New 81 Owner

Post by PraiseKEK »

Just picked up an 81 at the Oaks gun show so I figured I would join and lurk this board for helpful hints and suggestions ;)

It's a .35 Remington. Apparently it's a super late model with a 56800 range serial number and a DWW date code. Only issue is someone drilled and tapped it for a weaver mount :( I'm not a hunter but I always found these to be amazing mechanical engineering specimens and for $400 i figured it would make a great addition to my collection

400 is a steal! More pics, if you please. :D

Nice clean looking 81! With the prices these guns are starting to draw and from what I have seen at gun shows in the last year its a steal alright. As time goes by running down a mount and a period scope for it can be a bit of fun. I did this with my first 81 and enjoy shooting it just for fun. 8-)

I did find a correct weaver sidemount at the shop I work at sitting back behind a bunch of other old weaver mounts. Still has the pricetag from the 90's of 14.99. I hid it for now and just put mushroom plugs in the screw holes
