Here is a nice Western Field Model M72. Chambered in 30-30 Winchester. The M72's were manufactured by Mossberg as a model 472 Carbine from 1972 till 1976. These Lever Action M72's have a 20 inch barrel with a full length magazine tube. Hard wood pistol grip stock with rubber recoil pad and factory sling swivel. The plain hard wood forearm also has a sling swivel which is attached to the front barrel band. It has adjustable open sights and the top of the receiver is factory drilled and tapped for a scope mount.
This M72 is in very nice condition. The bluing on the barrel, mag tube, receiver and lever is still nice and dark with very little fading. The barrel's bore is very clean and shiny, no rust or pitting is present. The receiver has a very small spot where it has a little pitting. And the lever appears to have a slight discoloration in a couple of spots. Stocks are very clean and have retained most of it’s factory finish luster. There are a couple of small light scratches and handling marks here and there. Mechanically this M72 is in excellent condition and the action is very smooth. Ser.#1176079 / Stk.#19502
More White Tail Deer have been harvested with this style rifle and ammo (Lever Action / 30-30 Win) combinations then all other’s. This will make a great field piece as is. Or with the addition of a good scope this carbine would be capable of 150 yard shots with no problem.
