Re: New Replacement Wood

I heard that Turnbull manufacturing (I think that's the name) can make a stock for anything. I know they make high end 1911's so I expect them to be very expensive. The Model 8 I just won on Gunbroker may need a new set of stocks due to a lot of sanding in the (far) past. I may spring for a nice woo...

Re: Model 8 finish restoration

Generally, it is not a good idea to reblue anything when it comes to resale.

That said, it's your weapon. If you wish to reblue it and keep it in the family, then by all means do so.

Questions about a Model 8.

I came across one recently that has no markings on it's left side. Is that normal?

Also, the serial is in the 18,000 range. About what year would that be? Caliber was .25 Remington. I thought .25 caliber was discontinued very early, does all this add up?

There was something like 10 million rounds of Turkish 8mm imported into the US around the year 2000, all of it on stripper clips.

I'd suggest finding some of that and maybe getting an 8mm rifle as well. 8-)
