Re: Help with identification

I was able to fire a few rounds through the rifle today. The first couple pulls of the trigger and it was real slow to fire. The hammer hung up a little when the trigger was released. After two or three rounds it acted normal. Good shooter, I have to get used to the peep sight. I made some of my own...

Re: Help with identification

I have tested a few round through the gun and it looked like it was closing and operating properly, but I will check again. I might take the action out again and check fit. Thanks for the help. I like reading through all the information in all the posts.

Re: Help with identification

Great info. So you think the barrel swap was probably done by remington? Do you think this gun is worth $400?
I can't wait to shoot it. Saturday morning the outdoor range was closed for repairs, so I will have to wait a couple more weeks.
Thanks

Re: Help with identification

Here is a couple more pictures of the reciever and the date stamp on the barrel.
This is my deceased uncles gun and I was planning on giving my aunt $400 for the gun.
Thanks

Re: Help with identification

Does that hurts the value alot?
About how old do you think the back end is?
I plan on shooting this soon, is there a certain brand of ammo that works better in these?
Thanks

Re: Help with identification

This is the only one I have. It's the top of the barrel. Thanks for the help. The reciever has no markings on the side, and a J with a circle around it and the number 366 on the under side.
Thanks

Help with identification

I bought a 300 savage today so I assume it has to be an 81. The date code in the barrel is BK3. So it was made in 1941. The fore stock is the beaver tale and the rear is not the pistol type. The only serial or markings us under reciever and it says J 366.
Thanks
Scott
