Back in the mid 90's, I field trialed with a guy that had a Mossberg O/U. Back then they were called "Pederson", made in Mossbergs custom shop. It was a nice looking gun and worked well. I'd suppose that any new ones will be from left over parts for now and probally much like the old "Pederson's". How much they asking anyway? Might be a good deal as they handled ok. Were not overly bulky as the old Marlin O/U was and felt 100% better in the hands.
Side note: Mosberg also made some "Pederson" rifles on the 800 action. Never seen one.
Don, the new Mossberg is called "SILVER RESERVE O/U" , and the MSRP is $634 .
This is from a test I read about this little O/U!
The Turkish invasion continues, with Mossberg now importing a modistly priced over/under that, like most of the other Turkish-made shotguns we've tested is solid, and functional.
This is about all one could ask for, in an O/U with a street price in the $500 range, but the SILVER RESERVE we tested was also pretty nice looking, with some engraveing, inhanced by gold overlay,and a hand checkered walnut stock.
Best of all, however, it proved to be a real shooter!
I don't think it will be the old Pederson,and looks more like the Italian VERONA, than any thing I've seen! [/i]
The record books, that are put out by Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young and where I live is Henry Kelsey they are a great way to research a state or a province for big game. This does take some time but the knowledge it gives you, can be very valuable. Not all hunters have their trophies recorded, as where I live after the Hanson Buck became the new world record typical Whitetail, we saw a flood of hunters and now that has happened, some hunters are shying away from the record books but...
