I have a pretty darn nice looking round knob from 1914 in 35 rem with top tang butt plate on it's way as we speak but it will only be my second r...

Re: Remington model 81 F

Here are some pictures of a model 760 F engraving done by Runge in 1976. He certainly improved in detail in the roughly 30 years since he did the 81 F. In the last picture you can see his initials in the rock below the deer. RPR 76 John Taylor

Thanks Luke, Dan, Roger and Cameron for the nice words about the gun. Cameron I agree with you that some of the engraving isn't the best especially the single line borders. I think his scroll work and game scenes are pretty darn good though. I have some other guns done by Runge in his later years th...

Remington model 81 F

This is a new one to me. It was on an auction site recently for a lot of money. I made the guy what I thought was a reasonable offer and he declined. Two weeks later he got back in touch and we made a deal. The 81F isn't perfect by far but it sure is scarce !!! It has a bit of finish loss on the sto...
