The Remington Model 8 is a semi-automatic rifle first manufactured in the United States in 1906. Formerly known as the Remington Autoloading Rifle, the weapon was one of the first of its kind to enter widespread production, popularly serving the hunting and law enforcement market in the US.
Although never adopted formally by any military service, Model 8s were being assembled and sold in Europe by Belgian company FN prior to World War I, leading to the possibility that some reached the trenches in the hands of either side. Production continued after the war, and overall more than 100,000 examples of the Model 8 and its variants were manufactured in 30 years of production.
The Model 8 Autoloading is set to be featured in Battlefield 1. It was first seen during the Battlefield 1 Gameplay Series: Weapons trailer.
