Question

Does this firearm have enough power to take down a coyote?

Does a .22lr have enough power behind it to take down a coyote or should I look for a .223/.243, keep in mind I do not need it for bigger game and I would like to keep the fur.

I own both. Any round can bring down a yote IF the bullet is in right place. which can't happen all the time. Yes, a .22LR can bring one down but is NOT recommended. Way further ahead using the .223 or even the .243 with solid (FMJ) bullets. That will knock em down quick with little to no pelt damage. Too much chance of losing a wounded animal with the >22LR, just not enough zip.

It is my understanding that the stock and fore grip are made out of 1 piece of plastic, therefore you couldn't put a new stock or pistol grip on it. you can however you can mount thins to the rails on top of the receiver and on the "fore grip".

Since the Mossberg Tactical Rimfire Semiautomatic Rifle, item # Ik-291342 is a rimfire rifle and all of our after market tactical rifle accessories are made for the centerfire versions of the tactical rifles, we do not have any that would fit. It may be possible that there are other sources of accessories that make them for this rimfire semi-automatic rifle.

Every single rifle will be different and the best ammunition with one of the Mossberg Tactical Rimfire Semiautomatic Rifles may not work well with all of the Mossberg Tactical Rimfire Semiautomatic Rifles.
