North Haven, CT –-( Mossberg listened when our customers said that our AR-compatible MVP Series was the ideal platform for a scout rifle.

For 2015, Mossberg is pleased to announce the MVP Scout rifle chambered in 7.62mm NATO (308 Win).

The new MVP Scout features an extended top rail and two side-mounted short rails for ease of adding optics and accessories; an optional Scoped Combo version of the MVP Scout is also offered. These highly-innovative carbine rifles feature Mossberg’s patented Dual Push bolt and patented Dual Latch designs that accept and reliably-feed from both M1A/M14 and AR10-style magazines, a first for bolt-actions!

The general-purpose Scout rifle was defined by the legendary Col. Jeff Cooper, and Mossberg has combined those key features in their MVP Scout 7.62mm NATO (308 Win) bolt-action rifle. This highly-versatile, short-action rifle has an 11-inch receiver/barrel-mounted Picatinny rail which provides a solid base for standard or long-eye relief optics. When used properly, with both eyes open, a low-power and forward-mounted scope provides the user with an unobstructed field-of-view as with open sights. The Picatinny rail and forward-mounted optic provide greater clearance in the ejection port area for quicker reloads. For sight system versatility, an integrated, rail-mounted, Ghost Ring rear sight is paired with a barrel-mounted, fiber optic front sight. Two handy Picatinny side rails, located near the front of the forend, provide for easy-attachment of tactical lights, laser or accessories.

Chambered in 7.62mm NATO (308 Win), the MVP Scout features a compact 16 ¼-inch medium bull, carbon steel button-rifled, threaded barrel with an A2-style suppressor, with a 1:10 twist rate to optimize bullet performance. A protective thread cap is provided. Completing the Scout package is an adjustable, rifle sling.

Convenient, scoped combo packages are also available, featuring a UTG AccuShot 1-4x28mm scope with extended eye relief (6 to 9 inches). The AccuShot optic also has the patented EZ-TAP Illumination Enhancing System with red/green Dual-Color Mode and Multi-Color Mode (36 colors) to accommodate all weather and light conditions. Low-profile, lever-lock UTG rings and flip-open lens caps are included.

Adding to the virtues of this ruggedly-built, all-purpose platform is Mossberg’s patented Lightning Bolt Action (LBA) Trigger System that delivers a crisp, creep-free trigger pull and is user-adjustable from 3 to 7 pounds; a classic stock design with stippling on the pistol grip and forend, finished in a matte black, coarse texture; exposed metalwork features a matte blue finish; front and rear sling swivel studs; spiral-fluted bolt; oversized bolt knob; and 10-round capacity magazine. And because of its patented designs, the MVP Scout can be used with both M1A/M14 and AR10-style aftermarket magazines.

Combining the classic features of a Scout rifle, as described by Col. Jeff Cooper, with the breakthrough design of Mossberg’s MVP Series bolt-action rifles elevates the definition of Scout rifle to a new level.

I too was told by one Gun Store here in Simi Valley, CA, that the MVP Scout is too new and not available. I contacted Martin B. Retting in Culver City, CA, and they had one ( Or more ) I picked mine up last Tuesday, 03-15-16 and took it to the range on Friday. I had a problem with the scope. I have to work on that. I did really well with just the iron sights. I put about 300 + rounds through it and was impressed with the MVP. The MVP Scout is a good looking and solid… Read more »


What is the effective range for this gun. Can I hunt with it


308 win is 7.62×51


Same issue here! I’d like to have a Scout except no one has one and says they are not available. One shop says he’s had two on order since January. Any suggestions are welcome.


All very well but Ruger still trumps it for me because they make a LEFT HANDED version. Ruger and Savage seem to be the only gun companies who make left handed bolt action rifles as a standard..So untill Mossberg and the rest of the tactical market cop on to this fact Ruger still gets my money.

@CGGator – they are available now through different vendors. I just purchased one for $550, along with a variety of mags to try out with it (CMI, PMag, ProMag).


BensionX…can you give us the name(s)? much appreciated.


Any word on when these will be available through retailers? Even the links to buy from Gallery of Guns and NFDNetwork on the Mossberg website don’t have any availability, and nobody at Cabela’s or Bass Pro near me has heard anything about this gun. Anybody here been able to find one?


Guys, that’s a nice looking shooten iron. That would make a darn nice survival rifle. If you buy one PLEASE get extra mags.

Poibty End Out

7.62 x ?????


7.62 NATO or .308 Win. It will shoot both. They also have it coming in .223/5.56 later on from what I heard.

We will see this version in the hands of the U.S. Marines.


Why not simply put the rail system (there are many available) on the M14, which is the very best rifle ever produced for the US Military. Carried that weapon for many years. Why would the Marines degress back to a bolt action when the M14 is available (the goobermnt giving those things to countries all over the world…..and Amerika is stuck with the stinkin worthless M16.

Duke Snider

But I could knock you down at 750 meters open sights with that worthless M16….lol… it isn’t the weapon … it’s the person behind the weapon that makes it good or bad…



COL Spike

Sorry dude the max effective range is 460-480 meters on the M16/M4. As a retired combat Vet (not combat zone vet or FOBBIT) I had a great deal of faith in my M4. Great weapon system. However, we did have M14s in Afghanistan (07-08) that we were issued to engage at the greater range. M14 has the 750 meter range that greatly out classes the M4. My question is when is my beloved Army going to get rid of that piece of junk Berretta M9? I saw one of those MVPs at my local gun shop and thought I would… Read more »
