    Remington Model 8, 32 Remington Caliber

    I have an opportunity to buy a Remington Model 8, in caliber .32 Remington.
    Cool old gun but I know very little about it.
    If anyone has info they could pass along it would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    is a good starting point. The references at the end of the page will take you on a time travel trip.

    Cool old rifles-but scoring brass isn’t easy even in good times which these are not.

    Very cool rifles...one of the most unique actions out there for a semi-auto, and one of the first at that. Brass is readily available, although you can expect to pay about a buck a piece new. I have one in 30Rem and absolutely love it. It's smooth, feeds well, trigger is surprisingly not bad, and it's reasonably accurate. For the right price....I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another one!

    Good website here..... LOTS of information on one really cool John Browning design!!

    Thanks a lot guy for the help.
    What would be a reasonable price for this rifle? It appears to be in pretty good condition, has 90% bluing, no rust, bore is bright and good rifling, no cracks in the stock although could use a refinish.
    The seller is asking $480 for it. Good price or not?

    As described I would consider that a very fair price. YMMV.... I'm a big fan of the 8/81, others not so much, so I'm sure opinions on price will vary. FWIW -- I paid a bit more for mine in 30Rem a few years back, in seemingly similar condition, and have no regrets!

    If it has the tang sight, then jump on it!!

    Thanks much guys for the advise. I think I'm going to buy it from the older gentleman that has it.
    I'll post a picture of it when I get it.
