Re: Installing new extractor

Well I finally got the new extractor installed and fit and functioning to my satisifaction. The biggest problem in fitting a new part to these older rifles is the fact that if you mess-up your part where do you get another. Therefore I took my time, polished here there, fit the retaining lug to the ...

As long as your Model 81 is in good condition I don't see a problem. I have a Model 81 in 300 Savage and it shot fine with factory ammo. I even reload for it, with no issues other than light loads don't function the action.

Re: Model 8/81 Functioning

I doubt if you will find any load data for a 220 gr. bullet for the .30 Remington. This cartridge as well as the 30-30 WCF were developed to shoot a 160 gr. The real issue I see with that heavy bullet is that it might create a cartridge too long to function in the Model 8 - 81. It might be feasible ...

Re: is the model 8/81 a poor design

I can think of several reasons for the jacket to become loose, but I feel that a major cause is somebody trying to disassemble it by clamping on the receiver extension and then trying to unscrew the barrel bushing. Our Model 81 had a loose jacket so we disassembled it and drilled it slighty larger w...

Judging from what I've seen lately as for Model 8s and 81s and the asking price, you did good. I think my brother and I would have bought it too.

Edit: No I'm opposed to the reblue. A reblued firearm is a reblued firearm and can't be un reblued.

Re: A Model 81 in .300 Savage

Well I got lucky. I was cruising the Numrich Arms web site and found a sight base. On a hunch I ordered it. The hole spacing was correct for the 81 altough the holes had to be bored out. And the sight had to be fit to the barrel jacket.
So now the Model has a folding rear sight and a tang sight.
