Here is a very unusual rifle and a hard to find gun in high condition. This is a STANDARD ARMS, MODEL G in 35 REINGTON caliber. This was a very limited production rifle made in WILMINGTON, DELAWARE between 1912 and 1914. The Model G had a gas port near the muzzle and by turning the gas valve, it could be converted from pump action to semi auto. These were made in 25 Remington, 30 Remington and 35 Remington. The Model G was the first attempt at a mass produced semi auto sporting rifle. The Model G was notorious for jamming in the semi auto mode, although the 35 Remington models did perform better than the other calibers. Cartridges were fed from an internal box magazine with a hinged floorplate. Another distinguishing feature of the STANDARD ARMS rifles were the cast brass slide handle and buttplates that had a "Japaned" black enamel finish. Production totals are unknown but estimates are less than 10,000. This one retains virtually all of the original blue, the wood is excellent with minor handling marks. The rear sight is a Lyman micrometer peep. The bore is bright and shiny. This is a really neat looking old rifle. I will need the buyer to provide a signed FFL or C&R and include $35 shipping. NO RESERVE!!!
