The first one I had was marked 702 plinkster tactical.
And yes inside was a 702 core rifle.
The new one is the 715T, and internally, it is the same rifle, same takedown, just a different bolt handle, and different markings.
I am not complaining.
I have owned several 1022's over the years. Both stock, and accessorized.
Even one in the late 80's with a metal under folding stock like an ak.
Uncomfortable to say the least, but it went in a nice small package behind the seat of the truck.
I enjoy the mossberg much more than I ever enjoyed the ruger..
I can say this.
I sold a ruger stainless boat paddle stock since I had the mossberg..
I make 2 predictions:
ON THE DATE WHEN US TROOPS ARE ISSUED AN Energy Pulse Weapon,
1. The US Soldier will have on his person a version of the Colt 1911.
2. He will be aiming the NEW Weapon at someone carrying an AK.
