The Mossberg name is most often associated with field-proven value-priced shotguns; however, the company also offers an equally diverse lineup of economical center-fire rifles, some of which are built on the respected ATR action. The Night Train, evaluated here, is one such variant.
Mossberg 100 ATR Night Train .308 Winchester with Scope is a 5 shot rifle with fluted barrel, LBA Trigger, matte blue finish and comes complete with a 4-16x50mm variable scope with sun shade lens protectors. The Night Train's barrel is relatively lightweight; in fact, the sporter-contour barrel measures 1.175 inches immediately ahead of the locking nut, and it tapers to 0.660 inches before belling to the threaded portion. The muzzle brake, which is of the fish-gill style, extends the barrel by 2 inches, resulting in an overall length of 22 inches. The four-port, 3.770-inch-long brake seems like a bit much for a .308 Winchester chambered rifle, but there's little doubt that it helps attenuate recoil, as well as makes the rifle more visually appealing.
The Night Train comes with a pre-mounted 4-16x 50mm riflescope, but, due to the scope's oversize objective lens, the company had to improvise. Because the scope has to be mounted extra-high to prevent contact with the barrel, a solid cheek weld is virtually impossible. As such, Mossberg provides a Beartooth Products' neoprene cover, beneath which one of the provided foam inserts can be added for proper eye alignment with the scope. A small slit in the pad will be necessary to use the integral sling attachment point on the butt.
