Hello fellow enthusiasts. Here's four of my model 8's that i picked up this year. My desire to own one has been around awhile but this February sparked the start. The first one "25 REM" I found on gunbroker and hit buy it now on a Wednesday. That coming weekend "before the money order even arrived t...

Re: New recruit from Central Pa

Be careful Hibby. Around here we talk of a sickeness called "Jackitis". It's a disorder where 8/81 collecting becomes uncontrollable. There is no known cure, just ask forum member Jack1653! Haha. I may just have this disorder... My overall plan is to find the 32 Remington to complete the Model 8 se...

Re: New recruit from Central Pa

Noticed you got one with the top-toe buttplate that is a good find. & in 25 Rem, had one almost the same & had to trade for a Inglis. It too has JMB designs. Good luck with the pair, watch out though, they'll soon be whining :cry: for their relatives. Then infect you with Jackitis :!: :lol: :!: Tha...

Re: Model 8s & an 81 Group Photo

That’s a great collection!

Your collection is basically what I’m going for, have the 25 & 35 now. I’m on the hunt for a Model 8 in 30 & 32 rem and a 81 in 300 sav.

Henwood book

I received The Great Remington 8 book from my parents for my birthday. My mother was very fortunate to have found it new and at a un-inflated price. First proof through and short read of some parts, I’m very impressed with the information and history. I won’t be able to give it the full read until I...

Re: gunbroker--problems

What I do is I start at the main breakdown search. I search under semi auto rifles. I then filter the search by using Remington as the manufacturer and then pick the caliber of choice, and once I exhaust the search for “25 Remington” I’ll go onto the next chambering of choice. The only firearms that...

Re: Ahlberg Collection ** Picture Heavy!

To say “what a collection is an understatement...”.

I imagine the quest for all of these to include the friendships and the stories must have made building your arsenal very rewarding & quite the experience.

Thank you for devoting the time and knowledge posting about these rifles.

Krieger conversion

Good evening everyone. I have a lead on what I’m sure is a Krieger converted model 8 in 35 Remington. They didn’t have anything put in their ad about it, but it definitely has a removable magazine. It’s in average shape and no extra holes in the receiver, it has a white line butt and the addition of...

Re: Stamp question.

Thank you. I’m green behind the ears on these and figured I’d ask. I’ve learned a bit over the time that I’ve been searching for one from this forum. Once I purchased one I decided it’s time to join the forum. I assume since there’s no other stamps that this rifle was not sent back to Remington for ...

Stamp question.

Here’s a couple pictures of my recently acquired Model 8 with stamps that I hope to hear some information about. One photo is at the serial number where the receiver meet the barrel. The second photo is on the barrel shroud.
