Remington Model 14C opinions/advice
I am looking for some advice. I have a pair of Remington Model 14 C rifles (I believe as the model is not stamped on the rifles). One chambered in .35 Remington and one in .30 Remington. I haven't shot (or attempted to shoot) either rifle in about 20 years. There are just to many other rifles for me to play with. However as I am older (and supposedly wiser) now, there is a nostalgia about these rifles and I am thinking I would like to take some deer with them (and hopefully my son sometime in his distant future).
The .30 Rem works fine and I just need to reload some rounds for it and possibly find original sights sound get it sighted in.
The .35 Rem broke down (I don't remember what broke) and it has been sitting on the mantle as a conversation piece for about 20 years.
My question, is the .35 Rem worth anything and worth the time, effort and cost to fix or are these Model 14 rifles just a whatever gun? Is it worth it or should the .35 Rem stay on the mantle for another 20 years. All the mechanics appear to operate (nothing is jammed up).
Thanks in advance.
