The asking price that you mentioned seems to be very reasonable. It does have a tang sight which adds value. If the rifle fu...

Hey smitsauce,

It is possible to interchange barrels between the model 8 and 81. The internals are virtually identical and as long the barrels are the same caliber, it should not present a problem.
