I have my grandfather's Model 8 (serial #4404 manufactured in 1907) in .30 caliber. The gun is in outstanding shape. I shoot the rifle periodically with outstanding accuracy to 100 yards. Unfortunately, I may have to sell it. Can anyone tell me where/how to do that and, perhaps, what it might be wor...

I have my grandfather's model 8 in .30 cal. Serial # is 4404, manufactured in 1907. Does anyone know if it's possible to track the life of this gun.... from date of manufacture to where it was initially shipped from factory? I think my grandfather was the first owner, but it would be fun to know. Th...
Interesting observation (pistol grip) on the elk picture of my grandfather. (I hadn't noticed it.) I don't know why that gun is different. Here are 2 more pictures (with a bear and deer) where the gun matches mine. I know from stories my dad told me, that the gun I have was my grandfather's, and the...
Here is a picture of my grandfather with an elk - in 1909 - with his 30-caliber Model 8 that I now have and have described here. The gun has been in my family since the day it was manufactured.

My dad's dad was the original owner of this model 8, serial #4404, manufactured in 1907. It's 30 cal. I have had a model 8 collecter and gunsmith go through it, and it is in remarkably good shape - ok and safe to shoot - so I do. I can't find ammo, but I will.... and I will reloard some. I have rese...
I've got a Model 8, serial #4404, that was originally owned by my grandfather. Just had it gone through by a gunsmith/model 8 collector... so I know it's still good to shoot. Ammo. That's the question. Where can I get it?
