Has anyone heard or seen anything about the new Mossberg MMR AR15? It looks pretty neat, and it's from a company you know -- a family owned one no less -- unlike Olympic, Bushmaster, etc.

I haven't....but I LIKE it! Just Googled the name and don't see anyone selling them yet. Probably be like the Ruger 1911, made of unobtainium.

How can you not love a Mossberg? Would love to see the retail price of that be comparable to Bushmaster & DPMS AR's equipped similarly..

For the fact that it is a US company, run by generations of family, and is made in the US, the price looks to be about right IMO. I'll pay a little extra for American made quality, otherwise i would have bought an HR Pardner or Savage Security to save a little over $100 instead of a Mossberg 500. Don't get me wrong, Bushmasters and DPMS are fine guns for the money, but it's parent company also got $13 billion in bailout money from all of us just to save Chrysler. They could put those things on a walmart rollback after lining their pockets so much.

Mossberg is trying real hard to get more sales from law enforcement. They have a new bolt action that they are billing as tactical and I bet they are going to go for the package deal for departments. Get your sniper rifle, carbine and cruiser shotgun all at one stop shopping. You might see a glock forgery coming from them too.
