From the introduction of the Remington Autoloading Shotgun by Remington Arms Co. in 1905, through Remington Arms - Union Metallic Cartridge Co, to the last catalog of The Remington Arms Union Metallic Cartridge Co., Inc. in 1920, barrel lengths were 26- or 28-inch plus the 20-inch Riot barrel. In th...

Re: Question on Remington 58

Remington Arms Co., Inc. only offered the Sportsman 58 in 12-, 16- and 20-gauge. At least Simmons in Kansas and Purbaugh in California offered 28-gauge and .410-bore conversions for skeet shooters who wanted to shoot a gun similar to their 20-gauge in the small bore events. Not much demand for such ...

Re: Choke Measurement in 1889

A lot of guns have had their chokes modified since they left Ilion 110 or more years ago. I know my Father had a lot of the choke reamed out of his 1896 vintage AE-Grade in the late 1950s.

Re: Owner of a Model 1900 serial No. 328143

Do the barrels have an extractor or the split ejectors? If it is a KD-Grade it must be one of the first ones. When the K-quality guns (aka Model 1900) first appear in the first 1901 Remington Arms Co. catalog, there was only the K-Grade with plain extractors & Remington Steel barrels and the KED-Gra...

Re: 1st Remington Autoloading Shotgun Ad in Sporting Life

I noticed that the early ads in January and February 1906 show the actual net selling price of $30. By March they were showing the $40 List Price.

Re: 1st Remington Autoloading Shotgun Ad in Sporting Life

Well, today I did the January to June 1906 volume of The American Field . Ads for Remington's interpretation of JMB's masterpiece began appearing with the January 27, 1906, issue. However, they are all the middle third of the front page, and there is no way I can get them on my scanner!! The pages a...

Re: 1894 BE Restoration

Researcher, that is the Remington I identified about 5 years ago. Guy contacted me through PM on DG to ask whether what he had found was anything special. I went to add 112990 to my list and found it was already there with the reference to the October 2015 DoubleGunBBS thread. Of course the picture...
