mossburg night train .308 advice

Has anyone ever tried the mossberg 308? I'm looking for an entry level 308 that is actually in my price range.



Thanks

It would help to know what your price range is.

Good point

Did you check the "guns for sale" section on this website?

Re: mossburg night train .308 advice

Ok sorry. I should have added more details. I can get a new mossberg night train 308 for $675. It comes with a bipod, 6-18×24 barska scope. Wondering if this would b worth the money or if these guns are known for problems. Anyone have experience with these guns? I live in Canada so getting guns shipped it a pain back there!!

Thanks again

I don't have experience with the rifle. It would depend on the brand and model of bipod. You could do a lot better than a Barska scope. The price sounds good but that could all be because of an inferior scope. Someone will eventually jump in as to the rifle's reliability.

Re: mossburg night train .308 advice

Ok thank-you to all. I did some research and figured out that scope did nothing to enhance the deal. I'll do some more looking around. I don't know what bipod it is my friend told me about this setup. Its at the local gun shop. Ill be waiting to see if anyone with one of these says anything.

Ok and while I'm here can someone suggest an alternative 308 that would b a good buy for under $700.
Thanks

I have a mossberg 100ATR in .270 and absolutely love it. With the right handloads It can shoot .5MOA. Not sure about the scope, might spend alittle more for some better glass down the road. I also have a savage 11 in .308 that shoots just as well. Found it at a Gander Mountain before hunting season with a Bushnell 3x9 for just $499. Either one will do great to start with and can easily be upgraded.
