If I remember right , Mossberg made a bolt action 3 shot 12ga

Yep, and they made other gauges as well, they first made a .410 bolt action shotgun in 1932 for $10, first bolt action shotgun in America and followed with other gauges in the following years.

MOSSBERG%20MODEL%20G%20SMALL.jpgSo the stage was set for the emergence of the bolt action shotgun as World War One ended: such guns had been shown to be practical, and there was a significant market segment waiting to be served. In 1919, the newly-created and highly innovative firm of Mossberg opened for business.

MOSSBERG%20MODEL%2080%20410%20COLOR%20smMossberg has always had a reputation for thinking outside the box, and for serving the entry-level sporting gun market with reasonably priced, dependable guns. It was perhaps inevitable that Mossberg would introduce the bolt action shotgun to America: and do so at a time of great economic turmoil.

Rather than adapt an existing action, Mossberg chose to design an entirely new gun, one that could be quickly produced at low cost. "A Single Shot bolt action to meet the increasing demand for a really good shotgun at a popular price," as their ad copy puts it, is an admirably succinct description of the first Mossberg bolt action shotgun, the Model G in the then-new chambering of .410 bore. It was introduced in 1932, became a success and was followed with new and improved versions in various gauges over the years.

Even though they hit the market at the depths of the Great Depression, tough times may actually have helped sales of these humble utility guns. Pump and autoloading shotguns were pricey and the supply of cheap doubles was drying up as Europe recovered from the war. Mossberg touted their bolt action shotguns as as durable, practical and useful, but at the same time quite inexpensive.

Mossberg made bolt action shotguns in popular gauges for many years, with their guns also selling not only under their own label, but under the house brands of Sears, Ward's, Western Auto, and lesser-known chains. Production of Mossberg bolt action shotguns continued in some form or other into the 21st Century. One of the latest descendants of the Model G is the Model 695, a specialized gun for turkey and deer hunting. An outstanding web page on Mossberg bolt action shotguns can be found here."

Duck with a .410? darn.

I broke the Spring Clip that holds in the Mag today. Sad Sad. Will Weld it and if no good will make up another. Simple L Spring with slots to hold the Mag.

I have a Mossberg 20ga 3 shot bolt and it has a vari choke on the muzzle ... even has a rear iron sight and front bead to allow it to be aimed like a rifle. Can and have shot anything from slugs to buckshot to 7 1/2 shot through the thing. Don't use it much anymore but it is a good shooter.
