Mossberg 144US Military Target 22 LR Rifle 144 US

The Mossberg 144US is one of many offerings from the famed company that proved its motto of “More Gun For the Money” in spades. It was (and is) capable of giving its Winchester and Marlin counterparts a lot of heat at the range and is a perfect balance of quality and economy. The military was very pleased with its wartime use of the 44US and since the post war 144US surpassed the wartime version in almost every way they continued to purchase them for competition (this is one such rifle as evidenced by the U.S. serial number on the receiver). Many feel the 144 series was the high water mark in match rifles produced by Mossberg and that’s saying quite a lot. It features a 27” bull barrel with globe front sight, cocking indicator, thumb safety with red and green indicator buttons, 7 shot detachable magazine, walnut target cheek piece stock with sling swivels and hand-stop rail. This example retains about 80% blue with scattered tiny rust spotting and some fading to brown patina mostly on the bottom metal while the bore is a perfect mirror with strong, sharp rifling and the stock is completely sound with scattered light to moderate handling marks and scratches. The rear sight is absent and the finger groove trigger guard has shrunk some. A fine old rifle that can give all of its contemporary’s and any of the new guys a run for the money at the range.
