I can hear my 117 year old Winchester model 1892 laughing from within the gun safe.... and it is at home 35 miles away from here!

You are the same guys who laughed at improvments over the Volcanic. Were dismayed when a shirt manufacturer bought them out. You knocked a forearm on the Henry. Cried when they added the King's Patent loading gate. Thought centerfire cartridges and smokeless powder were a fad. Were disgusted by a vertical bolt lock and high-pressure cartridges. Thought angle-eject was a perversion. Optics on a lever were sacrilage to you.

You are all old fuddy duddies but Mossberg and I, we are forward looking.

I wonder if you could buy the colapsable butstock as an option ? No guys Im serious, Ive got to start getting ready for Grand Kids, in the next several years. I love the 30 30 cartridge as a first Deer Rifle, and if I can adjust the buttstock thats a plus, then when the kids are done playing with it, I can return it to normal. Ohh, dont look at me that way, Im not gonna mount a flashlight on it.

With no flashlight on it, how will you see the hogs at night?

When's the first "space movie" this'll appear in?
As for buying the rear as an aftermarket product, I don't know what other guns it may fit than a Mossberg, but, knowing Mossberg the "replacement part" will not be available separately for many months.

Mossberg makes this same rifle in traditional wood and blued steel. I personally prefer the traditional model. If I was hunting in conditions like the people in the History Channel's program "Swamp People" I would want a composite stock and durable non rusting finish on the metal parts. For this kind of use it is too bad they don't make a gun like the old Remington Nylon rifles that came out in the 60's. I thought they had all the appeal of a day old roadkill, but they could take abuse that would leave a normal rifle a pile of rusting junk and still fire. I would hope the firearms world is big enough for all kinds of guns to be accepted.

Nope, not that thing. Not in my world anyway.

Looks like a great little hog or varmit gun to me, but seems to be missing the top rail for optics or night vision. Having a stock that you can adjust means being able to make the gun more compact when you need it to be or stretched out when you need it to be. A full draw length stock can be cumbersome in some stands and more difficult to use from some prone positions where a shorter stock would be more beneficial. It can be hard to hold a light in one hand and run a rilfe in the other when night hunting.

XS Sights had announced a tri-rail for the Marlin 1895 a few years ago, but it never made it to market and I was disappointed.
