    464 Owners' Impressions

    I'm interested in what owners of the Mossberg 464 levergun think of the one they own. Give me your impressions of the gun so far if you folks would be so kind. Thanks ahead of time for any responses.

    I like mine. It shoots pretty good and is not picky on ammo. The only problem that I have had with it is that the action used to jam up pretty good but that has gone away the more I sprayed it down with wd40 and the more that ive shot it. The fit and finish has been pretty good. Im just using the opensites now but have bought and used 2 wichester 94 front mounts to mount a scope. I also have bought truglo sights and a sling mounting kit for it but have yet to get them installed. I like the idea of being able to adjust the rear sights with a small screw driver.phone 186.jpg The scope I had on it is a Redfield 2-7 which is now on my marlin 1895. It didn't seem quit right having a scope on it.

    I love the one my wife has. The fit and finish is better than the new Marlins. Zero issues so far and very accurate. Her rifle is the Davidsons brush gun 464.

    They make one in .45-70 I will order. I will never own another .30-30
    I am borrowing this from some one else is saw on here "the .45-70 Government is the only Government I need"
    There is no such thing as to many .45-70's, 1911's or ar 15's. "GOD created man and Samuel Colt made them equal"

    I own so many 30-30's now, that I have no reason to buy another one. I also have 45-70's and all of them are Marlins with 22" barrels. A stainless model might interest me, but I won't buy a Marlin.

    I would consider a Henry because every one I held in my hands had an excellent fit and finish. They have had some feeding problems with Hornady ammunition, and the only model they offer is the H010. That rifle has a short barrel and a blued finish. Nice looking rifle, but not really something I want to own.

    I've enjoyed mine. Buttery smooth action, pretty accurate, carries nice. I sometimes will get pinched by the lever when quick cycling and I'm not real crazy about the blue wear mark on the top of the bolt.20150225_144559.jpg 20150225_144623.jpg

    I have one and it has its ups and downs. The price is right. Its lighter weight than a Marlin and looks more like a Winchester. Mine likes 170 grain factory and the Hornady 140 FTX. The lever safety does tend to pinch on occasion. It had another tang safety which I feel is better than the cross bolts on Marlins. Came with a screw in hammer extension which broke off, but a standard one like on my 22 mag Henry would work. Shoots very well out of the box. No feeding issues if the lever is worked the way it should be. Not drilled and tapped for a Williams or Lyman Receiver sight But Skinner does make a sight for it. It has rifling similar to Micro Groove. I have mine scoped and set up for the Hornady FTX but have not had a chance to take it out after deer yet. I like it as I kind of prefer the Winchester 94 feel over the Marlin but this can be scoped like the old Winchester angle eject. Trigger pull is kind of unusual but Ok if one shoot it a bit. All in all an OK rifle. No problems like some had with the Remlins.

    ..... I bought one online and sent to a FFL dealer near me - after i inspected it I took it home. Its a basic model , my intensions were to use it for deer hunting -30/30 - second time out I harvested a 7pt with one shot open sights at 30 yds -dropped where he stood - it was under $400 with the $37.50 FFL fee . Really can't ***** too much about it - its not a Marlin - its the same design as a Winchester action - in my opinion a weaker action no matter who builds it compared to a Marlin action . Im very happy with it especially the price .
