Re: Remington model 31 barrel fit

When you find such a gunsmith, let us know. I picked up a 26-inch CYL barrel for my 28-inch FULL 1936 vintage 16-gauge that needs fitting.

Re: Remington 1894 10 gage

I could never understand why Charles wasted a couple pages of his book on guns marked with a roll-stamp that had exceeded its useful life. Pretty much ho hum and so what!

Re: Model 11 with factory polychoke

Rare may be an overstatement, but scarce for sure. The Model 11 and The Sportsman were introduced in 16-gauge in 1931. Factory integral Poly-Chokes were first offered by Remington Arms Co., Inc. in the January 19, 1940, catalog --

The Model 31 12-gauge receiver with serial number 39635 was put in production during November 1940. I have a couple of Model 31s with the RLB and the bomb, a cobbled together gun with a receiver in the 37xxx range with different serial numbers on the barrel and trigger group and this all matching nu...

Re: Model 31 20ga barrel question

Full choke seems to be far and away the most common choke found on Model 31s, so opening one up certainly wouldn't hurt my feelings. I find modified, improved cylinder and SKEET more useful to me. Don't have such an issue with my 20-gauge Model 31 as someone long ago put a Cutts Compensator on it!!

Re: manufacture date of model 11

About all that can be accurately stated is that 16-gauge Sportsman 1556255 is a post-WW-II gun. The old factory ledger for the 16-gauge Model 11/Sportsman serial numbers ends June 30, 1942 at 1551120. What is the date code on the barrel?

Re: Remington Umc Ammo question

In 1916, they added the word "incorporated," in small print, under the Rem-UMC line.
The company name actually changed more. It was prefaced with "The" and the hyphen was gone.

Re: Ridiculous Wood

I don't think I'm having a senior moment, but I seem to recall there was a period of time that the .410-bore and 28-gauge Model 870s and Model 1100s came with Mahogany stocks and forearms.

Re: Matching barrels on Pre-11 Auto Trap Grade?

3 is factory repair. So, should have been fitted at the factory. As I understand it if it was a 2 that would be an extra barrel fitted by an authorized gunsmith.

Re: Matching barrels on Pre-11 Auto Trap Grade?

The receiver and the original barrel are marked Remington Arms Co. That was the company name until 1911, when Marcellus Hartley Dodge combined his arms and ammunition companies as Remington Arms - Union Metallic Cartridge Co. During 1916 they incorporated to raise capital for war production becoming...

Re: Unique Looking Model 32 Help

It appears to me that the gun as originally built was choked M (modified) for the bottom barrel and F (full) for the top barrel. One of those returns for repair was probably to have the chokes opened and over-stamped to IMP CYL (improved cylinder) bottom barrel and MOD (modified) top barrel. As orig...
