Re: Remington 1871 Serials

Eskil According to the book Remington Rolling Block Pistols by Jerry Landskron, 1981(this is the Bible on these)! He states the first numbers on the left trigger and grip straps, are assembly numbers, and the second no. on the top strap is the Serial No. However, there are some exceptions. His book ...

Re: help with very rare Remington 3 barrel revolving rifle

Scot In all my years of collecting Remington's I've never seen any reference to rifles with more than double barrels. It is believed that Remington only made barrels for the trade, until the 1840's. There are a couple of double barrel percussion rifles known, but it is questionable if they were asse...

Re: R51 gone for good?

Dave, Like you I'm interested in the R51, to include it in my collection of original 51's. I haven't been able to get any new information from Remington, but I found this site which I think has the latest info. http://www.gunsholstersandgear.com/2015/09/18/more-delays-remington-r51/ We will just hav...

Re: Yes, another 51 question by a new guy....

To remove the slide, you have to move it to the rear, then grasp the barrel and pull the barrel and slide forward.
I hope this helps.

Re: Log-in issues?

I can't help with a fix.
Just wanted to say I had the same problem a week or so ago. After re-signing in things have been OK.
Are you still having trouble? If so, I guess admin will have to address the problem.

Re: R51

Here is what Remington replied when I inquired September 8th. We appreciate your patience as we continue our efforts to re-launch the R51. Currently we don’t have a timeframe for the re-introduction but our Huntsville R&D center is working to have it back on the market as soon as possible. Thank you...

Re: Remington Rolling Block No. 1 Sporter help

Here is a copy of a post that I placed in the pre-1899 section, under topic "Activity, or the lack thereof". If I started a new post there might have been a reply. I have a question regarding a sporting Rolling Block. A friend of mine just purchased an unusual one from Rock Island Auction. http://ww...

An unusual Rolling Block

First a comment about the lack of activity. speaking just for myself. While I read all of the posts, in most cases the inquirer has more knowledge of the subject than I could add. With that said, I have a question regarding a sporting Rolling Block. A friend of mine just purchased an unusual one fro...

Re: remington 725

My 1958 M-725, has what I would call a molded Bakelite grip cap. It could be seen as hard rubber.
It isn't shiny like the ones on the 870 shotguns. I hope this helps.

Re: Remington 1891 & 1901 Target Rolling Block Pistols

Without seeing a photo, I believe this is an 1891 target, I base this on the fact that the rear sight is on the barrel. The 1901 had the sight on the receiver. Also the breach block on the 1901 has the thumb piece off set to the right, The checkered grips could be from the 1901, or done later. Remin...

Re: Remington Rolling Block

RonB,
In order to provide information on your Rolling Block, we would need information on markings & features.
Photos would be the most help.

Re: Question about a O/U Derringer monobloc of 1934 ?

Yes, there is a Nickel Mono Block S.N. 76188 with date code XE 12/36.
I didn't think this would help with the date range for 1934, that wildwest is looking for.
So I didn't mention it.

Re: Question about a O/U Derringer monobloc of 1934 ?

wildwest I can't give you the last number for 1934. but I can give you some numbers which might be confusing. Rem-UMC O/U's #75603 dated BD 1/35 it is Ribbed, then there is #75707 dated BE 1/36 this is a Monoblock. We know serial numbers didn't always coincide with the date codes. That's all I can a...

Re: 1894's - Relative rarity of non 12 gauge models

Canvasback, As deNusse1 says, even if the records are lost, we have the guns for reference. Maybe someone should start a survey, like the 721-722-725 in the rifle section. It wouldn't be very scientific, but would give an idea of the survival rate. It's just a thought. I can start with a 1900 KED 16...
