Re: The Remington Arms Union Metallic Cartridge Co. Inc.

The Model 17 was introduced in Remington Catalog No. 51, the first catalog issued by Remington Arms Co., Inc. which was formed in 1920. The Model 17 is not in Catalog No. 50, the last catalog issued by The Remington Arms Union Metallic Cartridge Co., Inc. The folks at Ilion must have already made a ...

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.

Re: Grandpa's Model 11

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.

Re: 1873 Lifter Grade

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: In need of info on a Remington 1889 model

During the latter years that the Remington Hammer Double was being manufactured, the heaviest loads our ammunition companies offered in 12-gauge were 3 1/2 drams of bulk smokeless powder or 28-grains of dense smokeless powder such as Infallible or Ballistite pushing 1 1/4 ounce of shot. Leader 28-gr...

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...

Re: manufacture date of model 11

With no serial number on the barrel, the only scenario I can think of is that the barrel was purchased after market and fitted outside the factory. Or the serial number was buffed off the barrel when it was reblued.

Re: The Grand

R.O. Heikes shooting a Remington Hammerless Double won the first Grand American Handicap at inanimate targets in 1900. J.J. Blanks with a Remington Autoloading Shotgun won in 1907 and Fred Harlow also with an RAS won in 1908. Has a Remington gun won the GAH since?

Re: manufacture date of model 11

Is that barrel the same serial number as the receiver? Serial number should be stamped on the base of the ring that goes around the magazine tube. The one thing that we can say is that barrel was made before they got a roll-stamp with the new company name.

Re: manufacture date of model 11

According to the old Remington factory ledger, the Model 11 receiver with serial number 242022 was put in work between July 30 and September 30, 1922. F is not a Remington month date code, perhaps a poorly struck E which would be October? For the year N = 1922.
