Found a minty Mossberg 46M at a local shop. I dont usually frequent this particular establishment, because its out of the way and they have always had a reputation for high prices, but I was in the neighborhood and I said "Why not?" Needed just a little cleanup, but overall amazing condition. The price was so reasonable, even the clerk did a double-take and had to ask his boss if the sticker was correct. I guess they didnt have much into it, or they figured nobody still wanted these guns, but $215 OTD and it was all mine- winning! Aside from the great condition, the really amazing thing about this specimen is its completeness. Ive had many old Mossys over the years, including a few "M" models, but never had one which wasnt missing some of the small bits. Here you see the oft-lost red and green plastic safety indicators. The front sight assembly is complete and undamaged, including the (usually missing) shroud, and (usually broken) flip-up spring-loaded multiple posts. This is the FIRST Mossberg Ive had which included the original- and way overengineered- QD sling swivels. They use a teeny-tiny spring-loaded pin to secure them to the special mounts. Lose them, and you are scroooood! Even the bolt dust cover is still in place! Im pretty stoked to add this classic time-travelling bolt gun to my rimfire battery!
