Re: 1894 Markings

Virtually from the beginning of cartridge shotguns the shells were offered in a plethora of lengths. In the years the Remington Hammerless Double was in production, our North American ammunition manufacturers offered 12-gauge paper shells in 2 5/8, 2 3/4, 2 7/8, 3 & 3 1/4 inch lengths and 16-gauges ...

Re: 1894 Markings

and just shooing a few rounds off I've loaded up black powder shells, it locks up tight, shoots a good pattern with square 1oz loads, the bores are bright and beyond the loss of most of its blued look there is no rusting or pitting. Why the mess of black powder? From the time the Remington Hammerle...

Re: 1894 Markings

A gun with the serial number P138705 would be from the clean-up and sell off of all break action guns to Norvelle-Shapleigh Hardware Company of St Louis during 1910. I don't see a serial number on the barrel flats of the /// B E Y Damascus barrels. The serial number on the /// R E D5 barrels is on t...

Re: Date code on Remington shot shell boxes?

I have a box of 28-gauge 2 7/8 inch Remington Express loads with the "New Remington Crimp" with 1 R 1 and 12-47 on the bottom flap. For 1946, the Remington Express loads still had the roll-crimp. The "New Remington Crimp" was introduced on the Remington Express loads in the January 3, 1947, Remingto...

Re: Model 31L 20 gauge with TC wood?

That is not the Model 31 TC grip or slide handle checkering pattern. Its after market wood, I suspect from Bishop, as it is one of their grip checkering patterns. Remington never offered a vent rib on the 16- or 20-gauge Model 31s, only plain barrels, matted top surface or raised solid ribs. Yet on ...

Re: Remington Autoloading Gun Year

The best available serial number chronology says your Remington Autoloading Shotgun was made early in 1910. The company name on the barrel should be Remington Arms Co.

Receivers with serial numbers in the 33728x range were put in work during August 1928. The barrel with a date code of DW would be D = September and W = 1928.

Early on, the Hammer-Lifter was offered in three grades -- $45, $60 & $75 -- Hammer Lifter grades pg 51.jpeg Hammer Lifter grades pg 53.jpeg A bit later, they changed the $75 gun to have Damascus barrels and added an $85 and $100 gun. Probably the only way to identify the grade of your gun is to get...

Re: Remington 1894 16ga Grade B from Argentina

The Remington Steel and Ordnance Steel barrels were introduced with the April 1897 Remington Arms Co. catalog as Drew said, but the 16-gauge wasn't added to the offerings until the October 1897 catalog. Actually the first appearance of the Remington Steel was in the August 1896 Supplementary List to...
