Hello from tennessee. Bought my first model 8 about a week ago. 1907 .35 rem. I'm hooked and already found a model 81 in .300 savage. I have questions about reloading if any one could help I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance, Schofield

Nice! I am new here as well. Did you find yours locally? 35 remington seems to be a sought after chambering in these rifles.

Found mine from an individual in Utah. Just got in from shooting it. Somehow I shot a 5/8 in group with the open sights the other day but can't seem to repeat that. Most groups are about 2 to 2 and 1/4 inches but I'm working on that. Got a 300 Savage Model 81 coming in about a week, can't wait.

I literally just won an auction for my first one. Sort of an accidental click. One of those click first, looked closer later things. If I don't go back to work soon I may go broke for more than one reason, lol. Mine's a bit of a fixer upper I think. We'll see when it comes in. I wish I was aware of these rifles earlier. I've been a fan of the Model 11 for a long time. Never realized there was a rifle counterpart more or less.

Wow, now THAT is a collection! that's a life time of collecting I'd imagine. I'll be excited to get mine in. I know at a minimum I'm going to have to figure out the magazine. It was setup for a removable magazine but no magazine comes with it. I'll make sure to put up some pictures and get experienced eyes to look it over.

Welcome Schofield! And yes, watch out for symptoms of "Jackitis" it strikes fast and as you can see is unrelenting! Any uncontrollable urge to buy more and more 8/81/FN 1900's around here is referred to as "Jackitis"! :mrgreen:
