I have the 8/81 disease!

Post by pshort » Mon Jun 01, 2009 8:23 pm

Howdy Folks,
I got my first 81 a few months ago.(35 Rem) I went to a gun show in St Cloud, MN this weekend and picked up a nice 8..(Also 35 Rem) According to the "bible", it was the last one made in 1925. The bbl stamp indicates 1926.. Close enough for me... Very nice condition, bluing almost 100%, wood very nice. Also has one of the curved buttstocks. I haven't fired it yet, I need to take it apart for cleaning and lube. I'll check back when I get it out to shoot!
