Re: Engraved Rem 12C

Duke, I just now noticed your post. Where is the "RW" located and is it stamped or engraved? The early M-12's had the serial number stamped on the front underside of the frame and RW was just above it. I believe it stood for Remington Works. If this is the location of your RW, then I believe it isn'...

Re: General information

For general information as well as prices, I would recommend "The Blue Book of Gun Values".
All of your arms would be listed with basic information.

Re: Help identifying advertising

I believe these were dealer promotional advertising signs from 1958 or '59.
I base this on the fact that the M-725 was introduced in1958 and the M-740 was discontinued in 1959.
I doubt they would advertise a Model that wouldn't be available.

Re: Remington 612-p

Are you sure this is a 612 and not a 512? The Model 600 Series were experimental, and chambered
in 267 rim fire, not 22rf like the 500 series.

Re: Remington 25 receiver

As I recall the M-25 butt stock is closer to the M-12 then the M-14/141.
I no longer have a M-25 to check the size.

Re: Possibly the First Remington Model 51?

hipwer223 Donald M. Simmons published an article on "Remington Model 51 Prototypes" in the May/June issue of Man at Arms. While the ejector magazine is a feature of the prototypes,it could be exchanged, and thus not a guarantee of a prototype. While there were several differences from the production...

Re: Remington Posters

I assume you are talking about the set with a hunter-1912, wolves-1909, bear-1907, and quale-1917. This set was advertised in a 1978 Remington catalog. If they were made over a 4 year period, there probably were several printings, which could explain the variation in the color and paper. This is my ...

1100 versus 11-87

I have a friend looking to buy a Remington auto-loading shotgun. He asked me which is better the M-1100 or M-11-87, or what is the difference between them. Being a collector not a shooter, I couldn't answer him. I assume parts are readily available for both. Will 11-87 barrels interchange with the 1...

I'm sure he is talking about the background in your second photo.
Very nice '75 however.

Re: Colt 1914 Government Model .45 ACP British/Canadian shipped to Remington/UMCMarkings

Every thing stated is very interesting, but doesn't explain why it was first sent to Remington-UMC before it's
world travels. Might I suggest that it was sent to UMC for cartridge development and function.
Then forwarded to either Colt or directly to Canada, Just my guess?

Re: Remington "American Browning"

Researcher,
I know the "2" stamp is for a replacement Barrel and assumed it was done by Remington. Your explanation
makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Remington "American Browning"

I don't know if this will be helpful, but I have an American "Browning 3 shot" (marked on the fore end). It's a 20 ga. S N - C8693. However, it has a Remington vent rib barrel. It is date coded DMM-2= 8/43, which indicates it is a factory replacement. So not much help in dating it. It also has a poo...

Re: Remington Kleanbore UMC 22LR 475 Rnd Tin

Ward's Collectables just had an auction that included over 150 Remington 22 boxes and tins.
This might help identify and value yours.

Re: Old 700 Carbine?

I have never seen or heared of a 700 with an 18 " barrel, other than yours.
The Blue Book lists 700 Carbines as being made with 20" barrels in 1962 & '63.
I would say it's a custom barrel, done by Remington or someone else.
Are there more than one set of date codes on the barrel?
