I used to own an 881 when I was teenager, absolutley loved this little rifle but thought it would be cooler to own a semi-auto, so I sold the 881 and bought a 60.

20 years later I am absolutley regretting that decision, I now have 2 daughters and I would like them to learn to shoot with a bolt and not a semi so I have been looking everywhere for an 881 without ANY luck at all.

I own an 883 and the 881 would look so nice next to it as they are basically the same gun just chambered differently, these guns have a beautiful stock!

I also would like the 881 because it is tube fed and this means that there is no mag to loose as the little ones are walking around with dad.

I have my heart set on finding an 881 and would sure hope someone might point me in the right direction.. thanks guys.

PS.. Awesome sight here, been doing alot reading!

881 was only made for about a decade. Broaden your search to include 781 or 81 and you will improve your chances. Pretty much the same rifle with the safety reversed.
