Mossberg 464 SPX - Nearly speechless...

So, Mossberg has announced its 464 SPX "Tactical Lever Action".

And I am nearly speechless:



How well will it actually sell?

Mossberg seems to be trying to hard, but at the same time, not enough. They offer good intentions but go the wrong way with it. The A2 flash hider cracks me up

A "tacti-kool" M94? Methinks not.

Tactical Lever Action... seems like a contradiction in terms. Are they going for the High-Tech Cowboy demographic? I think they have lost focus a bit...

I wonder if Hornady will make their Zombie ammo in 30-30 now? One can only hope.

.30-30 was included in the initial release of Zombie ammo.

At first, I thought this was a joke. They may turn out to be nice shooters, but I don't see them selling well.

Up until now, I couldn't clearly define my opinion of the ugliest, most hideous firearm I've ever laid eyes on.
But now I can thank Mossberg for making that an easy call.

Maybe they'll make another variant with the Barrett look-a-like brake and the chainsaw grip from the last shotgun they put out.

Jee-rusalem. I have a 930 SPX that I love, but I am embarrassed for them by that. Sorry, but there are some things that shouldn't be tacticalized.

That's as bad as the "Roadblocker" .22

OK... I just noticed the muzzle break on the .22... why would that possibly be necessary?

'Cause everybody knows you can't have rails if you don't have a brake! And how can you have a brake if you don't have your rails?
