Mossberg Model 25A single-shot .22 rifle...

Does anyone know about the Mossberg Model 25A single-shot .22 rifle? I know they were manufactured 1936-1938. Were they well made rifles? How did they perform?

Thanks

Mossberg Model 25A single-shot .22 rifle

How is the condition? That link above is probably going to give you the most info on your rifle; It helped me tremendously in "learning" about my newly aquired Mossberg 34 bolt-action .22 rifle. These old mossbergs are listed in the gun blue-books at about $150-200 in excellent condition, So I take it they are not high value collector rifles, but you never know.
Mine seemed to shoot consistently low and right.... about 50 rounds. Then I took the bolt apart to clean it up well, and found my firing pin cracked. So until I fix that, I wont be able to sight it in to see what the rifles really capable of. But so far, I think I really like this rifle.... the simplicity in parts/ mechanism, and it has that old wooden stock cool-factor.
