Mossberg MVP: Bolt Action With An AR Magazine

     In 2011 Mossberg came out with a new line of bolt-action rifles referred to as the MVP series. Basically a scout rifle, but with a twist. The MVP series is built to use an AR-15 magazine.
 I first found out about these rifles at this year's NRA convention here in Houston. The MVP Varmint runs $599.99 at Academy, if you can find one. All four MVPs come in .223/5.56 with .308 versions due out this summer. Pics below.

The strength of that angled sliver on the bottom on the bolt could be a concern, as it is what pushes the round out of the magazine.
     This is rather interesting because it dramatically increases the amount of ammunition immediately available to someone carrying a bolt-action rifle. I'm going to have to get my hands on an MVP.
