1941 Transitional FBI 81

Post by 81police » Fri Sep 09, 2016 7:59 am

Jack1653 asked me to post this for him.

Some of y'all may have already seen this rifle on gunbroker last month. Our friends at S&S Hunt Club were offering this gun and it sold to forum member Jack1653.

For those who haven't seen the gun, it's very interesting. Without copying & pasting the entire auction description, in a nutshell the gun has an early-type stock & receiver, with a late type barrel assembly (sans the custom "Partridge" front sight). So it's got the double notched barrel jacket indicated the induction heat/brazing process that the FBI required to negate loose jacket/jacket head connections. It is unique and represents the transition from early to late type FBI 81's where Remington was implementing improvements based on the FBI's test reports. For more info on the differences between the two FBI 81's check out the link below.

Hey 81police,

Thanks a bunch for making the posting for me. I was really happy to add this unique rifle to my collection. I was really impressed by the write-up that Bob did for the rifle. I asked Bob for permission to use his write-up so that it could be viewed by members of the forum. I appreciate your efforts to put the salient points in the posting.

The rifle is everything that Bob said it would be. It does show some use by the agency and the wear is what one would expect. Bob did his usual excellent job of completely cleaning the rifle before he takes his pictures for posting on Gun Broker. Thank you Bob for the opportunity to get a vrry unique rifle.

Kindest Regards,

jack1653
