    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.

    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......

    Tory If you look in the one photo you will see that I live in a town house. No garage :confused:

    We have had two bikes stolen My daughters then my son's. That is my sons new one with a 3/4" cable lock on it that goes all over the bike and the t 4x4 porch railing. My son's bike saidly was taken by my daughter on a 3 am ride 2 miles down the road to a CVS to get candy. She bought too much stuff and couldn't ride it back so she ditched it.

    I was just hackin on you partner.

    My sister in law did the same thing as your daughter, when she was a kid. I thought her grandma was going to break the switch wearing her little butt out.

    I've got a couple old .22s and they are pretty hard to beat.

    Sweeeeet mossy tango! Ive just got the M44US.
    Is the 144 is a little heavier barrel than the 44? Looks like it. and a grooved reciever for rings? Thats the first time I've seen the "T" handle. Thanks for posting!
    May have just added another rifle to the wish list! :D
    Great shooter's them mossys!!

    The 144 is an updated version of the m44 it is "NEWER". There is also other 1xx series mossbergs out there like the M146 which is an updated version of a model 46 (I have one of them too) it is in parts and getting redone.

    These new rimfires in my book don't even come close to fit and finish of the old rimfires.
