    Special ordered a varmint rifle from field and stream and finally picked it up, I noticed that it didn't come with a Mossberg mag but instead came with a Pmag. Wondering if anyone knows if this is now common practice with Mossberg now ? Also didn't get the correct instruction manual but instead had one for their pump shotgun

    Guess they figured out their Mberg mags (which look like C-Products mags in reality) have not been the best feeding mags available. The manual, well that's just super funny but entirely emblematic of Mossy's QC. Call up Mossy and ask. They're 50:50 liable to give you some bullpucky cockamamie line but they might tell you the truth and they're certain to promptly send you the right manual.

    See our stickies for new MVP owners. You'll be happy you did.

    Both of mine came with the metal mags. I believe they are/were made by D&H. I have seen that some people have been getting the Magpuls but I'm not sure if it is model specific or if all of them are coming with Magpul now or not.

    My .308 patrol came with a Pmag. They probably figured out it was cheaper to buy 308 pmags than metal ones.

    Here purchased in July 2017 in Canada. Packing date is April 2016.

    Metal mag here, pinned to 5 rounds (Canadian law ,its an AR-type mag). And I got a Deadringer 4-16 x 50 scope instead of a Barska.

    People used to complain about the metal mags not feeding smooth enough for them. Those polymer P-Mags feed smooth as butter.

    The steel and aluminum mags do run a bit rough but are manageable as long as you run the bolt like it owes you money.

    Not for bolt actions. Mossy fucked that up. Go get AR pistol mags. They are 10 rounds
