My first Model 8
Posted: Mon Jun 01, 2015 10:23 pm
I picked up this model 8 recently and scored on finding the 25 Remington as my first model 8. It has what the owner believed was a factory short stock. The LOP is only 12.5 inches. It's a little short but I manage. I am looking for a standard sized buttstock for it but am planning to caribou hunt with it this season. It was made in 1922 and really likes Hornady 117 grain round nose bullets over 3031. I thought it looked right with the pack basket. Some things seem to go together.
