The Mossberg Model 151K was made in 1950-1951. The magazine is located in the butt stock and has a 15 round capacity. The barrel is 24” long, the OAL is 44” and it weighs in @ ~6 lbs. It has a walnut Monte-Carlo style stock with cheek piece and a Schnabel forend. This rifle is in very, very nice condition. The bore is excellent, sharp rifling, clean and bright. The bolt shows no wear. This rifle obviously fired very few rounds. It was pretty dirty inside and out so we took it down and cleaned it thoroughly inside and out. The wood was cleaned using Liquid Gold cleaner/polish and the walnut stock looks great (see photos) and has only a few usage bruises and mars, it shows very well. The LOP is 13 ¾”.The metal finish (blue) is 90%+, no rust, no corrosion. A Mossberg No. M4D 4 power scope (see photos) is attached. If you are a Mossberg collector this would make a very fine addition to a collection and if you are a shooter, this is a great .22 rifle. You seldom find an old Mossberg .22 rifle in this condition.

Attention Bidders: A word about our auctions………………we do not disclose our Reserve on a “RESERVE AUCTION.” The reason is simple, disclosing the Reserve defeats e purpose of the Reserve auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale,” for the bidder not an auction, much like a Basic Auction on Auction Arms where the minimum selling price is listed for all bidders to see. We prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 40% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In the Reserve auction you are not necessarily bidding to hit the reserve but to be the high bidder. That is when the Haggle begins. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process click on: Help & Info Often the Reserve is the price the Seller would like to get but is not necessarily the minimum price the Seller may be willing to accept. We hope this explains why we don’t disclose.
*** SAFETY NOTICE : Buyer is solely responsible for determining that a used gun is safe to shoot. The firearms offered have not been test fired. Whether purchased here or somewhere else we urge every buyer to have any used firearm they purchase inspected by a qualified gunsmith before firing.
