Hello from Indiana

Post by rcb »

I just "discovered" these rifles somewhat recently. I am a long time fan of the Model 11 browning shotguns but never happened across an 8 or 81. In my searches I came across this site and of course, had to join. Thanks for having me.

Welcome!!! You're in for a good time if you've got an 8/81 in your collection!

I've heard of this. It sounds very serious and expensive to treat. :D

Requires repeated infusions of gun oil, powder smoke, :lol: and be aware from personal experience there is no cure or remission, only a fear you might miss THE one. :oops:
Then a period of restoration fever. With complications of 0.00% gunsmiths that will do quality work. :twisted: :twisted:
Finally one throws up hands and starts looking for THE one. :arrow: :arrow: :mrgreen:
