That is a very interesting takedown rifle. Don’t know if I’ve ever seen one. Sharp looking.

Those are cool rifles. Never seen one with a scope mounted to it.

All of the autoloaders, Model 8s and 81s were takedowns.

Love my model 81 in 35 Rem.

Ive seen a lot of them look like Swiss cheese from all the different mounts that have been tried on them over the years.  That's a Stith Mount pictured.  Weaver scope is probably from the early 40s.  Nice old Redfield receiver sight too.

The March-April 2019 edition, of "Michigan History Magazine", has an interesting article on native author James Oliver Curwood, (B. 1878 - D. 1927).

The historic article contains a compelling photograph of Curwood with his Remington semi-auto rifle. His life as an author, hunter, and conservationist is briefly reported.

I was aware of the landmark building, 'Curwood Castle', that stands in Owosso, Michigan, overlooking the Shiawassee River. (It served as Curwood's writing studio and he willed it to the City of Owosso, which has made it into a museum).

I was unaware of the productivity and interesting outdoor life of this highly successful, best selling action/adventure writer of the 1920's.

Curwood made long annual trips to the Canadian N.W., the Yukon, and Alaska. He followed in the tradition of Jack London, sometimes with animal main characters, and using outdoor experiences and hunting to create the fabric of stories.

The 1988 movie, "The Bear", was based on Curwood's 1916 novel, "The Grizzly King".
Curwood actually slipped and broke his rifle, while hunting a large Bruin in the Rockies. The Bear approached Curwood, reared, and then ambled away.
Curwood became an avid conservationist after this encounter.
(I wonder if the 'broken rifle' was his Remington model 8)?
