    Any new experiences with the Mossberg Night Train 2 rifle?

    So I'm looking at this interesting piece someone has for sale - The Mossberg Night Train 2 with Barska scope and bi-pod.



    Here are the specs I have:



    MOS ATR NIGHT TRAIN2 308 22" BL/SY

    Cost: $799

    ATR ® NIGHT TRAIN ™ 2 • .308 Winchester• 4+1 capacity• 22 " fluted barrel• Black synthetic stock• Bolt-action• Creep-free Lightning Bolt Action ™ (LBA ™ ) Trigger System• Free-floating, button-rifled barrel• Barska 6-24x50mm variable scope w/multicoated optics, variable brightness illuminated crosshair reticle, 5'' sunshade & flip-open lens protectors• Picatinny rail• Muzzle break• Harris ® adjustable bipod• Neoprene comb raising kit w/foam cheek pad inserts• Top load magazine• Matte blue finish• Wt.: 9.5 lbs.• OAL: 42''• Fully factory assembled• 2-Year Limited Warranty• Includes: gun lock





    So no sling or case. Scope seems to have good reviews to a degree, for a cheaper scope anyway (the thing is huge).



    If I were really looking for a 7.62, frankly I'd rather have a larger mag, but that is minor. What do you think of this for the price?

    hmm. no personal experience here, just day dreaming basically...
    but, Mossberg, who isn't exactly a noted Rifle manufacturer.. throws together a push feed style bolt rifle with what I can see is a much smaller extractor than an M700.
    It looks stripped down and simplified compared to it's Remington counter-part....
    The scope... I'm not... to easy....
    I see on "predatormasters" sme guy had his bolt come apart, which showed that it's simply a knurled part pressed together? and that's supposed to hold the firing spring pin indefinitely? not good design right there...

    don't get me wrong, I like Mossy and my 590 has been my fav shotgun for years... but when I add everything up I am seeing about this gun...
    the last nail being it's stupid name...
    not for this cat.... I guess if the price is right for a plinker... but I wouldn't trust it for the "big hunt" and a dang sure wouldn't trust it with my or my families life....
    spend a little more and get used Remmy if you want a push feed, or a used Win Model 70 pre-64 for a Claw style....
    OR a Ruger American, or, or, or....

    wow- and for $800 bones I would DEFINATELY get something better....
    Beans, Bullets, and Bandages. The only thing better than being ready is not having to use it!

    For $800 it is a full blown rip off. I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Also, Barska scopes are bottom feeders.

    If you are looking for a long range rifle on a budget I suggest a Savage model 10.

    Savage 4 + 1 308 Win. Law Enforcement/24" Heavy Fluted Barre $711.00 SHIPS FREE

    ^^^^^ This rifle is the real deal. You can get a WAY better scope than a Barska for not too much $$$$.

    The "Nighttrain" is all fluff.

    Or with a standard profile barrel and a nice Nikon scope...

    or shiny...

    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
