Re: Semi rough shape 1900 on the auction block

Did you get it Hibby? Going to Minnesota $600 was a pretty good price (esp in Kanukastan dollars), of course taxes,buyers fee and shipping will add close to 40% to the price - still not bad The Model 8 went for a thousand :? Hey, no I didn't. I hadn't even registered for the auction. That Model 8 s...

Re: Dating my Model 8

Welcome to the forum. There are characteristics that can help you be sure of your date of manufacture. If the rifle is a 4 digit serial # " 14xx" then it would be a first year production. Prior to 1921 Remington didn't use the date code system, the stamp on your rifle could be a repair code "when it...

Re: Stock set for Model 81 on Fleabay

Didn't take long for that stock to sell? When I follow the link it works but if I search for it using the exact keywords it doesn't populate.

I had just seen a Model 81 parts gun sans the receiver sell for $360.00. It didn't look better than fair condition in the photos.

Re: Rough shape 1900 on the auction block

WOW! Do you think you could share the serial number with us for our FN 1900 database? It's serial #2007. Upon closer examination I can't tell if the buttstock had some filler added where the comb meets the wrist. I can see a faint bit of checkering left on the grip, the finish doesn't match the for...

I found this 1900 the other day. It looks like it has led kind of a rough life. I'm on the fence as to whether I want to bid or not. The custom buttstock is definitely interesting as well as the choice of rear sight that replaced the original.

Here's an interesting custom stocked Model 8 I found on a auction site the other day. I'm not sure if it has a longer than normal length of pull, it may just me the long pistol grip throwing off the scale.

What I do is I start at the main breakdown search. I search under semi auto rifles.
