I tried to find this one on the Mossberg website, but couldn’t. I suppose it’s a distributor special? In any case, with the exception of my Marlin’s having blued steel and an 18” barrel, these seem very similar to it.

TAM, It's listed at Gallery of Guns, but it's out of stock. Not made by Mossberg, but altered by Davidson's?? Perhaps Mossberg catalogued them at one time. Davidson's website appears to be for dealers. I've posted it as well. Perhaps your son can access it. The only change I'd make to it would be to offer it in .35 Remington, which is a better brush gun caliber in my opinion. One more thing to note. It's not Mossberg 454, but rather a Model 464.

UPDATE: I contacted Mossberg and their rep said the Davidson Exclusive was manufactured for them. He stated there was a production run and an order but no info on the exact date, but they may be available again. I also noted that they make the 464 in .22 caliber and found them for about $330 at Tombstone guns. They may be a decent alternative to Marlin 39's, which are now only available from the custom shop and Henry's.

I bought a .22 Henry Lever Action Octogon Rifle about 2 weeks after I bought that Marlin (I posted about it here....), and it is a dandy. I love that little rifle. First, it is drop-dead beautiful. It is also accurate as heck for an iron-sighted rifle. I also own two other .22 rifles: a M&P15-22, and a cheap Savage 64 semiauto. I can state with absolute certainty that, if I had to pick just one of them to keep for the zombie apocalypse, I’d take the Henry over the S&W, capacity notwithstanding; and I’d take it over either of the other two rifles for mechanical reliability. And actually, the Henry’s magazine tube will hold either 16 rounds of .22 LR or 21 rounds of .22 short, compared to the S&W’s 23 rounds of .22 LR, so the capacity discrepancy isn’t THAT big of a difference. Everyone knows that from not too far away, you can still pop a zombie in the head with a .22 short and kill it.....as long as it penetrates the skull. If you shoot into the eye socket, you eliminate that problem. Since zombie eyes glow in the dark, they make easy targets at night, even with iron sights. Plus, the lever action Henry is mechanically quieter than either of the other two .22s.

It’s bonafide.

It's not on you. The OP labeled it a 454 and I didn't bother to correct him.
