Remington model 25

I saw one of these at my local gun store the other day. Caliber was 25/20. Not in the greatest of shape but not bad. How long ago were these guns made. Any value. had a serial # on top 592c. Neat little rifle. Could not locate any on auction arms or gun broker so any info is appreciated. I like the gun because it is different. Never saw one before. Would it kill a deer at 50 yds

Re: Remington model 25

Remington Model 25/25A were built from 1923-1935
24" barrel, tube magazine.
25-20 WCF or 32-20 WCF
70% = 300.00
95% = 900.00

Also made a model 25R Carbine - similar to 25A with a 18" barrel and straight stock
70% = 600.00
95% = 1000.00

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!
If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

FWIW....I sold a 25R in .25/20 in 95%+ condition at least ten years ago for $1,600.....so much for BB values....

Re: Remington model 25

I have one in perfect condition. Nice walk around hog gun and is sits in my gun cabinet next to the Win 92 also in 25-20.

For varmints I reload 60 grain bullets.

With 86 grain bullets they certainly have killed deer, but not a good deer gun. One of the world record bucks was tken with a 25-20, but I seem to remember 12 shots over 4 hours.

When and when you can hunt turkeys with a rifle, the 25-20 is a nice rifle with open sights up to about 75 yards. These old guns are not really tack drivers like a modern 25-20 barrel would be.

Re: Remington model 25

I liked it beacause its different. they had a price tag of 600 on it and then scratched out to 350. neat little gun. Would make an interesting conversation piece. ammo still available.

Re: Remington model 25

sounds good to me go for it. ammo available but pricey (comes in 50 round boxes).

Re: Remington model 25

$350 is a deal if it functions properly and is not beat up. nice guns. only thing is the 25/20 is pretty weak. as someone said it would be ok for fall turkey but not much else. nice carrying gun. the 25r carbines are really handy but if you can find a decent one for less than a grand you're doing good.
