Our Assessment: The New Haven line of guns was made by Mossberg as promotional models. This is a modern bolt action rifle in .30-06 Springfield that is missing its magazine floorplate, has erosion in its finish and numerous dings in the wood. It is only in about Fair condition, although it has a very shootable bore. Magazine floorplates go for about $25 at Numrich, but they are out right now. Still, if you could find one, the barrel and receiver could be cleaned up and covered with Duracoat or a similar coating, and you would be left with a functional bolt action rifle capable of taking any game animal in North America. Besides, everybody needs a winter project . . .
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred/sold in California.
