Kind of a feeler out post to see how the membership feels about these old school ( early 1900s semi auto rifles )

I have had about half dozen vintage models in my collection thru the years and am thinking of parting ways with them

Not sure listing them on the EE here would spark alot of interest ... ? Maybe - maybe not ?

This thread might sway me one direction or the other

Don't sell them, you'll regret it later.

There is a few of us that have one on here.

This one was dad's Model 81 in .300 Savage rifle he used since 1949 I believed. I've never hunted with it but shot it a few times in the 90's.

ETA: Any pics of yours?

I'd love a Model 8 in .35 Remington.

1 of them is a .300 savage

I think the calibers of my 7 rifles are:

Two .35 Rem
one .25 Rem
one .32 Rem
one .30 Rem
one .300 savage

And 1 of the rifles looks exact like a Remington model 8 - But I am pretty sure its a Browning FN model in 30-30

Geesh ... I cant even remember how to load pics on this new format

I am obviously too 'low tech' for the new modern Arf.com EE

I would love to have one in 35 REM!

This. I've wanted a .35 Remington for years. Gander in WV had two--one .35, one .300--but the prices were stupid high, especially for the condition they were in.

I know FN made them before Remington, wonder how many/what calibers ended up stateside? Remember a friend who didn't know his guns bitching about a bad guy using one in 'Ride the High Country' (takes place in 1909, IIRC).

List them on the EE, there are a few guys here that collect them.
If prices are reasonable they'll sell quickly.
Link Posted: 8/6/2017 10:46:10 AM EST
Put them on the EE and see what happens.

OP, are yours listed on Gunbroker (just saw a couple listed from Washington)?

Looks like a nice-ish one goes for about $599. That's about $200 less then the beat to shit ones I saw at Gander Mountain.

Someone in Cali has a police model, bids starting at 8K.

not yet, but am considering it

May list a few here EE to test the waters

Right now I am frustrated as I cannot load a stinkin pic into a simple thread

Embarassing as I know how to do it - yet its not working

Saved files already in arf load up fine

Yet when I try to load a new file into arf it will not show ?



above is already save on arf - and loads just fine

Here is a model 8 jpeg pic that will not load - WTF ?

Neat old rifles. I have a model 8 in .35 remington that was made on 1906....still kills hogs quite dead.
Link Posted: 8/6/2017 11:03:38 AM EST
Headed back to the TV and the remote

Obviously anything more advanced than that and I am out of my league

Oh man!
My grandfather had a Remington model 8/81 (cannot recall which, it's been years) in .35rem that he carried and used deer hunting. I believe it was my first center fire rifle shot by me.
Would love to find one to rekindle those memories.
Link Posted: 8/6/2017 11:14:57 AM EST
Unless you need the money right now, or these aren't in very good condition, I'd hang on to them.
If they are in less than desirable condition, people do seem to be paying too much for them now, which could be to your advantage.
IMO early, great condition ones, will keep their value, no matter what.
Even though the 25 cal. ones are harder to find, most people seem to want the 35 Remington models, because the ammo is still widely available, and it's a good deer cartridge.

Hamer's gun at the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame. That's what prompted me to buy mine although I wish I had the extended magazine too.

I have. 30 Rem dies and brass. I loaded a bunch for a buddy who inherited a pump rifle in that caliber.

wait for "The Son" to get a through another season and prices should go up (bronson carries a winchester but other characters carry the model 8) krags, wsl, remington 8's should see a gain in popularity - everyone wants a lewis gun right?

neat old rifle but damn if that long recoil action doesn't increase felt recoil

I have an old Model 8, 30 Rem built in the teens. If that's the case I may have to dig mine out.

I shot it once, and put it in the safe. That was about 12 years ago, LOL.

The old crescent buttplates aren't comfortable on the shoulder

I love long recoil guns. Very cool to fire. 
Link Posted: 8/22/2017 12:24:49 PM EST
Yea the model 8 forum is a ghost town

I listed 1 of the .35 rem cals on Gunbroker and it sold for a fair price ( $550 )

The other 6 rifles are in much better condition than the 1st I sold so I am guessing $600-800ea approx ?

Have another listed on GB right now. Seems like all the bidding is final minutes.

Hopefully get a fair price out of the .32 Rem calibre I have listed there

we shall see ..........

Very cool guns but I would not post them here unless you enjoy constant bumping. Match your product to your audience. Really good deals on stuff the membership doesn't care about at all stagnates on the EE daily but sells like gangbusters on sites that focus more on that sort of thing.

That said I don't think those are all that much money anyway.
Link Posted: 8/22/2017 12:37:39 PM EST
I want one, I just don't want to deal with finding ammo.

Designed by JMB. If I recall correctly, it unsuccessfully competed with the Garand design for the SA MBR requirement.

Anyone ever find a stripper clip that can substitute for the remington stripper? I have one that works, and it isn't remington.

Not in as good as shape as others in this thread, but I enjoy it along with another early semi-auto.





Nothing wrong with the EE here, but I think you'd be better off selling it on gunbroker if you have a decent number of sales with a good rating.
