Re: Model 870 Vent Rib Attachment

You also did not mention what the gauge and barrel length of that 870 was.

Re: Model 870 Vent Rib Attachment

Can anyone tell me how the vent rib is attached on the 870 model? I have a friend who left the gun in a case and it is rusted to the point where it needs to be reblued. I know that hot bluing will separate the rib from the barrel if it is soft solder, but won't if it is attached with silver solder....

Re: Forum activity

The circumstances of how I happened to be on the forum was that I saw a reference to a book authored by John Gyde and Roy Marcot and did some searching.....and found this forum. Since I have a "fair number" of firearms including quite a few Remingtons, I decided to hang around and further ...

Re: Model 12B dating

I recently bought the 12B Gallery Special in rough condition needing repair. I can fix it and have ordered the parts. I have found no letters on the barrel to get a date of manufacture. My guess is it is before 1921, the serial number is 369367. Could anyone venture a guess on its date by the numbe...

Re: Left Hand Model 700 vs. Model 700LH

Hello, all, first post here. I have a left handed Model 700 in .30/06, OY barrel code (July '74, so early for a left handed 700). However, the receiver is marked "Remington" over "Model 700" . I think this may just be an error, in that the incorrect die was used to mark this rec...

Ok i have purchased a few older (60s and 70s) rifles. Based on barrel stamps. But the question I have is.
