I have the 144LS model full target rifle. No luck with Greg at Empire Gun Shop / Parts
For some reason, I thought mine was made the same year I was born; 1958. But you are right, that would make it a 146B-A, which it is not. Yes, a bolt for the B-A will work, they are identical to the 146B bolt.
I haven't called Greg yet, Still checking out local sources. I guess if he has one and can mail it out, it doesn't matter if he is local or not.
I have gotten parts from E-Gunparts in the past, but it looks like they are not refilling inventory for 146B parts. They say they no longer have a source for parts.
This little rifle is so friggen accurate, I hate to have to retire it. I taught my wife how to shoot with this one, and will use it to show my 7 year old son how to shoot. I haven't let her try the Remington 760 30-06 yet
She holds it and says it's just as light as the Mossberg .22, so why can't she try it? Keep in mind, she's 60" tall on a good day, and around 100lbs (or used to be), so you know where she'll be sitten after she pulls the trigger.
I gotta live with her, so I'm not gonna let that happen.
