Some years ago I bought this rifle. It was in mint condition (should have been a tip off). I bought a couple boxes of ctgs. and took it out to sight it in. Darn that thing kicked. I could have lived with that, but it was a jam o matic. Looking back I think it may have had an extractor for a .35 rem. Anyway I sold it and told the dealer the problems it had. A guy bought it and sent it to a gunsmith that was familiar with this model and he said the chamber was too large.

To this day, I'm still baffeled as to why it kicked so much.

.300 Savage was designed to provide .30-06 ballistics in a shorter action rifle, like a lever gun (the Savage 99) or the Remington.

The Remington 81 is a relatively light rifle, compared to an '03 Springfield or '17 Eddystone.

Powerful round, light rifle. Easy to carry, kicks like a mule.

By the way, I've wanted a Remington 81 in either .300 Savage or .35 Remington for a long time.
