Hello from new member

Post by Kootenay52 » Tue Dec 04, 2018 7:27 pm

Hello everyone...thanks for adding me to the forum.
Attached below is the motivation for joining this forum.
Its date of manufacture was 1910.....so technically it is a Remington Autoloading Rifle. It is in .32 Remington. The previous owner was kind enough to throw in two complete boxes of vintage ammunition....at no extra cost!! These rifles are not as popular in Canada as in the US.....in my opinion. I have seen a few. Most of them are in 35 Rem or 30 Rem. This is the first one in .32 Rem that I have seen. The previous owner said he shot it and it worked fine. I have not shot it yet. Looking forward to advice and direction from the members here.
I like hunting, shooting, reloading, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding......the list goes on...
Thanks, Bill.

Hey Bill,

Welcome to the forum. Always glad to have our brothers from Canada join the group. We have several fellas from Canada that participate.

The stock on your rifle is what we call a flat end pistol grip. You don’t see many of them so you have a unique one. If you take it down for cleaning, check the serial number to see if it matches the one on the receiver. I say this because the stock has been checkered but I don’t believe it is factory checkered. Most of the checkered rifles have a checkered forearm to match. These issues do not affect the functionality of the rifle but are more cosmetic issues.

If you have any questions, please ask and we will try to give answers.

Regards,

jack1653

Thanks for the info Jack......I can only find a serial number on the underside of the receiver and the checkering is indeed not factory. The stock is a bit tired as noted in the pictures.
