It’s addicting they said....



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought the first one (46B) in April and the 640k and 144 soon followed. I met with a guy last weekend to purchase the 142A. He brought along the 151K to see if it was interested and I bought both because they were a great price.
They are all in good shape but I have not shot all of them yet. Some have dents/scratches and wear spots, but they are made to be used.
They are mostly complete, missing a sling mount or peep sight here and there, which will be replaced. I love the front sight on the 142A. I will keep my eye out for a t-bolt for the 144.
Anyway, here they are, top to bottom: 151K, 142A, 144, 46B, 640K

That is a nice collection to begin with. The Mossberg bite is on!

Yes very addicting, also great looking group.

Welcome aboard, don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Plenty of knowledgeable members here willing to help.

Just so you know, not all of the early 144's came with the T-bolt handles. But many of them were changed to the ball type because they were not comfortable for repetitive use.

Nice collection I still do not have a 144. For the price of the T Bolt I would keep as it is. Just my $.02

I am now thinking the round bolt on the 144 is probably original and it should stay that way. Thanks!

There are too many Mossberg models to collect. I don't have much room so now just focus on prewar models. Most of the letter models still elude me. I take pictures of some and just pass them on.

My hunting buddies each have bolt action 410s for partridge during deer season so I think I might look for one of those. Also may pick up a 44 US if I find one at a good price

Welcome Paid2fish

Last Mossy that was added to the collection was a 144LS. Was also thinking of adding a 'T Bolt', then decided not.



Not that there's anything wrong with a few 'T bolts' in the collection.

I can relate to that. I had quite a number years ago, but sold all but the martially marked (US, UK, and Canada) trainers.

Try as I could, I could never find a Model L single-shot lever gun. When I sold them most of the buyers were around my age an all said they had wanted one as a kid after seeing the ads in Boys Life magazine and now were getting it.

Yep, a dozen here, a dozen there and pretty soon they start to add up.......
And if you're anything like me you begin finding parts rifles to 'rescue as projects which leads to finding and buying parts lots to get some of the parts you need and pretty soon you have a pretty good stock of parts that you didn't need. And sometimes when you get enough of those for a certain model of rifle you then look for that model rifle for a rescue project.
IIRC I have at least 4 or 5 rescue projects I'm slowly completing including a pretty rare Spiegel M42B I got for free from a gunsmith friend who got it from a guy who brought some old rifles into his shop and gave them to him.
