I still have to see how this thing groups with some better ammunition. I bought the Mossberg MVP patrol rifle with the desire to have a truck-gun. I wanted an inexpensive, lightweight bolt action carbine, chambered in 5.56mm and took AR-15 magazines.

One thing led to another and I kept adding parts. What started out as a $500 rifle has turned into something else.

Mossberg MVP.................................................................................$500
Vortex Optics Viper PST Gen II Rifle Scope........................$900
Vortex Bubble Level........................................................................$35
Vortex Optics Switchview Throw Lever..................................$60
Burris 30 mm Signature Rings.................................................$100
Magpul Bipod..................................................................................$125
Hawk Hill Spiked Bipod Feet......................................................$60
Aramageddon Gear Carbine Sling............................................$45
MDT Chassis with all the bells & whistles......................$1200
OSS Suppressor w/Tax Stamp...............................................$1300
Cole-Tac Suppressor Wrap.........................................................$120
Approximate shipping and taxes...........................................$250

Total cost for the Franken-Mossberg Fun Package....$4695

Fun factor ..............................................................................Priceless!

I don't know what came over me.

Well after I put some scope caps on the good old .308 today I decided to take out front of the house and take a few pics of it after the abysmal inside photo I took. Still one of my favorite rifles I own.View attachment 7288076View attachment 7288077View attachment 7288078View attachment 7288087
Lovely rifle and awesome covers! And scenery is not bad either :)

I almost ordered set of tenebraex to my scope, but it seems that my .338lm project is taking more than I thought so I need to be a bit carefully about my investments :) I have vortex flip covers and they will do fine for now.

Thanks the rifle is one of my favorites, despite having several more expensive rifles. As for the scenery it is across the street from our house where our boat and garage are, I have been working night the last 3 years so I have forgot how beutiful it is when it is light out.

I have not had the Vortex covers, but I have these on one of my PMIIs and I run the BC caps on the others because that is what they came with. And they all seem to work really well.

Unfortunately haven't had the chance to shoot it since it was still in factory condition due to being in a lockdown area that took effect the day before I was going to zero it at the range.

Loving the "old" Remington in .308. I run one too and find that its feature set and accuracy fill my needs just fine. Like you, I am sticking with a little more traditional stock rather than go the chassis route.View attachment 7289573
You might dig this one if you like traditional?
6 digit M40 goodness
One of my favorite builds and shooters.

Thats not too shabby of a cerakote job for your first time. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think you did amazing!

I am truly humbled by how good those gentlemen had to be at the time to make a shot count. Fun playing “ Carlos “ with the long distance silhouettes.

Very nice.
What are the specs/details on the very bottom one?
Good evening,

The bottom rifle is a trued and lapped Rem. receiver with a 22” SS 1-10 .30 cal straight contour Lilja barrel that I had on the shelf. It is a truck axle and weighs a ton. It shoots too well to pull the barrel.
It was kind of a experiment with some spare parts. I use it for local 200 yard egg shooting comps. It is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Stock is a B&C tactical with a channel carved in it for the huge barrel and a Atlas bottom metal.

Kind Regards,

- Jon
