    Nice Gun! That looks like the same side mount scope on my 1953 336SC. It too sports a Weaver K 2.5

    Rookie report part 3 continued - thegreatmodel8.remingtonsociety.com

    Tried that - just my experience, but the Winchoke didn't work for me. It was too flimsy (or I was too ham handed)

    Wisco I ended up making one out of air grinders chuck wrench. Worked well for this rifle, it has been apart within the last few years. Not rust or damage internally, no damage to barrel nut or bushing. Disassmbly of the receiver today. Bore and chamber in excellent condition.

    Well after disassembly it doesn't look like today is going to be a range day for the 81. Broken firing pin. On order along with a few other parts for a 39, 56 and 14.

    OLSKOOL - That one's in really nice shape! Mine was a real basket case when I got it. Didn't pay much for it, but I had to replace the stock and forend (both cracked). There was a fair amount of pitting on the receiver and barrel - looked like someone put it away wet. Anyway, I cleaned it up as best as I could and did a Duracoat finish. All in all, it came out okay for my purposes - not a pro job by any means.
