Re: Deluxe Remingtons

The stock is NOT factory and I'm a pretty knowledgeable guy when it comes
to the Model 14.

Re: Remington 14 locked up

The action bar lock broke off, it happens, bad piece of metal, and the metal back then was not nearly as durable as today. Its an annoying and tedious job but you can usually/eventually strip it down far enough to get the broken part out. In 45+ years of messing with these I've had to do it twice on...

Re: Model 141

GM32 has the right idea and he left me laughing out loud about Gun Scrubber on the old Remington finish. Yes, the old oil turns to varnish and can affect the bolt and the trigger as well. Many times the dried oil is mixed with nicotine if it came from a smokers house and almost everyone back then sm...

Ken Blauch has died!

Ken Blauch who literally wrote the book on the Model 14, 141, & 25 died
this morning (November 15th) at 1AM. Those of us that were lucky enough
to know him personally have lost a dear friend.

Re: Loading Problems Model 14/141 BULLETIN #13

Hey! Thanks for the endorsement! It isn't that the later 141's can't be made right, it takes some time, knowledge, and patience. They can be very trying, its mostly the metal to metal fit, and the way they "made" some items fit. Its sort of like the owner was never going to take the rifle apart. Whe...

Loading Problems Model 14/141 BULLETIN #13

I get weary from telling folks just how fussy these rifles are when it comes to the ammunition they use. My first introduction in just how particular they are came from Ken Blauch after I was whining about feed/ejection problems I was experiencing with Western Super-X factory ammunition. Ken advised...

Re: Model 25 32-20 feeding trouble

I have done little repair work on the Model 25 but this sounds like a carrier & carrier dog thing. You can do essentially the same thing with a Model 14 that won't feed and has a bad carrier dog spring.

Re: Model 14 sight question

Roger all that!

Yeah, you can try heat like a propane torch for no more than a minute.

..............and if you decide to cut it out of there, you can buy a
replacement. I have a bunch of the really low sight in inventory.

Good luck!

Re: High number model 25

My opinion is that cast bullets are probably not helpful, even the best shave off slivers, and these actions will jam easily from one tiny piece of lead or even a grain of powder but Tom can address that with you. If you want to endear yourself to him, post the serial and barrel code so he has somet...

Re: High number model 25

My friend Tom Hemphill is the world authority on the Model 25 and maintains a data base with serials, I will let Tommy know about this posting and he can give you better info but no doubt yours is a very late rifle. Tom can also give you some guidance on what ammunition to use whereas I can tell you...

Re: Model 14 sight question

I have seen this on a number of rifles I have worked on over the years but in all but two cases was able to get the sight to move. In both cases where the sight wouldn't move, it was the front sight, and I ended up cutting it our with a diamond edge Dremel tool cutter. I cut it in half and the somew...

Re: 141 carbine or not.

All true 141 carbines were made using Model 14 18-1/2" carbine barrels. 99% of these were made under serial 35,000 although I have one with a 71xxx serial it appears to have been sent to the factory to have the Model 14 carbine barrel installed. Without seeing a picture it would seem that yours is s...

Re: Model 14 & 14-1/2 Stocks / BULLETIN #12

I think it maybe because I'm old or just have too much useless information floating around in my head but I need to clarify the serial number range in which Remington went to the hook/lever safety system. The highest serial I have in my parts collection that does NOT have the hook/lever system is 66...
