Re: reed ammunition

I can only tell you this, Reed does NOT differentiate between rounds that can be used in the Model 8/81 and the 14/141. You can use FP or RN in the 8/81 but FP stuff will eventually jam in the 14/141, just had one of those in my shop where the Reed round hung up. Once I cleared the piece, cleaned up...

Re: 141 Action Bar Cover

Yours would take the last style which was smooth but had 1/8-3/16" wide groove milled into it the entire length. The problem with your rifle is that it is probably in the 70,000 serial range which were some of the very worst to leave the plant, internal milling, and metal/metal fit was less than goo...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

I don't recommend cast bullets, they will shave off little slivers in the feed system, AND you will have problems internally. It doesn't take much to mess up the loading system of these rifles.................don't get cute, you must think 1912 not 2020. I might also mention that modified Model 14's...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

Just a thought, you need to remove the stock from the frame, if its factory the serial would be stamped on the narrow wood surface where it meets the lower receiver (lower frame). I just purchased a rifle for parts that has a lovely custom stock on it but I'm sure it isn't factory, will try to attac...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

The stock is NOT factory and I'm a pretty knowledgeable guy when it comes
to the Model 14.

Re: Remington 14 locked up

The action bar lock broke off, it happens, bad piece of metal, and the metal back then was not nearly as durable as today. Its an annoying and tedious job but you can usually/eventually strip it down far enough to get the broken part out. In 45+ years of messing with these I've had to do it twice on...

Re: Model 141

GM32 has the right idea and he left me laughing out loud about Gun Scrubber on the old Remington finish. Yes, the old oil turns to varnish and can affect the bolt and the trigger as well. Many times the dried oil is mixed with nicotine if it came from a smokers house and almost everyone back then sm...

Re: Loading Problems Model 14/141 BULLETIN #13

Hey! Thanks for the endorsement! It isn't that the later 141's can't be made right, it takes some time, knowledge, and patience. They can be very trying, its mostly the metal to metal fit, and the way they "made" some items fit. Its sort of like the owner was never going to take the rifle apart. Whe...

Loading Problems Model 14/141 BULLETIN #13

I get weary from telling folks just how fussy these rifles are when it comes to the ammunition they use. My first introduction in just how particular they are came from Ken Blauch after I was whining about feed/ejection problems I was experiencing with Western Super-X factory ammunition. Ken advised...

Re: Model 25 32-20 feeding trouble

I have done little repair work on the Model 25 but this sounds like a carrier & carrier dog thing. You can do essentially the same thing with a Model 14 that won't feed and has a bad carrier dog spring.

Re: Model 14 sight question

Roger all that!

Yeah, you can try heat like a propane torch for no more than a minute.

..............and if you decide to cut it out of there, you can buy a
replacement. I have a bunch of the really low sight in inventory.

Good luck!

Re: High number model 25

My opinion is that cast bullets are probably not helpful, even the best shave off slivers, and these actions will jam easily from one tiny piece of lead or even a grain of powder but Tom can address that with you. If you want to endear yourself to him, post the serial and barrel code so he has somet...
