Re: Could anyone tell me ?

As admin stated, a photo of the barrel markings would be the most accurate identifier. The various type/models are primarily determined by the company names and placement. Is yours marked E. Remington & sons, Remington Arms Co., or Remington Arms U.M.C.? If Remington Arms Co., then the style and len...

Re: Remington Model 121 in " 22 SHORT ONLY "

54bullseye While I don't collect Remington Pump 22's, I did collect 22 smoothbores. After looking at many M-12,121, and 572's, I would agree that both the 121 short and Remington special are scares, if not rare. Also a M-12 in smoothbore would be in the same category. Regarding your mention of the "...

Remington Cutlery Collectors Club

Being a charter member of the RCCC, I was wondering what had happened to the club. It seems when Bear took over distribution the annual Club knives stopped. Now that Buck has partnered with Remington on the knives I thought maybe the Club would continue. I inquired of Remington about this and this w...

Re: Double Derringer Monobloc

Since this is late production, there should be a date code on the barrel locking lug.
My old eyes can't see if it shows in the photos.
If all original finish, it would be rare, but I can't tell from the photos.

I'm not a gunsmith, but I have several 51's
I agree with Steven, since the barrel is pined to the frame, the problem must be with the breach block and/or the slide.

Re: Question just got a model 12

I would say you have a Model 12, that has had the barrel replaced with a Model 121. I have one like this. Look on the left side of the barrel near the receiver, there should be some code letters which will date the barrel. There might even be a "3", indicating it was done at the factory. Most likely...

Re: Remington rolling block no. 2

The Remington catalog of 1902 lists the #2 Rolling Block as being available in various
rim fire and center fire calibers. It does show that it was available in C F 25-20, 25-21, & 25-25 Stevens. As well as 25-10 Stevens R F.
Sorry, I can't help with reloading information.

Re: Odd three letter barrel code?

I agree with researcher the "A" is an inspector mark and the date code is RP 11/67.
This is based on my 600A ERI SN 043xxV which is dated OP 7/67.
I hope this helps!

Re: Need help with Remington 1875

Texas Jack, While your 1875 is all original Remington, it is composed of two different issues. The frame with its high serial no. and round firing pin are from a later production. While the barrel with the pinched front sight is from the earlier production. My guess is the barrel, ejector, and cylin...

The new old R-51

A source, which I believe to be very reliable, has told me that Remington will be reintroducing the Model R-51
in the very near future. Maybe early in July. I'm told it will be much improved over their first release!

Watch for it.
