Model 8 Gunsmith?

Post by oldbowyer » Mon Dec 30, 2019 9:05 pm

Hey all,
I've had a Model 8 in 35 for several years now but have been able to shoot it only a few times as I live and work on a Navy Base in the Bahamas and my home is in NC. I am having a weak/no ejection issue and unfortunately I am not in a position to work on it. The rifle is in great shape otherwise and wonder if anyone can recommend someone to work on this for me?

Thanks for the help!
Jeff

Sorry oldbowyer, I do not know any specific 8/81 gunsmith. However, if you find a gunsmith that's well versed with Remington M11 or Browning A5 shotguns, those are pretty close mechanically.
