    I just checked the 60 and a 572 side by side.This 60 holds 18 and is stamped Long Rifle only.The 572 holds 15 but accepts shorts,longs,and long rifle. I tend to forget I even own the 572.We never bonded
    I would think the tube and spring would be the only way to change capacity.The current version looks the same as mine and loads the same so there isn't much else that could limit it

    Anyone else get a Fathers Day Flyer from Cabela's? I think they have different capacities in different states. It would be interesting to hear from someone in another part of the US. CT just passed a 10 shot mag limit, but rimfires were exempt.

    N.Y. Is 7 rounds and rimfires are not exempted, But you are allowed to have a 10 round mag, you just can't put in more than 7 rounds :huh

    If you have a detachable magazine, I do not know if the tube magazines are excempted.

    I'd be more worried about even finding ammo once Obama signs on that silly UN weapons embargo bullshit. Right up his alley!

    Me and my boy Jax got a little range time in this weekend. He loves the new Nikon on his little CZ Scout.

    Purdy! Want to trade stocks? :evil Just took mine out today and got it on a bench rest. Sub 1" group at 50yds with Eley Club, same holes at 25. Not as much luck with the SK+ that my friends 82 prefers. Mine loved Federal Gold Medal that his shoots like cheap bulk. Best of luck figuring out which one yours likes to eat.

    Taking it to the range today with some junk ammoe I had laying around. I cleaned it last night. It is still very stiff. You can tell these have never been fired before. The only rust this one had was a small spot on the under side of the bolt. And yes, the stock cut.

    Any idea what wood this is? Too light to be Walnut, I suspect it is Maple.

    I recently put one of those M1-replica stocks on my 10/22. It's pretty cool...

    Mossberg's First 22 bolt action signal-shot, the "Premier single-shot .22 (1928-29) was mail ordered from the Taylor Fur Co. by Anthony Alos Mazac. It breaks down to fit into a trapper's back-pack. His son, Theodore Spangler Mazac, about ten, learned to shoot on this gun. My brothers, Ted and Tom found it wrapped in a gunny sack and hidden among the rubble in an old shed at the farm back in '76. Still shoots true for great-great grandson.

    Does that rifle have a serial number? I know that my much more recent (only 50 years old) model 144 does not. When we finally lose the registration battle, I wonder what provisions the gun control geniuses will have for that particular 'issue'?
    Never a fancy gun but I can't say that I honestly was held back by the accuracy of my Mossberg. Good on you for getting him started with iron sights!

    Having a few that do not have sn# I can tell you what I have been told...truth or not. They are antiques....made before the law changed after Kennedy was shot. It has been suggested to me that you unscrew the butt plate...or somewhere like that....and put your info in just incase it gets stolen. My old European guns all have numbers, some of the American do some don't....People that know a crap about them (that is not most cops, dealers, and just about anyone at a gun show) know the history behind them and know they never had a number, and can see it was not filed off or anything. Now if you have a gun that was once owned by a big bad guy, Bonnies gun comes to mind of Bonnie and Clyde, she ground the number off her gun....it had a new number issued IIRC....I think the same went for some of Whitmans guns....man I think...too early.

    Hi, Bruce.

    No Numbers. The two piece bolt held together by one screw show it to be of the first two years of manufacture. Even today, if one makes their own firearm, not for sale, it is not required to have a number.

    I was curious if Mossberg had used serial numbers in the earlier years and perhaps dropped it to keep costs low, apparently not the case. As best as I can recall my 144 was built/purchased in 1963 or 64, I wonder how many they made before they had to start numbering them.
    While many manufacturers did use serial numbers begining in the 1800s, they were not required in the US until passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968, even after that there are exceptions as noted. Although many 'head in the sand' people believe that registration will solve all kinds of 'problems' they have no idea how many million firearms have no serial number to register.
    My 'Wimbleton' gun was built on a single shot Mauser action with no number but then my P-38 was apparently assembled from parts at some point and has more that one (non matching) number so I guess that they 'average out'.
