Last try, as it doesn’t seem to be working for me with attaching pics. Tried my best.
Sorry..

Remington 1889 shotgun in great cond.

Hello, My son recently acquired this 12ga in what appears to be grade 1, but in a condition I wouldn’t expect to find for its age. Story has it that great grandpa bought it new and while staying in the family passed through three generations of closets. Can anyone shed an opinion on what this was an...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

Thanks Jim, And right you are about shaving off lead using pistol bullets, I should have mentioned the importance of using gas checks and seating depth and I learned this the hard way. Attention to bore cleaning is crucial after using alloy bullets in rifles without gas checks. Much of the pleasure ...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

Thanks Jim, Yours, like mine, is a custom stock and thanks for the photo. I disassembled the whole rifle after I got it and cleaned everything and found nothing stamped on the stock, but it is sure to be one of my favorites to shoot. 35cal loaded with cast/jacketed bullets @ around 1600fps is way fu...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

Hank, I looked at the pics of your 760 and must say they are done the same at the cheeks and checkered wrists. Yours seems to have the correct grip cap/bp as well. I would say a strong case exists that it was factory done when it was returned to Remington. Not so much with mine as neither the grip c...

Re: purple hue bolt handles

Not restricted to Remingtons this is often found. It’s all about metallurgy. The hot nitre blue often used (and others) reacts differently to steel with a high nickel content. Often these parts look perfectly blued but after 6mos or more will begin to turn reddish/purple looking. Winchester encounte...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

No, not a mark. The only mark on the wood anywhere is the number 35 on the inner tip of the forend that I assume refers to the cal. The buttplate is one I have seen on other Remingtons but is unmarked, same with the grip cap. I removed the buttplate from another M-14 from the same year and did find ...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

Still trying to understand just what This Remington M-14 is and have attached two more photos of the stock. The standard opinion is that it is after market. The rifle is from 1927 and when I received it everything looked that old before applying TLC. I would sure like to hear from someone that has s...

Remington UMC Autoloading Rifle

A question for Remington collectors: Attached are pics of my .32cal. It would seem the role stamps and lack of stamping on the receiver when compared to the ser# don’t match up. If it’s not a M-1900, And not stamped as a M-8, and is serial numbered in the 34K range then just what is it? A parts clea...

Re: Deluxe Remingtons

Thanks Jim,
I’m of the same opinion. Based on the 3” drop I’m guessing it was done pre war by a talented stocksmith. The walnut is very dense and heavy tiger tail making a nice 35cal shooting iron. It would be fun to learn who created this.

Deluxe Remingtons

Hoping the photo comes through here is my question; I bought this stock with the rifle attached. I haven’t seen cheeks like this on a M-14 before, what do I have? While my guess is that it is done by a stock smith knowledgeable people say it’s factory. More on request.
Thanks, Tom

M-14 deluxe specs.

Hello, New here and just signed up and hope to send photos of a M-14 deluxe rifle with cheeks if I am recognized and can figure out how to do so. Also to come what I think is a pre M-1908 that doesn’t fit the 1911 date. I am a long time collector but when it comes to early Rems it turns out I’m not ...
