Saw a video of them presenting this at Shot Show. This looks like an awesome package, plus it comes with a Vortex Crossfire! Might be the new hot package deal for first time rifle buyers.

That's pretty cool if you like Mossberg at all.

Lipstick on a pig, I wouldn't have a Mossberg rifle, Vortex or not. Their .22 A/R's have a terrible reputation.

The stainless savage 116 hunter package with a nikon pro staff 3-9 is the same price and an excellent rifle with decent hunting optics.

Yup and a friend of mine fell for it with the 4 x 4 in .223

It does shoot sub MOA though.

Cue the guy with a Mossberg that's never had any problems.

They make great shotguns. I have a plinkster 702 that's a single shot instead of a semi auto. I would never spend that on a mossberg rifle.

I have actually never fired a Mossberg bolt action but the Vortex scope enticed me! Being a new hunter if I saw this at Cabelas I would probably pick it over other rifles. I did buy the Mossberg 500 with the "lightning" trigger, didn't like it though so I sold it off. I'm a sucker for a good gimmick!

I agree the Savage is hard to beat!

I picked up a MVP in a pinch a couple months ago. Got the call from my dealer that my suppressor was approved and ready for pick up. It was the only .308 threaded barrel rifle I could find local that day. The machine work on the bolt looked like a 4 year old did it. The bolt cycled as if it had a pound of sand in it. Feed ramp had burrs that wouldn't allow proper feeding and so on. After an hour or so of working on it I took it out for a trial. The gun will shoot sub MOA with factory ammo. For what it cost and how it shoots I'm pretty happy with it but they have some serious QC issues to address.

Never been a fan of Mossberg shotguns so doubt I'd own a rifle.
The shotguns shoot alright. I call them mud guns because there is so much play in the action that you could get mud all over in them and they would still have room for the action to cycle. Might be good for duck hunting in a swamp or something. I don't duck hunt.

I bought an MVP Patrol rifle in .223 last year for my son to use for Deer.
I like that it uses standard AR magazines. It's short and handy with a decent trigger. Bolt is rough but doesn't bind.
It's a decent little rifle for the money and shoots well.

I've always thought mossberg shotguns were crap and will never own one. However a buddy of mine picked up a .243 for his son and I worked up a load for it. I was very surprised at the accuracy and factory trigger was good. If you want a cheap rifle I'd recomend one.
