Safety inscription

Post by ranman » Mon Dec 19, 2016 9:42 pm

I have three model 8s that do not have the word safe under the lever. The serial number are in the ten, twenty and thirty thousand ranges. I thought only early ones were not marked. Is this common with the total production of the model 8?

Apparently Remington wasn't consistent with this marking. I never looked into this marking until you mentioned it ranman. A quick glance of a handful of rifles on file, found as high as #26299 without "safe", while rifles below and above were marked "safe". It's an odd inconsistency!

The top 8 manufacture date is 1908 serial 104xx in 30-30 rem. Bottom on is 1914 serial 334xx in 35 rem. Both have matching floor plates and no safety inscribed below the lever. These have not been reblued . Maybe both are Monday guns...

Both of mine, 1946 and 1947 Model 81s have "SAFE" under the lever.

My 1910 has safe on it. Also has the crescent butt stock. Could there be a correlation or are the two just random. Sorry pic is upside down
