Re: Remington 870 20-ga Magnum Anomaly

... Remington Arms on is the simple stamping of the word "MAGNUM" on the receiever. Does this word on their supercede anything else in terms of ending suffix in SN that anyone in the world would conclude it is a bonafide 20-ga magnum 870 from 1968? This is the kind of info I am hoping you awesome people ...

Re: Remington 870 20-ga Magnum Anomaly

... you didn't read the explicit detail. What is the problem? It's a 20-ga standard or large frame 870 Wingmaster magnum from 1968, but its SN ends in Suffix "X"...when it supposed to be "N." That's the problem...the SN on frame of receiver is designated X or 2.75-in suffix code, but it is a 3-in magnum ...

Re: Remington 870 20-ga Magnum Anomaly

... but doing an initial post of what appears to be an anomaly that does not confirm with the typical SN coding I come across online that indicates suffix X 2.75-in and N a 3-in gun.

Re: 1100 identification

Standard 12 gauge (V suffix) Model 1100, second generation made between 1978 and 1984 (N Prefix). Barrel code indicates 1980,but it may not be the original barrel. Modified choke. Very good gun. Looks like it was fairly well taken care of. Shorter stocks are available.

Re: 870 Wingmaster 20 Gauge serial#

Definitely one built on the 12 gauge sized receiver (X suffix) before 1968. I would guess late 1966 or 1967.
Value would depend heavily on condition. Barrel is likely 28". $150 to $250 would be ball park.

Re: 1975 or 2005 870 wingmaster differences

They are over 11 million now.
What is your serial number including suffix, that will nail down the year range for the receiver. Detail pictures of the barrel could nail it down too, but if it has RemChokes it's 2005.

Re: Have a 870 wingmaster 20 ga. With a serial # below 50000.

The X serial number suffix means it is built on the 12 gauge size receiver. WW barrel code is 1950. Some people have an added interest in the very early guns. You could try to look on GunBroker for completed auctions, but an awful ot of 870s move through there.

Re: Model 1100 Advice Please.

... but Wayne Leek said so, so that's that to me. Standard size 20 gauge receiver serial numbers have an X (standard) or an N (Magnum) serial number suffix. The LW and LT receivers had a K (standard) or U (Magnum) serial number suffix. They have recently changed all this, but fear not, a new one ...

Re: Question regarding Remington 1100 20 gauge LW

The L serial number prefix means it was made between 1968 and 1974, and since that is before the LT version was introduced the K serial number suffix which denotes lightweight at the end means it is a Model 1100 LW20, in other words a first generation Lightweight. Remington rollmarking is not ...
