Re: FE Trap restoration

In the past I've used Brownells acra-glass with their black die coloring [ that's included with the acra-glass] to create the spur. Just a idea.

Re: In need of info on a Remington 1889 model

I shoot about 8 different Remingtons with Damascus barrels dated from 1873 to 1894 with my own reloads kept under 8000psi. I'd have to think sometime in their life regular modern shells have been used in them at higher pressures with no ill effect. If I were importing shotgun barrels just don't list...

Re: 1873 Lifter Grade

My 73 hammerlifter has engraving and pattern Damascus barrels. I believe it was built in 74. I put mine as a grade 3 as the grade 4 has more engraving from looking at the pictures in Semmers book. If you're going to be at all interested in Remington doubles get his book. Any Remington SxS with engra...

The Grand

This year Remington sponsored a " Nostalgia" event at the Grand and apparently the man from Remington who set it up doesn't know a whole lot about early shotguns that were used for trap shooting. This year, Remington allowed the M10, M11, M29, M11-48 and M32. Also included were the Winchester M21 an...

Re: FE Trap restoration

Boy, is that ever a beautiful looking gun. It's just too bad Remington didn't promote their high grade guns more. They don't hold a 2nd candle to anyone.

Re: 1885 BARREL REMOVAL

When removing Remington barrels on some of my guns I have to push the top lever hard to the right and sometimes you have to move the barrels back and forth when it's part way open after it's been all the way open, or down. . What I'm trying to say is, when the forearm is off, the top lever all the w...

Re: "Silent Billy" Herr and his Remington double

Great stories. I wonder how many C grade 10's were made. Can't be very many. I prize my C grade 12. Maybe the wife will bury me with it. Naw, she'll just want to sell it.

Re: Remington wins 1900 (First) GAH at Targets

Drew, in the first paragraph it's talked about different trap machines and lay out. Do you have any more info on the lay out ? Guess I'm a little thick headed and don't understand everything about the lay out and how the program was shot. Thanks for any help.

Re: The Remington Hammerless Raises Records

Drew, thank you. I shoot a C grade but it's not a trap gun. My three trap guns are F grades [ and a Parker SBT C grade ]. I really enjoy any of the old writings about trap shooting and Remingtons.

I'd like to thank everyone who attended. The weather was nice and we had a decent crowd - about 50 shooters. A 83/106 won the SCs shoot. Ken Hobday shot it. Thanks again. Paul

Remington knives made in the USA

Who now makes the knives for Remington that are made in the USA ? I thought it was Buck, but they said they haven't done it for a couple of years now. Any help ? Paul
