pics of my model 8's

Post by iolhippie » Wed Mar 27, 2013 12:00 pm

Here are pics of my three model 8's Top 1906, Middle 1928, Bottom 1929. The 1928 model 8 has a bad safty, it will drop off of safe if the gun is bumped.
Other than that, it looks pretty good. The 1929 model 8 has some rust, like someone with sweaty hands held it and did not wipe the gun down.

They look good iolhippie, your 1906 rifle has that early style safety. I always thought those were the coolest looking Model 8's.

The safety on your '28 gun probably has a broken tab. It can be fixed and/or replaced.

I have a replacement safety handle and a safety arm that I am willing to sell. I think maybe your problem is with the detent ball in the receiver that is not catching the detent holes in the safety arm. I am sure that can be repaired by a compitent gunsmith.

Rob,

How much for the safety parts.

I took the but stock off and could see the safety rocker move inside the receiver. I tried tightening the screw, and that more or less worked, until I moved the safety down (off) then up (on) where it became loose again. All parts work, but it will not stay on safe when rifle is moved.
Also, the operating handle is missing it's guts (the bushing, plunger, and spring). Know where I can get them?

Thanks

The screw does basically nothing. I still think the whole problem is with the detent ball in the receiver. If it is not there or frozen in, it will not catch the indented semicircles in the safety arm. If the ball is still there, it may just be stuck and you can release it with penetrating oil and pushing down on it several times. You can get to it by removing the trigger plate and pushing the safety arm below it. Use a playing card or other protective material between it and the receiver to prevent damage to the receiver. It would be rare for anything to be wrong with the safety arm or the safety lever.

If you are the lucky bidder; I'd like Dibs on the Mag side spring, Mag follower, & barrel sight block, please. I can't afford the additional total right now, perhaps we could work a deal. Private message me if you get the parts.

Rob,

I'll check the ball and see what happens.

Thanks

Phyrbird

$99.00 is a little much right now. I will watch the bidding, and may have to try for it anyway. If so, I'll let you know.

There are some gun shows coming up here in Dallas real soon, maybe I"ll find a mod 8 which is only good for parts. If so, we can
probably deal for what you need.

We'll see.
