Re: New Guy

Welcome Jerry! I was wondering who did stock reproductions for the Model 8s and 81s. Now I know, Bob Breuninger. I did a quick google search on Bob which pointed me back to this forum and a thread with some great pictures of reproductions. For the new folks, like me, here is pointer with some great ...

Re: Hello Model 8 Forum

I really like that buttstock! I also believe that tang sight is stock! Others know more than I do.

Re: Newbie member!

That is a gorgeous set of furniture! I was getting ready to ask if they were after market when I re-read your post indicating stock.

Very nice!

Re: Recoil pad stock?

Well, I sure would like to restore the original stock but I am afraid they cut a little too much off!

I guess I will just have to look for another one! In fact, I got a lead yesterday on a collection of 6 not far away.

Re: Newbie member!

Welcome aboard! The 8 and 81 are new to me but I fell for them as soon as I laid my hands on the Model 8 I purchased!

I am down here in Trinidad. You went to a great school.

Re: My new hobby: sewing and quilting!

There is a reason most tailors are men! It looks like you do great work. Back in the mid 70’s after graduating from electrical engineering school. I took up sewing outdoor gear. My wife and I bought a nice White sewing machine (beside Singer that is the only name I know). Back then I was sewing Fros...

Recoil pad stock?

I am guessing but I do not believe the recoil pad on my Model 8 is stock.

If not stock what did the butt stock look like from the factory?

Here in S Ky the horseback hunting is AAHHH limited. The only place you might try it is Land Between the Lakes. They might have regs against it there too. :( Bummer, I am sure you have a few horses out there. Here is a close up of the Makers Mark. Let me know if you want me to trace a pattern for y...

Re: Does my 1932 Model 8 have a firing pin spring?

Thanks for the info Sarge. When I figure out how to pull the bolt out and disassemble it I will look for the spring.

Last night I slugged the barrel (.357) so I can cast up some lead bullets.

Like my A5 I really like the way the Model 8 shoots. It hits like a hammer!

Does my 1932 Model 8 have a firing pin spring?

I have read of some issues of firing when releasing the bolt on some of the older Model 8. I have yet to let mine "fly" not knowing if there is an issue with a Model 8 made in 1932.

Does my 1932 Model 8 have a firing pin spring? Should I be concerned?

I walked into my local small town gun store last Friday and there it was... an old Remington...the ones I had seen in all of the old Remington posters. I did not know what it was other than an old Remington chambered in .35 Remington. I went home and started to do some research on what this rifle wa...
