Mossberg Tactical Semi-Automatic 22 Long Rifle 25+1 Capacity 
by Bob M
Date Added: Sunday 27 November, 2011
Gave this 5 stars because it is a big improvement over the 37204 which I bought used and since sold. Also 5 stars for Bud's speedy delivery to my FFL: ordered on a Friday--picked it up the following Weds.! Not a lot of info is available for the 37209 (or the 37204) so I'll provide a little bit here.
Firstly, it comes with removable anodized aluminum "battle sights" front and rear, they are all metal and adjustable with detents. BIG improvement over the 37204, which has a sloppy plastic sight in the rear and a molded-in front sight (not adjustable). The 37204 (or 10rd/fixed stock versions of it) should be good if you plan on mounting a scope, then you should be alright.
Another goodie is the metal flash hider/compensator at the end of the 16" barrel. It appears to be threaded on and has a couple flats for a wrench. The 37209 also trades the carry handle for a mounting rail and has a carbine length fore-end vs the 37204's full length.
Both models are a "Plinkster" receiver and barrel mounted in a plastic "clamshell" case held together with about a dozen screws. While the 37209 does away with the fake "forward assist" on the 37204, it retains the imitation "charging handle". The 37204 case was "sharp" at the seams but easily smoothed with a small file while the 37209 didn't seem too bad.
The 25rd magazine is on the flimsy side and slightly difficult to load to full capacity. We stopped at 20rds which worked fine. It does include a loading tool. I didn't experience any feed problems but apparently if you hold the gun by the magazine or rest it on the magazine you might have feed issues. I'd like to try a 10rd to see the difference and would consider buying one as a "spare".
The mag release lever needed a little "work" inside with a small file to remove some mold roughness then a dab of grease and mags drop more easily now. Tension on the follower also needs to be released by pulling back slightly on the bolt and pushing the handle in to lock it open--a little bit quirky...
I bought this for my kids and particularly for the 6-position ATI stock (standard) so my 9-year-old son can shoulder it properly. I bought an ATI cheek rest (available here or direct from ATI) to help get his eye level with the sights. I also like the "iron" sights for them to aim with as all our other .22 rifles are scoped. For the money, this is a good "plinking" rifle, ready to go right out of the box.
