The Mossberg Varmint-Predator rifle features a patent-pending drop-push bolt-action that enables you to use your AR-15 .223/5.56 NATO magazines in a firearm optimized for varmint and predator control. The fluted 24" button-rifled medium bull barrel has a 1:9 twist rate optimized for .223-caliber accuracy and sports a matte-blued finish. Its 11° tapered crown protects the muzzle from incidental damage. The laminated benchrest-style stock features pillar bedding to enhance accuracy and is ideal for shooting off sandbags or packs. Its ergonomic design has a raised flat comb for sighting ease, a palm swell on the forend, and checkering on the pistol-style grip and forearm. The Lighting Bolt Action trigger assembly is machined aircraft-grade aluminum and hard-coat anodized to military specifications, preventing corrosion and reducing wear. The LBA's creep-free design ensures a crisp break with each shot and trigger pull can be adjusted down to 2 lbs. using only a standard screwdriver. The MVP's spiral bolt ensures that sand and other debris spins out and away from the action when cycling the bolt. The Varmint Predator model features a shortened medium bull barrel and a sporter-style laminate stock. This rifle comes with the original factory box. Its stock, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
