"New Remington Gun"
https://digital.la84.org/digital/collec ... 7/id/32838
Pleasing Improvements Make Hit With Shooting Men.
Another Remington gun has made a big hit. It is the new 1908 model, solid breech, hammerless, take-down, six-shot repeating shotgun. This is the type of gun which had a thorough trying out in he hands of George Lyon in the big Southern Shoot recently, when he won the Southern Handicap with 94 out of 100.
Shooters in all sections hail the new gun with delight as it is the simplest, yet most reliable gun of its kind made. Its great features are the solid breech, non-protruding breech block, is hammerless, handles fast and always "stays put," and above all is absolutely safe and stays impervious to sand, water, leaves and other foreign materials which, in some guns, are liable to get into the breech. It embodies many new and novel features and eliminates those which are objectionable in repeating shotguns of the present day. Beauty of design, perfection of workmanship and finish are strikingly apparent. Absence of projecting parts adds symmetry to its altogether pleasing and graceful lines. It handles fast and balances perfectly, due in large measure to the grip of stock being more nearly in line with the barrel than any other design of repeating shotgun yet produced.
Operation of the mechanism causes no change in the exterior appearance of the gun, excepting in the position of the slide handle or fore-arm, which is unimportant. The design of receiver or frame provides for a solid breech. There are no openings in top or sides of receiver to weaken
it, or allow dirt, snow, rain or other foreign substance to reach the mechanism, to rust or prevent its working under all conditions.
But a feature of much greater importance to the shooter, and one to which we desire to draw especial attention, is the fact that the receiver is absolutely solid in the rear. The breech block does not slide out, nor is there an opening of any description at this point, affording absolute protection no matter what may occur, against the breech block, firing-pin, powder gases
defective primers, grease, etc., from blowing back into the eyes or face of the shooter with attendant liability of serious injuries.
(Likely dig at Winchester 1897 and Marlin 1898 repeating shotguns)
The loading and ejecting of shells is done through an opening in the underside of receiver, with the advantage that ejected shells are kept away from the face of the shooter and from interfering with the aim.
