Re: Where can I get the barrel nut spanner wrench?

How well does that Winchoke tool work? I'd like to disassemble the barrel ends of both of my 81s, but really don't want to booger up the bushing. I'd just like to get in and clean it all up and lube everything. Probably won't need to do that all that often from what I gather.

Re: Safety inscription

Both of mine, 1946 and 1947 Model 81s have "SAFE" under the lever.

Re: New... just got my first... and just bought my second

THE SECOND ONE IS HOME! http://i.imgur.com/5h0iC5h.jpg?1 300 Savage, serial 24xxx puts it as a 1946 manufacture, but the barrel stamp is BRR, which looks like January 1946. Has the letters "DG" branded/carved on the bottom of the pistol grip. This one has a Redfield aperture sight and the rifle appe...

Re: detachable magazines

I ordered some 1891 Argentine Mauser stripper clips from Sarco for $0.90 each. Haven't gotten them yet, so I haven't tried them. As I understand, for .35 Rem and .300 Savage, the case head size is pretty much the same as 7.62x51, so M41 clips work well, too. I may get a few of those to try out to se...

Re: New... just got my first... and just bought my second

Thanks for the welcome! You're right Phyrbird... but the wallet may need a break after this second one. At least until after I get some ammo in my stash, and probably some reloading gear! I'm thinking if the .300 Savage rifle is decently accurate, I may go shoot it in my local rifle club's Highpower...

New... just got my first... and just bought my second

Well, you guys did it. I don't suffer 'black rifle disease'... I've got "old, cool, unique, funky, awesome rifle disease". Yesterday I picked up my 1946 made Model 81 in .35 Remington.
