.35 Remington Pump Action

I can't remember the model #, 161 seem's to ring a bell. They were a good gun but heavy as I recall. I had an uncle that used one and swore by it. Don't know what finding ammo would be like now tho if you don't reload.

Probably will be very hard to find, Remington made some model 14's in 35 remington. It would probably be easier to find a lever or semi-auto.

Remington pumps in 35 cal. are very popular in Pennsyvlania, where semi-autos are not allowed. The 35 is a great deer/black bear woods cartridge. If you are accustomed to shooting a pump shotgun, this is a very fast gun to shoot and very popular for driven deer.

I've heard nothing but good things about the .35 Remington. I know my local shop always has at least three boxes on the shelf for it. Probably depends on where you are though. I'm sure demand has alot to do with ordering.

I have a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington. My son and daughter have used a Remington pump .35 Rem. and were impressed with it. Anyone know how much they sell for?

.35 Remington Pump Action

I have a .35 Remington 141 Gamemaster pump that was left to me by my wifes grandfather and would not get rid of it for anything, besides being given to me by a great man for his great grandkids it is an excellent shooting rifle, i have great confidence shooting at deer out to 150 yds (balistics say max range for 200gr factory ammo is 220yds) and getting a good hit that will bring it down. I have seen .35 pumps at gun shows and at gun shops in my travels, can't recall the prices but i don't think they were much more than 300.00 depending on condition. the problem with finding these guns is going to be sentamental value, people just want to hang on to them. If you do buy one of the 141's the only draw back to it would be if something goes wrong or it gets really dirty or submerged. I would only trust a REALLY experienced gunsmith to do a complete breakdown due to so many precision parts in the mechanism. the up side to that is if you take care of it they last forever, mine was made in the late 20's and is still killing deer like a champ when ever the deer cooperate and i don't fart or sneeze at the wrong time.

Or the dreaded sneeze-fart. There must be something that works better as a man gets old but so far, ... what was I saying?

In regards to function, I seem to recall the pump 30-06 having problems with the pump action after a few years of use. I'm not sure if that is an easy fix or not, or if general maintenance will help in prolonging the action's life.

.35 Remington Pump Action

Use to hunt with a guy that had a rem35 pump. He had had it forever and loved it. Everybody else hated it. When that gun went off we knew that there was a wounded deer or bear. How much was the guns fault vs the hunter? Tough to say, but he got a rem 700 in 30-06 one year and everything he shot with that gun died to a good shot??????
