I bought a Mossberg 464 30/30 several years ago. I think it was around $300. I believe it was their deluxe version as it has checkered furniture. If you look thru my posts, you'll see that I'm a big JM Marlin fan and prefer older rifles. Over the years, I've owned several Winchester 94s. Handy rifles, especially to carry in the woods. IMHO, the Mossberg 464 is a good rifle, similar feel to the 94 AE. It has been very accurate and hasn't given me any issues. No jams or FTFs. Quality on this rifle seems really good, fit and finish excellent. Granted, I haven't put a ton of rounds thru it. I bought it mainly to use on days that I didn't want to carry one of my older Marlins in the woods or brush. Do I like it better than one of my JM Marlins, HELL NO! Would I buy it again for the same price, hell yes.
