Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Mossberg M44

#1 Post by echo1 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:08 pm

Hi Fellas,

Post upping,

My first rifle was a surplus Mossberg 44US U.S. Property marked. My pops bought it at the base surplus shed for 5 bucks in '60. I learned to shoot accurately with that bad boy. When I went to qualify at the hunter safety program, the instructor watched me load a single round, place it in the X's center, clear the rifle and set on the bench. He said that's enough. Like many other here, I let that one get away. PAX

I do have pink flamingos in my front yard, but instead of a chrome bowling ball it's blue.

BTW, there is a indoor range that opened up in Parma a few months ago.

There are a number of these rifles on Gunbarker.com now, some with absurd prices. The ones that are attracting bids are selling for $350 to $400-ish.
Frequently wrong, never in doubt.

I found a 1944 production Mossberg 44US (with US Property markings) in my LGS that had come from the Alabama CMP (still had the shipping box). I bought it and shot it yesterday for the first time. It is a tack driver!

I listened to you guys and got a 44US, not a 44US a,b,c or d (commercial versions). CMP is out and GunBroker doesn't have one under $300 in decent shape, so I checked out Rimfire central and got one there for a respectable price in decent condition. The work Mossberg did on the rifling back in the 1940's with lapped rifling is well worth the new appreciated prices. BTW, most of the stuff on Rimfire Central is pricy and aimed at the upper end of the match shooting market, but I did get lucky and found a plain Jane US property model under GunBroker asking and bidding prices.

I hope to go out and plink away with those peep sights when the weather improves.

Best Regards,

Mark
