New From Mossberg: FLEX-22 Rifles

Image courtesy Mossberg

You obviously liked Mossberg’s FLEX modular shotgun. So much so, you selected it for one of last year’s Readers Choice awards as best new scattergun. And we really liked the FLEX-equipped .22LR Plinksters we saw at the SHOT Show. I wondered how long it would be before they hit the shelves. Because a lot of SHOT Show debutantes (*cough* Arsenal Strike One *cough*) take a long time to really come out and dance. Not these rifles, though. They’re already here . . .

Mossberg Announces FLEX Everything…Well, Almost

Look closely at the receiver which that FLEX buttstock is (mostly) attached to. That’s not your grandfather’s Mossberg 500: it’s an MVP bolt-action rifle in .308 Winchester. It also takes M-14 mags (which is awesome BTW) but it’s not the only Mossberg model that’s getting the FLEX treatment . . .

TTAG Readers Choice Award Goes To Mossberg FLEX

IMG_0522

TTAG Managing Editor Dan Zimmerman is shown here presenting Mossberg’s Linda Powell with TTAG’s Reader’s Choice Award for Best Shotgun Of 2013. Their new FLEX system lets you swap out just about everything on a Mossberg 500 shotgun (save the magazine tube) instantly, without tools. In a year where not much else changed in the world of shotguns, the FLEX system is gathering steam to change just about everything. Well done, Mossberg; keep it up.

Gun Review: Mossberg FLEX 500 Shotgun

 

Just about every shooter owns, has owned or will someday own a Mossberg Model 500 shotgun. Like a Winchester Model 94 or a Ruger 10/22, the old Mossy is just one of those guns that endures forever while newer designs come and go. It’s always been a snap to swap Mossberg 500 barrels, and now it’s literally a snap to swap out just about everything else. The Mossberg FLEX 500 is the most modular shotgun system ever made. It’s the Stoner 63 of pump-action shotguns. Is that cool or what? . . .

Gun Review: Mossberg Model 930 ‘Tactical’ Autoloading Shotgun

Image: Chris DummTTAG is no stranger to the Mossberg Model 930: the 930 SPX was rigorously compared to the FNH-SLP in 2011, and the 930 SPX was also the subject of its own review in 2010. This is not a review of the 930 SPX. The Model 930 is one of the lowest-priced autoloading shotguns on the market, and the only such budget boomstick to be made in America. Other semi-automatic shotguns might have illustrious police and military pedigrees, but none of them share the Mossy’s’s $499 street price or ‘Made In USA’ bragging rights . . .

New(ish) From Mossberg: Lots Of Rails, QD Buttstocks, Threaded Muzzles

Mossberg’s rifles and shotguns remain largely the same as what they exhibited last year, with some evolutionary (as opposed to ‘revolutionary’) design improvements. Some of them, like the threaded muzzles on this bottom MVP rifle, are awesome. Flash hiders and muzzle brakes are fine, but the suppressor market is what Mossy is really gunning for. And that is simply awesome.
