Looks good I'd like to have a 25 rem in a model 14. Got lucky last Friday and scored a model 25 in 25-20. Good luck on brass...mb

I’ve seen 300 Savage and .35 Remington’s in those 8’s and 81’s, but never a .25 Remington. No wonder it took you 50 years! I consider myself lucky to even have a factory loaded .25 Remington cartridge in my collection.


My other auto is a .45

Very nice! A 14 in 25 Rem is one of my grail rifles. I've seen a bunch in 30 and 35 over the years and a couple in 32, but none in 25.

Don't think you will either Windfall in an 81. Originally in the 8 it was chambered for the 25,30,32, and 35 remington's. When it evolved to the 81 the 25 was dropped and I believed they added the 300 savage at that time..mb

There's an old western from the late 1950'd to maybe early 1960s called "Ride the High Country." One of the bad guys has either A Remington #1 or #81. Never got a real good look but am inclined to think it was the #8.

I originally saw it with my girl friend of the time in a sneak preview. Thought it was fair movie but saw it again later when it was part of a four western movie DVD. I like it a lot more now than back them I might just watch it again tonight if I find time. You might want to look it up.

Great old rifle there. What velocity was the .25 Rem. originally loaded at?

Big advantage over the 25-35 (in lever guns) is being able to use spitzer bullets.

I've got an version in 35Rem. It's an early rifle I believe 1907 date. There's no model number on the rifle just caliber designation. Mine isn't in great condition in the finish dept but functional. My complaint of those old rifles are those awful Cresent butt stocks.

Very cool rifle. I have owned them in 30 and 35 Remington, but have only ever seen one in 25 Remington. It was in such horrible condition that I was not even tempted to buy it. Congratulations your find.


Always remember that you are unique, just like everyone else.
