Re: Model 1900 extractor

Sounds like he has a KED-Grade. When the K-quality Remington Hammerless Doubles were introduced in 1900 there were two versions, the K-Grade with Remington Steel barrels and a plain extractor and the KED-Grade with two-stripe Damascus barrels and automatic ejectors. In the 1903-04 Remington Arms Co....

Re: Early Model 11 Remingtons

The John M. Browning designed Remington Autoloading Shotgun was introduced in the 1905-06 Remington Arms Co. catalog. 1905-06 Catalogue.jpg Both of your guns are from that era, though 6600 appears to have later wood on it. In 1911, Marcellus Hartley Dodge combined his arms and ammunition companies a...

Re: Long Range Model 11 (2 shot?)

The receiver with the serial number 397556 was put in work during August 1937. Remington quit the separate serial number sequence for 12-gauge Sportsman on 24 August 1937, at 515506. So, that gun is among the first Sportsman serial numbered in the Model 11 sequence. The barrel should have the serial...

Late Remington Hammerless Doubles

The serial number chronology Charles Semmer created for his book, Remington Double Shotguns , shows serial numbers for Remington Hammerless Doubles (aka Model 1894s) up to 141194. In a lifetime of keeping track of Remington Hammerless Doubles I've recorded many up into the 139xxx range and then five...

The W suffix to the serial number indicates a 16-gauge. No prefix to the serial number indicates 1950 to 1967.

Re: Remington-UMC .410 Box circa 1921

It is an early 1920s box from shortly after the company became Remington Arms Co., Inc. In those years our ammunition manufacturers were experimenting with applying progressive burning smokeless powder, developed during The Great War, to shotgun shells. Certainly no clue in the 1923 Remington catalo...

Re: Remington Model 1894 Pigeon and Trap Guns

On an inside surface of the receiver is faintly marked "Oct 30st 94." I'm guessing that is the patent or model date. Two patents pertaining to the Remington Hammerless Double were issued on the same day, October 30, 1894. No. 528,507 pertaining to the milling of the frame was granted to R...

Re: Remington Model 1894 Pigeon and Trap Guns

The no-safety guns I've recorded are all in the 132xxx and higher serial number range. The one that broke my heart was, 139928, a DEO-Grade that Pete Harvey had at the Pikesville, Maryland, gun show at least three decades ago that had a very poorly done retro-fit safety.
