Mossberg 4x4 Bolt Action Rifle Review

O.F. Mossberg and Sons, or simply Mossberg for short, is perhaps best known for their line of shotguns. The Mossberg 500 pump action shotgun, and shotguns derived from the 500, have reliably served hunters and the military since the 1960's. However Mossberg is more than just shotguns and in recent years has moved aggressively into the bolt action centerfire rifle market. For this review we will be taking a look at the 4x4 bolt-action rifle.

The Mossberg 4x4 is offered in a variety of configurations, from basic synthetic stocks to traditional walnut stocks, to sculpted gray laminated wood stocks. The 4x4 also comes in scoped combo guns as well as those without a scope. The 4x4 is offered in a variety of cartridges such as 22-250 Rem, 243 Winchester, 7mm-08 Rem, 308 Win, 25-06 Rem, 270 Win, 30-06 Springfield, 7mm Rem Mag, 300 Win Mag, and 338 Win Mag. Some of the most recent 4x4 variations are also offered in the new Winchester Short Magnums such as 270 WSM, 7mm WSM, and 300 WSM.


Mossberg 4x4 Bolt Action Rifle with Lightning Bolt Action Adjustable Trigger System

Our review model is Mossberg model number #27573 which is a black synthetic stock with a Marinecote finish. While each model will vary based on the stock and finish, all 4x4 models have some common features. Perhaps the most noticeable feature is what Mossberg calls the Lightning Bolt Action (LBA) trigger system. Our review trigger broke cleanly with little creep or overtravel, a nice bonus for an entry level rifle. The LBA trigger can also be user adjusted from 2 - 7 lbs. of pull. However to adjust the trigger requires removing the stock and adjusting the set screw on the front of the bolt.

Most all models of the 4x4 also include a detachable box magazine which can be removed from the rifle. The magazine itself is plastic and the housing a retaining clip is also plastic. While plastic is not often the most durable material, the addition of a box magazine is a useful feature for those that like to completely unload their rifle while packing or riding into a hunting location.


The 4x4 has a smooth feedramp into the chamber.

All Mossberg 4x4's also feature a free floating, button rifled fluted barrel, capped with a removable muzzlebrake. The fluting helps to make the rifle a bit lighter and can help with heat reduction during rapid fire practice sessions at the shooting range. The muzzlebrake is a nice addition as well for those that are recoil adverse. The muzzlebrake by definition makes the muzzle blast much louder (and more prone to damage hearing) however the reduction in felt recoil is significant. For those that are not interested in a muzzlebrake, Mossberg thoughtfully includes a thread saver that can be used in place of the muzzlebrake. Simply unscrew the muzzlebrake and screw on the thread saver to reduce muzzle blast. It's worth noting that you should check a muzzlebrake fr...
