Re: 1894 SXS Questions

As I recall, the shortest barrel offered off-the-shelf was 28". However I assume shorter barrels could be special ordered. I'd measure the chokes and see if they agree with the chokes stamped on the lug. The barrels most likely have been cut but maybe not. Worth a try.

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

Well that answers that question. Thanks!

Since there's no S/N it seems we now have a new question.

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

Thanks for the information. I still haven't been able to determine the difference between between a half or full pistol grip as offered in the catalog. Does one of these offerings include a grip cap? It doesn't appear that the drawings demonstrate this feature.

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

A photo on page 136 of Semmers book shows a B stock with no grip cap. It is possible that your stock was a special order or came off a higher grade gun. A check of the S/N and grade stamped on the stock should indicate whether or not the stock is original to the gun.

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

To followup the grip cap question - Remington stamped the stocks' S/N under the trigger guard tang. Is there a factory S/N stamped in that location?

Re: 1894 SXS Questions

It's my understanding that the single V grove indicates the smaller frame while the double grove was used on the standard frame size. This is also true of the Model 1900. Although differing frame sizes were mentioned for earlier models, I too could not find any reference for differing frame sizes fo...

Nice work!

Looking forward to your method as mine is very long and involved.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Damascus Success!

Can you post pictures? I've been refinishing my barrels for several years and find it to be a long process. I know there are many methods that were used over time and I have to believe that Remington and other makers would use the procedure involving the least time (money) and effort (money) to obta...

Re: I have an 1884, can anyone help identify mark

Your '94 was built about mid 1898. If an A is stamped on the water table across from the S/N it is an A grade. The '94 was offered in grades A through E although pigeon/trap grades were offered starting about 1905 or so. The meaning of many if not most other stampings is lost to the mist of time. Th...

Re: 1100 identification

Other than a shorter stock you might also consider having a Rem Choke installed or buying a barrel with it already present. A new barrel would allow you obtain a shorter barrel (less weight) for your pre-teen. Also, buying a barrel on eBay or another site might be less expensive than modifying the c...

Re: 1894 FE Grade

Beavertail forearms - To help expand my knowledge base when did they begin showing up on SxSs? Also, since three of the four FEs owned by Paul and Researcher are so equipped is it possible that one or more of these guns were a special order from Remington? Products of the Remington custom shop? I do...

Re: Remington Hammerless Double Forearm Irons

All of my '94s have ejectors so no help there. However, in the 1902 catalog copies sent to me by Art McKee several years ago all appear to show drawings of ejector type irons - no mention or showing of extractor type in the spare parts section. Do we have an estimate of percentage of guns equipped w...

Re: Should I buy this Model 1900? Price?

Not a beauty but looks serviceable. My best bird gun has been my KED. Many pheasants blessed our table on T day. If it's tight I'd use it.

Re: Should I buy this Model 1900? Price?

Extractors will lift the fired hull out of the barrel about 1/4" and must be removed by hand. Ejectors are spring loaded and will "eject" the fired hull clear of the barrel when the weapon is opened. There were four versions of the 1900 which was denoted as the K grade. Barrels were stamped as follo...
