Re: What if Remington tried to market the Model 81 Today?

A six position M-4 style stock and quad rail on the front would be most likely. In this day and age a rifle isn't a rifle unless it has 50 pounds of superfluous crap hanging off it.

I stumbled upon one of the WWII era Remington produced A-5's (not 11, has magazine cutoff) in 20 gauge. A new friction piece and ring later, and it has become a great bunny slayer.

Re: Ejector problems in M81/.300 Savage

Haven't run into the same issue with an 8/81 yet, but I've had similar issues with junk commercial carbine knock offs usually due to peening of the ejector plunger. Usually end up with either stovepipes or interesting ejection vectors, e.g. the half moon scar on my forehead.

I'm assuming they have a long throat, much like the Remingtons in .257 Roberts. In other words, if you want a spitzer to actually be contacting the lands you would have to seat it too far out to fit the magazine.
