While the stable isn’t large, Mossberg now has promising entries in a few notable categories, all of them priced to make buyers take a hard look.Leading the charge is the bolt-action Patriot (read the full review here), a rifle whose classic good looks, functionality and solid workmanship are commanding as much attention as its affordability.You rarely see an example today with the front sight cover as the little locking tabs were prone to fail after repeated removal/installation.The stocks were nearly all Beech stained with walnut stain and finished with raw But for home repair purposes (the reason you are probably reading this) the preservative qualities of linseed oil are our focus.You have no obligation to purchase the product once you know the price. Shouting is not necessary, appreciated and violates Community Rule No. The Mossberg Model 142K was made in the period 1953-1957. Retail value for a gun in good or better condition would range from 5 to 0 depending on mechanical and bore condition and remaining original wood and metal finish.Patriot sales have been hot throughout 2015, especially a combo offering that includes a mounted Vortex scope, and, somewhat surprisingly in this day and age, a walnut-stocked selection. Another turnbolt, the MVP, can be readily modified for all sorts of tactical and hunting specialization, while the Model 464 is a lever-action so faithful to the form it makes one want to saddle up.1965-1981: Private-Label Economics Fifty years ago Mossberg entered the center-fire business at the urging of retail giant Montgomery Ward, whose private-label Western Field line largely consisted of Mossberg-made .22s and smoothbores.
But even though millions of Americans have enjoyed plinking, hunting and competing with the ubiquitous Mossberg rimfires, that’s hardly the case with center-fire rifles from this 96-year-old manufacturer that also dominates in shotgun sales.The S-122 front sight is very hard to find especially with the little brass insert intact. I win $$ all the time shooting 5 empty shotgun shells in a race at 50 yrds. I steal their lunch money every time with my "little old .22".I installed a Lyman 17A until I can find an original sight. Let\'s talk about this \'stealth\' product most people will never use alone, but we all depend on every day! The actual boiling of some oils changes their drying characteristics, true.With linseed oil, though, it is the addition of certain solvents that causes linseed oil to dry more quickly, acting as if it were boiled.

I bought two of them in the last week they were available. It shoots about six inches high at 50 yards with the stock front post. I would like to put a taller front sight on it to bring the point of impact down.
