The gun that became the Remington Model 8 was a fully-realized semi-automatic rifle capable of reliably cycling powerful centerfire cartridges. Originally introduced as the Remington Autoloading Rifle in 1906, the name was changed to the Remington Model 8 in 1911, even though the rifle itself was essentially unchanged. The John Browning-designed Model 8 rifle uses the same long-stroke recoil operating system as its contemporary, the Auto-5 shotgun. Four unique rounds for the Model 8 were introduced: the 35 Remington, the 30 Remington, the 32 Remington, and the 25 Remington. These calibers were more powerful than the typical hunting rounds of the era and led to the Model 8's reputation as a rifle perfectly designed for close-quarters, life-and-death encounters with large predators. This rifle features a fixed front sight, an elevation adjustable rear sight, an aftermarket rear tang sight, and a 2-position safety. Its wood and bore are in good condition and its metal is in fair condition.
