Hello. I’m a new member here and figured I should post a couple pictures.

Here is my standard grade 8 in 35 Remington. It’s not bad shooting offhand. Let me tell you what, it’s a bear off the bench! It’s sports a handful of years of honest wear but functions just fine. I haven’t shot either past 25 yards yet. The 35 is definitely a good shooter, I put 5 out of 6 shots into one big ragged hole.


Second is my round knob pistol gripped standard grade in 25 Remington. It’s been refinished at some point in its life by a competent smith “in my opinion”. It’s sports a crescent butt plate that threw me off some. I’m not saying the Model 12 butt plate was put on at the factory but imagine it took skilled hands to fit properly. In the deal made with the rifle I received a very generous amount of brass, dies and some loaded cartridges. The 25 is a dream to shoot, it’s a matter of adjusting the front sight and getting used to the peep that I must do now.

Welcome, Nice Ladies. I like the top toe buttplates too.
