Default Mossberg 44US- Now we're cooking!

Have a lovely old Mossy 44US- actually made in 1943. With the right ammo, this is MOST accurate 22 I have ever had. Bull barrel, lead lapped bore, CRISP trigger- Unfortunately, I should have had it 40 years ago before the ravages of time on my eyesight. At 50 meters, with the Lyman peepsight, that little bullseye just seems to get smaller and harder to see every day. Well, in today's mail, my package from Havlin Sales- the scope mount for that rifle. And rings. And sitting in the Jeep is a nice adjustable focus 3-9x40. Tommorrow that rifle is headed for my smith to drill, tap, and mount the scope. Saturday, I will be headed for the range with a brick of Match ammo, a fist full of targets, and my cleaning rod. If you don't hear from me no mo, I died happy.

HI Shooter.......

I used to have a 44US, but sold it some time back. I still have some historical info on the rifle that you're welcome to if you want it. Just send me your mailing address and I'll put the documentation in a manila envelope, and send it to you. That's how I got it, so I'm just passing it on.

Regards, Jay

They were some of the best shooting 22lr ever put out. Them and the Remington 521T were both top dog when they were used.

they just dont make 22's like they used to.

I need to get a few things from Havlin as well, but I'm seriously torn about scoping it (having it tapped) unless I can find a vintage scope and mount for the 44US.

Over the years I have sold or traded off some firearms that now I wish I had kept. One was the Mossberg 22 bolt action target rifle. But back in the 1950s I wonted a Anschutz 22 rifle so I had to sell something to get the Anny.

Southern6er- NICE 44 US! You might check the left side of receiver just ahead of the peep sight for 2 screws- the first year rifles were not drilled and tapped, later ones were- the mount from Havlin fits at about the 10 oclock position, and winds up ABOVE the bore- works nice. I wound up with a Bushnell 4-12x 40 on there- 5 rounds touching at 50 meters. Federal Champion Target Standard Velocity. Now, just WHERE is that groundhog that has been tearing up the greenbeans???

I like the finish of your M44US stock. May I ask what it is? I intend to refinish the same rifle I own.

Madder- these turn up on auctionarms.com and gunbroker.com rather frequently. If you do not have a C&R FFL, it will need to be shipped to a dealer in your state, so include dealer fees and shipping costs when you are bidding. Unfortunately CMP sold off the last of their complete rifles.
