Have you looked at Gunbroker? There are always some for sale there. I have a Model 8 you might be interested in. It is chambered in 35 Remington. It is a nice one, wood and metal are very good. I had not thought about selling it. It would be in the $800 range I think.

MinnesotaDan, Did you ever sell your Model 8 for $800 range?
