My favorite Mossberg feature ever?



Log in to see fewer ads
Definitely the "controlled round feed" bolt (if that's the right term for it) that the 46 and 346 (and perhaps others as well) have. Doesn't work the same way CRF does on a Mauser-type action, but this is the best feed mechanism I've found in any tube-fed bolt-action .22.

Here's a quick video I made today in an attempt to illustrate this for other people.

Sorry it isn't super great, it's really hard to hold a rifle and work the bolt while trying to record a video, all with only two hands.

I think my perfect .22 rifle would involve this Mossberg feed mechanism, the Remington 580 series bolt, the Marlin 881 pattern magazine tube and walnut stock, and top it all off with some nice aperture sights for hunting.

Funny . I just got thru sorting the loading cycle out on it's predecessor , a 46 (no letter ).At least I hope I'm thru . Seems the lifter is HIGHLY dependent on the extractor tension ?????? Finicky , funky and boy did they learn a lot with the master action.

Great video Gripen. This cycle is very interesting but no more so than the Remington 34/341 models. Old is good at least in guns.

I like the way the 51M's load from the butt-stock. You pull the bolt back, and the shell "shoots" from the magazine into the chamber.

What are the early Remington actions like? I've never come across a 34 or 341, the oldest I've got any experience with is the 512.

Interesting video, I was not familiar with this action, thanks. I agree that the way it loads is probably the best for not damaging the bullet as it enters the chamber, very little chance of the chamber edge marring the bullet or even shaving off some lead which happens on some guns that load at an angle. That works the same way as the Stevens Visible Loader introduced 1907 and the Stevens No 65 & No 66 bolt actions introduced 1928. I assume the Mossberg has a swiveling end on the magazine follower which will eject the last case. The Stevens Visible Loader and the No 65 did not eject the last round, on the Visible Loader it was easy to get at, on the No 65 it was not at all easy to do, a swiveling magazine end to eject the last round was introduced with the No 66 in 1929. The Noble pump and lever action 22's used the same type straight in loading & ejecting.

Well Gripen the Remington has a mechanical mechanism that lifts the shell like an elevator into alignment with the chamber so that the bolt can push it home. These early gun designers had some interesting ideas. I love all of these old guns regardless of brand.

Great video Gripen. Tnx. Not sure I have a favorite Mossberg "feature". I do know I love my 46B(b) Close second to my old CZ513 "Basic/Farmer" as my favorite rimfire.
