Re: Surge in Prices?

Just applied for our FOID card renewals - may take forever but the application should be good for the duration. Took 4 months for my CCL but that was just before Corona. Shelves are bare for most reloading supplies. Good that I stocked up before the troubles and I was able to find a few thousand W2...

Re: Surge in Prices?

Based on the recent surge of firearm sales (and ammo sales) I wouldn't take anything as a long term trend. ATF estimates 35 million firearm sales this year, crazy Illinois will account for around 5 million of that. Being Illinois starts off with a 6-8 month wait for a license (FOID), 2021 isn't goin...

Re: My ring trigger 32

I just looked at your 22's again and I think I realize that they are a pair!! More outrageous There are close in serial number which, I'm not expert, but I believe Remington just pulled guns off the line sequential just wasn't considered. If there's sequential pair of anything out there, I haven't ...

Re: Nickel

IMHO... not sure why it's not clearer when I researched but Nickel didn't show up until the late 1860's and anything prior and didn't show up in Remington until early 1870's. If I see anything that was made before 1870 I'm very suspect. I have however seen things like the ZigZag a few in Nickel but ...

Re: My ring trigger 32

All my favorites belong to someone else now.... I'd have to dig for pictures In 4 barrels I had a set with acid etched barrels and engraved frames. In 5 barrels I also had a set and do have a picture in hand from an old email. Elliot_22s.jpg Stepping back one from the Elliot, the ZigZag was always o...

Re: My ring trigger 32

It's a very nice Elliot, with a nice box. Just google archival boxes, it's just non-acid cardboard etc for protection of valuable papers etc. I'm also a very big fan of renaissance wax, it's what (at least many) museums use on their antique firearms for protection. Makes they blue just a bit more pu...

Re: My ring trigger 32

I'd buy an archival box (a larger one) and the tape and make a box for this.
It's just cheaper to buy a larger box and use it as materials to make exact fit boxes than buy the materials otherwise. I made archival boxes for all my boxes so they wouldn't further deteriorate.
This box deserves it :D

Re: New forum member - Model 14's

Hello all. New to the forum, and new to Rem Model 14's. In fact, new to Remington altogether. Have acquired a 44-40 Dominion of Canada issue, serial # 31705. From that number, am I correct in believing that it's from 1914 ? I've also got my eye on a Model 14, 30Rem cartridge. Have not yet been advi...
