Great collection of auto loaders. Great blue and cheeks now those are fine examples of how things use to be made.

A nice set of rifles that shows some of the nice features. Could be a touch of jackitis setting in. Keep up the collecting.

Regards,

We had two other Model 81's. For some reason we kind of lost interest and I had listed them here: A Model 81 in .35 Rem. that was pretty nice, and a Model 81 .300 Savage that had the wood checkered. The WTS listing didn't seem to generate a lot if interest so we decided to keep them, but then out of the blue I received an inquiry on the .35. Well we have the 8-C in .35 so my brother decided to sell it. Then we showed our friend that we shoot with the .300 and he now has that one. Now I wish we had kept the 81 in .35.

I browse eBay looking for gun parts, not just for these rifles but 1911, Colt parts etc. So one day a complete .32 Remington barrel assembly is listed for a real friendly BIN price, so I snagged it. So I figured I'd look for a .30 Rem. but decided on a .25, and found one. Oh boy I thought a combo barrel set, which turned out to be more of a hassle then anticipated at the range. Bullet selection for the 32 is dismal to say the least and we have a Winchester 94 .32 Special, so after exchanging messages with another eBay member who was looking for a .30 Remington barrel I offered him my .32 barrel assembly and dies, which he bought.

Then I see the listing for the M 8 .30 Remington with the replacement wood and it had the Redfield receiver sight, and because I had put a Redfield on the .25 I just had to have it. The 8-C was our Father's and has been in the family since we were small. The 81 in the photo we found at a gun show on our way out the door, and the price was okay, so we brought in home.

That’s a great collection!

Your collection is basically what I’m going for, have the 25 & 35 now. I’m on the hunt for a Model 8 in 30 & 32 rem and a 81 in 300 sav.
