Mossberg 42M (b) “Varmint Special”

Offered for your purchasing consideration is a Mossberg Model 42M (b) .22 caliber rifle which has been re-born from its’ original factory configuration to one that saved it from being sold as parts due to previous misguided “bubbarazation” attempts.

The original S-101 and S107 sight mounting holes on the barrel have been professionally filled and machined in a manner that did not compromise the integrity of the barrel by using excessive heat. The No.4 receiver sight holes have been filled with the proper filler screws.

The barrel and stock have been very nicely refinished and a side mount scope rail that is designed to accept the Weaver style scope rings has been installed utilizing the original factory drilled and tapped holes on the receiver. A Japanese Tasco World Class 2.5X10X44m/m scope, using Tasco rings, has been mounted onto this scope rail.

The scope is NOS (New Old Stock). I have used its’ twin on a Chinese JW-15A for over 20 years and it is one of the best scopes in its’ category for clarity, brightness, and accuracy that I have ever encountered. From my experience, the Tasco Japanese manufactured optics are hands down better than the Chinese manufactured ones.
