Anyone own these guns?? I was thinking his and her's rifles for my anniversary next month. Plus I want a bolt action scout that takes common mags.

Thoughts??

I have a MVP Patrol in 223. Great little gun for the price. The bolt is a little sloppy but it runs fine. It shoots Norinco ball decently enough and has no problems with the harder primers. I did have a round of Tulammo (steel) get jammed once but it's been 100% other than that.

Havnt shot one personally but I have a couple friends in the states that have them. Apparently the 308 will use ar10 mags AND m14 mags. It uses two separate mag releases, one for each style. Ie if using an m14 mag the ar10 release just isnt used. No swapping parts, whichever mag you stick in determines which release is activated. Using m14 mags means you shoukd be able to use the elander AIA Enfield mags as well for ten rounders. My buddies both report surplus runs fine in both the 223 and the 308, but steel cased causes issues.
