Gamble pays off
 
My 2 M44 incompletes came today and what a deal. The only thing missing from one is the rear sight apeture and the other one is missing the rear sight apeture and the plastic fire, safe labels. This is a great deal.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that mine is as "complete" as yours. I hope to see it this week.

There have been some VERY nice Incompletes come out lately.... I think I may need to put in another order for one and some ammo.... I really wish I could get one with a rear sight... lol

I don't see them listed in the e-store. How would I order one? Thanks,

They pulled all rifles out of the estore. Even the category is gone. Just use the standard paper form as always.

Hello Guys

This is my first post here


I'm sending in my paperwork tomorrow for the Mossberg 44

Here's why ::
My Grandpa had one in Michigan where I grew up in the '60's
It was the first gun I ever shot
He taught me how to shoot with that rifle !!!
I can remember him shooting walnuts off a tree in the woods and thinking " I want be that good someday !!!
Grandpa was my Hero
Then when he passed away the rest of the family wanted me to have the Rifle
I remember unzipping that old soft case and it smelled like ...Well like Grandpa

Well .. I never got a chance to shoot It ... It was stolen out of a wooden and glass show cabinet I had ...( Before I got a gun Safe ) in a home robbery.
They broke in thru a window and only took all the wifes rings and things and broke open my gun cabinet
I.ve Always wanted to replace that rifle
Nows my chance

True story Guys
Thanks for reading ......... The New Guy

Any of these drilled and tapped for a scope?
The one I got at the south store on the 25th was drilled and tapped for scope and almost 100% except for rear site. Had swivels, safety buttons.

Awesome stock and bluing.

IIRC, some have been.

FWIW, local gunsmith charges $12.50/hole x 2 for the Havlin mount.

Just got mine. Awsome bluing. Except bolt handle. No biggy there. Stock has some wear. But has trigger guard. But no rear site. For $65 dollars. I couldn't be happier. All stock swivles are there and the red fire button is missing. But it looks nice.
