Which do you prefer?



Log in to see fewer ads
Just looking for some oppinions. Do you prefer the model 25 or the 25n. I myself now having both prefer the looks and feel of the old style 25 with the cartridge feed spring and bigger magazine. To me it just feels better in the hands it's slimmer and feels a little lighter. Looks wise I also think the wood is of higher quality for cheap wood. But I do like them both and will keep both.

25n mags are easier to insert into the rifle correctly and are more secure once in place. 25 mags can be a bit tricky if the mounting tab is bent out of place and are bit wobbley.

Don't know if that applies to magnums. I've had the 25M, but now own a 25MN and nothing stands out as being a different feel.

I don't know maybe it's in my head but the older style does feel better. Does anyone else have this experience.

I think the older stuff shoots better myself...like said above, stuff I grew up around.

Had a few of the 80's vintage in the model 25 that were impressive shooters as well with the model 20 Glenfields.

Had an N along time ago, never had a desire for another...but I really don't know why I sold it

Like the feel and looks of the old stuff

Model 25 all the way!

Better magazine, shoots 3 different rounds. And the trigger is way lighter. Also they pined the trigger on the 25N making switching the spring a real Houdini.

I like the looks of the older 25, but never owned or shot one.

Did have a 25N which was a good gun, but had only average accuracy. Wish I hadn't traded it -- I might have eventually gotten better accuracy with cleaning the bore, different ammo ...

One advantage of the N is that magazines are interchangeable with the semi-auto 795 and others.

My older brother (by about two years) got a model 25 for his tenth birthday. I got a 25N for my tenth birthday and was always disappointed that his rifle had a larger magazine than mine (silly reason to be jealous, in retrospect). However, I recently acquired a 1980 Glennfield Model 70 (with four magazines) which uses the same magazine as my 25N, so now I'm quite happy to have the smaller magazine.
