Mossberg and Sons Chuckster 22mag

Postby asmythe32 » Wed Mar 01, 2017 3:21 pm

I recently refinished an old mossberg and sons 22 mag. The gun had been in the corner of my parents garage and was pitted and had rust on the outside if the barrel. Being that it is just a plinker I didnt want to put a lot of money into it. Took it apart and sanded all the bluing off the barrel and receiver. Painted the barrel black and refinished the stock. Gun looks great and the bolt and trigger function as they should. My question is this. The gun has not been fired in a while. There is no obstructions in the barrel and I have cleaned the barrel as much as I can. I believe it is ok to shoot. Is there anything else I need to look for before shooting this gun? I still need to get a magazine for it but other than that everything looks like it should. Should I shoot it or take it somewhere to have it checked out?

Nice refinish, Id take it and shoot it and not worry one bit about the integrity of the steel
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason
