Re: Model 24 ?'s

I believe that the sight will not work, but I'm not positive. The M/12 changed over into the M/121 in 1936. Many M/12s have been "shot Loose" by using hi velocity ammo. The semi's may not have been changed as much, but I would stick with standard velocity ammo.

There are CDs available for $30 ($25 + $5 shipping). The M/12 was (is) my favorite. It has 23 pages of info in the book.

Re: Remington 12B

There are a few nickel plated 12-Bs out there. A gallery gun with little wear is odd. It obviously wasn't used at a gallery. If the sights are plated it was not done at the factory. There are quite a few alternatives on the ones I have seen. As an example, some have the butt plate nickeled; some don...

Re: Targetmaster 510

I'm not sure what the BJ4 is, but it is not the serial # nor the code to determine the month/year of manufacture.

Re: John Gyde?

The locking screw was used by Rem for a while. I can't find my reference material that tells when, but that configuration is proper.

The barrel length was advertised as 22", but slight variations are common. Yours appears to be factory.

Re: Model 12a Value/Year

Your M/12 was made in 1913. Does it have a round barrel or Octagon? Condition is king.

Re: American Boy Scout

The ABS stamped rifles were early production. Approximately 1,500 were produced. The highest serial # we found was 1,482. Later production have Military Model stamped on them.

Re: 511SB Smoothbore

I haven't found the production numbers of the M/511 sb. Most of the SBs were made for the 510. I had quite a few of the 510 SBs but have never seen a 511 or 512. I have heard of very few.

Re: Remington Model 12C?

Your M/12 was made in 1913. The letters you see are inspector/proof stamps. Please use only standard velocity ammo if you decide to fire it.

Re: 572 with no barrel dowel screw??

There were several minor changes in the M/572 during the production run. As an example, at least four different butt plates were used. If yours was made in 1957 it may have a hole in the trigger guard. Yours would be near the time of transition to some internal parts changes. Many parts did not inte...

Re: HV 22 short

Your date of assembly was in 1915. I don't know pressure vrs hi-vel, but I would stick to ammo stamped std velocity.
