Model 14/141 / mBulletin #14 / Loading Gates, Ammo, and internet parts

I apologize to some of the folks I've responded to of late, been a bit testy and sarcastic. I think its a combination of having to repeat myself time and again coupled with old age. I will repeat what I've been telling folks for some time in that these rifles are "parts specific" particularly when t...

Re: Model 14 & 141 Action Bars

This is a "classic" example of Ebay and other sites listing items for 14-141 because they don't know any difference and in this case they buyer didn't know the difference. I just went down the Ebay listings for the Model 141 and fully 60%++ would not fit a 141, same is true for the listings for the ...

Re: Model 14 & 141 Action Bars

OK..............absolutely NOT, the bar is of a different design, the bolt is of a different design, and there are differences in the trigger group. Even late 14 action bars which are of a similar design won't fit and your rifle is in a range where even parts in the same serial range are iffy at bes...

Re: Model 14 & 141 Action Bars

Thought I answered that! The early Model 14 action bar cover cannot be used on a Model 141. The later (smooth) Model 14 action bar cover could possibly be grooved to fit a 141 but it would take lot of work with less than a 50% chance of success. Those action bar covers from late 141's are simply awf...

Re: Model 14 & 141 Action Bars

The action bar cover is the most broken part on the 14/141 and has become the most expensive to replace. There is one listed right now on Ebay for a Model 14 but its actually for a 141, the bad news is that they are asking $185 for it plus postage. I have found that It is "almost" impossible to weld...

Re: Model 14 Saddle Ring Carbines

The pin is usually milled flush with the stud but visible and its visible from the inside of the frame as well. I'm too lazy and a little behind on repairs to a couple of 14's with feed problems caused by "Graf" Brass to be taking pictures. You posed the question, it has been answered. Keep in mind ...

Re: Model 14 Saddle Ring Carbines

ALL Remington SRC's and there are even a few rifles have the screw in stud which is similar but not identical to the Winchester stud. Unlike Winchester, virtually all Remington SRC's have a retaining pin that prevents the stud from rotating. I have seen a few late SRC's without the pin that I believ...

Re: New forum member - Model 14's

One thing you can be sure of is that a lot of hands have messed with both your rifles but the 14-1/2's seem to be more tolerant of this than the 14's. The older the serial, the more problems you are likely to have, and its pretty rare to find one that functions perfectly. The better 14's start aroun...

Re: In need of a Marbles R11 tang sight for a Model 25

Tang sights for the Model 12 & 25 have become very costly but they are the same frame and interchangeable. There were a LOT more tang sights made for the Model 12 which I think is the Marble R7 so my suggestion is for you to use one of those. I can only assume your stock has the screw hole in the wo...

Re: Scout scope on a 141 ?

Jim! If that rifle is really nice, wouldn't mount a scope on it but there are a lot of 141's around you could purchase that have already been drilled for scope mounts. Whatever you do please avoid drilling the barrel, make me ill when I see this. My formula used to be that you deduct about $50 for e...

Re: Cartridge Stop Removal—Model 14

Once you get it and the slot all cleaned up it should easily slide in/out. I clean my stops on a fine wire wheel and the slot with a .17 caliber brush. There is also the possibility that there is a burr on the edge of the frame but rather doubt it. You can send it to me and for $60 I'll remove the s...

Re: Model 25 lock up problem

90% of the time, its the ammunition. If you are using factory ammo for your tests then it "could be" something else. Both the Model 25 & Model 14 are super fussy about the ammo they digest.

Re: Cartridge Stop Removal—Model 14

Yep, you have to get at it through the back/underside of the frame with a narrow long blade screwdriver and tap it out.................it is a total bitch and even after you have done it 30-40 times it is still a "bitch" but good eyes with good lighting help. You need to ID the backside of the stop ...

Re: Remington model 14 serial number confusion

Remington did NOT make these rifles by serial number. We have records showing rifles with serials in the 1915 range that were assembled in the 30's, in fact like 1934 with all the latest upgrades. Your barrel code is when the rifle was assembled and it could have used a barrel or any other part from...

Re: Remington 141

It isn't stamped on the side because its a Model 14 made in 1913. Probably a lot of modifications were made to it over the years and if it has a 1940 barrel stamp it's because it was probably returned to the factory for repairs. "The "C" over the serial actually is to identify the "frame size", this...
