I have featured this rifle before. Here goes the second round. By far, as sweet as as you can get when it comes to a light powered single shot rifle. The ammo is now somewhat hard to come by due to being obsolite. Thanks to Bishop creek, I can now shoot this one a bit more frequent than I used to. He set me up with a few rounds of Navy Arms ammo that are in perfect shape. You are a good man Mister.
Went over the slope this afternoon and fired off ten rounds, They shoot plenty good out of the tired old bore of the Remington. Felt mighty blessed to not feel so consevative with the rounds that I have on hand thanks to Bishop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She will shoot a fair goup at 35 yards from the kneeling position and a tight one at 25 yards. Would be no problem taking small game with it.
If you have not done so, I give you my word that it is quite a pleasure to shoot one of these old rifles. You can simply feel the nostalgia and history with each round that passes through the bore.
Of interesting note, I found this old girl to foul out in short order due to the rough bore with a smokeless load, just as it would with black bowder, as it does in some of my other original guns that have rough bores. Regardless, it shoots plently good for the first few rounds and fully sufficient for hunting application. As far as occsaional plinking, it takes but a few moments to swab the bore out after 5 rounds and keep up on accuracy.
A neat old rifle it is. I plan to take some kind of critter with it befor I give up the ghost.
