Does anyone here have first-hand experience with this rifle? I saw one at a local gun shop last week in .35 Rem in absolute mint condition. The price was around $475, iirc. Thanks.

Designed by John Pedersen, the Model 14 was a solid rifle. It was meant to compete with contemporary lever actions like the Marlin, Winchester 94, and Savage 99. The 35 Remington cartridge is the best one to have and a mint condition one for that price is a steal.

The gun is difficult to mount a scope on without ruining the value. If you intend to use it to hunt, you might want to consider a peep site. Don't try to disassemble the gun beyond the initial takedown feature. It's a pain in the behind to get back together. My 30 Remington model 14 is a jewel. Traded it for another Pedersen design, the Model 51 pistol. Check out the following Wikipedia articles I wrote in part or whole. I'm asams10.
