    I'll try not to pester, just hope this is interesting trivia :) Was wondering if anyone could please tell me what this one is? I don't have any clues. If you are familiar with any of the other ones I posted, and they are the same one, that would help to point out to me, thanks again to the person who did that before.

    Actually, it is the later Remington Model 81, based on the pistol grip instead of straight. Made 1936 - 1950, with, of course, time out for WW II.
    The Weaver 2.5 or 3X scope in Williams side mount makes it a good hunting rifle but will reduce collector value.

    Yes, Remington 81, with a scope. In the Northeastern US they're extremely popular and relatively expensive, average value runs $400 for a worn example, up to perhaps $600 for a nice one with a telescopic sight installed, and the average obviously running around $500.

    They come in a variety of calibers, and it should be marked on the barrel which cartridge it is meant to use.

    Interestingly, the safety lever on the right side actually inspired the designers of the AK-47, who copied the feature.

    I like seeing pictures of firearms, show any more you have and ask questions, most will not mind.

    I actually have one of these in .30 Rem (and he is right, it is an 81)

    Isnt this one of the weapons that influenced the AK47?, Look at the dust cover/safety lever area.
