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...

Modern shotgun chokes use to change every .005 of the muzzle being smaller than the bore. .005=skeet .010=IC .015= L. Mod [ or years ago skeet out ] .020=mod .025=imp. mod. .030=full Now a days there is also lite full, extra full, turkey - some call .030 lite full and .035 full, .040 extra full Ther...

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.

Re: Lapeer Michigan 2019 SxS Shoot

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

Re: 1873 whitmore price check

You might try some Hoppies 9 bore cleaner. I've heard of guys rubbing the barrels with this over a number of days and cleaned the barrels. JMHO, you made a good buy. I have around nine Remington SxSs and the 73 is my favorite because it's the only American made SxS with that type of opener and it's ...

RB peep sight ?

I recently bought a 43 Spanish military RB. My friend cut the barrel to about 26," thus removing the bayonet lug, and reshaped the forearm. He cut a dovetail for a front globe sight which I installed. The rear peep sight was bought from Brownells - their " Creedmore long range " sight. That was a mi...

Model 11 fiber washer ?

I've owned a couple of M-11s but never knew about the fiber recoil washer in the receiver before. I also had at one time copied from the net how to adjust the gun for different strength shells. I can't find it or where I had copied it from. Can someone help me with the information on how to take the...

From the front trigger. I couldn't post because there was only 23 characters, not 40. Guess I'm at 40 now.
