It's a Mossberg. Go to www.havlin.com, they have a scope mount for it ans well as the disc for the peep sight. If the front peep sight is missing, you should be able to find one on e bay.

If you can't figure out why no old rifle should be nicely sporterized or bubba'd, then much like the nutered dog, you just don't get it.
Beautiful rifles can be made from new Savages or any number...

Understood. It may take longer and cost more, but I see why you want to do a build yourself.

Once done, find a nice Mossberg US44 model, $300.00 at the most, a great shooting piece of American...

10-22's are great rifles, the main problem with them is the cost to really get them to shoot. It's pretty easy to spend $800 to $1000. for a real tac driver.
I know, I have one and have spent a lot...

+1 on the Auto Match, it's about the best bulk. The Dyna Point is also very good. From there, a big difference in accuracy will be had with Wolf MT, about $4.50 a box of 50, but it sure shoots.
