    Well, I had a table at this weekend’s Columbia Fairgrounds gun show and brought home a new toy!

    A Remington 341P 22LR, tube fed, bolt action rifle. Build in May of 1936. That was the 4th month of production of this model. The 341 was made from 1936 - 1940. About 136K were produced but only 10% were the P model with the target peep sights. This one is just about immaculate. It was calling to me! Cost me $250. Gonna be heading to the range as soon as the rain stops.

    Don't know. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. The rear peep sight was not the correct original. It actually was a Marlin sight. I found an original and will install it before I shoot it.

    I'd do the same. Those early era peeps are quite good and usually very well made.

    If that's the one you need, you can have it. Just PM me your address and I'll put it in a padded envelope and mail it Monday.
