The Last Model 8 ????

Many have wondered "what was the very last Model 8 produced"? Although we may never know, this gun is a strong possibility.

This rifle was a presentation gun given to retiring Remington salesman, J.W. Speight, from a Remington sales branch. Serial 65xxx is a "C" grade, factory chambered in 300 Savage (not offered in the Model 8). The receiver inscription suggests it was manufactured and presented in 1939 (during Model 81 production).

Although there are Model 8's with higher serial numbers, this unique gun was likely built from a leftover receiver & parts. Very cool!
