For sale is a Mossberg,model 142, this is the earlier T-Bolt handle model. Original front and rear sights, grooved receiver, with an ADCO red dot sight, that works fine but needs a battery. Adco has windage and elevation adjustment.
Gun is sound, wood has no cracks or gouges, only some minor finish blemishes. Buttplate is original and not cracked. Blue has some minor pin-prick rust that can be seen, but is hard to feel. Blue would rate at probably 95%, there is one spot, where the forend seats against the barrel when it is folded forward, that is bad, but is mostly covered by the forend.
Wood finish has scuffs here and there, and a rub from the rear swivel. No gouges or wood damage whatsoever, just finish scuffs.
The bore is mint.The trigger guard, however, is cracked at the front screw, where it goes under the edge of the steel plate that the clip inserts through.
The clip is the original Mossberg clip, and functions flawlessly.
Overall the gun is really nice for a gun of its age, most we se have been "rode hard and put away wet" but this gun is nice enough for your collection!
