Whether hunting small game, serious marksmanship practice or just plinking around, the 802 Plinkster Bolt-Actions fit the bill. The .22 LR caliber 802 Plinksters are made to the high standards of quality of Mossberg International with the balance, feel, and accuracy of rifles costing much more. The Plinkster's barrel is free-floated and features a 1 in 16" RH twist for superior accuracy. Its aluminum alloy receiver and trigger guard allow for improved balance and handling. The receiver is grooved to accept 3/8" scope mounts for quick and easy optics installation and the cross-bolt safety and magazine release button is conveniently located. The Varmint model has a heavy barrel.
