Re: Model 8 Extractor

My guess is that you have the wrong extractor. Extractors evolved over the production years on the 8 and 81 and if you have several to look at side by side you would notice a different contour to the lengthwise view of the individual extractor. Later extractors for both late 8's and almost all 81s g...

Re: Barrels

I agree with 81. But, if you really needed a new barrel I am sure that Hart or Shiloh or one of the custom makers would turn one out for you. The barrel unscrews from the barrel extension, the big shiny piece that is stamped with the caliber and mates up with the bolt and bolt carrier. Once the barr...

Re: Grandpa's Model 8 in .35 Remington

Great example of an early, well cared for, 3 digit gun. I could only wish mine was as nice.

Re: Model 8 on Board Banner

I would have to say it is mine also. It's definitely the jewel of my collection. It will probably stay that way as C Grades are about the limit of my wallet. Although, based on some of the bidding I see on the auction sights, a nice plain old A grade might become un-affordable before to long. That i...

Re: What should I pay for a Browning 1900 in an auction?

My assessment is spot on with 81Police. It is not the most original 1900 we have ever seen. I have both versions also, ribbed and non ribbed, early and later production. That gun is not completely original and I'm not sure it is worth any more than the currrent bid of $2200 or so. While both of mine...

Re: Model 8 on Board Banner

Hi there rem81auto. That is my 8 pictured and it is a true C grade. Marked so on the wood like it should be. Serial number is 13870 which puts it approx 1909 manufacture. It's a 30Rem, marked 30-30 on the barrel extension. Gun is probably close to 98%, shows just some carry wear on the top front of ...

Re: Rem. 8 Carbine

Trade secret buddy old pal. Just kidding. I'm working the barrel from the muzzle end and the shroud from the receiver end. The reinforcement is a mystery to me, I don't know whether it is a press fit or silver soldered. It seemed easier to do it my way than to try and figure out how to move that wit...

Not sure that is a good idea now, Jim's already threatened to jump in his truck and drive to NY if he has to, just so he get his hands on it. No telling what he might do if I sent it to you 1st instead of him. He's actually going to just keep foaming at the mouth for a while longer. I am waiting on ...

Re: Model 81 Carbine

Well, that was an awesome find. Like 81Police said, just when we thought we had seen it all. I just started making these after trying it out on my 8 in 25Rem. I sent you a pm, would like to get in touch with you to talk about it sometime.

Re: Forearm on 81

Eventually your forearm will get a little sloppy if you take it on and off enough. When you tighten down the screw that holds it in place, it just tightens the for-arm up against the small piece that is riveted to the barrel, it also touches the barrel shround and the piece that the takedown screw g...

Re: feeding problems

1st thing to check is to make sure your magazine spring is in correctly. The open ends of the spring should face to the rear of the rifle, not the front. It is a common mistake in re-assembly and causes the gun not to feed. Sometimes it will feed one or two shells, sometimes even the third. Never a ...

Re: 81 problem. Hep me! Hep me!

Does it pick up the next shell out of the magazine everytime or is it just jamming up on the empty shell from the chamber while leaving the nexxt loaded shell in the mag? Or does it do both on occasion? It is conceivable that you have the spring set in the barrel from a 25/30/32 instead of the set f...

Re: 81 problem. Hep me! Hep me!

Take a look at what 81Police posted for you. It's either the extractor or the ejector, or a combo of both. Go easy on both pieces, in other words, don't bend the extractor alot at 1st and don't file much off the ejector. A little fiddling with either or both should fix you up.

Re: Rem. 8 Carbine

Jim81, let me get my 35Rem version done to see if it works. If it does, I don't see why it wouldn't also work on a 300Sav. I hope you have some meat on your shoulder though, that 300Sav is a kicker with the 22 inch barrel. Might be a handful coming out of a 17" version. My biggest concern is the act...

Re: Rem. 8 Carbine

Ok, did some checking last nite on my 25. Can only take about 5" off of the barrel jacket without getting into the roll stampings. Taking 5" off the back of the jacket would eliminate both rear sight screws and the slug for attaching the for-arm. I like peep sights so no rear sight doesn't bother me...

Re: Rem. 8 Carbine

Ok, I'll donate the rifle, who has the shop to do the work. Got an 8 in 25 that is a perfect candidate. Barrel is bad about 1-2 inches from the end. Shortening the barrel shroud is probably a piece of cake, could be accomplished with a hacksaw, file and drill. Fill the rear sight holes like they did...

Re: Model 81 with detachable mags - 35 rem

Awesome, and an extra clip to boot. Don't see those very often. Nice 81 for sure and extras to go along with it. Nice find. An 8 or 81 with a Krieger is one I don't have yet.
