model 142

When I was a kid, I had a bolt action Mossberg rifle with a forend that tipped bown and a receiver sight. I killed a lot of squirrels with that little gun, but it went to another owner long ago. I have searched gunbroker and other auction sites foe one, but to no avail. Does anyone here know where I might find one for sale?

Not many for sale that I see in Canada either. I have a 142A which is my favorite bolt action carbine. I am looking for a 142K also but have not found one yet.

The 142(bolt) and 152(auto) were the first one's available with the fold down forearms. For some reason the 142's don't pop up for sale as often as the 152. There are also later versions of them as well, scroll through the different models here starting with the 100 series rifles.

Keep a search on the gun auction sites and hit your local pawn shops and gun shows. You never know what you might find.

I ended up finding a 142A just over a year ago. All original with a hang tag and wood fold down stock. Just a cool old gun. Goes along nice with my 152 also wood fold down stock. Just something about the carbines look neat.

You don't see the 142K as often as the A. Heres one I picked up. I have 4 of the A models.

The top one is the exact one that I had, receiver sight and all.

They are very good rifles, mine tip the scales at just under 5 lbs scoped.

142K

I purchased a 142K last year. It has the original cotton sling still on it, which is the reason I got it. Shots great and is a pleasure to carry. But it is time to pass it on.
