Default C&R Mossbergs?

Just seeing what else there is out there as far as these things go. Fellow Calgunner sold me this 1948 Mossberg 146b-a and I slapped a 6-24x44 on it and did some work at 50 yd a couple of days ago. Not bad for a C&R.








Didn't even bother trying to hold a ruler up next to this grouping. That'll do, pig.

I love old Mossbergs, especially with that almost-pistol-grip style.

I in fact just made an offer on an old Mossberg 151 at a local shop that needs some TLC

I love old Mossbergs. They are very accurate. There is a great Mossberg forum over at RFC.

Very nice rifle. These old Mossbergs have a reputation for shooting well.

I bought my first Mossberg a few weeks ago, a 151m-b. It's picky about ammo but it's very very accurate. I enjoy shooting it.

Not bad for a C&R? Come on, old Mossbergs are known for their precision. Next time, try a few different types of "match grade" or high quality ammo. I'm betting it will do even better. My 42A and my 44US are both tack drivers. I'll take an old $200 Mossberg over a new $300 .22lr rifle any day.

I've had luck with the bulk Federal 36g and Blazer 40g ammo. What do you recommend?

Tried CCI mini mags through it and my groups opened up to about an inch and a half at 50!

Mossberg lead lapped their barrels in the 40s. Today, only custom shops still do that.

My 44US is a tack driver. I should have bought 100 of them.

Just got a new Simmons Whitetail Classic 6-20x50mm for this beast. It is now complete.

Still shoots like the first pics in the thread.

Total cost for the build:

Mossberg 146b-a: $200
Versipod bipod: $120
Simmons Whitetail 6-20x50mm: $120
Slap on beer koozie (for cheek weld! works great!): $free
total: $440
1/4" groupings at 50 yards: priceless.
