Default Old Time Hunters and Their Remington Model 8s

These guys didn't need scopes. Here's old timers using my favorite autoloading rifle of all time. Bottom hunter's gun has a rounded pistol grip. Much more graceful than on my Model 81.

Oh those are great!
I’m in agreement with you, those vintage rifles had graceful lines and beautiful finishes. If you’ve ever shot one with the peep sight, they’re accurate too.

That she is, but I still like the sleeker Model 8 like you probably have just a little better. But it's close. Here's the gun being fired in slow motion for those unfamiliar with them.
