Anybody deal with Mossberg ATR 100 rifle

I have one of these at the house to be fitted into a wood stock for a buddy , its the first one I've seen in person and it appears to be ALOT like the Savage action and looks like a barrel nut setup like the Savage but with a differant nut shape.

Just wondering if anybody has messed with one or know whats involver with rebarreling one as he wants to add a bigger barrel to it.

Re: Anybody deal with Mossberg ATR 100 rifle

There was a discussion about this on another forum as someone was considering doing a barrel swap on one. I've never had one in my hands but my understanding is they even use the same thread and pitch on the barrel as a Savage. I'm not sure a Savage barrel wouldn't be a drop in fit.

I appologize. It was a Marlin I was thinking of. It's no wonder it took me so long to find, I was looking for the wrong rifle.

Stevens 200 or Marlin XL7 for a project

Re: Anybody deal with Mossberg ATR 100 rifle

James,

I just drug one home this evening.

The owner ia all excited about shooting something with it.

As you said it kind of like a Savage but a little nifter with smaller recoil lugs.

The tupperware stock seems stiff enough and it seems put together pretty well.

My first observation was that the bolt head doesn't seem very robust, but I haven't measured anything yet. I'll break it
down tomorrow and see what it's made of.

Its a 270 Winnie. I'm interested in how well it will make a 450 yard gun.

BTW, that Savage action made quite a shooter in 7mm Rem. I have a 140 gr Hornady just loafing along but it'll do for what it's intended.

Did you do anything to the trigger? Its the sweetest one on the rack at the moment. Pretty amazing!!

@100 yards my 100ATR in 270 drives tacks with barnes bullets 130. I'm trying the hornady interlocks soon, but doubt they can be any better than the barnes. Factory ammo win powerpoints, I was about 1.5 inches@100, not bad, about what I expected. All in all, for 300 bucks, its a darn fine hunting rifle, but dont neglect its shooting abilities too.

I have purchased one of the ATRs in a 308. Great price with bi pod and scope. but when I took it to the range, I was greatly disappointed. This rifle kicked like a 300 weatherby mag. I couldn't get any kind of a group. I am prior service and own all kinds of guns but this one went back with a smile. Now on the other hand I purchased a Mossberg 4x4 30-06 and it ranks up there with me as one of the best weapons you can purchase for the money.
