I don't exactly understand your post, but when I was shopping for my Model 81 I got a call from a fellow about my interest in these guns, he said How many do you have. I said one Model 8, and one Model 81. Oh, he said I have over 200. He was interested in how much I paid for the 81, and was critical of my spending, saying he never paid more than a couple hundred for any of his.

Hi Richard, Just back from vacation and picked up a Model 8 at the local gun shop in 35 Rem, so add that to the total.

One 35 cal model 8 SN 293xx. 1914 I was told. Came in a break down canvas/leather case. Came from the UP-Mich with a 16 Ga L.C Smith 1911, which I used for Turkey in KY last spring---21.5 lb gobbler. I've never shot the Mod 8, and am considering giving it to my 21 year old grandson who lives in Southern ME. Jim...

The family and our friends had 11 Model 8's and one Model 81 circa 1952.

I have three of them and know where two others are located.

Shoot straight!!

Shoot and hunt regularly with an 8 in 35 Rem (1909) and an 81 "C" in 300 Sav (1947).
