new to me checkered m-8A

Post by Roger » Fri Aug 12, 2016 5:52 pm

Hey guys,
I just finished negotiations on a factory checkered rem m-8A. It will be coming from a friend of mine in Connecticut, who is just as serious as most of us on the forum, about Rem8/81s. I have purchased several rifles from him in the past. He's very trustworthy. He emailed me a bunch of pics and it is just what I've been looking for , for several years now. It's a first year production 30 rem. Straight grip with the correct hard rubber buttplate and correct wood cheeks on the stock. It is not engraved caliber on the barrel extension. It is also not 30/30 rem. marked on the barrel extension. Seems out of sequence but who knows. It looks legit for sure in the photos. In fact it is in great condition.
If I can figure out how to forward these photos to someone, maybe they can be posted for everyone to see it. I'm excited to get to see it when it arrives in Iowa. He said the bore is good too,so it may shoot well too.
Thanks for your time,
Roger
