I have a Mossberg 30-30 lever action that i found out was made in 1972 and would like to find more information about it. One thing is that it will not load a "modern" 30-30 round, they jam on the bottom of the feed ramp. is there a way to fix this or is the rifle mainly a wall hanger now?

I have no friends and no one would miss me if i was gone from this earth.

the mossbergs used a sheet metal floor plate that gets bent easily and is not repairable but it can be replaced.this is a job for a gunsmith not for the home tinkerer since the main spring is a nightmare to get back in.
