Offered in this lot is a fine example of one of Americas very first high-powered, semi-automatic, self loading rifles - A Remington Model 8, in the desirable .35 Remington caliber. The Mod. 8 was introduced in 1906, and became an instant success with hunters, lawmen, and outlaws alike. In 1934 Texas Ranger, Frank Hamer used a Remington Model 8, chambered in .35 REM to gun down famous outlaws Bonnie Parker, and Clyde Barrow. This particular rifle features a five round internal magazine, a high-grade walnut stock, and fore-grip, original buckhorn rear sight, with a correct Lyman Blade/Bead front sight, and a 22" round barrel, which utilizes a "Long Recoil Operated" action. The Model 8 was designed with practicality, and transport in mind; the screw on the fore-grip, which appears to be a sling swivel, is actually a take down screw, remove the fore-grip, and spin the exposed take-down lever, and the barrel easily detaches from the receiver for compact transport. This rifle is marked in numerous places, reading; "Manufactured By The Remington Arms CO. Illion N.Y. U.S.A. - Browning's Patents OCT. 9. 1900. OCT. 16. 1900. JULY 3. 1902" on the top of the barrel infront of the rear adjustable buckhorn sight, Serial Number: "F - 24299 - K" on the bottom of the receiver, and "35 REM." on the bolt. The hard rubber butt-plate also shows good, intact condition, showing the "Remington Arms CO." Plaque. The firearm is also professionally etched on the receiver with the name of the original owner "W. F. Howe". Overall, the 108 year old rifle shows good condition, with a tight and smooth action, high grade walnut accessories, factory filled optional rear tang screw, and good finish on the barrel. As well, the bore shows good condition. The rifle qualifies as a Curio & Relic firearm, and requires FFL Transfer or NICS Background Check. Serial Number: 24299.
