New guy from Kansas here! I was in Cabela's last week and spotted a used MVP Patrol in 5.56. I had been reading about them so I picked it up for $450. I don't think that was too bad a deal. It was missing the rear sight, so I ordered one from Mossberg, but I have yet to shoot it. I'm going to take the Nikon .223 1.5 x4 off my AR and see what it does with that before I decide on glass. The barrel of this rifle was filthy, it too a lot of Hoppes and scrubbing to get it to shine. I suspect the previous owner ran Russian through it. I hope to get it out next week and sight it in. My load of 24 grains of H335 over a 55 get FMJBT is good in my AR so I'm hoping it'll perform in my MVP. Anyway, looking forward to learning and hopefully giving some input to the forum.
