Re: Delete-Please

I'm looking to trade my Model 81 for a MKIII Browning HI Power. I doubt I could trade the 81 for the pistol gripped model 8 I want, but hopefully someone wouldn't mind parting for a Hi Power for one. After all I could always buy a 35 Rem pistol gripped model 8, but right now I'm really into Hi Powe...

Re: Stock troubles

Second Q what's an Auger? Never heard of them for small tool use . Looked them up and looks likes it rasps the outer edges of a hole. Don't the 81 stocks have a metal sleeve guiding the screw?

Yep, I missed out on that Redfield 102N, I stopped at around $155. If I am going to mount anything on the 81 it will be a Williams FP-81.

Re: Williams rear central mount receiver sight serial # or designation?

Yeah, the seller still wanted $200 for the Marbles R6 sight, on top of the $750 for the rifle. I've been paying the rifle off via layaway, and a couple months in I decided a tang sight wouldn't be a bad add-on. I was too late, he already sold the sight. No big deal, the price wasn't vastly different...

Do the 8's and 81's all come factory tapped for tang sights, or is that done at an individual level? I know the one I got coming had a Marbles R6 on it.

FP-81, should've known it would be something obvious like that. Gunbroker and eBay, my bread and butter. I usually peruse both for other items on my list, add an FP-81 to that. So I take it the FP stands for foolproof , meaning it's micrometer adjustable? Any way to add target knobs, or do they look...

It's already got the weaver detachable scope mount on it. There are also a couple of plugged holes toward the back of the receiver. The holes look close to the spacing needed for an SSM, if not drilling more isn't a big deal since it's a not a virgin receiver. While the 81 is already setup for a Mar...

Thanks, but unfortunately none of those pics show a Williams side mount peep sight.
Figured more people would have them on their 8/81 as it seems to be the only peep still made that fits the Remington.

Got my first Browning auto coming in a couple months, a Remington 81 in 35Rem. It's got a Weaver detachable side mount with a Weaver K4.

I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to make a screw blank then dovetail that. I was looking at those marble universal rear sights, the kind that slide on a angled base to adjust. I would need to get one for a 1 inch shotgun barrel, then possibly drill new mounting holes. Along with all that I got my e...

No ideas on a new replacement for a rear barrel sight? I don't want to go adding any extra holes if I don't have to.

I'm not even talking about taking apart the barrels and Frankensteining them.

Now you have a 35Rem rear with a 300Savage front, would this work. Are th...
