Question New guy and Mossberg 4X4

Hello Everyone,
I'm the new kid on the block, so forgive me if I put this on the wrong forum,
I'm certainly not new to hunting but I haven't had to buy a new deer rifle in quite a while.

I'm interested in the Mossberg 4X4 or the Marlin X7 series rifles. If some of you
experienced folks could share your knowledge, I'd appreciate it. Thank-you!

Thanks Hunt NH,
I appreciate the reply. I guess it'll just be me and you. I was hoping to gather info on either the Mossberg or Marlin.

Welcome to the forum from ANOTHER Texan!!

Sorry I can't help much with your request, I'm mainly a Savage and Remington fan.

Smile New guy and Mossberg 4X4

Thanks rdrader2000,
I appreciate the reply! I'm typically a Ruger and Remington guy. I've had lot's of health problems and had to sell ALL my guns. So since I'm now on fixed income
I've got to pick up something a little cheaper.

I see your from Central Texas, I sold my place on Lake Buchanan 4 yrs ago.
Have a great 4th!

Hello and welcome to the site Charlie. I'm not a big fan of Mossbergs but have one a 835 I believe, 3-1/2 12ga mag and sold a youth 20 ga 500. I hear you on the need to economize and I think the Mossberg fits that need pretty well. I think for similar money a used Rem wingmaster would fit your budget also. Good luck on the health issues! I didn't see the rifle part of the question my mistake, same feelings though. Find a good Rem 700 used.

Default Hi Mossberg 4x4 270 owner..

You have run into the problem of a bad scope. I would bet that this came with the Rifle as package. These packages add a scope for almost nothing because that is what they are worth, nothing. If you can pull together about 150 dollars you will be able to buy one that will last a lifetime. I really like the Redfield Revolutions, or the Nikons. There are better scopes available then these but you will get 90% of the quality for 33% of the price.

Karl
