Re: Model 8 fails to eject

HI Cedar. Hope all is well. Not sure if I am understanding properly. Not extracting or not ejecting? If you fire one round would the bolt lock back with the brass visible but not ejected or would the bolt lock back with the brass in the chamber not extracted? Very concerned about the dimple. Could b...

Re: Firing pin variants

Hi Cam. Thanks for the information. Time for me to buy a copy Mr. Henwood's book! The bolt for the two piece does indeed have a bushing. The retaining pins are shortened to allow room for it. The middle pin is from my 1940 81 in 300 savage and the bottom is from my 1915 model 8 in 35 rem.

Firing pin variants

Hi All, I have three different types of firing pins. (No i didn't buy another rifle (yet) just a bolt assembly) Is this it or are there others?

Hi All. I was at my LGS a couple of months back and noticed some strange looking rifles in the rack behind the counter. As it turns out they were a model 8 in 35 rem and a model 81 in 300 savage. I had never seen them in person and went home to look them up. It was then that i found your great site ...
