Mossberg model 46a-b



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked this up today.the bore is bright, wood good, action tight. My question is the front sight inserts don't lock straight up, they will lock left or right.is this normal?. I am also looking for a sling and one swivel.
Sorry it's a 46m- b

Wonder if the leaf spring under the sight posts is broken?
I hear it is rather common.

Great find! It should shoot extremely well! Take the sight apart and make certain the spring is intact as stated by the previous post. Lots of info out there for these sights just search RFC and you should be able to repair it.

If spring is broke,you can pick the post you want,then put something like a small piece of rubber under it,to keep it in place.
Springs are hard to find. Some here have made springs from banding material.

As far as they are sticking out, I donít think the spring is broke. Without a hood on it, the centering pin is easily knocked out of track. You can try centering them back up using a small pick before trying to disassemble it.

I figured it out, somehow the pin that holds the inserts was out of the little bumps that holds the pin centered. What a drag getting it apart but I got it

Great rifle XPerry. Congrats. I have the same rig; I've become partial to the ring.

I bought a Havelin mount for mine and put a Bushnell 3.5-10X36mm rimfire scope on it, but haven't had time to shoot it. Guess I better get moving, winters on the way..................

The pin is also a culprit on off center sights. Lots of help and info here. Glad you got it fixed. Should be a great shooter
