Re: High number model 25

hey treasons, my 34xxx turned out to be a 32xxx, what I read as a 4 was a high struck 2, the top of the 2 didn't show. You might recheck your 8 and see if it isn't a 3. Barrel code on mine was on the bottom quarter on the left side just forward of the receiver, there were a couple of what I assume a...

Re: Model 25 32-20 feeding trouble

Thanks Jim, the variable responses to different cartridges had me scratching my head and pulling what hair I still have.

Numrich shows a carrier dog spring in stock, does anyone know where a schematic for the model 25 can be found?

Re: Model 25 32-20 feeding trouble

I have a model 25 with the same problem, except it will sometimes chamber a cartridge. However, while I was messing around with it I happened to turn it upside down and it chambered a cartridge just fine and did so consistently. I was using factory remington 100 gn lead nose cartridges and reloads u...

Re: High number model 25

Tom, thanks for the reply I'm positive on the serial number, will send a pic to your email. Do you have any recommendations on lubricating the action on 25's? I have a supply of both 85 and 100 gn xtp's, do you have a favorite load using them? I had seen another post where someone had commented on t...

Re: High number model 25

Jim, thanks for letting Tom know about my questions, looking forward to hearing from him. Thanks for the warning about disassembling and reassembling, won't be breaking mine down on a whim.

Re: High number model 25

Thanks for the reply Jim, I will be fine with sending Tom the serial number and barrel code. I had read some of the earlier model 25 posts and so was aware of the database. I was curious if anyone else had a 25 that the pump action was "sticky" on when loading a cartridge. I have fired the rifle wit...

Re: 788 question

From what I have seen lately that is a decent price if you are looking for a shooter in the 788 (and if it is a shooter). I hunt with a 788 in .243 and it is a great field gun, you get no bragging rights but it gets the job done. You can probably pick up a new rifle for about the same price if you d...

High number model 25

I have a model 25 32-20 serial number 34xxx with an October 1936 barrel that came from a pawn shop in San Antonio. I have read that there were only 33,000 or so model 25's made and was wondering how close to the end of production this rifle was and if there were potentially any issues related to rif...
