Re: In need of a Marbles R11 tang sight for a Model 25

Tang sights for the Model 12 & 25 have become very costly but they are the same frame and interchangeable. There were a LOT more tang sights made for the Model 12 which I think is the Marble R7 so my suggestion is for you to use one of those. I can only assume your stock has the screw hole in the wo...

Re: Scout scope on a 141 ?

Jim! If that rifle is really nice, wouldn't mount a scope on it but there are a lot of 141's around you could purchase that have already been drilled for scope mounts. Whatever you do please avoid drilling the barrel, make me ill when I see this. My formula used to be that you deduct about $50 for e...

Re: Cartridge Stop Removal—Model 14

Once you get it and the slot all cleaned up it should easily slide in/out. I clean my stops on a fine wire wheel and the slot with a .17 caliber brush. There is also the possibility that there is a burr on the edge of the frame but rather doubt it. You can send it to me and for $60 I'll remove the s...

Re: Model 25 lock up problem

90% of the time, its the ammunition. If you are using factory ammo for your tests then it "could be" something else. Both the Model 25 & Model 14 are super fussy about the ammo they digest.

Re: Cartridge Stop Removal—Model 14

Yep, you have to get at it through the back/underside of the frame with a narrow long blade screwdriver and tap it out.................it is a total bitch and even after you have done it 30-40 times it is still a "bitch" but good eyes with good lighting help. You need to ID the backside of the stop ...

Re: Remington model 14 serial number confusion

Remington did NOT make these rifles by serial number. We have records showing rifles with serials in the 1915 range that were assembled in the 30's, in fact like 1934 with all the latest upgrades. Your barrel code is when the rifle was assembled and it could have used a barrel or any other part from...

Re: Remington 141

It isn't stamped on the side because its a Model 14 made in 1913. Probably a lot of modifications were made to it over the years and if it has a 1940 barrel stamp it's because it was probably returned to the factory for repairs. "The "C" over the serial actually is to identify the "frame size", this...

Re: Remington 141

The first 4,000 Model 141's did not have Gamemaster on the side and utilized left over Model 14 barrels. After serial 4,000 they had the Gamemaster name and went to the heavier 24" barrel. Basically that is your answer, your version is a bit more rare that the later rifles, and in my opinion they ar...

Re: Remington model 14

It could be that you have an early stock on the rifle not fully inletted for the hook/lever safety system that extends further back into the stock. When it hangs up in the back position, this is usually the problem, and can be readily cleared by removing the stock (requires you remove the butt plate...

When it comes to Remington rifles most of my expertise involves the Model 14/141 ...

Re: Model 25 forearm dimensions.

The hole spacing for the R14 is just a bit wide, probably should use an R12 or R25 but they are costly. I have actually used an R12 on a Model 14 but would hate to see you damage a good sight by messing with the R14. You would enhance the value significantly by using Remington wood! Jim Peterson Cha...

Re: Model 25 forearm dimensions.

You do know that the 12 & 25 use the same wood with minor fitting!

Original Model 12 wood can readily be found, just thought I would mention
it.............both guns have the same frame.

Re: Remington model 14 fail to fire

Your Model 14 is NOT your Model 8 and the ammunition requirements are different, the 8 will take flat nose stuff but the 14 doesn't like them. Your problem is your ammunition which of course you knew, find a box of original factory ammunition, and try them. They might be a bit on the expensive side ...

Model 14 / 141 After Market Ammo / BULLETIN #14

Ever since Remington ceased manufacture of new 30 Remington brass, the available market for dependable high quality after market cartridges went nuts. Just about everybody started making brass for the .25, .30, and .32 Remington, almost all of which was (in my opinion) sub-standard. The best and mos...
