I have a chance to buy a Rem model 8 in 35 rem. It seems to be barely used the bluing is nice and the barrel looks good. Tehre are some minor scratches and little dings in the wood. The barrel has been tapped for a sling stud. There is also a hole in the reciever right through were it says remington. I'm fine with the price. I was wondering if anyone here had experience with what to look for on one of these guns as far as danger signs. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks S.
