Mossberg 464 SPX Centerfire and Rimfire Lever-Action Rifles
Why would you want a tactical lever action rifle? Well, why not. Mossbergs two new lever action rifles chambered in .22LR and .30-.30 Win. look pretty bizarre with an adjustable 6-position AR-style stock and an elevated comb and tri-rail forearm with ladder rail covers.
Since these rifles weren’t at the range and only shown at a press conference, I can’t yet say how they shoot, but I do see the cool factor in a small-caliber, lever action rifle with a stock that allows for a length-of-pull adjustment of nearly four inches. I could see this being a great first rifle that can grow with a young shooter, until they get embarassed to be seen with it in public. I can also see me putting a foregrip on that bottom rail and having an awful lot of fun at the range with either of these bizarre-looking creations.
The 464 SPX includes 3-dot fiber optic sights and will be available with or without a flash suppressor or muzzlebrake. --DM
