I have 2 ruger americans, both compacts and no mag problems on either of my rifles. They both function flawlessly and are very accurate. I looked at the mossberg mvp patrol, the price is what drove me away. Almost all the reviews claim good accuracy but small problems with the mag, extractors, and bolts are another reason I passed. Very happy with my americans, both are in 223.
