Yeah, Its a pretty solid gun, Ive used it mostly for Hogs, and a ocassional coyote.Overall its a good gun, I prefer my remington 700 .270, but still in my top 3.

No. I've heard good and bad, but the bad was mostly speculation. If you need a cheap bare bones rifle, get a Marlin X7.

The ATR's and X7's are good sellers in my shop, had one X7 come in with loose scope mount.

My brother's got an ATR in .270, and once he found loads that it liked, it was shooting super tight groups. Ofc, the quality isn't as good as a higher priced gun, but it's a good deal for the money.

I'd recommend a Vanguard though. $400 for the black on black version. Can't beat that price, it's an excellent rifle.

Why would someone pass over a Vanguard, Howa, Savage, or Remington 700 which have been manufactured for many years with a solid design and track record for some cheap rifle from a manufacturer who decided to jump into the centerfire rifle market? Hokey muzzle brakes and molded in fluted barrels on .308's? Go figure.

WAM- Not everyone is drawn in by the 'hokey' muzzle brakes and fluted barrels, some of us may be looking for a good beater gun that is reliable without a huge price tag.

Many people all across this country, especially lately, can't afford even a $400 dollar rifle. A 300 versus 400 dollar gun can be the difference in giving your kid lunch money for school or not. This is the reality for many people in America now, whether you are blind to it or unwilling to admit it or not. It's very easy to poo poo cheap things when you are or have always been well off. That's all some will ever have.

I think the Marlin X7 would be a better buy than the Mossberg. I have heard rave reviews about the accuracy of the Marlin. Or a used Savage 110 would certainly hit that price point.

The initial question said nothing about needing a cheap budget rifle. Simply asked about the ATR.

Stop your whining about can't aford this or can afford that. This is not an egalitarian society. I do without many non-essential things because I can't justify "affording" them. Get some more government cheese to go with that whine.

Would you not put the Mossberg ATR into the cheap budget category? Generally when you're looking at a Mossberg you're not also thinking about getting a 700.

Maybe someone wants to eat venison instead of government cheese, so they need a cheap rifle. A Mossberg will still put bullets into deer whether you like it or not.

No one whined about anything, but if the rifle someone's considering is cheap, it's probably because they can't or don't want to drop the cash on one that makes someone else's approved guns list. So ignore the question unless you have something positive to contribute.

So are these examples of "ignore unless you have something positive to say"?

I never got the whole "proud of the legacy of losing a war fought over states' rights (to practice slavery)" thing."

OR THIS ONE:

What you cannot do? Win a rusting race with an 870 (rust) Express."

OR MAYBE THIS ONE:

"from shane wrote 6 weeks 6 days ago
770 is junk.
A Marlin XL7 or XS7 (300 or less), a Weatherby Vanguard, and maybe even a Savage 11/111 can be had in the $300-400 range.
The scope you get on that combo will also be junk.
The .300 Winchester is a good one if you'll be taking long shots. If you won't it's a waste of your time and money. "

So how about it Mr. Positive Comment?
