Just Bought The Mossberg Tactical .22

I'm giddy as a school girl right now. I've been wanting one of these for nearly a month and every time I'd locate one locally, it would be sold by the time I got there. I honestly think they just wanted me to come in so they could sell me something else.

Then I found out about Gun Genie by accident and just ordered one to be sent to one of the local stores here in Vegas. I haven't read the TOS on posting links yet, but I'm sure someone is familiar with it. I'm actually thinking about buying more guns from them.

Anyway, quick question for those that have this gun. What are the pros and cons you've found so far?

About a year ago,,,

About a year ago,,,
American Rifleman did a test of several AR style rimfire rifles.

The Mossberg was one of the rifles they reviewed.

Naturally they gushed pages and pages over the mainstream brands,,,
The review of the Mossberg was a very short and terse one,,,
But the gist was they couldn't find anything bad to say.

They had to admit their accuracy results were on a par with,,,
Or better than rifles costing three times as much.

The mossberg tactical is built on their 702 Plinkster action,,,
Again, that rifle always gets mediocre reviews,,,
But never an outright bad review.

I've owned a 702 Plinkster now for about 3 1/2 years,,,
I run Federal Bulk Pack from Wal Mart through it,,,
It just keeps firing and hasn't jammed yet.

I'm going to predict a good experience with your new rifle.

Let us know how it runs for you,,,
And a few pics would be nice.

I worked with one.
Except for a bad extended mag (just out at the time), it ran fine & shot well.
