Break your lever gun in thoroughly, before you try doing that stuff!
Hey, I didn't realize that there were 3 generations of the 464 SPX. I have pictures of mine earlier in this feed. It is a first generation with the rails literally screwed to the side of a plastic forgrip. The second generation ditched the crappy forgrip for an all in one design with three small rail sections, similar to this but with the gen 1 buttstock. What is pictured here is a 3rd generation. It has a better looking buttstock. I prefer my crappy rails and rail covers.Canada had a gun show 2 months ago (Taccom) and Mossberg was kind enough to send a rep up to entertain us Canadians, I expressed my disappointment that they discontinued the 464/HS12 asked if they were any plans to resurrect the 464 model in the future (none at this time). I also wrote to Mossberg expressing my disappointment in the discontinuation but also that there was no advanced notice.
I am content that I was able to purchase a 464 before the discontinuation.
Not 4 sale.
Ruger took over the Marlin assets and are remarketing their lever-actions... We have a little Henry .22. Was malfunctioning a little last time at the range so it is in the queue for inspection maintenance eventually. It is NOT dirty at all...I've always kind of wanted a lever action rifle. For me it's a symbol of the old wild west cowboy days. It doesn't look like Mossberg has any viable options any more, and I know S&W just came out with their new 1854 lever action special, but I've been looking hard at Henry repeating rifles. One in 45-70 would round out the personal collection nicely. https://www.henryusa.com/rifles/all-weather-picatinny-rail-45-70/
But then I'd need a horse...and a saddle....and boots......
