Re: looking for my first 8, 81, 14, or 141 in .35 Remington

Adam - not quite in the $400 range, but... I have an 81 in 300 Savage w/ Stith scope mount and Savage 2.5x7 scope. Stith mount allows use of iron sights. Def a shooter. If interested, pls shoot me an email for details/pix. I don't get here often enough. Email is myerssw@knology.net. Thanx Steve

Re: Model 8 in 300 Savage?!?

Follow up (dumb) question. See where you guys say that a bbl/caliber change is possible in an 81. Also that the 300 Savage and 35 Rem share the same spring set, AND it sounds like the same bolt/bolt face... If all the above is true, what does it take to swap out an 81 from 300 Savage to 35 Remington...

Model 8 in 300 Savage?!?

OK - from all the research I have done/seen, the Model 8 did NOT come in 300 Savage. 300 Savage was only offered later, in the Model 81. Reason I ask is TWO sellers have listings for Model 8s in 300 Savage on Gunbroker right now. One is DEF an 8, as seen in the pix. No show of caliber on bbl. Other ...

Re: weaver side mount 7

I have an scoped 81 300 Savage (1947) that I would be willing to trade for a non-scoped gun in either 300 Savage or 35 Remington. Mine has a Stith mount and a 2-7 scope.

If you, or anyone else is interested, pls email me @ myerssw@knology.net. I don't check her very often. Thanx

Re: M81 Recoil pad

I am now using a 'sissy pad' for range work. Adds less than 1/2" LOP. I found something the other day - a slip on boot, w/ various thickness foam inserts. Only $15. Think I will give it a try before I cut the stock. As I shoot and hunt the rifle, and reload for it, if I determine it is something tha...

M81 Recoil pad

Just picked up a M81/300 Savage. I really didn't believe - until I shot it - that recoil would be that bad. But, as others have said, it is... Before you beat me up about keeping it original, consider the following. It is not original. Been drilled/tapped/two holes filled for scope mount. Now has a ...

Re: New (to me) Mod 81

It certainly looks god enough for shooting and carrying in the woods and not likely the price is going down (as they say with collectables "I bought it too soon" rather then I paid too much). :D 81 .300Savage was also my first in 8/81, only previous rifle I had shot was a Ruger 300WSM... the 81 300...

Re: New (to me) Mod 81

In my opinion, the main drawback of the .300 Savage in the Model 81 is that i would describe the recoil as being brutal, especially from the bench. You would not notice that so much in a hunting scenario. Due to the anticoagulant blood medication I take, I must use a "Sissy Bag" (and there are also...

Welcome aboard the forum for all of us rem8/81 nuts. Congrats on your Gb purchase, I looked at the rifle while it was up for auction and it seemed OK other than being tapped for a scope.

LOL! Just picked up a M81 in 300 Savage. More because I wanted a 300 Savage - and Sav 99s in good shape are high! - so the 81 was my ticket...

Also think a 14/141 would be way cool. Want one in 35 Rem - even tho I have a Marlin 336 in 35 Rem. Hopefully soon I can have a pic like yours of both!

Re: New (to me) Mod 81

Ok - shot today. WAS surprised at the recoil of the 300 Savage. But WAS also a metal butt plate. This one is NOT a collector - too many rust pits. Def a shooter. Think I may simply put a recoil pad on it and hunt the snot out of it. I know my Sav 99/284 Win doesn't have the recoil of the 81/300 Sav ...
