New Mossberg 4x4 Rifle!

Has anyone seen the new rifle from Mossberg? It is called a 4x4. In their new annual catalogue there is a review on a prototype, and by the review this sounds like an interesting gun for its price/value performance. It sure looks like they want to target Savage head on. Very similar features as the 111FXCP3 combo package. The differences that I see are: example, 30-06
Mossberg 4x4/ Savage 111
24" barrel/ 22" barrel
2 pos. safety/ 3 pos. safety
plastic side by side feed mag./ steel in-line feed mag.
vented forearm/ no
42" oal/ 42.5" oal
Available in syn, walnut, lam, stocks/ syn, walnut only
Gun only, comes with scope mounts/ no

I am in my second year of hunting and until now have borrowed my friend's and Uncle's guns, both being Savage 111's. I like what the Savage has to offer, however I think if this new Mossberg rifle shots as well as it looks, I will side towards the 4x4. The grey laminate/blue barrel has got my attention, especially if it is in the 500 dollar range. I do believe that Mossberg has put a lot of time into the look of the wood stock of this new rifle. What do you guy's think? Think

Welcome to the site!

I haven't heard of this new Marlin. I recall the old RM 7 was a nice rifle but I think Marlin was bogged down in the rimfire image and no one took them seriously, to bad. I'll have to look this one up! Thr RM 7 was a rotary magazine, that's what the RM ment. Is this the same?

I don't see where Marlin is gonna make a big dent in anybdy else's sale's. So I'd really like to see something like that come out in some kit's for reloader's. Wildcat cartridge with dies! Not if they made that in 6.5x284 or 6.5x06, then I think they'd have something.

Since when did Marlin buy out Mossberg? After talking to a few hunter's I do believe Mossberg is targeting the entry level of rifle market. ex. Savage. I am looking forward to some reviews. Big smile

Should have typed Mannlicher, that starts with "M" also, Don.
Would be like spelling in front of the children, they wouldn't know what you were were talking about, just us Ol Folks would Think Think Think
