Mossberg 22 mod 40

I just found what been looking for for years now. The bolt for Mossberg mod 40 22. Went missing years ago when inlaws owned it. Dealt with Outback Gun Parts. Cost me little over $100 but now gun is complete and shoots. Want to work it over and maybe give it to grandson. Almost sent back and tossed the rest out because the whole things I hear sells for about $200 at best but just can't get myself to do that sort of thing. Outback Gun parts was only place came up with one.

In messing with the mod 40, found out peep sights need some work..only had 2 little hard rubber washers as adjusting nuts..I not like so figure find 2. Not happen.. been to every gun smith in area too..not make any such thread count nuts to fit....oh well..back to draw board.. might have to tack another small bolt to the round peep part and cut off the old threaded stud..

I love old guns I have a old winchester model 88 that some one cut down for a kid which is a shame because it was a early model with cut checkering.
I was hopeing to restock it and sell it at the time I just could not find a stock that was not 200 dollers
Or more then I found one at a show for 95 rollers when all was said and done I could have almost when and bought a compile at. One.
Now I am glad I did because it is a nice shooting gun and my son loves the gun.
Some time its not the value of the gun its what the gun mean to you I repaired my great grand fathers 22 it was missing the front sight and some other parts when I was done I got more into it then the gun is valued.
