Although I have an LASD Model 81, I’m always looking for others. There is a current auction going on GB that contains a Model 81 with the extended magazine. The seller indicates that it is a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dept gun, as it supposedly falls within the serial number range of rifles procured by that agency. However, there are no police agency markings on the rifle, in fact, the standard “Police Gun Property Of” markings are absent as well. A closer inspection of the “Remington” stamp on the receiver, as well as dished screw holes, seem to indicate a refinish of the receiver. I suspect the agency receiver markings may have been removed after the LASD got rid of it. I’ve seen Police 81s without an agency name, but never saw one without the “Police Gun” markings. I’m hoping Cam or some of the other experts can shed some light on this for me. The opening bid is $7999; that’s way too much for a refinished gun IMHO.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.
