The Remington Model 34 is a bolt-action rifle that was manufactured by Remington Arms from 1932 until 1935.

Design[edit]

The Model 34 is a conventional bolt-action, tube fed rifle. Though conventional in layout and design, the Model 34 and 341 feature a patented lifter mechanism that presents cartridges to the chamber without the bullet touching rear of the chamber. This prevents damage to the bullet and conceivably increases accuracy potential.[3] Remington updated the Model 34 and the Model 341 replaced it in the product line.

Variants[edit]

Model 34 NRA
The Model 34 NRA variant had the same specs as the standard model except that it featured a Patridge front and Lyman 55R aperature sight. It was also fitted with a sling for carrying the rifle.[2]
