScoutSquad13

I bought a used 5.56 version with 16" barrel for $300; fun little carbine. I use it to plink with steel case ammo. The action is no 30-40 Krag but it's decent. Great gun for new shooters and older kids to graduate to from 22lr. Had a Vortex 2-7x initially but settled on TRS-25 red dot. Plenty accurate for 100-200 yard steel. I call it my CA "assault rifle"

Don't know if I'd pay full price for one, but I'm happy with what I paid.

Thanks from ScoutSquad13
