Anyone seen these yet? They look interesting in a kinda scout riflish way and take AR mags. These are chambered for 5.56 but supposedly there is a 300 blackout and .308 version in the works.

I like the concept very much. I've heard some complaints on the varmint version about feeding reliably, but read other reviews saying it was fine. I love my 7615 pump and would like to add one of these to my 5.56 battery. I'd really like to see a 243 win version built that would take the AR-10 magazines in the predator version. Accuracy tests have at or below 1 MOA on the 5.56 predator and varmint versions on all reviews I've seen, and I'd think the short stiff barrel on the patrol would do as well.

One of these in .308 might give the Ruger Gunsite Scout a run for it's money, especially if it takes AR10 mags and has a similar price tag.

THIS.

I would be interested in a .308 that took said mags.

I just picked one up last week. The short barrel predator, I have not been able to get out and try it but am impressed so far. It was a little stiff at first but after a good cleaning and some cycling with snap caps it seems to have smoothed out a little bit. Can't wait to put some rounds through it.
I also added a Bushnell Trophy red dot on it and it still has nice balance.Just a quick note, it does not come with Iron Sights, wish it did.

I own one of the original MVPs, mounted with a 2-10x45 scope, and use it extensively when coyote hunting back home. I've e-mailed Mossberg marketing department requesting one in 6.8 SPCII or .308 for the deer woods, and got a response back that they're investigating doing just that in the not too distant future, and that my e-mail would get passed along to their engineers.

Can't wait to see how this goes in the next little bit!

Just when I thought I had everything I ever "needed." I'm interested in the patrol with iron sights; hopefully by the time they come out in .308, I'll have some money to buy.

If it is a .308 it will be a true Scout Rifle as defined by Col. Jeff Cooper. I was looking at the Ruger version myself.

Serious question.... why is there a big interest in this 5.56 when a Mini-14 is a semi-auto and so well established? If it were a .308 then I understand.

For starters:

1.) Cost (MSRP is about $300 less than a Mini for the 5.56 version)
2.) People are interested in the scout rifle concept
3.) Accuracy
4.) They accept AR mags
5.) These are slated to be available in other calibers (i.e. 300 blackout & 308), not just 5.56

Any news on this one as far as availability? I 'm periodically checking Mossberg's site and it is not there. A couple of months ago I heard that September was the tentative time of release but there are some already for sale out there. None at any of my local stores though.. So have they hit the shelves yet?

Read a pseudo-review on the 308 version, prototype sent to the guy from Mossberg to test. He said it takes AR10 magazines AND M14 magazines.. The M14 magazine thing immediately piqued my interest. Supposedly just like the 5.56 versions more or less.

There is a a 5.56 on the shelf at our shop I eyeball everytime I walk by it. It is a nice handy size and would make for a fun gun. I know there are several people that have already swapped .300 Blackout barrels into them. I keep holding out for a .308 version.

It will come out sooner or later. It is in the works atleast. And since I am already invested in the M1A, the m14 magazine capatability is quite appealing. Nothing quite as efficient as standardization of magazines.
