    Item: Remington Model 8
    Location: NW Houston
    Ship: Yes, FREE to buyer
    Payment: Cash, USPS Money Order

    Up for sale is a Remington Autoloading Rifle; this model later became known as the Model 8. It is chambered in .30 Remington. This example was produced in 1908. Bluing is about 60% (receiver is 95%, barrel shroud about 30%) and the wood, while worn, is in good condition for being over 100 years old. I have shot it; the barrel is a bit sticky and should be taken apart to be cleaned. The action is solid.

    The rifle comes with 32 rounds of ammo + 1 spent case. Ammo for this rifle is scarce and costs about $3 per round. Buffalo Arms is the only ammo manufacturer that I know of that produces this ammo, and they only make it from time to time. RCBS does make dies for .30 Remington (cannot use .30-30 dies).

    I considered it but will have to pass Arrggh! If I'd been closer I couldn't have resisted! Good luck with your sale.
