Re: Model 8/81? Remington

The stripped stock displays exceptional figuring, with checkering and pistol grip cap. I cant help but think its an above standard grade. Today you never get walnut like this on an off the rack rifle.

Re: Model 8 safety

IMG_0282.jpg IMG_0269 (3).jpg The safety on a recently purchased model 8 was loose and swiveling on the shaft, not engaging or disengaging. Finding a replacement seemed impossible. So I did a solid fix. I dismantled the receiver leaving only the bolt and safety to visually see the proper position, ...

Re: Remington 141

It was a gun show find cheap..as in $350. No one at the small guns how had any idea it was even there. I thought it would at least be a good shooter. Upon disassembly the numbers match, butt plate, stock, trigger assembly and receiver. it functions and fires beautifully.

His theory is that it was possibly built for a Remington employee. It could very well be one of one built. The dealer at the show dropped pri...
