I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of a Mossberg 144 LSB that I glommed at a recent auction.

Auction pics (admittedly poor)

Description advised:
O F. Mossberg & Sons model 144LSB bolt action target rifle. 22LR cal. 27 1/2" bbl. SN 746555. Blued finish on metal, with several areas of light oxidation, front and rear peep sights, walnut stock shows various handling marks, leather sling, 1 magazine.

One thing that is puzzling..I have never seen a muzzle like this one is depicted in the pictures. Can anyone tell me what the part on the end of the muzzle is?

Thanks

do you know if it was ever sent over to England? that muzzle deal almost looks like it was used of attaching a silencer at one time.

Not sure, Que.

I was hoping that someone would recognize it as a common piece..muzzle cover, front sight protector, etc.

Last Christmas I bought a pair of unfired Mossberg 144LSB's for my sons.

All I can say is that they didn't have anything like that on their muzzles.

The knurled knob on the end appears to be a thread protector for some fairly course screws.

That is defiantly a suppressor threaded adapter
A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different, because I was important in the life of a child.
