Mossberg 464 SPX

posted on November 5, 2012

Mossberg released its original model 464 lever-action rifle in early 2008, which—not coincidentally—wasn’t long after Winchester announced that it would no longer be manufacturing Model 94s in the U.S. The original 464 has a fair bit in common with the Model 94s, but the SPX is a different beast entirely—it's not a cowboy gun, and it's probably not for everyone.

The SPX is a lever-action gun that could either be taken into the field or pressed into service in a home-defense or disaster situation. It comes with a number of tactical amenities: a shorter barrel, an optional flash hider, a threaded barrel for sound suppressors, fiber-optic sights and a tri-rail fore-end.

The new look and feel may not appeal to everyone, but the 464 SPX is designed for a market that's gone increasingly tactical—and it comes with the exceptional reliability you'd expect from a Mossberg.
