  1. Dang it...wrong URL, here's the correct one: https://www.mossberg.com/product/mvp-scout-rifle-27778/
  2. 16.25", it has an adjustable trigger too. Full specs are at https://www.nomadasaurus.com/7-days-pamir-highway-tajikistan-guide/.
  3. Thanks for the replies gents. These rifles are inexpensive (I paid a little over $500 out the door) but do have decent reviews and the quality seems solid. I also like the fact that it's American.
  4. Thanks and I will provide a range report when I can.
  5. Just got it and I can't wait to get it to the range when it warms up a bit. It came with one Magpul 10 cap mag and a sling w/hardware that I'm going to install after I post this. I have not settled on optics yet. I kind of like it with just the irons it comes with but we'll see. I have a Primary Arms 1-6x w/ACSS reticle on one of my AR-10s and PA now has a 1-8x version of that optic that might be cool on this rifle. https://www.mossberg.com/category/series/mvp-series/mvp-scout/
  6. "The department said Mark Jones was walking when the Hi Point 9 mm handgun he was carrying in his waistband without a holster began to slip. Jones reached down to adjust the gun and it discharged. The bullet entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum." https://wpta21.com/news/top-stories/2019/02/28/marion-police-respond-after-man-accidently-shoots-self-in-genitals/?fbclid=IwAR2ILgL1rbKG3DhgwvyAmhH03O0YzYNr77Yhm5l-Ls85vKiJiNnIGJ6G-9M&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook_ABC21_WPTA

  8. Very cool...will take me a bit longer to cycle rounds in a bolt gun than w/a semi-auto too which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
  9. Very cool rifle, nice hybrid of old and new(er) school I think. You've convinced me I may need more than one MVP Scout and/or one of the other .308 MVPs (the LR looks pretty cool). It also helps that though they are inexpensive as is/at market price we have a new gun shop in town whose owner is being very competitive and making great deals. Stopped in yesterday after work to get a price quote only and...my initial post tells the rest of the story.
  10. Glad to hear you vouch for it, now I just have to wait for the gun shop to call.
  11. Mossberg MVP Scout, it's a .308 Win bolt rifle that's external mag fed and compatible with my AR10s' SR25/M110/AR10 mags (and of less interest to me, M1A mags). I'm going for the iron-sights only model instead of the combo with the Vortex Scout scope as I'm not sure I would like the forward-mounted optic that is traditionally used on this type of rifle. Can add a scope, including a Scout or more traditional/non-Scout type option later if I like. I am partial to open sights though and don't have any .308s with irons only so it may just remain stock. https://www.mossberg.com/category/series/mvp-series/mvp-scout/ https://www.mossberg.com/product/mvp-scout-rifle-27778/
  12. Thanks for the post and please share more updates if you can. I'm on Cabela's/Bass Pro's mailing list and have been kind of curious about the new(er) Cabela's brand optics they've been advertising.
  13. I've been buying a few blades recently and finally got a Glock 81. This particular model has a saw-edged spine instead of a smooth one. Though these are inexpensive (I paid about $30) they have a ton of good reviews online and mine seems to be really solid. The blade came sharp and coated with plenty of lubricant. The sheath is good quality too and the knife snaps securely into it. The blade and overall length of the knife is a little longer than what I think is needed for field dressing Whitetails though. So, I probably won't carry it as my go-to hunting knife but will keep it in my rifle bag as a backup if I lose my (much smaller) primary hunting blade. I made it a little more emergency/zombie apocalypse-ready by adding some ball chain for optional neck carry and also getting a magnesium fire starter for it.
