Re: A Set of Remington Rifles

Hey norm, Thanks for your input. That indeed would be a fantastic set of rifles. If there that many barrel markings and there are four model 8's that would mean a set of 160 rifles. How many markings are there for the model 81? Holy Cow!!! :shock: :shock: That many rifles could cause a real bad case...

Re: Need help Identifying 1910rem 8 part

I believe it to be a part of the safety lever that has been broken off of the pin that goes in the right side of the receiver and becomes flush with the left side of the receiver. It appears to have a slight taper on one end which is consistent with the pin.
