Default Mossberg MSR???

I received a flyer from BassPro Shop today and I browsed through it real quick before tossing it in the trash bin, when I saw this AR platform Mossberg MSR .22 LR with brush camo.


Pretty little thing but it seems that it is very new. I haven't even seen one video on youtube. It would be a nice Christmas present from me, to me but it sucks that it only comes with a 10 round magazine. Then while browsing some info on the web, I saw this M&P 10/22.

Any of you guys out there have in feedback on this Mossberg MSR?

None on the MSR, but those M&P15-22's are really nice. After you break them in, they get very reliable and if you already have an AR, its even better. They are a hell of a great "trainer" rifle, and they even have a Magpul MOE version for like $80 than the original. That one comes with the MOE stock, grip, and MBUS sights.

Its a little more upfront, but it seems like it would be a better option.

Haven't fired one but did pick one up a few weeks ago. Very very light. I'm used to the weight of an M16, so it was rather unexpected. IIRC, Mossberg has been making AR15 uppers for a while now.

Mossberg must be making these to compete with the MP-15/22 and other 'tactical 22s'. From looking closely at their website, it looks like the Mossberg 22 has a side action, the charging handle doesn't function the bolt. Surely not a cheap training rifle, more pure plinkster.

Hell, from the pictures, it might be a uber technical stock and frame surrounding their Plinkster rifle's action.

There was one at the SouthPoint show.

Typical Mossberg "solid" feel.

Thanks for the reply gents. I've read a few feedbacks about almost all components of the MSR are made out of plastic? I don't care really if it's plastic or what its made of as long as it doesn't break easy. The M&P looks expensive, but you'll probably get what you paid for. I'm more and more leaning towards getting the MSR, but the current price may come down a bit?

If you are just looking for a "tactical style" semi-auto 22 for general shooting, then the Mossberg is a good choice.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a 22 as an inexpensive way to train for your AR15/M16, then I would strongly recommend the S&W M&P1522. It is the only one of the newer AR style rimfire rifles that has the same manual of arms that the centerfire rifles do.

My nephew went with the M&P and used it in an Appleseed shoot and loved it.
