Mossberg Introduces A Lever Action Tactical Rifle - 11

The creative minds at O.F. Mossberg and Sons have come up with a first: a tactical level action rifle, the patent-pending 464 SPX Lever-Action, based on the gunmaker’s time-tested 464 lever action.

Chambered for .22LR and .30-30 Win, the tactical adornments of the 464 SPX include: a six-position adjustable, synthetic stock; tri-rail forends with rail covers; and adjustable fiber optic sights. All rifles in the SPX line also come with front and rear sling swivel studs and in durable matte blue metal finishes.

There are two models in .22LR, one with a ported muzzle brake, the other without. Each of these .22LR versions has a compact 18-inch barrel with rifle sights. The receiver features dovetail-style mounts for ease of adding optics. With full-length magazine tube, total ammunition capacity is 14 rounds.

Two models of 464 SPX are available in .30-30 Win—one with a flash suppressor, one without. Both feature a compact 16 ¼-inch barrel with 1:10 twist rate, a six-round total capacity, adjustable 3-dot fiber optic sights, and a drilled/tapped receiver with scope rail.

MSRP’s from $497 to $535, depending on model.

Lever actions are intrinsically inaccurate.

Their bolt design makes it virtually impossible to get a tight lockup.

Their two piece stocks introduce extra movement and looseness.

A traditional Model 94 style carbine in 30-30 is fine for close range deer hunting in the woods.

But a "tactical" lever action is a ridiculous oxymoron.

If this had been Remington offering this everyone would be all over it. I don't understand why there's so much hatred toward Mossberg. I love it. But then again, I love tradition and progress.

this must of been thought up by the same egghead designers at Mossberg who thought a muzzle brake on the Plinkster .22lr was a great idea.....

I think its a goos way to get people into useing lever actions again. Might bring some more younger people into the sport.

I think this is stupid. Like DSM said, I do not know why anyone would want this.

I'm sorry but I can't imagine why anyone would be interested in such a thing. This has got to be a marketing thing that any weapon, knife, article of clothing etc with the word "tactical" in it will sell better.
