    As I've mentioned before, I have a small but growing contingent of older Mossberg .22 rifles, with an emphasis on the bolt actions. It all started with one of the CMP Mossberg M44US rifles and grew from there. I currently have 5 or 6 different models, ranging from your generic semi-auto Mossbergs (what is it? The 151K?), to some of the mannlicher stocked bolt action models and a like NIB Model 352K-C that was my uncle-in-law's gun (the kind with the fold-down foreend). Would love to get my hands on at least three particular models - any of the "T" bolt handle bolt actions, a British Lend-Lease Model 42MB, and the elusive Model L - in profile it looks like a lever action, bit it is actually a Martini-type falling block action. Vic Havlin of the NMCA had one for sale not long ago, but I didn't have the funds at the time.

    Basically, what it comes down to is that if anyone has any Mossberg .22 rifles gathering dust, I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands. Just keep me informed.

    Nah, don't think that was me - my last big Mossberg score was a model 46MB in 95-98% condition, complete with swivels, all sights and instruction manual. I'll have to post some pics of that one soon....:cool:

    That's the one good thing about Mossbergs - with the exception of a few models, they haven't achieved stratospheric prices yet....

    How about a 351K w/ Mossberg M4D 4x scope. Tell me something about this one if your can.

    I'll see what I can find out when I get home. Got Vic Havlin's book "Mossberg: More Gun for the Money" so I'll see what it says...

    Nice looking rifle though....

    Thanks RobC. I bought it in an estate sale with some others and just wondered what about it.

    LTS, I am thinking about it. Still undecided.

    BTW, It is in good condition, but the previous owner engraved his SSN on it and all his other guns.

    I hate people that do that, unless it`s hidden from view. Let me know if you would like to part with it. I am always a player for very nice old, clean, shootable .22 auto`s. Still po`ed that I missed the 151M and may not get over it. I WAS ROBBED!!!

    You`s close...that foldey downy thing hurts me. How`s about a 46...B-BT-C-M.....maybe a 51M. OH!...OH!!!!! what about a Colt Stagecoach. Maybe a H&R 755??? and I`ll be your best friend for an excellent example of a Stevens/Springfield model 85-S or a Winchester model 74 in .22 LR.

    I is a player, if you know the model letter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and they are quality piece`s 90% or better. Yea! I know there cheap ones and I have some $59.00 ones too. I just like those old funky .22 auto`s. Guess it`s from being a kid at heart and remembering all the different ones my friends had. It would have to be a 51M though and the 46 would have to be a M, B, A.....prefer (yea picky) B or A, either would make me happy...and the A could be a lefty too.....that I ain`t picky about. I would take a base 51, if you twist my arm (lightly) if it was all correct and original. MAKE ME HAPPY!!!!! please..........

    Got a Western Field 22 bolt made by Mossberg for my son coupla yrs ago. Nice clean gun, tack driver. The red 'F' button is missing under the safety is all.
    Is it worth anything?

    I have a Mossberg 342K in great condition, and I was wondering if somebody could tell me what it is worth ? It also has the flip down forearm.


    Thanks in advance

    Reply Fell into a great deal on an S-130 peep sight today !!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I just fell into one... I was in Indianapolis today and went into a pawn shop to kill a few minutes, and the owner was fiddleing with a Model 45. The rifle was rusted bad and he couldn't figure out how to make the S-130 peep sight swing around past the rusted scope that had been mounted on the rifle. I told him he would have to take off the scope to use the sight. His opinion was the scope would help sell the rifle faster so he asked me if I wanted the sight for $5. I
    shrugged and said I could probably find a use for it. Now, just the front and barrel sights, and I'll have two complete ones.

    Reply Speaking of Mossberg peep sights.... !!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Those steel balls are .0935" in diameter. I just happen to have some extras. I can't contribute a whole lot of knowledge to this forum, but I've gained several books full. In attempting to return the favors, I have enough of those steel balls to give eight of them away. The first eight people who send me their mailing address get'em. One each, and the first eight by time and date of the e-mail. I'm not in business, and no scam, spam, or like that. It's just silly to have to obtain a new sight for want of those bearings.

    Looking for more of Mossberg's FIRST gun, the Brownie. There are three known Variations, those I've got, but there could always be a FOURTH Variation show up. Maybe you've got that very gun stashed away somewhere?

    UPDATE! PLEASE NOTE: That elusive FOURTH Variation has been discovered and was named Variation #2.5, because its newly noted differences fall between the Variation #2 and Variation #3. It was only discovered very late in 2009. The easiest way to learn if you have one is to make sure the patent info on the right side is dated July 27 1920; and that there is NO alignment pin in the top center of the right sideplate; and NO serial number on bottom of the butt.

    Also will buy any Brownie marked PAT'D. JAN. 27, 1920 on right side of barrels - IF the price is reasonable. And, I'm always looking for any Brownie items like vintage ads (photo below), original boxes, original Instruction Manuals, etc.. FloridaFialaFan

    I've had my Mossberg 142-A since 1953 bought it new with a peep sight and scope on it for like $25.00, with adjustible trigger spring tension.She out shot many other 22s along the years and still can,not saying I am still capable but the rifle still is.

    ?? Is it a 42MB (US PROPERTY trainer) or a 42M(b) std non military stamped? It looks like it has a parker Hale aperture site on it. those were subsituted by the Brittiah for the original issue on many of the trainers.Is yours stamped UNITED STATES PROPERTY.? with the Britt proof marks? [​IMG] --JMJ-- ** See my post under the military post.I just put out $275.00 for this one a few months ago.

    :D If it's in good shape keep it that way they are getting some good prices for them in some parts of the country. I had to go to that price at a public auction. They bring a bit more than the std garden variety 42M b--JMJ--
