Default C&R Mossberg's

Any caliber, any year.

Just got this 146b-a, and put a Bushnell 4x32 on it.
1948, looks like it was made last week.







This .22 weighs as much as my friend's Remington .308. Gotta love good raw materials.

Nice rifle. My brother has a 151M and really likes it. I prefer the bolt action though.

^^^^ Get a pic up, dude! Havn't seen a 151M yet.



The strikes outside of the shoot-n-see's were from dialing in. Once it hit "x" on the nose, I started shooting the pasties.

This is my Mossberg 44US from 1944. I only have pictures from when I bought it. Since then I've cleaned it thoroughly, refinished the stock in tung oil, put on a new peep sight, new hood on the front sight, new trigger guard, new fire/safe indicators, stripped some parts of rust (such as the buttplate which needed the rust stripped, trimming to match the wood, and repainting). When refinishing the stock my main goal was to remove the grime that had built up over the years and then to cover up the areas where the finish was worn through or scuffed. I left the dents and dings since they add character. It is truly a thing of beauty now. Perhaps I'll take some new pictures of it sometime. For now, enjoy the pictures from when I bought it.

I do wish it had been tapped for a scope but I'll do just fine with the irons

I have a 151MB

I don't enjoy shooting it as much as I expected and it's picky about ammo.

I'll probably be looking to trade/sell it soon. If it was one of the bolt actions I'd be much more likely to keep it.

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.

142k - interesting little bolt carbine...replaced front sight with a fiber optic
346k - 18 in the tube (25 if using shorts)...this bolt shoots everything...

Some of the old "boy's guns" and "2nd tier" .22s are pretty amazing. My rebuilt Mossburg 144 is an MOA shooter out to 50 yards. I've got a C&R and keep my eyes open when I'm in gunstores out-of-state. A $35 DROS is kind of a buzz-kill on a $100 rifle. Main thing I'm looking for these days are tube-fed bolt guns; not sure why but these simply "look right" to me.

My next gun is going to be a mossberg 46 or 146 depending on price. The ability to hold a box of shorts in the tube is pretty cool. Ok it's not a box but is a lot of bullets.

I had a 44US, but sold it and it was definitely the biggest regret I've had as far as selling firearms. I really liked that gun and it was ridiculously fun. I've been searching for a cool one to replace it and just picked this guy up.





Super low serial number. The wood is more rough than the last one, but the unit marking way makes up for that in my opinion. Need to take it out in the next couple days and see if it still runs. Very happy with this gun so far.

Beautiful, there is just nothing more American then Mom, Baseball, Apple Pie, and a .22 rifle. I have a Mossberg 44US, Mossberg 144 T-bolt, and a Mossberg 146B T-bolt and they are great. I sold a 151M-B not to long ago because as a semi-auto it went through ammo waaaaay fast ... accurate hell yeah but waaay fast. I also had to let go my other Mossberg 44US as I needed room for the 146B. I am still hunting high and low for a 144US and one day I will find one ... no matter how much I have to pay or trade for it, it will be mine ! Great little .22's and in my opinion no gun safe/closet/cabinet is complete without one.

My 146B I just picked up ... 30 short rds heck yeah, 20 LR rds heck yeah, CA legal .. for now

Got a 51K. It's not the most accurate .22 I have, far from it, but it's accurate enough, and it's not picky about ammo. I like the tubular mag in the stock.

Thanks to mievil for the heads up about this rifle. I was a little leary of the pics and the price but I was able to work a deal with the seller. So I finally own a Mossberg 144US and I couldn't be happier... a friend of mine said the barrel is as big as a small truck axle

Gunbroker pics ....

What the rifle cleaned up to using dish soap/bottled water, then mineral spirits. After which I gave it 4 coats of good wax and ...


Looking forward to shooting it along with it's older brother, the 44US, at the next range trip !
