    What is the model number of the Rem auto rifle that has the really fat barrel? I think there was a sleeve over the barrel, .35 rem cal.. Was it made in other than .35 Rem?

    I hunt with an 81 in 35rem with lyman peep sight. Great rifles and built like a tank.

    My understanding is that Texas Ranger Captain Frank Hamer and other Rangers used model 8's in .35 Remington to ambush Bonnie and Clyde.

    Some early WW I pilots used model 8's before their aircraft were equipped with machine guns.

    Within say 125 yards, the 200 grain .35 Remington is a potent cartridge for soft skinned game. Buffalo Bore offers a 220 grain jacketed flat nose that has a MV of over 2200 fps and 2300 ft. lbs. of energy. Probably has very heavy recoil as the 200 grain Remington PSP Core Lokt at 2080 fps lets you know when you touch one off.

    This gun looks to be in fine condition.
    Model 8 ( 1906-1936) 25,30,32, & 35 Rem.
    Model 81 , Woodsmaster (1936-1950) 30,32,35 Rem. & 300 Savage
    I am not sure whether this is Model 8 or 81.
    Have we clarified this ??

    I used a model 81 woodsmaster in 300 savage for mule deer and antelope one year. I liked the rifle but at the end of the day wished it had wheels. Sam
