We have been asked if we can make barrels for the Mossberg MVP Series because they use AR mags in both the .308 and .223.

So, I bought one of each to see what it would take and i am happy to say we will be offering them as custom order options. They both will come with new barrel nuts but here are some pics and a surprise or 2.

First the 223//556 version - specs:
.875" x 28 threads   1.4" long tenon,  barrel is 1.0" at the shoulder

There are barrel nuts available with flats so we will be selling the barrels with the nut to save having to find one.

We will be able to put any of our .223-based cats in this version.  Mossberg also makes a .224 Valkyrie rifle, but I have not bought it yet to check; but it should be possible to rebarrel that version for our GPC line.

Now for the .308/7.62 version - this one had a surprise for me; here are the tear down pics:

… and now for the surprise. The threads are the same as a Savage, but it does use a shoulder. So, I can profile the MVP like a Savage and use a Savage barrel nut - which are available all over.

and for fun, I took a Yeti barrel just finished for a Savage and put it on the Mossberg with the Savage barrel nut, fits like a champ. Again, the only difference i will have to do other than a Savage is to chamber different. The Mossberg requires 0.005" less than a Savage.

This is GREAT!! My little MVP is probably the most accurate inexpensive rifle I own. I may need to start shopping for some doner actions now!

The Mossberg in its many forms has always been overlooked. I don't know why, they are great rifles- the action and trigger are excellent, the stocks are generally good and the barrels, properly broken in, are shooters. I have had no problems with mine. My Savage Axis is another story....
I would, however, call them my least expensive accurate rifle rather than my most accurate inexpensive rifle- I've certainly paid more for less over the years [smile]
Thanks BD for some much needed insight into these guns. MDWS barrels on these actions will certainly be tack drivers.

been running Savage barrels on my 308 MVP for the last 4yrs [smile]

My 308 out of the box was very accurate with anything I tried in it, I know a couple guys with 223's with no complaints.

I like it!  With the way the rules are changing over this way beginning July 1st, I have been looking at the MVP's.  This will be great for those in other places where bolt action rifles are not as restricted.

Have you yet come up with prices for barrels for the MVP?  You have made me interested in a rifle in either .25-45 Sharps or the new .350 Legend.

They will include barrel nut.  Custom barrels are in the $300 range plus the barrel nut (~ $30) so they will be around $330 probably. We will only be doing our calibers, or calibers I have reamers for already.  I don't have a 25-45 but we have the .257 Ocelot, and we have the 357AR Max, so we won't be doing the Legend either.

I am currently looking to rebarrel
My 7.62 mossberg mvp LC .With a new barrel
I only have about 100 rnds down the pipe. But with the current 7.62 chamber and long lead
Its 1-1.5 moa with federal gold doesn't leave a smile on my face . When you get a chance could you PM me
To talk about barrel and chambering availability
I'd like to stick with. 308 and a match chamber
