Good news. I have won my second Mossberg in two years. Last year a model 500 20 ga slugster and this year a new 4x4 270 with scope. Which I will be be picking it up in a few days. Not sure if it is synthetic or walnut. I guess it doesn't matter because the ticket only cost $30.00. Hoping rifle opens soon in my part of NY state. It has always been shotgun only in our area. The surrounding counties are currently all approved for rifle. I have been told the paper work is in the capital to get us approved. Also, I have a couple of questions. Is the scope on the new Mossberg 4x4 of a high quality or will I have to upgrade the optics. Also I am concerned about the accuracy of the gun. If anyone out there can give me any input it would be appreciated.
