We had one of those when I was growing up. After my folks died, my oldest brother glomed it, then his outlaw kid sold it for booze/drugs.

Bastard!

And yes, very accurate! Ours never was scoped - killed many hundreds of rabbits, some squirrels, a few pheasants, and at least one deer.

I'm jealous, both of the gun and where the cabin is! I love that area of Pennsylvania.

Hatari and I and our spouses were up for the weekend as well. Truly a cool place. This is the larger cabin the big family group owns. Built in 1902 it's in the process of a major rehab with more lodging in the attic level, new HVAC and kitchen and a whole lot of upgrades. Next is re-chinking (racist! grin ) and blasting it with media to clean up the creosote. It's great now and will be amazing when done. Always nice of Jorge to have us up. We did a fair amount of shooting.

Rem 121, I love mine, produced in 1958.

If it has lost any accuracy in that time, I can't tell it.

OK you guys,

quit with the "cabin" labeling. If it's got any sort of "HVAC" system it surpassed the cabin stage a long time ago. One might even consider it to have passed cabin stage when it was electrified.

Y'all are as bad as some of them folks with "deer camps" that are more decked out than some fancy lodges I've been in. grin

Looks like a beautiful camp and I know the area is beautiful. Gun ain't bad either.

Enjoy

Beautiful old rifle. I wish some of the old rifles were still being made. Not many new rifles could shoot with them today without a lot of work.
