Going the Distance: Mossberg MVP Precision in .224 Valkyrie/6.5 CM — SHOT Show 2018

When we think of the name Mossberg, most of us instantly envision a shotgun. They have been the leader in American shotguns for decades and recently have been crushing it out of the park with new products like the 590 magazine-fed and the Shockwave. But they are also a powerhouse in rifles. And this year they are stepping into the precision game, with the Mossberg MVP Precision.


  • MVP bolt designs accept and feed from standard AR-style magazines –– a first for bolt-actions (Patented Drop Push and Dual Push designs). Each MVP Precision rifle comes with a Magpul 10-Round PMAG.
  • 24”or 20” threaded Medium Bull barrels (with included thread cap) are standard, ready for mounting suppressors or muzzle brakes. Barrels are free-floated in a slim-profile forearm featuring M-LOK® modular mounting system for use with a variety of compatible accessories.
  • FEATURES: LUTH-AR MBA-3 stock (adjustable for LOP, Cast, and Comb height) with takedown capability; patented LBA® Adjustable Trigger (3-7 lbs.); an optics-ready 20 MOA top Picatinny rail; Scalloped tactical bolt handle; Magpul MOE+ grip; and Anodized and Matte Blue metal finishes.
  • MSRP: $1,407

This is a full-bore chassis bolt action rifle, clearly built to contend with the Ruger Precision and the Tikka T3 TAC A1. It feeds from standard AR mags, and also uses AR compatible stocks. Out of the box, it features the Luth-AR MBA 3, an excellent choice to keep the weight down and performance up. The top rail features a 20 MOA bias, and the forend is M-LOK compatible. The fore end is nice and slim, and it feels like a winner. The trigger is adjustable, from 3 to 7 pounds, for any users tastes.

Impressions & MSRP

The barrel is of course threaded, mandatory in this category. Chamberings include 6.5 Creedmore and 308, but will also soon be available in 224 Valkyrie. This is going to be one to watch this year, and at $1400, I bet it turns out a winner.

    I was told that the Mossberg precision rifles chambered in 224 Valkyrie wouldn’t be out until end of 2018 or possibly the first of 2019. Is what I was told correct?

    All I need is another oddball round that you have to special order to get ! If they don’t have ammo at WalMart I don’t need it ! How is that 221 fireball or that 222 or that 357 maximum ?

      You can’t buy an AR15 at Walmart, so what’s the point? Walmart doesn’t sell AR15s because they can‘t make money on them, and who buys an AR15 at Walmart?

    Did they really have to put that big ass “M” on the receiver? It’s so tacky.

      I bought several AR-15s at Walmart…Sig, M&P and Bushmaster…this was a few years back. I have a feeling Federal will be available at Walmart for the 224 Valkyrie. The performance of the 224V is very impressive. I hope Savage does the same with the Stealth series. I have one in 6.5 Creedmoor…my wife shoots sub MOA groups with it at 200yds.
