Possible Spiegel

Not 100% sure if mine is a Spiegel or not, as it was made prior to them marking the "S" prefix / suffix on the model number. However, it does have traits of the Spiegel guns, including the drilled & tapped barrel / receiver and the magazine compartment & trapdoor in the stock.

Anyways, here's some pics of my 42M in question. Sorry about the poor pics, I will get some better ones soon.

Would a Spiegel 46M necessarily have the loading port cutout? I have an early one with no other lettering than 46M, that has most of the other recognized attributes of a Spiegel, including the cheekpiece stock, drilled and tapped, with no.7 scope mount blocks, and the 3 other correct sights. It does not have a compartment in the buttstock, but that makes sense to me since it's a tube feed gun and not magazine fed.

If you are referring to the loading port under the fore stock then you have one of a small number of 46M rifles that were made without that loading port. In discussions I've had with a number of Mossberg enthusiasts the consensus seems to be that there was a batch of 46M's assembled with fore ends that were missing the port and were shipped without being noticed or that they were noticed and shipped anyway. I have two of them and I think I remember hearing of two more here on the forum. Most of the Spiegel 46M rifles do have the port.

The 46M should not have the trap in the butt.

Post some pictures!

The main takedown screw is the small style on this 46M. Does this indicate that it is a very early model? My other non-Spiegel 46M has the larger takedown screw. I'll get some pictures up this weekend.

Another one added to the pile, a W45B. This use to be a B46B, it was my second one that had the barrel altered with a dovetail cut into it. Picked up the W45B barrel on auction and you see the rest. The stock is correct and it does have a duck medallion on it.

Picked this S46M up recently. Didn't realize it was so collectible. Unfortunately, some idiot drilled and tapped it for the wrong scope mount (and drilled it WRONG - holes don't match the mount!). And most of the bluing is gone on the barrel.







I bought it to resell, but I'm not sure if I should have it refinished first... I'm thinking I should probably yank the scope and mount and just put setscrews into the holes on the receiver.

The sights seem to be all there, although one of the inserts for the safety is missing.

Oh, and I was warned not to shoot it... they were right. It's a SWEET shooter. I was ringing the gong 75 yards behind my deck with very little effort, and that is one seriously smooth bolt and trigger. I am tempted to keep it. (one of the perils of having an FFL!)

Posted this in the main forum thread but thought I would also include it in the Spiegel thread as well. My "new" 51M. looking to mount a Spiegel scope to it when I eventually find one but I have a nice No. 8 mount holding a lyman .22 Junior scope I will put on it to have fun with for the moment. I will add another few pics with the scope soon.

My 46M has no port either.
