35 Remington

Hey guys, I just got a 35 Remington from another member on here and have a few questions. Fisrt off I have always wanted a 35 Whelan, but they are hard to find, settled on a 30-06 in a 7600 a couple of years ago, then this 35 Remington came up in a 760, so here we are! What are you guys shooting out of them? The gunshop I stopped at only had 1 box of ammo and it was 200 grain cor-loks, so I got them to try out. There is a scope on this gun I would like to take off but the rear sight has been removed and has a filler block in it. Can I get the dove-tailed rear sights to put back in? Any ideas where? There isn't many gunshops here in western Pa that have an actual gunsmith!
Thanks guys.

Re: 35 Remington

Long time ago when I shot factory ammo i liked the rem's over the winny's.
Handloading I use the 200gr core lokts and speer 180's but
I like the 200gr core lokts better.
This is of course out of a pair of 336's and not a 760.
I do not know if they have the rear sight but this is where i'd look first

Re: 35 Remington

Third vote for the core-lokts, they perform the best put of that particular caliber.

Re: 35 Remington

The gun show in Monroeville and Washington usually have at least one exhibitor who deals in nothing but odd and end misc parts and sights like you're talking about. I wouldn't guarantee they'd have it but it'd be worth a shot.

Re: 35 Remington

You can get the rear sight from Remington.

But there are lots of sights available for the 760. You might like the ones that go into the rear scope holes and are a receiver sight with and aperature. In PA most guys screw out the apperature and use them as a Ghost sight.

If the rear sight is dovetailed you have an early m760. if you want an exact replacement try: Ken Bean 'The Sight Man' 383 Yorkana Rd. York PA 17406 He has a display at the bigger gun shows like Tarantum(probably the guy Kudu referred to).

Re: 35 Remington

I'm going to give Ken Bean a call, I can't find a dovetailed rear sight on gunbroker or even the Remington site.

Re: 35 Remington

i use 200 grain corelokts in all my 35's. they are deer hammers and very accurate. i have them in model 14, 141, 760, 7600, and marlin 336 and they shoot good in all of them. for an original rear site, check ebay and also go over to remingtonsociety.com and check there.
