Re: Production Date

The 1993 Classics are M or (mostly) N. Unsure but the E may, and only "may", indicate the "enhanced" models and without seeing a picture of the stampings, I'd date yours 1999 just before they stopped stamping the date code on the barrel for a short time. Do you have the box it came in?

Re: Help dating a family heirloom??

We're looking at the same page. I took the 8 for a 3 so you are correct. I'm not privy to the barrel letters as did not see them. Not overly versed on the 30s myself. Just wasn't sure you saw the book listing.

I'm seeing Nov, 1930 in the "Serial Numbers by date (factory record book)" above the letter codes on the dating page

Re: Pump 760 help

What vintage? I consider myself pretty handy but was only able to confidently take my 1954 apart so far. Have had pull-through cleaning accessories for this and a 742 for years.

Re: 700 mfg. date

The build date BS and the serial number line up precisely with January, 1969. The mark to the left of the B is the final inspector. The 67 to the right is the mark of the assembler.

Re: Remington 700 Identification (243)

Looks to me like a re-barrelled 700 Varmint Stainless. Not a factory barrel. Could be a custom trigger but they can be adjusted and made smoother.

Re: Dating a BDL and John Lacy's book

There has been no re-print of John Lacy's book. Add a search on ebay and hope to catch one early.

As for your rifle, I believe you have deciphered the information correctly. Your serial number will start between 666 and 669

Re: Old 700 Carbine?

Well, it is an oddity. Sure looks factory. The bluing would be next to impossible to match at the muzzle if cut due to the process used. Comparing the serial number to the date of assembly may lead me to believe that someone in the factory had this "custom" assembled for themselves. They are about 2...
