What is the Lightning Bolt Action (LBA) Adjustable Trigger?

The LBA adjustable trigger blade requires the blade to be fully depressed in order for the sear to release the striker. As you can see in the MVP LC model, the LBA blade is attached to the trigger and is used as a safety device. The LBA is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and hard-coat anodized to comply with military specifications requirements. The MilSpec requirements will ensure that the LBA trigger lasts longer and prevents corrosion from the elements. The best feature of the LBA trigger is you can adjust the trigger pull weight from 2-7 lbs with a simple turn from a screwdriver.

What is an MDT Chassis?

The MDT LSS Light Chassis system is specifically designed to be compact and lightweight for maneuverability and stability. The forend of the chassis is free-floated to improve accuracy and ergonomics by reducing felt-recoil. The whole chassis is built from 6061-T6 aluminum, which is essentially aircraft-grade aluminum used in commercial aircraft. This level of rigidness and flexibility required to handle air travel is used to control the force from the explosion of a gun being fired. The MDT LSS is designed to be placed on AR-15 style buttstock and will fit just about any rifle with an adapter.

Noveske 7.62X51MM 168GR Ballistic Glow Tip Ammunition

Many people have never heard of Noveske ammo, but I am here to convert you to at least try his products. All Noveske ammo is produced by Nosler to ensure the highest quality materials are used for each bullet.

Winchester 308 168GR Ballistic Silvertip Rifle Ammunition

Winchester ammo is one of the most proven ammo companies in the world and never really disappoint me with any of their products. The Winchester Silvertip ammo is built with a polymer tip to prevent deformation and advance the expansion of the bullet. The Alloyed lead core ensures great weight retention for much deeper penetration through the deer than you’d get with a lot of ammo. The contoured jacket provides a consistent and rapid expansion to knock down any deer you hit with this bullet. Maybe I come across as lazy, but I hate chasing deer that I’ve shot through the dense woodlands of Virginia. I never want an animal to suffer at my hands so I trust premier ammunition to make sure that I kill them quickly.

What is the LUTH-AR MBA-3 Stock?

The Luth-AR MBA-3 Stock is meant to replace the standard AR-15 style rifles with a more customizable stock. The MBA-3 stock will fit in any commercial or Mil-Spec buffer tube for easy installation and familiarity. The MBA-3 has a 3-axis Buttplate for the ability to customize your recoil pad in a number of configurations. I love the fact that you can adjust the length of pull with much higher precision with the simple turn of a knob. The cheek plate will allow you to raise it up to get a better sight picture through your scope without adding tape or some other modification. The MBA-3 comes with sling attachments for standard slings and the ever-popular QD cups, but you have to buy those separately.


What is a .224 Valkyrie?

The Mossberg MVP Predator is chambered in a very unique round that many people haven’t heard of before, called the .224 Valkyrie. The .224 Valkyrie is a .22 caliber rimless bottlenecked cartridge. It’s designed with the same diameter as the 5.56x45mm NATO bullet, but has a shorter case length and holds more powder in the casing. This allows the .224 Valkyrie have increased muzzle velocity and heavier bullets, which increases the accuracy of the bullet.

What is a Bull Barrel?

All Mossberg MVP rifles are fluted and made with bull barrels to improve the rigidity in order to increase the accuracy of the rifle. A bull barrel is made to be completely cylindrical and doesn’t taper outward like many other rifles. This reduces the vibrations in the barrel caused by the firing operation of the rifle. A bull barrel will increase the accuracy of the rifle by reducing the felt recoil and the effects of the vibrations from the gas and air pressure.

What is a Fluted Barrel?

A fluted barrel is a process in which the barrel is cut down to form grooves on the cylindrical surface to decrease weight. Fluting has been attributed to an increase in accuracy and improved cooling during high rates of fire. Fluting the barrel and bolt can decrease the overall weight of the rifle by at least 1 pound. There are many models of the Mossberg MVP that flute the barrel and the bolt to improve the weight and ergonomics of the rifle.
