My newest model 81

I found this lovely on GB and simply had to have it. 35Rem, which oddly, I hadn't had one of yet and a scope mount. I think that's why I got it as reasonably as I did, all the holes in the receiver. Anyway, it was easily in the worst internal shape of any of these guns I've come across. Inside the r...

Re: New member and 8 owner

The .25 caliber guns were the least popular, by all accounts, and we're discontinued around 1936, if I remember right. This only makes them that k uch more collectable for us 8 heads. :)

That is one pretty rifle. I think I see in the photo of the left side a dent in the magazine.

I have found that when using 3031 in .25 Rem that the starting charge, 21 grains, does not work the action at all. at 24 grains the action begins to work, but not always, and I get several stovepipe ejection malfunctions. 26 grains makes the action work with zest! I use 25 grains now to not over str...

Shot about 2.5" at 100 yards before the barrel heated up. When it got hot the group went all to hell. Oddly, it preferred the 150 grain round nose over the 160 grain Hornady pointed nosed bullets.

So, I had this Winchester 1894 in .44 Mag that wouldn't hit a barn door from the inside, so off to the little gun show we went. It was the small show, with the big AGCA show next month or so, so I wasn't confident I'd see anything interesting there. Then this happened: http://i19.photobucket.com/alb...
