Re: 1894 Side By Side Date of Manufacture

According to the serial number chronology assembled by Charles Semmer, 105095 would be an 1897 vintage shotgun.

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...

Re: Newly Aquired Model 11

50863 wouldn't be a Model 11. It would be a 1908 vintage Remington Autoloading Shotgun.

Re: Remington 1100 28 gauge 3 inch only

Re: Remington "American Browning"

D = September, MM = 1943, 2 = barrel sold after market, to be fitted by a qualified gunsmith outside the factory.

If the barrel had been fitted at Ilion it would be DMM3, and very likely they would have serial numbered it.

Re: Model 58 Can I get some information?

A Sportsman 58 Skeet Gun is what Chief Buntrock shot in the incredible 12-gauge shoot-off at the 1968 NSSA World Championships at Kansas City against Tom Heffron and his Model 1100, where they both went 250 straight in the event and another 800 in the shoot-off.
