This might be of interest to some Pa guys or lower tier New Yorkers.

Those old Remington 14's were a trim little pump gun. My uncle had a .30 Remington and another buddy has a .32 Remington. I thought that I wanted a .35 Remington brush gun and found a Remington 141 .35, but something changed from when they made the 14 and morphed it into the 141. That rifle was overbuilt and a real chunk of steel to carry around in the woods. That long barrel didn't fit with my brush gun philosophy either, so I was kind of sorry that I bought it.


My other auto is a .45

In the mid-1930s Remington "upgraded" their existing successful rifles, like the 8, 12, 14, and 24, to make them more attractive to potential buyers. They added a "1" to the model designation number to differentiate them.

Giving the 14 a lionger barrel and physically larger wood turned it into the 141. I have owned a few 14s and 141s and agree that the 141s are a little longer and a little heavier than the 14s, but the 141 stock fits me better and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to trim that 24" barrel back to just forward of the magazine tube and reinstall the front sight. John Wooters had a 141 reconfigured in that way. Interesting that Winchester made fewer lever action rifles and more carbines, while Remington went the opposite way with the 14 to 141 configuration chamge. It seems to me that a 141 carbine in 30/32/35 REM would have been more attractive to woods hunters, but Remington has had more than a few marketing/design failures during the past 100 years.

My Model 141 in .35 Rem handles well and wouldn't hesitate to use it.

Just bought my first 7600 with a 22" barrel, had it cut down to 18.5", added a peep sight with a fiber optic front, I will be testing it out in the Northeast this fall - should be fun!

I don't see well enough to chose irons, but the concept is appealing.

I had a 141 .35 Remington that I had the barrel cut back to 18 1/2”, front sight reinstalled, and drilled and tapped for scope mounts. With a Leupold 1.5-5 mounted, this was about the perfect big woods rifle. For some reason I can’t remember, I sold it here on the Campfire. That’s one I regret sending down the road.

I thought the same thing, but I was pleasantly surprised after I put a Williams peep and a red fiber optic front bead on. That front bead is fuzzy, but I can consistently ring a 12 inch gong with my 760 carbine and this combo at 100 yds. That's minute of deer in my book. You should at least give it a try.

I "fixed" my 141 .35 Remington just like Miguel did with a fiber optic front sight and Williams peep. I'd been reading every Benoit tracking book I could lay my hands on since the '70's and figured that 141 would be perfect. After getting a lot of deer for other people still on their stands up ahead, I realized that I was just too clumsy to track down anything and get anything more than exercise. I couldn't beat them, so I joined them on a stand with a scope sighted one and done bolt action. A man has to know his limitations.
