Re: Another VERY interesting Model 8!

There is a guy trying to scam sell this on Armslist right now. He is asking $500. I am trying to get him to reply to my inquiry. He also is trying the same scam with a Marlin 1893.

I responded to the add on Armslist and got the guy to call me. When mentioned to him that this rifle just sold on GB, he said "that cannot be". I told him he w...

Re: LOVE STORIES: Your first model 8 (or 81)

I first handled my grandfather's model 8 in 35 REM about 1956. I inherited that rifle in 1960 when he passed away. Hunted with that rifle until I bent the receiver traveling through the woods on a 4 wheeler around 1990. That rifle never failed me in 30 years of use in all kinds of weather in Maine a...
