Re: Question on 35 Remington
Really a very good rifle. It is the father of the Remington 760 and 7600. the 35 Remington is more than enough for any game in Pennsylvania (deer and bear).
It shoots heavy bullets so it starts to drop after about 150 yards, but would kill at much longer range with proper sight-in.
the gun shoould have a brass shell case head on the side of the receiver, sort of classy.
that spiral tube is like that so that the point of one round in the tubular magazine doesn't bear on the primer of the shell ahead of it.
these guns were slick and fast handling. the actions only get smoother the longer you use it. Most did not have sling swivels, but you can add them easy enough.
Congratulations nice gun, and you can use it and think of the memories of the former owner when you take it for a walk in the woods.
