i just received a model from a neighbor after her husband passed away. i have never seen a shotgun with a bolt action like this model before. can you help my figure out when this shotgun was manufactured. and maybe the value of it It's a Mossberg Model 80 manufactured from 1933 to 1946. Worth about $40 if it is just in working condition, $135 if it is still in factory new condition. They also have a nasty habit of having cracks behind the bolt. This is not seen unless taken apart. This is a weakness in the manufacturing process. This shotgun should not fire any shotgun shell longer than 2 and 1/2 inches. Also no magnum rounds. This is a very weak action.

I can't find a listing for the Western Field Mod 15k. The Mod 15 is a Mossberg Mod 80, the 15A is a Mossberg 83, and the 150 is a Mossberg 183k but all of these are .410 bore, not 12 ga. Mossberg did make most of the different models sold by Western Field, so by looking through the different diagrams of appropriate Mossberg shotguns you may be able to identify the correct model. With that information, GUNPARTSCORP.com or other parts warehouses may be able to supply the correct firing pin.
