Re: Late production model 95 double derringer

Steve,
I noticed your Derringer is 100% nickel. The typical Remington nickel ones had the hammer, trigger,extractor, and take down lever blued. Thus yours could have been refinished. I'm not saying t is, just that it isn't what we normally see.

Re: Late production model 95 double derringer

Steve, I was going to say Dan didn't have his glasses on :wink: , but I'm sure it was just a typo. His production information is correct. Your O/U is a 4th Model 2nd. variation. Also KZ is May 1931.
I also have an opinion on the derringer itself, but feel an unsolicited comment isn't proper.

Re: Remington Targetmaster model 610

Hi all, I hope to clarify this 510-610 confusion. Remington experimented with a higher powered rim fire cartridge, the 267RF. I don't have the book handy, so I can't give the dates. However the few examples they made were in the 600 series. The 610 single shot, 611 clip magazine, 612 tubular mag. et...

Re: Remington 700 ETRONX

mealtimal Remington discontinued barrel marking codes from 8/'99 to 10/01. Like yours mine doesn't have a visible date code. However they still marked the shipping boxes with the code . The box for my Etronx 22-250 SN EG000536 is date coded 31AU 3/2000. This probably won't give you the month, but it...

Re: Early Fieldmaster 572 aluminum butt plate

All of my lite weights are gone, but as I remember the BT, TWB, and CWB all had chrome triggers, magazine tubes,
and silver or gold colored sights. They also had blond wood with checkering.
That's as I recall.

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...
