Nice Model 8 " D Grade " addition....

Post by rem81auto »

I was able to recently add this early D Grade in 25-35 to my collection. I especially like it for the caliber and that this vintage of rifle does not have the magazine side springs giving it a cleaner look. I hope you enjoy the pics. Dennis

Hey Dennis,

Congratualations!!!! Anytime you can add a rifle like this one to a collection,you are doing well. The 25-35 is rare one especially in the Grade D. I like it and you did very well. The wood is fantastic as is the whole rifle. How did you happen to stumble on to this one?

Jack

Gorgeous pre war "D" grade! I really like the wood grain and the low serial number. I think you scored big :D

Indeed. Great snag.
