Great find! I like the character and differences of retro 22's they certainly werent just kids rifles. Mossberg offered several and are fun to research. Have fun

With the current renewed interest in lever guns and as nostalgic as this generation seems to be, id love to see that return to production someday. I'd take one in 22, 25 and 303 hey i can dream :D

Re: I’m starting to favor Italian guns

Ive had that happen to a few uberti's and have always been able to smooth face out with diamond paper and keep them shooting. I suspect it has more to with with dry firing and mainspring pressure than the load since i was shooting black only in those days fyi. That 231 load sounds like a nice one.

Re: Why We Don't Have a .41 Keith

Id say the old police loading is pretty much a 41Keith, which does not kick as bad a the 44 fyi. 200gr at 1000fps should kick less than a hot loaded model 25 which is a lighter gun.
