152 vs 151?



Log in to see fewer ads
I am in love with my 151M(b). It has been what is responsible for bringing me back to RFC lately. My Savage and Ruger are jealous.
That said, I am now looking for a magazine fed version of this "Tuber" semi-auto.
Being now a little more educated on old Mossy's the 152K seems like a good choice.
Can I expect the same accuracy from a 152 or is the fact it is magazine fed something that may make it a different animal altogether?
Is there a "better" vintage, magazine fed, semi-auto, Mossberg I should be watching for?
Thanks

Better is relative...

Better is relative, depends on what you are looking for. Full size rifle or carbine There is the 250K which is a full size rifle and it is magazine fed. Kind of like a big brother to the 152's.
152's = 18 1/4" barrel, magazine fed
250 = 24" barrel, magazine fed. This model I believe is New Haven" branded.
151's = 20" barrel, tube fed. I've always thought of the 151's as a "mid-size" rifle.
Follow the link if you want pictures of a 250K or google "images of a Mossberg 250K".

Thank you Gents.

Well, I now have a 152 on the way... Thanks for the replies.
Little rough, but complete and the price was right.
This winters project.

Hope a mag...

Hope a magazine came with it as original 7 rounders are somewhat pricey, and the after market ones aren't that much better..
God Bless, Frank.

Yep mags, If it does or doesn't I have planned on buying a couple spares.
Cheapest I have seen are the Triple K 10 rnd mags on Brownells.

Arrived today.
MUCH better condition than I expected.
The "Patina" in the photos was much worse than real life. It looks like it has never been cleaned... EVER!
I bet with a good clean and oil, she would be a "shooter" but that is not the plan. I wanted a winter project to reblue, polish the internals, and refinish the stock with tru-oil...
Definitely a prime candidate
Thinking I should start a rebuild thread from "Day One".
