    Looking at one of these in a local auction in. 35. Don't know much about them. How do folks who have them like them? Things to look out for/problems? The one I'm watching is well used and D/T, so no collectable angle. I've just always wanted a vintage 35 to shoot and possibly hunt with.

    They are GTG.

    Just check GB for an appropriate price to pay. Auctions can get crazy.

    300-400 if the bore is good, they do need to be worked pretty briskly. mine was made 1940 and is also in .35 rem. with 200 gr round nose bullets at 2100 fps is very accuret and deadly on deer and bear.

    The Rem 141 is a classic of fine American gunmaking. I always marvel at the worksmanship of the Remington employees who fitted them together. They look - and are - hand finished..

    I had one that would randomly go off when I chambered a round. I would randomly go off when I was unloading with the safety on. I took it to a gun smith who couldn't fix it. It's history now.

    Great gun. Fun gun. If the price is right go for it. I really have fun with mine, also in .35 Rem.

    I love mine. If I pick up my brass it has a dent in it. Not sure if that is common or not with these. Just something to watch for if you're a reloader.

    OK, add a Savage 1914 slide action .22 to the interested list. Apparently I have a slide action itch at the moment.

    There's nothing much faster in the woods then a well worn in 141. One of my favorite guns, the spiral mag tube is just dieing to be a 7.62x39.

    I have a model 14 in 30 Remington. I have taken 3 deer and several hogs with it using a peep sight that I got with the rifle.. I use mine mostly for still hunting. It was made in 1914. I love it.

    In PA they are known as Amish machine guns. PA, until recently, had always banned semiauto rifles, no matter the caliber. Remington sold a lot of CF pump guns in PA for that reasons. That is starting to change. The Rem 141 has a good reputation in PA, especially in 35 Rem.

    My dad bought his in the early 50’s and passed it down to me, and it will get passed down to my son. It has accounted for a pile of deer.
