Re: Whitney bayonets for Remington rifles

But I wonder what caused Whitney to make underbarrel socket bayonets rather than the traditional right-sided ones. A few countries had changed to under-barrel bayonets, but the majority (including US) never did. Perhaps it was at the request of a specific contract? Or just viewed as an improvement?

Re: Whitney bayonets for Remington rifles

I do believe I have an example of the top bayonet.
I guess the cleaning rod would have to be shorter than usual to clear the bayonet in that position.
I wonder why they chose to change the traditional position of the bayonet?

Re: Remington Model 10 Police Riot Shotgun

Many thanks for the into. How would I tell if it's a model 29 barrel? Also, any way I can get more info on the Pasco PD marking?

Yes, on the left side of the barrel is "RX" just in front of the receiver. the barrel length is 20 inches. Also, on the right side of the barrel, just in front of the receiver is "R.E.P." in and oval, and next to that is an anchor.

Remington Model 10 Police Riot Shotgun

I'm usually more of a Rolling Block man, but I just got an interesting Remington Model 10 riot shotgun (12 gauge), serial # 276273. It is marked "PASCO PD NO. 2", hand-stamped along the right side of the receiver. The barrel is marked "CYL" on the left near the breach (I assume for "cylinder bore"),...

WTB: Stock (or pieces) for Remington-Lee 1882 or 1885

Trying to restore a Remington-Lee Model 1882 Army rifle, with a shortened stock. Looking to buy the front half of a stock or whole stock. I think a stock (or piece) from an 1885 Navy Model is essentially the same. Please e-mail me at: gmkmd@aol.com
