7.62mm NATO (308 Win) Bolt-Action Rifle with AR-Style Magazine Compatibility
North Haven, CT -(AmmoLand.com)- Mossberg brought its general-purpose MVP Scout 7.62mm NATO (308 Win) bolt-action rifle to the market in 2015, elevating the definition of a Scout rifle to a new level with its groundbreaking bolt-action design.
The MVP Scout rifle features Mossberg’s patented Dual Push bolt and patented Dual Latch designs that accept and reliably-feed from both M1A/M14 and AR10-style magazines. Now Mossberg is pleased to add the MVP Scout Vortex-Scoped Combo to the line-up, featuring a Vortex Crossfire II Scout 2-7x32mm variable riflescope; a new offering from Vortex Optics designed specifically for the Scout platform.
A standard feature of the versatile Scout rifle design is a forward-mounted optic, and Vortex delivers with its Crossfire II Scout 2-7x32mm scope. This new scope is engineered with extended eye relief for quick target acquisition in the forward-mounted position; features Vortex’s V-Plex reticle; has fully multi-coated lenses; and comes complete with resettable MOA turrets. Vortex Viper rings are provided for ease of mounting the optic on the MVP Scout’s extended top rail.
Key features of a Scout rifle, as defined by the legendary Col. Jeff Cooper, are standard on the Mossberg MVP Scout rifle including an 11-inch receiver/barrel-mounted Picatinny rail and two side-mounted short Picatinny rails for the addition of optics and accessories; an integrated rail-mounted Ghost Ring rear sight is paired with a barrel-mounted fiber optic front sight for added versatility; and a compact 16 ¼-inch medium bull barrel that is threaded and comes equipped with an A2-style suppressor (a protective thread cap is provided). The 1:10 twist rate optimizes bullet performance in this 7.62mm NATO (308 Win) carbine and completing the Scout package is an adjustable rifle sling.
Enhancing the performance 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. Other standard features include a classic stock with stippling on the pistol grip and forend, finished with a matte black, coarse texture; matte blue finish on exposed metalwork; 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.
A premium bolt-action rifle package requires a premium riflescope, so Mossberg is pleased to offer the new MVP Scout Vortex-Scoped Combo with the Vortex Crossfire II Scout 2-7x32mm variable riflescope.
