Model 16 22 autoloading Date of manufacture

Post by sgtsemo » Mon Oct 08, 2018 7:17 pm

I just picked up Model 16 S/N 14160. This rifle has rounded out my early Autoloading and Selfloading collection very good. A question is about its date of manufacture. There is not a Barrel code present on the barrel.'
however there is RP stamped on the bottom of the receiver under the serial number. Nov (R) 1923 (P) is possible . but maybe someone has something to verify that.

Question is answered. According to Remington Arms Model 16 #14160 was manufactured in 1920.( no Barrel Code)The RP was the inspectors Proof mark. I was able to find a couple boxes of Remington 22 Automatic ammo also. It is oh so close to the Winchester 22 Self loading for the model 1903, but not the same and not interchangeable.
Anyone know when Remington last produced 22Rem auto?

Documentation say 1928, sounds right.
