2-Gun Action Challenge: Remington Model 8
For this month’s 2-Gun Action Challenge Match, I decided to shoot my Remington Model 8, in .300 Savage. It’s a semiauto sporting rifle designed by John Browning, which went into production in 1906. It’s a long-recoil action, and has pretty hefty recoil from the prone position. I incorporated use of my new GoPro and quadcopter – let me know what you think! (and yes, I am working on finding a way to get rid of the ‘copter rotor noise).
The Remington had one malfunction, which appears to have been caused by the barrel takedown screw coming loose – which was easily fixed. Other than that it ran very well. The buckhorn sights were definitely better at close range than long, though.
