Re: Replacement Model 721 Barrel or counter bore

You didn't comment on what type of accuracy you have with the existing condition of the barrel. If it's "reasonable", leave it alone. If not, have a competent gunsmith remove the front sight, cut and re-crown the barrel. Den, Not too great; it was about 3" groups at 100 yd. at 300 yd I could not ge...

Re: Stamp

I recently acquired model 03-A3. Trying to find out the history. Also have one that was drilled for a scope but looks like a model 1903. All US Remington.

Re: Older Remington 700

Wulfman what you say about the barrel being turned is 100% correct and I never would have thought of that. The history: a friend of mine in Texas acquired this rifle in the early 70's when he was getting his PhD in Geology in Laramie. He said that he bought it from a local gunsmith but he is not a ...

Re: Older Remington 700

I have an early Remington 700 ADL and I am trying to figure out the date of manufacture. The serial # is 650XX, it has the REP proof and a heart stamp, and the word Remington on the bottom of the barrel going into the forearm . There are no pre-fix letters or other marks. Since it does not have the...

Re: remington 700 .222mag

Or, do you just want to collect something that's pretty rare? Den... That's pretty much it, I collect odd things, I'm attracted to the odd calibers and older rifles (not that it's an old rifle) Just picked you a 721 in 300 H&H for those reasons. For that .222 I was looking at I was on the fence, I ...

Re: remington 700 .222mag

You need to ask yourself "WHY do I want to own one of those?" They're strictly a "roll your own" proposition. (unless you stumble into some loaded rounds) Do you already have the brass to load? (it's pretty expensive IF it's available) Do you already have the dies and other equipment to load them? O...

Re: Confusion in Dating 572 Fieldmaster

I am trying to date a 572 and have not been able to narrow down the production date. The year date code is "I" which make it either 76 , 88, or 2014. When I look at what I find for history or modifications over the years I am not able to rule out some of those date. Here are some of the key feature...

Re: Model 12

I have a model 12 from childhood. It has RW serial # 119481 on the bottom of the receiver. It has an octagon barrel with a Marble R7 tang peep sight. The aperture is missing. Can someone tell me when this gun was manufactured and what size aperture I need to buy and where I might find one? Thanks T...
