I saw an early Remington 721 30-06 on an auction. Since there were no pictures of the inside the bolt rail I ask the seller for the serial number. He told me it didn't have one. I told him that the serial number was located in the receiver and if he pulled the bolt back he would see it. I also told him that the serial number should also be electro penciled on the bolt body.

He wrote me back with the serial number and that it matched the bolt. He put up new pictures and guess what he did! He stamped the serial number on the receiver where the latter 721's had them, and not even in a straight line!

Shame, I would have bid on that right because it is an early one.

2243x 30-06 E SS 10/47 (S/N inside the bolt rail [owner stamp outside on receiver], Not factory tapped on rear receiver ring)

My .244 Remington 722s

722 .244 Remington – # 3762xx – 26” barrel code XB – December 1955 – (the date 1/12/56 is etched inside the Buttplate).

722 .244 Remington – # 3837xx – 26” barrel with Code CC – April 1956 – very nice checkered stock, which I believe is original to this gun.

722 .244 Remington – # 3878xx - 26” barrel code PC – June 1956 - all original and excellent condition.

722 .244 Remington – # 3919xx – 26” barrel – NO Barrel Code but it is stamped with #51 where date code should be - (made 1956/1957 per serial number range OR 1958 per Remington, when they still answered the phone and were helpful) beautiful original and correct vintage Lyman 48 WJS rear Peep sight and ??? front sight.
