First Look: Mossberg MMR Hunter 7.62

by G&A Online Editors   |  April 21st, 2014 8

Mossberg is adding a .30-caliber offering to their MMR-series of rifles with the MMR Hunter 7.62.

Chambered for 7.62x51mm NATO, the rifle features a 20-inch free-float barrel with a 1:10 right-handed twist. The barrel is constructed of 4140 carbon alloy steel and uses a carbine length gas system under its aluminum tubular for end.

The bolt is manufactured from Carpenter 158 steel which is high pressure tested (HPT) and magnetic particle inspected (MPI). The bolt rides inside a flat-top upper receiver made from a 7075 T6 aluminum forging.

Lower parts include a 1.14-inch diameter receiver extension made from 6061 T6 aluminum, a fixed A2-style buttstock and a Stark Equipment Corp. pistol grip. Fire control parts include a standard single-stage trigger group with .154-inch diameter pins. The MMR Hunter 7.62 also comes with a 5-round detachable magazine.

The Mossberg MMR Hunter 7.62 comes to market in late summer 2014 with no confirmed MSRP at this time.

    Eh. They might sell a few. Should have been built with a gas piston.

    • Azgundealer

      Are you willing to pay upwards of $1600 for a gas piston? I’m sure that isn’t their market.

      • Matt Horvath

        Yes I would pay upwards of that for a good rifle. Although, it is a little ungainly, and calling it MMR? That’s the same name for the inoculation that many believe cause Autism when received. That’s a few major/minor things going against it from the start.

    If they would get rid of that UGLY handguard

    As much as I like the .308/7.62 it does cost three times that of the 5.56. Yes the gas piston is more expensive and worth every dollar. Every problem with the ARs can be traced back to the gas direct impingement system.

  • Michael

    What magazine does it use? 5 round Mossberg mags or Magpul 7.62 PMAGS?

  • charlie

    AR-15 rifles have been direct gas impingement for 50 years its very reliable. So much that our military has been relying on it for that long. I have the MMR tactical 5.56 and it has operated flawlessly. You will never find a brand new AR15 for 600 dollars thats bettrr then the MMR.

    Im curious why the 7.62 model MMR is not on the mossberg website
