Western Field 36D that he resurrected from the grave.  he actually had to take 2 guns that were parts guns to get one.  he bead blasted and polished all the metal and had it reblued.  Completely stripped and sanded down the stock and refinished.  Looks and shoots like a brand new gun now.  The 142 must have come from behind a barn door when he purchased it for $50.00, the barrel was completely full of dirt as was the scope.   The stock had turned black looking and was cracked.  The barrel was rusty but had no pits.  After many hours of work it is again a great working Mossy. Nice job on both rifles!

Steve's Model 46 with a "FULL" beavertail stock, catalog and other samples I have seen are "SEMI" beavertail, anyone seen one like this before?  Pretty sweet!

Submitted by Harry C


Harry's M46. He purchased this rifle at a local gun shop for $90! "It looked like she had not been cleaned in 30 years but everything was there. After a good strip and clean I have to say this is one of the best shooters I have ever owned!"  I'll say looks like a good deal to me!

The Holy Grail of Brownies, NIB!

Here's the poop on the recently received Brownie. It appears it MAY not have actually been unfired. EXTREMELY hard to tell. I scrubbed the bores out and they're as shiny as any new gun you'd want to see. The firing pin has very sharp edges and there are no "dings" in the flat between the chambers to indicate it has been dry-fired.  Opening the action it is VERY tight - exactly like a NEW gun would be. There are no marks of any kind, stains, wear, or signs of rust anyplace on the finish. The bluing is 100%. Even the Extractor Rod's condition indicates it has never been used.  If you look really close, a couple of the screw slots show signs they've been removed. This may have been strictly out of curiosity rather than to repair or replace. The rather normal (unfortunately) burring of sharp edges around the side plates does not exist on this gun. All edges are still knife-edge sharp.  The right side grip has a barely discernible crack from the bottom screw escutcheon. The screw slot is not buggered so that grip may have been removed then tightened too hard when replaced. I will replace it with one of my old original grips with no cracks. I intend to replace the even slightly marked screw slot pieces as well with original, perfect screws.  Serial number indicates it probably came from the next to last year of production, 29733. Viewed with a 10X jeweler's loupe, the rifling at the chamfer of the muzzles, shows up very sharply. You can't say that about many guns.  The old cardboard box is the biggest disappointment. A previous owner has used what looks like black electrical tape to hold it together. It is only around the outer sides of the top so I'm going to look into the possibility of delicately removing it and repair it properly.

Jim's B26M a Spiegel model made in 1941. It has a 23" barrel, the S-102 rear sight and the 101 front sight. It is drilled and tapped for the S-104 rear sight as well as 4 holes for the No7 scope as was common for the Spiegel guns. It does not have the two holes for a standard Mossberg scope mount. The stock has not been relieved for the S-104 sight. Weight is about 5 1/2 lbs. The sling swivels are not the quick detachable type.

Submitted by Brad


Wards Westernfield Model 38, cross references over to a Mossberg Model 21, this is an interesting rifle, it appears to have a Model 14 stock, whether the original owner changed it or this was factory from Mossberg I have no idea, front sight seems to be a No 1A reversed with the blade removed and a 17A mounted to it.  Very nice custom target rifle.  Anyone has a 1935 Wards Catalog, would like to see a photo of this rifle if it's available.

S45A was purchased by Displaced Hoosiers father sometime between 1937&1938, the rifle is stamped "S45A", the "S" may mean "Special", "Spiegel" or "Scope" anyone have an answer?  A 7C8 scope is mounted on the rifle, it was repaired by Gil Parsons of Parsons Scopes of Ross, Ohio.  The scope was rather cloudy and is now in pristine condition.  The rifle is in completely original condition and a sweet shooter, all swivels and sights are intact and complete.

It has the original 2X brass scope (nice and clear) and No. 8A scope mount as well as original No.4A micrometer adjustable aperture peep sight, Lyman globe sight (I also have the original S-141 rear sight and No.1A front blade sight).  The stock was really dirty but in excellent condition.  All I did was clean the gunk off and give it a coating of tung oil; submitted by Orvis.
