Re: The Model 81 in 25REM.

If it's marked "25-35" that's a dead giveaway for a swapped, non-original barrel. The 25-35 Rem stamping was discontinued around 1910ish

Re: Cheek Pad for the 8

I like the non-permanent mods that can always be removed and the rifle returned to stock config if necessary. Great little addition! My dad once had the same pad on a Springfield M1A and liked it. Bet that's a comfortable shooter!

Re: Loading the Model 81 .300 Savage caliber

An easy way to load the magazine is to put the rear end of the cartridge into the magazine box first and slide it down & backwards under the side springs. And continue that way one round at a time. That way should be quite easy.

Re: Loading the Model 81 .300 Savage caliber

The magazine box in a rifle chambered in 300Sav should hold 4 cartridges without issue. This may require a disassembly to inspect the magazine box, side springs, and magazine spring. If you do disassemble, I'd recommend watching our how-to videos and GO SLOW. As a side note, **the ends of the magazi...

Hi Stan,

Special Police 81 stamped "#31" by LA County should be serial number 18760. It was listed for sale on Checkpoint Charlies earlier this year for $7500.

Pictures at the time show it to be very clean and all original. Outstanding gun.
