    Seeking HELP in Identifying Mossberg 18.5" Bbl'd .308 Bolt Carbine ?

    OP I see you have done some research so just to add, my Rem 788 has an 18" barrel, my Moss 810A 30-06 & 800A .308 both have the 22" barrel. My 800CV 22-250 bull barrel is 24".

    Mossberg model 46 old model, need help on bolt disassembly

    I meant to get back to this sooner. I will use a bolt from a WWF31A (Model 40). In the picture you need to pull the knob out and insert a short split tube. I used a piece of and old shell case about the right size and cut to length, then slit to fit around the shaft. This takes the spring...

    Mossberg 26C(a) model information wanted

    "I would give Havlin a call. (636) 937-6401" Second place I went. They never heard of it. I have been giving Cheryl information on this one. This model has been lurking on my mind for over a year, maybe 2 now. I was surprised to see one surface here in Canada. I managed to snag it so now the...

    Mossberg 26C(a) model information wanted

    As the title says I am looking for information on this rare Mossberg model. The 26C(a) is not listed anywhere. I have one of three that I have heard of. Lots of information on 26C and 26B models but nothing so far on the 26C(a).

    no. 4 peep sight threads

    Funny thing is after posting here about the #4 peep I was at the range yesterday and was given a #4 parts sight. It was also missing the windage nut etc. I thought I may have the parts needed to make it useful but turns out it is now my 3rd #4 missing the windage nut. It was also missing other...

    Receiver sights were on 0.625" centers and used 10-32 screw size. The elevation and windage are both 8-50 tpi. 8-48 tap and die will work. thread for the aperture is 8-40

    Mossberg 395kb Stock Restoration

    That looks like a good job. Lots of the old shotguns seem to have cracked stocks. Had a model 200 that was repaired and fiberglassed. I didn't like the looks. Had a 395 that went to Ontario. Also a 185 went that way.

    Refinishing 395KB Stock

    I have never sealed the trigger inlet etc but if you want to seal it why not just use the same stain as on the rest of the stock. I don't like to sand too much as you lose some of the character. I have used a darker stain on the stocks to not show some of the dark spots as bad (mostly where...

    Mossberg 395kb

    I would not go with the dowels. The best results I have had is with 2P-10 glue. Sets quickly and is the strongest join I have used. As for the fiberglass - I had a Model 200 12 ga someone did that to and it was ugly. Finally sold it as a parts gun. Just a note: I did have a 395 and sold it to...

    Pictures please as I have never heard of this model until now. Mind you I am a rimfire guy.

    It can be fired very little but gun oil gets gummy after a few years. You may need to strip the bolt down and clean the firing pin. Not just gummy oil but very cold weather has similar effect. When living in northern Alberta and BC I would wipe the oil off if I was shooting in cold weather.
