I have an old Mossberg like you. I got it from a friend a few weeks ago for $140 to actually move to somebody else. The bluing is browned all over with plenty of dings in the metal with oiled stock. I mounted a bushnell banner 4-12 on a modified UTG base since there isnt a lot of dovetail on the receiver. Mine is a 340k and damn can it shoot, much better than a savage Mark II I should add. I put a cheek riser on which came from a savage 110 kit and put on a bipod and trigger shoe as well as a Beeman brake I had lying around. Not real pretty but its a shooter and dont think its going anywhere.
I think it looks like a Bubba Mosin Nagant
Hey all, I couldnt help myself I parted with it for a Ruger American rimfire.
Picked up this Tangfolio 225 about 12 years ago at a pawn shop for $60 bucks. Finish is almost gone, black plastic grip is ugly as H..., but the darn thing locks up tight and shoots straight. To this day, don't know why I bought it, maybe so I could enter it into this thread.
H&R 20ga Topper is my ugly gun that will never leave my ownership while I am alive. It works, is simple, and I have no fear of dinging it up out on a hunt. Sometimes it rides under the truck seat for months on end with just an occassional oiling. A box of bird, buck, and slug ammo always accompany it. I have taken rabbit, pheasant, and squirrel with it, and it is just a great utility piece.
My ugly gun is a Beretta PX4 Storm full size in 9 mm. It’s big and clunky looking but absolutely shoots everything fed into it without fail. I’ve thought about getting rid of it but it’s so reliable I just can’t part with it.
Yet another old ass mossberg. When I got this, it was trashed, rusted inside and out, rust in the barrel, stock reeked like cigarettes and had no finish left, missing parts, missing the magazine, no sights. I had an acquaintance cut and crown the barrel to 18", drill and tap it for a front sight, then I refinished the stock, installed a scope rail, scout scope, installed "scout" looking front sight from a different mossberg with a peep sight rear, and rattle canned the whole thing with high temp matte black.
Its a hell of a shooter and by far the most handy rimfire I own but it sure ain’t pretty
HI! Time for a little project. Kinda different than what most of us do here to preserve and use these old Mossy's. Back story: I have a Ruger Gunsite Scout, it's definitely my favorite rifle. Small. Super handy. Packs a decent punch being a .308, has great iron sights, a forward mounted...
