    I have one on order and it is on the way. I have an odd question. I see the MMR does not have an ejector port dust cover installed. Can one be installed with after market parts. MidwayUSA emailed me and said it is possible the lower is not designed for a cover.

    Anyone know for sure?
    Thanks

    I talked to Joe and he asked one of the designers of the rifle and the answer is....Nope! No place to hang a cover.

    See...sometimes you just gotta go to the source.

    Now...we all know the right answer.

    Yep. And it only cost me $15.00. I realized I did not need the cover anyway. 2 years ago when I got the MVP I HAD planned to get the MMR. Knowing I would hate losing brass in the grass I got a Caldwell brass catcher to hang on the AR. It is made just for an AR. Then I changed my mind and got the MVP. The catcher does not work on the MVP but it will work just fine on the MMR.

    Now I have the port cover covered and also have the port covered...and did not know I had it all covered all along.

    BTW, the brass catcher was $15.00 also

    New MMR 101317.jpg Bud's notified me my FFL should have my new MMR by Friday. I will get it that day or the next. Can't wait.

    **Update: Got it today. 10/13/17. I will post some range pics when deer season is over. It starts in Iowa tomorrow. (10/14/17)

    Love the rifle. But I immediately replaced the trigger group. First time at the range/first 5 shot string went ok and accuracy was acceptable but on the second target I got 3 double taps and a triple. The new trigger group solved the problem for about $35.

    Now I have a question. Is the rail an actual Picatinny rail or a Weaver/Picatinny? I had a one piece mount and ring set ordered and they got here before the rifle. When the rifle arrived the supposed Picatinny mounts would not attach to the supposed Picatinny rail. The reviews all say Picatinny but, is this now just a generic label someone puts on a rail with slots?

    I found a set of rings in my junk box that worked with the rail but they are not tall enough. There are no gunshops close enough to me to try one on, so to speak. So, it looks like I have to ask and hope someone knows for sure.

    If I were a betting man, since the gun was new and you were having trouble with the disconnector catching the hammer, I would look to check to see if the disconnector spring may had been inadvertently installed upside down.

    I know you may think I'm crazy for suggesting it, but based on your first paragraph of your last reply, is why I mentioned it.

    Can anyone say if the float tube is proprietary to Mossberg, or made by an aftermarket. It looks like a "necked down" Hogue. I've put the Hogue float tube on a couple hunting rifle builds. But I do like this style Mossberg uses.
