    I went to the grocery store to pick up a couple items and Petersen's Rifle Shooter (March/April 2013) was on the rack announcing "Mossberg's NEW MVP IN 7.62". I grabbed the magazine and drove home with the pizza thinking I would give Sharkey the go ahead on a 6.5 Grendel barrel.

    Sorry Sharky, this one is 7.62 NATO not 7.62X39. Although I'm not as excited about this version of the MVP, it is an exciting addition to the MVP line, just not what I was thinking about.

    Hey Sharkey, how about a .260 Remington?

    The owner of my local gun shop has a very good working relationship with Marlin and got the scoop on the .308 MVP from his contact while at the SHOT show.
    It should be available mid summer 2013.
    Could be a bit sooner if everything goes better than planed and possibly a bit later if there are hitches in the logistics chain.

    What mag system is the 308MVP likely to use?

    Aussie D., According to the article in Petersen's Rifle Shooter, March/April 2013, "the MVP will use the DPMS/M-14 style magazine used by various AR-10 rifles, Bushmaster, DPMS and Remington to name a few." I don't know if they are a common item Down Under, but they are available in the U.S.

    Sounds like the SR25 pattern magazine.

    Both the M14 and SR25 mags are not common down here. currently out Customs clowns class any part that can fot a semi auto, as being for a semi auto, even if available for a bolt action. This may change in the future for up to 10 rd mags.

    You guys dont want to go the path imposed upon us....

    If your lucky enough to find some old school 1950's-60's vintage AR10 waffle mags they should fit as well.
    The DPMS/SR25 pattern is the new ancient/original/legacy AR10 type magazine.
    Not to be confused with the M14 Based AR10B magazines of the latter 1990's.

    If I could find ole school AR10 mags here they would probably fetch $300 plus each.....a good M14 mag probably goes for $200plus here....

    This is the outcome from our "semi auto ban" where only collectors, and licenced Cullers can own a semi auto. Whats here is here, so commands a premiun, plus you want to make sure you are licenced for a mag over 20 rd capacity....

    New world order....and you guys may be marching to Obamas tune soon...

    Cheers,

    DPMS and M14 mags aren't the same, I have a AR10 and it only works with DPMS mags the m14 mags are about .020 too long and won't go into the well.

    Correct.


    Armalite AR10B uses the modified M14 Magazine.

    Original /legacy AR10,current AR10A's, The 7.62 NATO rifles of DPMS, Knight and many others take the original AR10 "waffle" pattern type of magazine now more commonly being called SR25 or DPMS type/pattern/mags.

    The term "waffle mag" is decreasingly being used to describe the pattern or type of mag and instead is increasingly being used to describe and refer to the original 1950's-60's production magazines themselves.
