Hello from Coffeyville KS

Post by Louie »

Hello to you all.
Just bought my first Model 8 at an auction Saturday. Am trying to buy some ammo (35) and have no luck, seams everybody is out of stock or wants $40.00 a box of 20. Is this ammo in short supply or is it that they don't make much of it? I found one box of it today from an old man who lives here today, the price was $19.75 just what is a fair price in todays market? The rifle has some issues, it has what I call matting on one side of the receiver and barrel tube, have tried steel wool with some oil, but you can still feel it with a finger. I think it should reblued but that could be costly. Other than that the gun is fine. This model 8 was made first year production 129xx. Also the rear sight is real hard to pick-up on, not like some others I have seen. :D

Yes, hi, how are you?

Nice to have you here.

I could be wrong but I think first-year production total was only 4 digits in serial number.

You bought a box of (20?) .35 Remington for less than $20.00? You did EXCEEDINGLY well there.

Pics, we need pics.
