Neat old rifle

So after having my C&R for over a month, I was itching to find something to use it for. I needed to visit the guys at the local shop anyway, so I jumped in the 'deuce (had to show it off:D) and headed down. Anyway, after milling around awhile and BS-ing with the guys, one of them mentioned that an interesting piece had come in on consignment. He pointed me to it and I was immediately intrigued. As many others here, I have a thing for old guns. Even more so, I have a thing for old, wierd guns. Well, it seems that just about anything designed by John Pedersen falls squarely both categories. So being the sucker I am, I went ahead and grabbed this reblued but otherwise near-perfect Remington model 14 in .32 Rem.

Personally, I think it is a neat find. That said, it took me an hour of screwing with it and finally digging up the original patent drawings to figure out that the elevator was not malfunctioning; it must have a cartridge to operate:banghead:. I ordered brass and bullets from Buffalo arms last week and got them loaded tonight. Planning to fire off a few rounds tomorrow. Will post a range report.

Very neat piece...I have never seen one in person. Do have a remington model 51 in .380 thats a Pederson design, though....

I bet it looks a lot like this:

Truly fantastic little firearms. It is probably the one old pistol I own that I would actually carry concealed. And what a pleasant shooter.

Nice find. How much did you pay? I have one in 25 rem but it needs some serious work. Its pretty much all surface rust and some rust in the slide. Do you know where to find disassembly instructions? Thanks

MachIVshooter- :D Thats the one. Mine is the same vintage as yours, with the 9 slide serrations. Nice photo. They sure are neat pistols, aren't they? I would carry mine except that it belonged to my granddad and looks new. Never has a more comfortable to hold pistol been made, IMO.

$230. I think I did pretty good on that one.

NOt disassembly instructions, per se, but here's a link to the original patent drawings:Pedersen patent (http://patimg2.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=1&docid=US000963171&IDKey=6677819F0101%0D%0A&HomeUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetacgi%2Fnph-Parser%3FSect1%3DPTO1%2526Sect2%3DHITOFF%2526d%3DPALL%2526p%3D1%2526u%3D%25252Fnetahtml%25252FPTO%25252Fsrchnum.htm%2526r%3D1%2526f%3DG%2526l%3D50%2526s1%3D0963171.PN.%2526OS%3DPN%2F0963171%2526RS%3DPN%2F0963171)

You need TIFF software to view, which is downloadable from the same site.

Never has a more comfortable to hold pistol been made, IMO. I must agree with you on this. The model 51 has such a natural feel that it just becomes an extension of the hand.
