Mossberg Maverick Rifle 30.06 Rifle Review Low Cost Prepping Option




What do you think about this video?

Steven Nihipali: Is $400 too much for a wood stock?

Tripp426: Wow I had no idea that Maverick offered rifles. I have a Model 88 12 gauge that I'm incredibly happy with, so I wouldn't mind trying one of these out. Thanks for showing this. Always nice to see what's out there for budget rifles.

MDPrepper: They no longer make this rifle but Mossberg certainly did make this rifle for some time. They were put together in Eagle Pass, TX along with the Mavericks. They were generally made from leftover parts from the older style mossy bolt rifles after they were upgraded/revised

Douglas Martin: i checked mossberg's website. they dont have a rifle named the maverick. i have a maverick shotgun that i love shooting.

MDPrepper: The Mossberg Maverick Rifle should make a decent beater/truck gun. I've had no problems with it but if you want a better rifle then I'd check out Remington 700 or the Savage line of bolt actions. For general purpose the Maverick rifle should do very well

alaskanhybrid: I just need a 300-500 Yard/meter rifle, in .30-06 that will shoot every single time (not continuously at that range) unless it is a bullet problem. Most of my shooting would be in semi open land, such as tundra, wooded areas, etc. Cause I will not walk more than 500 meters to get game cause I will most likely already have been walking pretty far in dense brush and such. Walking on Tundra is a pain in the ankles.

MDPrepper: It's an excellent price for a rifle (considering the quaility and price) I had a friend who bought a 770 (terrible rifle). The Maverick isn't fancy and doesn't have the best trigger but for the price it's an excellent beater rifle. Mine hasn't failed in any way. It's not a Remington 700 but it does the job reliably. I just wish I could find one in 308 locally. I wouldn't consider it a primary rifle but it's a great secondary

alaskanhybrid: Is this good for the price, even normal price? I got burned with Remington and their lame as hell Model 770. Horrendous that rifle was. I ripped the Bolt Handle right out, they pressed it in. I need a rifle that does not have bolt handles falling out. I need a .30-06 for Moose and maybe Bears here in Alaska. My dad when he was alive and his dad trusted their old .30-06 for bear,moose, caribou etc. I got a scope lying around from that Model 770.

MDPrepper: Medium. . .if I remember correctly

gmendiola: What size scope rings are you using? Med or high?

DPeter1967: $179 from Wal-Mart. Kicks like a mule,.... Purchase a limbsaver or other recoil pad. Excellent shot group with a 4X16. Mounted Center Point scope (Wal-Mart). Excellent value!!! Yea, I said Wal Mart, picked up the Mossberg 702 Plinkster .22 cal there also ($106)...Wal Mart is the preppers friend....

MDPrepper: Hmm. . .sounds like we have different rifles. I appreciate your plan to preserve your "finer" firearms while being able to abuse your "beater" rifles hence the reason I purchased the Maverick. It's not a "great" rifle. . .but it's good enough for general "beater" uses. My understanding is that the Maverick rifles are very similar (if not identical) to the first generation ATR rifles but I don't think that compares well to the newer ATR's but I might be wrong as I don't shoot bolt actions much

MDPrepper: Mine is actually called the Maverick by Mossberg (its on the left side of the barrel) They are very similar to the older style ATR rifles but not exactly the same (per my understanding) The Maverick doesn't have an adjustable trigger. Mine didn't come with a scope that I picked up afterwards for about $30-40. From what I understand: the Maverick and the ATR aren't the same rifle

MDPrepper: The Model 70 is certainly a "sweet-heart" for form and function. I don't shoot much with my "higher priced" bolt guns so I consider the Mossberg to be decent (I shoot mostly surplus bolt actions like the Mosin Nagant etc) Have you tried loading different manufacturer's rounds?? That might make the difference?? Just guessing though

MDPrepper: Hmm that is odd. I've got about 75 or so rounds through mine and haven't seen any problems (yeah the trigger isn't the best but I don't consider it a problem. . .I consider it part of a low cost rifle) Keep me updated as I'd love to know what the problems actually was/is. Very curious. Have you been firing dirty ammo?? Russian steel cased etc?? Just a thought

MDPrepper: What caliber is yours?? I've not had any feed problems or loading problems with mine so far with 30-06

MDPrepper: Where are you located??

Jackbozo22134: I live in sc 2

MDPrepper: Fairly well for the cost of the rifle. Well worth it for the price for a beater rifle. You can hit anything you want within 100 yards

MDPrepper: @bigdogbuc I've never seen their Maverick rifle listed on either website (not sure why). You'll usually find them at big-box outdoor stores (Academy etc) Never seen one for sale at any small/local gun stores. Perfectly decent rifles though. Glad you like the channel! MDP
