    This shotgun has been in my family since way back when. It was the first shotgun that I ever fired. It was lost for several years and not a single family member could remember anything about it at all------WELL about 5 years ago My uncle passed away and guess what we found in his closet out in Utah-----This was my Grandfathers---and my uncle left a not inside the case telling me to make sure and keep this in the family.

    I cant find out a lot about this weapon other then they made them up until about 1970. Its a cip fed colt action 4-10.

    My bro in law has one, but not nearly as nice. His sits in the garage as a "just in case" gun.

    I got a 1963 Gun Digest here, it says they sold for $39.95 new in '63, and that they were 5 1/2 pounds, and not a lot more, except that the wood was real walnut. They don't generate any collector interest, except maybe with the Mossberg Collectors Association. Bolt action shotguns were serviceable and inexpensive, but awkward to use, at least, if you needed a second shot. Heckuva rabbit and squirrel gun, though.

    That is the same type of gun I learned to hunt with and was the first gun I shot. It belonged to my grandfather and he passed it to my uncle. My uncle asked us to keep it till his son got old enuff to own it. My cousin died a few years ago and I have no idea where it is now.
