    This is my favorite 22. It is a Mossberg 146 with the early T bolt in .22 S-L-LR. It has a Mossberg M4 scope and the original peep sights. The wood and blue are original and I would call it 95%. I have always loved the old Mossbergs and this one is my old stand by.

    If I do my part I can put a magazine full on a nickel at 40 yds. The 3/4" tube scope took some getting used to but it is a snap now.

    Very nice, I have a 1st cousin who owned one of those
    more years back than I care to admit but his had iron
    sights in lieu of the scope, he must have learned well
    using it since he went on to win some national F-Class
    matches, I'm borrowing the images to send to him to
    see if it jogs his memory.
