Re: Nylon 66 stock

I have a Nylon 66 that has a very rusty receiver cover (early model with no serial no). When I tried to purchase a new one from Remington, I was told that it is considered the receiver, and a newer one would have to be transferred through an FFL, and recorded just like a complete rifle. Needless to ...

Re: Help ID Oddball 58

wmterry, I also have one of these oddball 58's. It's my opinion that these were made up from left over parts, after the 1100 was introduced. Mine has the same frame as yours, except the left side of my receiver only has Remington, not S-58. The serial No. on mine is where it is on yours, but it is 5...

Re: Re:Reminton Arms Company Inc "25 Years Loyal Service" Ri

Joejeweler, I would agree that these rings are some what rare. I have one, which is probably a ladies ring, since it is 1/2" across the top and size 8. Over the years I have seen 4 or 5 advertised for sale. I think only an employee of Remington can answer the question, as to when they started and if...

Re: SportMaster Model 612

If your rifle is a true M-612, it will be chambered for the experimental .267 Remington rim fire cartridge.
If it's .22 rf then it has been modified from it's original production model, possibly by Remington
For more information, see the book "Remington .22 Rimfire Rifles by Gyde & Marcot".

Re: Rifle found in walls of 1880's era house. What is it

I agree that it's a Rolling Block. However I question if it's Remington.
This is based on the fact that the hammer is off-set to the left.
I don't have a solid frame to compare with, but on all of my #4's, the hammer is centered on it's base.

Re: Trying to ID an old Remington Double-Barrel Shotgun

Nifft,

What you have here isn't a shotgun. It's a double barrel percussion rifle.
You state there are no numbers, but are there any makers marks on top of the barrels or
on the back lock plates? There are only a few examples, of early percussion rifles, which are claimed
to be made by Remington.

Tne New M-51

Thanks to an RSA member, I just found out about Remington's modernization of the Model 51 pocket pistol. I'm a little disappointed we didn't hear about it here first. I thought Remington was supporting us. Check here for more details: http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_1_5/1575705_Remington_unveils_new_R5...

Re: Remington 51 380 Holster

I think you will find the M-51 will fit any holster made for the Walther PPK.
It would be best to try before you buy.

Re: Old Remington

I agree with researcher, more photos are necessary to identify this model.
To the best of my knowledge, Remington never made a Rolling Block Double
Barrel shotgun. A photo of the action would probably answer the question
as to which model this is.

CALIBRE44 Drury F. Williford, Jr. published, as he called it, a monograph, "Molds for Remington Percussion Revolvers and Revolving Rifles", in 1991. It was published by the Overland Cartridge Co. He lists molds associated with Remington, but without establishing whether they were in fact made by Rem...

Re: 722 engraved

I agree with the other posts,
My opinion is this was a standard Remington 722A, which someone had engraved outside of the factory. The wood is wrong for a high grade rifle, but probably right for the standard grade.

I believe all #1's were Black powder and #5's were smokeless.
What caliber is it?
