Re: Stock troubles

OK, I got it on! I went with what Phyrbird said and took an auger to the recoil spring guide rod hole. A few turns did the trick but it was still a heavy press to get it to fit. I'd like to refinish the wood on the old 81 but damn, I don't want to go through that again. Thing is I believe in cleanin...

Re: Stock troubles

Phyrbird, I believe your right. It is an earlier Ser# 81. That spring action you mention is exactly what is happening to the stock the last 1/8 to 1/4. I press it tight as to pop a vein in my head and as I release pressure on the stock it pops back. I had my suspicions about the depth of the holes i...

Re: Stock troubles

Thanks for the info Joe, Ill keep trying. It just seems to not go fully into battery, I get it a hair line away pushing on it but still cant get that tight metal to wood fit to allow me to line up the screw n threads. At this rate I'm hesitant to take apart my other 81s.

Stock troubles

Well I took apart my 81 for the first time to clean it and all went well putting it together after some trial n error. But as I get to the last step of putting the shoulder stock back on I get hung up. As I slip the stock on the rear of the receiver it slides on all the way except about a 1/16" from...

Re: gunsmith

I thought about him and seen some videos, but then I seen some negative videos on him as well. But just like anything else ya can't satisfy them all. The thing is, if I lived there that probably would be a different story. This way I don't have to mess with shipping and can have an actual face to fa...

Re: gunsmith

Thanks ROBOPUMP, I've ordered parts from them off of gunbroker and they've always been great to deal with. I wish I could meet n talk with them but I'm not sure how to get ahold of them other than gunbroker. I don't want to show up on the door step and look like a Rem. 81 stalker!! I did drop my 81,...

Greetings to you all. I'm new to this forum and never been on any other forum. So please bare with me as I'm still behind the times when it comes to this social media stuff. I love the old Remington 81s, so figured this was the place to be. I'm looking at having my 81, 300 Savage worked on and would...
