    Anybody know if the MVP in 224 Valkyrie is based on the 223/5.56 or the 6.5/308 action? If the former I'm thinking about doing a caliber swap on my 5.56. Columbia river is making prefit barrels and I can get the bolt face opened up pretty cheap by a local smith for less than $400 total, if it's based on the smaller action instead of the bigger. The rifle is currently in a chassis and I'd like to not have to spend that money again.

    Thanks, been around a while, originally on the old MVP forum, but work and life got in the way for a few years and boy things have changed. My MVP was bought in 2012 and will get me to 600 (longest I have available for now) with no problem, but from what I hear past that it gets a little harder and past 1,000 forget it. I would have done 224 for my last AR build about 6 months ago, but the results people were getting were all over the place. I can get a pre fit from Columbia River, and If I can get a bolt I could change over for way less than the cost of a new build, and I can still use the chassis I have. When i comes down to it there's only so much money available and the more I spend on a rifle, the less there is for ammo.

    A gun is merely a club without ammo! :eek:
