According to my youtube research, this is a great rifle....but I cant find 22lr ammo anywhere!
I also came across a Mossberg 380 with the mag tube thru the rear of the stock....btw, it was a thumbhole stock....they wanted $140 for it....
What do u think?
Hell yeah! you can get that screw at Numrich's for a few dollars. very nice rifles and very accurate. i paid about $70 for mine at my LGS last year. it's about a 1980 or 1981 vintage. it was in rough shape appearance wise, but functioned perfectly. i cleaned her up, refinished the wood and metal work, bought a set of scope mounts and used a 3-9x40 scope i already had, and still have less than $100 in the rifle. shoots very accurately and is tons of fun to shoot.
yes get it. even if it needs minor repairs it's worth the asking price. and you can still get most any part needed for them through Numrich's.
