Tango, you need to keep your bike in the garage, one of the little neighborhood ninjas mine take a shine to it.:D

Seriously though, nice lookin little shooter there.

A man can never have too many guns! You can always sleep in the garage!!! :D

Nice stick Tango. That is good looking, and well balanced rifle there. Are those the old school dial adjustable sights? Like they had for windage in WWII??

The Sight (mossberg S130 is one of the better sights they put out). It is click adjustable for windage and elevation. Even after about 45 years of life it still gives you nice loud positive click.

I can't wait to get it out the range and run some Eley black box threw it.

Nice rifle tango! Is the post lady hot?

I'm in the process of looking for a nice 144 as well. I got my 46M(b) awhile back and have had the 144 buzz for awhile.

Looks good and complete. Most of the time they are missing the peep, or sight hood, or magazine, or any number of other pieces.

If your triggerguard starts to shrink away from the stock, a hair dryer up close and some rubber tubing to tie it up tightly can meld it back in without getting it too hot.

Also, for giggles, a member at rimfirecentral makes aluminum trigger guards for these. Very nice looking when andonized or gunkoted black, and you can put your original away for safety.

Well, the bolt handle is interesting to say the least! :)

The "T" bolts can actually be a little more desirable on some of these models.

Friend has a 146BA with the T handle and he loves it.

After using one I don't care for the ergonomics but I sure do like how they look. I was going to take it to the range on veterans day but it effing rained all darn day and night here and is still raining. I think I need to start building an ark (Not for animals but for guns I need 2 of each well maybe 3 of each).

If it shoots as good as other 144's I have seen then it is going to be a joy to shoot......
