Question on 35 Remington

My neighbor gave me her father's old 35 Remington Gamemaster. I don't know much about these guns and was wondering if anyone could give me some background. It is a pump with a tube magazine. The end of the tube has like spiral grooves in it. The thing looks to be in awesome shape. She gave it to me because she said that I have been really good to her and her husband and very respectful to them. I told her that she and her husband have done more for my brother and myself by giving us a place to hunt. I got a little tearful when she gave it to me because I knew it belonged to her father. Well enough of my rambling, if you have any info it would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Question on 35 Remington

Sounds like you got a Remington model 141 or a model 14..either way send me your address and phone number and I'll be down to pick it up and we'll negotiate a little deal price..say $100.00 or so..no need for you to have that ole' timer with that big ole' fat slow bullet, completely out of date these days.

Re: Question on 35 Remington

They never much appealed to me when I was a kid, but a neighbor managed to kill a deer almost every year with his M141, handed down from his grandpap.

He used to grumble that his wife wouldn't let him buy a "better" deer rifle, because he already had one. My dad asked him once, how much "better" a rifle he needed, since he'd been pretty lucky with that old corkscrew? Dad also liked to heckle him about bein' hen pecked, too.

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.

Don't listen to Dasher. He's trying to rip you off. That gus is worth at least $110. He should be ashamed of himself. I'll be down to pay you the real value for it tonight. If you have any ammo I'll throw in an additional $2.00 for it.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Question on 35 Remington

'Cause you don't have an old Gamemaster to dangle and bring out the best in them, most likely?



Or didja mean the part about neighbors that'd give ya such an esteemed prize?

Re: Question on 35 Remington

If it's a Model 14 I think they stopped making them in 1927. I have seen people shooting them at the range. They shoot real nice. I have seen them from $323.00 to $520.00. Now the $323.00 I purchased that one because I knew it was a good deal...Neat gun for sure.. Hope to shoot a few deer with mine too. Ejoy it...They are a nice looking gun....
I do remember getting a phone call from one of the farmers that I hunt predators on his land. He said he had something to give me. Of course right away you start thinking gee I hope he gives me an old 222 or something like that..It was not a gun...but it was a carved fox that he made for me. That was nice too... It's neat when farmers or people think of you and give you something for hunting on their lands...I put it in the place of honor in the livingroom..
