Found this old newpaper article from Old Town Maine about the Model 8.

So what you are saying is that we need to get up to Maine to gun shows and pawn shops? I may get up to VT this spring and if I do, Maine isn't far away......

Maine's a very cool place generally. I imagine that I could walk north into the forest north of Old Town and come out when I hit the tundra, and never run into another person. A little bit of an exaggeration, but not much...

It looks like I will be going to VT this spring and with Maine being so close, I might just "pop" over there and see what I can find in the gun shops. Maybe I'll find some Model 8's...
