Re: My first Model 8..

Well I got to take the 8 to the range this weekend....Holy cow its accurate and a thumper on steel targets. I was shooting 1 inch groups at 150yds. I did not expect this at all. Not bad for a 112 yr old rifle. This one will definitely get some time in the woods this fall.

Re: My first Model 8..

Any idea on what brand the front sight is? It has a see thru hole below the sight bead. Since this is my first Model 8, I'm just now learning out it. What your best guess on the value of this rifle?

Re: Model 8 Left handed Safety lever?

This is my first Model 8, I once I held it, I had to get it. It definitely has a little "Character", but it wont be a safe queen. Getting excited about taking it out to the range and hunting with it this fall.
