OK. I have to start this post with a question. Does anyone on here know how to remove drool from a keyboard?

Nice collection C3. Some beautiful examples of well made, yet inexpensive, rifles in those pictures.

Dr. M, just remember, scratches add character, and each one has a story to tell. My grandfather (dad's dad) bought a Remington 870 in the late 60s from the Western Auto in Westfield NY after talking the clerk into knocking $20 off the price due to a small scratch on the right side of the butt stock. He gave it to a friend's son while my dad was in the Corps as a thank you for helping out on the family from sewing to harvest. This deer season I went hunting with the current owner, the son's son, and he was carrying that old 870 with him while we were afield. i asked if it was the one I thought it was, and he handed it to me and pointed out that little scratch, along with a few that came from his dad using it. He said it will never be refinished. To him it is a reminder of the shotgun's history in both our families.

Cleaned up real nice. It was dirty dirty dirty when I got it.

The only flaws I found, inside and out, are these scratches by the front sight hood

And this side of the stock is a lil scratched up.

The trigger on this one is AWESOME
Yep thats a similar model to the obe i grew up shooting, except the bolt handle is different and it doesnt have the dust covet on the bolt, but same sights, same everything almost except the bolt handle.

I love the old mossbergs, accurate and made of wood and steel.

Thanks guys.

I finally got out to shoot them and man they shoot well. They shoot better than I do, thats for sure!

Had all 5 holes touching (looked like 3 holes) at 25 yards with the 44US, pretty dang close with the 146. At 50 yards it was about 1/2" group. Gotta try some different ammo and get used to using peep sights, which I had never used before.

I'm another old Mossberg lover and have several. You just can't beat the old Mossy .22s. Just recently re-finished the stock on my Mod. 46M(b) and it's a beauty. It's also the rifle that my dad taught me to shoot with when I was around 5 years old. It still puts every round within a dime at 25 yards.

C3Shooter,

Looked on their website the other night, but did not see or find anything. Sent them an e-mail request to get ahold of me if they have one.
Many thanks C3 for showing an interest in my search.

Awesome. I wish i had some history with one like that. I don't have any family guns. In fact, I'm probably going to end up buying my father HIS first gun, haha.

1-2-14 Havlin just got back with me, they don't have the tube magazine. She said for me to keep looking on eBay and gun broker at least once a week, that maybe I would get lucky. Boy would I like to shoot some 22 shorts out of this rifle other than doing it as a single shot. C3, if ya heard anything out there about this part, how about a shout back at me, with many thanks given now for the help. And Happy New Year to you!
