The fellow that gave me a 1916 Spanish Mauser, had just traded for a decent bush condition Remington 81 in .300 savage from upriver (Kobuk) he believes it was once a village police rifle, Ive heard of Alaskan village police safes having all sorts of odd stuff, Selwaik jail once had a 1928A1 Thompson I heard about from 3 different sources and Kiana had 3, High Standard Model 10 police shotguns.
Model 81 Woodsmaster
In 1936, Remington dropped the Model 8 and introduced the Model 81 Woodsmaster with improvements by C.C. Loomis. The Model 81 was offered in .300 Savage and the .25 Remington chambering was dropped after a limited number of 81's were chambered in this round. It was offered in Standard (81A), Special (81B), Peerless (81D), Expert (81E) and Premier (81F) grades. The Federal Bureau of Investigation acquired some Model 81 rifles chambered for .30 Remington and .35 Remington in response to the 1933 Kansas City Massacre. Production of the Model 81 ceased in 1950.
