Shooting the 464 SPX

Shooting the 464 SPX

First thing, you’ll notice that the rifle is sporting a different butt-stock.   Thanks to Matt for sending it.  The new stock still had some wiggle to it like most all M4 stocks do, but it’s not rattling as it fits much better than the original ATI.   It’s bit lighter, and a lot less […]

I finally got it. The Mossberg 464 SPX.

I have already put a box of rounds through it, and I’m quiet happy with it.  Functionally it was flawless, which was a huge step up from the last Lever Action I bought, the Marlin 1895, which immediately had to go back to the factory for 6 weeks. The accuracy was very good. I have […]

Still can’t stop thinking about...

Still can’t stop thinking about it…

I know I’ve talked about the Mossberg 464 SPX before.  I know I’ve said that I wanted it.  Passing fad sort of want… But lately I’ve been thinking about it a lot more.  Can’t get it out of my mind.  Stupid sort of thing… like a pop-song that’s stuck in your head. Gah… If I’m […]

Ellott Brother’s Show in Columbia

Pre-SHOT Show so not a lot of the newest.  Mostly it’s Pre-Shot clearing of older products.  But there was some new things: This is SIG’s new BRAVO 4 optic.   Much larger field of view than the Leupold HAMR, with brightness and clarity that rivaled ELCAN.  SIG has a whole new line up of Optics […]

Updated: The Mossberg 464 SPX: 6 Reason to buy one.

I can admit it when I’m wrong.   I can change my opinion when new information comes to light.   And I can change my opinion when something I once thought a disgusting abomination proves to be actually useful.   Well, in this case, that Something is the Mossberg 464 SPX.   When I first […]

Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grip.

Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grip.

This was one of those “What the hell, I’ll try it” sort of things.  With a big “I’m glad I did” sort of results.   I was in the market for a new stock, but not exactly for a pistol grip… so I’d likely have passed this up until our friend Ryan Horst at Tannerman’s […]

Dear Mossberg

Dear Mossberg

Please stop what you are doing. Just stop it. Your Lever Action SPX. Stop it. Your huge Breacher muzzle devices. Stop it. All of your Bolt Action Rifles. Just stop it. Your Road Blocker and Chainsaws… STOP! You have become the BUDK Catalog of the Firearms Industry. I now CRINGE every time one of your […]

S&W and Shotgunning

Over on Facebook, Jerry Miculek posted about a young lady getting her new JM Signature Mossberg 930.  This sparked much though.  Jerry is a great guy and I have had the pleasure of meeting him and talking with him at a SHOT Show “Media Range Day”.  He is a Gentlemen to be sure, and one of the […]

Marlington

Marlington

I think Marlin, and by that I mean Remington, needs to stop making the X7 centerfire bolt action rifles.  Marlin is a Lever Action Company… they need to stick to that.  They do fine Rimfires… which is fine.  Remington has nothing in that market.  But Remington making a Marlin branded Savage Knockoff?  Feh… Why? To […]

Mossberg 930 SPX, lets get critical.

Mossberg 930 SPX, lets get critical.

At the gunshop I work at, we got in more of the Mossberg 930 SPX tactical shotguns.  Even though they have had a huge surge in popularity, they are the same price as they were before.  About 600 bucks.  They have improved the SPX slightly.  For one, they gave the SPX a larger bolt handle, […]
