Re: Model 721 family heirloom

There is a long time 721 270 in my family too. Dad got it new in 1949 or 50. For many many deer hunts, it has passed from Dad to me to an Uncle and now my cousin. Other Remington 721s and one 725 is all I ever had a successful hunt with. Sometimes I did carry a Winchester Model 70 (pre 64 of course)...

Re: Model 700 rear receiver ring height change compared to 722?

Yes I just found the info in the Lacy book page 36-37. 1974 and newer 700s, the rear receiver ring is .100 lower than the front ring. Pre 1974 (including 721, 722, 725) the rear receiver ring is .117 lower than the front ring. I knew I had seen it somewhere. Now how do we identify bases for the olde...

Re: Model 700 rear receiver ring height change compared to 722?

I will answer my own question. I obtained a much newer 700 SA. That Weaver one piece rib fits and does not have the gap at the rear ring. I was right in my recall of seeing somewhere that the rear receiver rings of Model 700 rifles did change. The newer 700 has a taller rear receiver ring. Meaning t...

Model 700 rear receiver ring height change compared to 722?

Somewhere I recall seeing that at some time Model 700 changed the height of the rear receiver ring. This would require different bases than what worked on the 721 and 722 rifles. I just can not remember where. The story that reminded me is I just got a 1970ish 700 308 rifle. I have many 2 piece base...

Re: Model 722 advice

Your 2535x 722 300Savage appears to be the oldest yet on our serial number list https://www.remingtonsociety.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=410&p=854#p854 It sits between two rifles dated 11/47 and 2/48, I have one of the 300S on the list dated 4/48 Soft point bullets are adequate for Whitetail/Blac...

Re: 721 722 725 dates of mfg

Look on page 5 of this topic. Click the thumbnail picture of a D SS rifle. If your 23893 was date marked, it would look like that. The U shaped mark is a proof, inspection or assembly mark as are the marks on the other side. The mark on the bottom corresponds to what is usually an index mark to inde...

Re: 721 722 725 dates of mfg

23893 would probably be marked R SS for 11/47 or thereabouts.
Your pictures show the mark missing. I do not recall ever seeing an unmarked one.

225xx 721 30-06 E SS 10/47 (see post on page 9)
239xx 721 30-06 R SS 11/47 (page 15)

Condition on yours looks good. More pictures?

Re: Transitional 725 / 700 - Kodiak / 1962 Safari

I have owned all the small calibre 725s through the years. Always wanted a Kodiak, but have never even seen one in person. A different parts gun I did see one time was a 300 Savage with the proper 24" barrel and dovetail sight swell. The receiver was rolled as a 722 with proper 722 trigger and safe....

Re: 721 722 725 dates of mfg

My grandfather gave me his Model 721 300 H&H Magnum when I was a teenager back in the late 1980's. And I hope to pass it on to one of my future grandchildren. It has a barrel code ♡ O C 51 and the serial number is 385xxx, so it looks like it was manufactured in July 1956. My grandfather was a stick...

Re: Remington 721 trigger

I have a 722 with a 700 trigger in it right now. The safe lever might need attention to fit the stock and maybe the tang.

Re: Stock identification on 721 ..... fantastic wood !

Weatherby shopped some of their high end stock work out to a stock maker named Shaw. Shaw made the baby blue stock for the Weatherby rifle given to Walter OMalley (LA Dodgers). I actually polished on it for Shaw. Shaw fit an after market stock to my Dad on his 300Wby. Comfort of shooting was much be...
