CMP 40X HB Pics

I've never shown you guys my CMP 40X HB. It was made in 1965.

I got it in the first release of 40X's. it came w/ all the scope / sight blocks. An extremely fine shooter!

I put real Weaver bases, Burris Signature Zee rings and a Sightron 36X scope on it.

These sporters are 'consistenly' very, very accurate.

They do shoot awful good! That first group was fired from a clean barrel. She settled in pretty good with a little fouling Not only are the 5 shot groups good, the placement on the target is also consistent.

In all fairness they are borderline "sporters" in my eye. They're either a chunky sporter or a skinny target rifle. They sure are fun to shoot either way!

[QUOTE=ducdave;4389645]This is the rare Vaver Sight for the model 37

.

Definitely a nice sight (and very hard to find for a model 37, as you said). I have a couple of them on other rifles and I really like them.

'Original' Left Hand - 40XB Sporter

Below are a couple of reference pics my good friend has allowed me to show of his 'original' Rem. CS Sporter (Left Handed). Only 4 - 5 Left Handed 40X were made, and all had the RH action config.









For documentation purposes the Rem. CS stockmaker cut the walnut stock by CNC' by 'mirror-imaging' the cut parameters and leaving the ejection port relief for a std. RH action.

The avg. time necessary to create a stock for the 40XB Sporters was between 2 - 2.5 months. Very labor intensive with the mulitple steps necessary for the DuPont RK-W Gloss finish.

Mine had a home-made case too!

Yes, it came w/ a 15X Lyman STS and original manual. Rear sight is wrapped in plastic.

All this was in box too.

Rare 40XB Sporter/Repeater Grade 'D'

John Gyde has graciously given me the opportunity to show some pics of a 40XB Sporter/Repeater 'D' Grade he owned in his collection at one time. I believe that John mentions in his book that ~ 12 Grade 'D' and Grade 'F' 40XB Sporter/Repeaters were ever created.... This example sports the thin Pachmayr butt pad...

I cropped some of the images down to reveal the detail of the engraving that the Rem. CS performed on this rare 'D' Grade Sporter/Repeater.


Enjoy !!!















Thanks so much John for allowing us to drool a bit!

Here are some pictures of my 1946 Model 37. The rifle came from an 80 year old gentleman that purchased it new. When his eyes got bad he had it D&T'd for a Weaver side mount so he could use a scope. Other than that, the rifle has never been molested. Bob
