Mossberg Maverick Rifle 30.06 Rifle Review Low Cost Prepping Option




What do you think about this video?

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: @AmericanMade72 I make vids to unwind after work. . .takes my mind away from a chaotic day. Glad you like the channel. MDP

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.

floydholder: For the money, it is what it is! I bought one to save wear and tear on my Model 70 and maybe I'm spoiled The bolt 's action is pretty clunky and cartridges tend to jam up as you reload them into the magazine. It has a built in magazine with a spring loaded plate similar to the Model 70's, but it doesn't guide the cartridges in nearly as smoothly and takes me about twice as long to reload as any of my other rifles with similar mechanisms. I do agree with what the poster says about the accuracy.

floydholder: The only rounds I ever had a fouling problem with was some cheap ass CCI 38's and 357's I shot years ago through a Ruger Super Blackhawk 357 and after two boxes I never bought anythiing from CCI again.

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: @AmericanMade72 Thanks those are my earlier vids so they kinda suck. . .the newer ones are better

AmericanMade: Ditto. Nice channel, nice review. Damn, you put up enough videos in just 3 months! I'm subbed!

Cr Cook: Nice Review and Channel I love my 179$ 243 Maverick Thank for checking out my video - Charles

floydholder: I've shot bolt actions most of my life, shotguns and rifles for that matter. Really only got two rifles that I consider worth much, the model 70 and a Marlin .22 Mag with the feeder tube under the barrel. Also got a 12 GA Winchester Pump, but haven't had the opportunity to really use it much yet. I've got an old 16 GA Mossberg Model 190 bolt action shotgun with a drop out clip that I inherited from an uncle about 30 years ago that I hope to pass on just for the family history.

53Awesome: Is it too late for a sarah palin joke?

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: 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

53Awesome: @MDPrepper Probably, but "maverick" seems to be her favorite word

floydholder: Well then we may not be comparing apples to apples, my apologies for that. Mine says 100 ATR where yours says Maverick on the left side. I would kind of figure the basics would still be the same though. I'll let you know what I find out about the bolt just in case it could help you in the future. I bought it for the same reason you did, my model 70 is cherry so far and I want to leave it that way for my son if possible. If SHTF though, the model 70 comes in to the game.

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

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....

AmericanMade: @AmericanMade72 I especially love the prepping on the cheap series!

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

MDPrepper: @53Awesome Nay she'd pick a.Remington 700 in .308. If you gotta go out. . .go out with class!

floydholder: Got a question here, your calling this the "Maverick" model, is that the same as the 100 ATR series? Mine is actually the 100 ATR and has an adjustable trigger, which so far I kind of like. I bought it last year at Academy as a package deal with a 3X9X40 scope for $210.00 which made me initially think we have the same guns, but maybe I ASS-U-MEd wrong.

floydholder: All the ammo I've shot though it has either been Winchester or new Fusion. The Winchester rounds were a few years old, but I've never had an issue with fouling from any Winchester rounds for my pistols, rifles or shotguns in over 40 years of shooting..

MDPrepper: Medium. . .if I remember correctly

MDPrepper: @53Awesome Go right ahead and try

zombiekillerjordan: I have a Mossberg 100 ATR in 270 win....basicaly the same rifle...not bad for money, took my first deer with it.

MDPrepper: Hah, I said "scope mount" I of course meant sling mounts & swivels. My bad!

livefreeordie42017: great gun very accurate and reliable so far

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: Where are you located??

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

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: 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

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

floydholder: The loading issue may just be because I got so used to my Model 70 30-06. With the Mossberg there seems to be more length in the magazine and unless I position the cartridges up close to the very front of the magazine when pushing them down, they get out of alignment and jam up preventing the next shell from going in. Now as for as chambering the next round, it hasn't jammed, just real clunky as I said earlier and that may be related to my current bolt issue.

floydholder: It's a 30-06 also, I've shot about 50 rounds through it. I've got to take it to a gun smith now, the last time I cleaned it the bolt wouldn't turn all the way back to a fully seated position like it should and I can not figure out why for the life of me. I've got several rifles, shotguns, revolvers and semi-auto handguns and am able to fully disassemble, clean and put them all back together without issue. This one's got me stumped though.

karmadog7777: The million dollar question, "how does it shoot?"

karmadog7777: Nice, that is a great value!

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

53Awesome: @MDPrepper When she inevitably goes insane and climbs a clock tower, it will be with this

bigdogbuc: Had a Remington 710 in 30-06. Cost way more than this. But it shot well. Question though; I searched, googled and otherwise tried to find a website for Mossberg Maverick and it led me to Mossbergs site (which has no mention of maverick) and then Maverick site which shows only the shotguns (no rifles) then links you back to Mossberg. What's the deal with that? Thanks for your "prepping on the cheap" series. They're fun.

MDPrepper: @livefreeordie42017 Indeed!! Very hard to beat for $179

Jackbozo22134: I live in sc 2

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: 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

Cert: Building stuff is always in my family gene. My dad is a new york auto technician and taught me everything I need to know about cars. Now I sell car parts online to suppliment my income. So it does help when there's good guidance.
