mossberg 100ATR in a 270? what do you all think?
 
Hey, I'm from Kentucky an I'm thinking of buying a Mossberg 100ATR in a 270. It has a synthetic stock an a 22inch barrel. I can get it new for about $350.00, what do you all think about the gun an price. I know the 270 cal is a good one but the gun I do not know about all I have had from them is shotgun's. thanks for the help, Drew

Its a decent gun but $350 is a bad price. It should be around $250 actually. For $350 look at a Savage, Stevens, Marlin XL, Weatherby Vanguard, Howa, or used they are all better then the ATR 100 and you will be much happier with them. As for the 270 its my favorite round and you will be very happy with it.

i own one in 270. love it. shoots awsome.
350?? is that with the new adjustable trigger??
i paid 250 at walmart for mine about 2 years ago.
havent had any problems with it at all. put on a good scope and youll be set.
you will not be disapointed with the atr. but 350 seems alittle high tho for it.

I know that the models from a few years ago experienced some feeding problems .. but I also read that they corrected that eventually, but I don't know the years of the problems or crrections ...

I would echo all the brands that RugerM77.270 mentioned and if price is your sticking point or very important go shoulder the Marlin XL where you can find it ... it has received excellent reviews from some very picky gun writers and I can't call to mind a single criticism of it so far. Since 270 is your goal then go for it.
I'm going to seriously look at the XS line of the Marlin (short action).

Now it's your turn to get to the range and report back to us about how it's working out.

Look forward to hearing from you after you get a cuple boxes through the Mossberg

OK, I put a Box an a half of win 308 150 grain bullets Thu it yesterday an I'm VERY happy with it! My 14 year old son an my self both shot it an was amazed by the mossberg scope and the gun. The new trigger system they have on it allows you to adjust the pull from 2 to 7 pounds, 2 pounds is just right. The specs on this gun is, Mossberg 100 ATR 308 cal with a 22inch free floating barrel an a synthetic stock an it also comes with a mossberg 4x9 scope all for around $350.00 an i called around an thats what it is across the board. Like a say it is a smooth shooting gun an i could not be any happier with it, go out there an pick you one up it is so worth the money!!! thanks Drew
