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: 1st Remington Autoloading Shotgun Ad in Sporting Life

Having lots of time on my hands, I thumbed all the way through my bound volume of The American Field for July through December 1905. This little blurb in appeared in July -- The American Field, July 22, 1905.jpeg While I didn't see a Remington Arms Co. ad in the entire six months, this ad began appe...

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 "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.
