Hello everyone

Post by gramps35 » Fri Apr 10, 2009 6:32 pm

I was told about this site by Hardrada55 over vintage semi autorifle and thought I'd check it out.

I recently inherited my grandfathers old Model 8. It's in real nice condition.

I want to learn more about it. The serial number is 149xx. It's the .35 Remington version as well. The action is well worn and smooth, but no cracks that I can see. The stock is in perfect shape too, nothing more than two small dings.

I'm just waiting for a nice weekend so I can go to the range and see what she can do.

Gramps35,

Welcome to this "sister" forum. I'm glad you came over here too. Lots of us vintage Remington "loonies" here and lots of great information.
