Browning High-Power Semiautomatic Rifle---European Rem Mod 8

Postby Guest » Wed Apr 06, 2005 10:21 pm

This was a pretty high-powered semiautomatic rifle back in 1900 when John Browning first designed it. It was not produced until 1910, and built from 1910-14, and then again from 1921-31. The same design was licensed to Remington, and produced as the Remington Model 8. The Browning version, however, has an aiming rib above the barrel and a leaf rear-sight. This weapon was a pretty advanced design for the time.

If any of you hard-core Remington fans see one of these rifles, please let me know. I am very interested in finding one to go along with my 8s and 81s. Thanks
