Re: Remington Model 14 Pump
I have a Model 14 in 32 Rem. The later ones were called the 141. Actually, I will be hunting my first PA hunting season with that little 14 in 32 Rem. Anyways, they are fine hunting rifles. Very, very well made. If I were to get another one, I would get one in 35 Rem. The ammo is easy to find if you donít hand load. They also did not come drilled and tapped for a scope unless done afterwards. If it was drilled for a scope, you probably can get one a lot cheaper because any collector interest is gone and it is just a shooter. If you get one that isnít drilled and tapped, I recommend getting an aperature sight that sits on the back of the receiver. That will work a whole lot better than using the open sights.
Good luck. Again, I will be trying my luck with mine this fall hunting in PA for the first time. I know that there is a little disadvantage in using this rifle over some of my other modern scoped guns. However, I have been reading here on this forum that there is a big deer population problem in 2G anyways, so I might as well make it nostalgic if I am not going to see anything. If I want to get a deer for sure, I can always go to Michigan for a long weekend. It is just not about the deer to me anymore.
All the best,
