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]
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
