  1. MagTech (CBC) 7022/ Mossberg Plinkster 702 - operating handle problem

    Rimfire Rifles
    Hello everyone (newbie here), I recently made the decision to purchase my first firearm and after some research decided to start with a .22 rifle. Over the past weekend I went to a gun show here in Colorado to find a used rifle in good condition in my price range - nothing fancy, just something...
  2. First Time Shooting

    Rimfire Rifles
    I bought a .22 plinkster 1.5 years ago never shot it. I want to take it the following weekend my question is should I clean the gun since its been sitting or is it okay to shoot?
  3. Mossberg Patriot Feeding Issue

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I bought a new Mossberg Patriot 30-06 the other day and oiled it and adjusted the trigger and sighted in the scope. I have put two boxes through it and still it has feeding issues. It is a double stack box magazine and every other round (right side) and always the last round on the right, the...
  4. Swapping calibers on a bolt action

    I have just started reloading and am starting to look into gunsmithing. I have very little experience and need some help. I want a bolt action chambered in 6.5 Grendel for use as something like a scout rifle. I like the Mossberg MVP platforms and they are cheap enough I can afford to tinker...
  5. Mossberg 590 Optics

    Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hey guys, and gals... I did a search for optics but came up dry so I figured I would just ask. I would like to purchase a good inexpensive sight for my mossberg 590 persuader. I see them rang from 30 dollars (tasco) to 1000 or higher... I don't really want to spend more than 100 on optics...
  6. My new Mossberg 464

    Leverguns and Their Cartridges (General)
    I just got my 464 yesterday and after years of wanting a lever action and the better part of 6 months obsessing about them I finally got to get out and put some lead to a target despite the 12+" of snow I had to trudge though every 3-5 shots while trying to get it sighted in - good thing I had...
  7. 243 or 308?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am going to buy a Mossberg 100atr from bass pro, but I can't decide if I want a 243 or 308 for decently long range shooting, probably max of 600-800 yards. I don't hand load and don't like to spend a lot on high end ammo, but I just want to know which round is best for shooting at least 2"...
  8. Mossberg 146B stock needed

    I acquired a Mossberg 146b in a load of misc. junk at an auction a while back. The stock has been butchered... someone cut the cheekpiece way back. The gun seems accurate but of course the balance sucks with no decent way to hold it. I am trying to find a new stock for this. Any suggestions as...
  9. In need of Mossberg 146b complete bolt...

    I graduated college a year ago and I bought a food truck to service food at local auctions. At these auctions there are always guns going up for sale - some complete, and some missing parts. I just started getting into shooting and hunting a year ago, so I thought it would be fun to by a cheep...
  10. Need rifle opinions

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    New poster here, BTW. I ran across an older model Mossberg Model 1500. On the barrel, its stamped "made by Howa." This rifle is chambered in 30-06. I can get a heck of a deal on the gun, but I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with this model from Mossberg. I'm not expecting much...
  11. Mossberg 500 mag tube

    Shotguns, Shotgunning, and Shotshell Reloading
    I have a mossberg 500 and want to make it into a tactical gun. I want to buy a new barrel for a longer mag tube, but I'm not sure if I can unscrew the original one out of the receiver. Can I do this?
  12. New Deer gun

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Im finally tired of my old Savage 243 and im trying to find a new bolt action rifle for under 400 bucks new. Im pritty set on the 7mm-08 cartrige and im not really interested in any used guns. Some guns ive considered are the Marlin XS7, Savage Axis and Mossberg ATR. Dose anybody have any...
  13. Mossberg MVP takes AR15 mags

    Black Rifles Anyone seen one of these yet? I like the idea but want to know how it works in the real world. I think they should do a light versions too. Perhaps a Scout version?
  14. Mossberg 702 Plinkster High-Capacity Mags

    Rimfire Rifles
    Greetings all. Was wondering if anyone knew where I could acquire a high-capacity magazine for a Mossberg 702 Plinkster (.22)? The only mags I have been able to find for it are factory 10rd. mags. When my son is plinking around, it's kind of a pain to reload every 2 mins. Thanks for the...
