Hurts to think how many of these may lie on the bottom of the Atlantic in sunken ships,AND how many the Brits may have scrapped or dumped into the ocean after the end of WWII.

Serial 3871, USP marked and serial on barrel only, receiver is flaming bomb marked, mossberg peeps, trapdoor butt, d/t receiver, modified front post.

Big discussion about this rifle a few years back and I think the rifle was shown in the mossberg newsletter.

Just paid $50 for 42462,it's on the way to me.
Serial number marked on receiver and barrel above stock band, but not sure about proof marks.
Appears to have British Crown stamped proof mark BUT doesn't appear to have any other British proof marks.
Will know more in a week or so after I receive it and will update proof marks etc.
Has the complete stock,front sling swivel & mount installed,correct front sight,mag floorplate & screw and large take down screw.
Missing the following parts,
trigger guard and screws.(on order from Vic Havlin)
rear swivel, swivel mount and mount screws.(5 sets ordered from Vic Havlin from when shipment of reproduction swivels come in,I need spares for a 151M,etc also).
S-104 peep sight & screws ( I have a spare).
trigger assembly( luckily I have a spare).
magazine (two back ordered from Vic Havlin)
The hardest parts to source look like the extractors and extractor springs,other wise the bolt is complete including the dust cover.
I'd appreciate it if someone has extras they can spare so I can put the rifle back complete,functional and to "as issued" condition.

unusual 42MB/

Recently aquired a decent 42MB from LSB. Added to my two dozen plus Mossbergs upon inspiration of article by Rick in NMCA News.

All checks out fine. SN 10255. But all the receiver and barrel markings are on wrong side of rifle. That is, instead of reading trademark etc, and USProperty from the left side, you have to read it from the opposite (right) side. For example the word Mossberg is read as usual except it begins from the breach toward the muzzle.

Anyone else ever seen this?

oops: No receiver sight, walnut wood, trapdoor without the door, swivels.

40448, I believe the stock is walnut, plastic butt plate, Parker Hale sights (front and rear) - missing front sight hood. US Property marked and British proofs. 1948 stamped on barrel. Threaded front of barrel with a cap that covers the threads. Rifle is in excellent condition (both bluing and stock).
