This is a Mossberg Model 152, semi-auto magazine fed carbine. The Model 152 was manufactured from 1948-1952. The gun has an 18" barrel which is stamped "22 LONG RIFLE ONLY". The bore is in good condition with crisp rifling. There is a Weaver B4 (El Paso) scope mounted on the receiver. The gun has a 7-shot removable magazine and a Monte Carlo stock that features a hinged, fold-down forend.
Blue is 85% or better. There are some small nicks and scratches on the barrel and receiver with a few spots of surface rust pitting. The scope has about 75-80% blue, however the optics are a bit cloudy. The round knurled eyepiece ring is marred from someone attempting to turn it with pliers and one of the scope mount screws is missing (see photos).
The Monte Carlo stock has some divots and scratches, but appears to have it's original finish and is overall in good condition for it's age. The hinged, fold-down forend folds up and down nicely (see photos). There are no cracks in the stock.
The gun has a military post front sight. The rear aperture sight is missing, although the bracket for the sight is still mounted on the receiver (see photos). The receiver is factory-drilled and tapped for a scope mount and as mentioned there is a Weaver B4 scope mounted on the gun. There are front and rear 1-1/4" factory-installed swivels on the left-side of the gun. There is no sling with the gun.
Overall this gun is in excellent condition mechanically and good in appearance. Serial #NONE. STK. #11267.
This Model 152 with it's hinged, fold-down stock and Weaver B4 scope would make a decent vintage squirrel gun. Even though the Weaver's optics are a bit cloudy, you should still be able to knock a few "bushy tails" down with this baby! Put a sling and some TLC into this carbine and it will be ready to take to the field. Don't miss out they don't make 'em like this anymore!
