Manufacture date of SPT 48

Post by McShooter »

I just bought a Remington Sportsman 48 12 gauge in really great condition as far as the metal is concerned, but I need to refinish the stock and forearm. I am really excited to restore it to its former glory. I am curious as to the date of manufacture. What I read on line is that because the barrels are so easily swapped out that trying to date from the barrel stamping is not reliable. The receiver has a serial number of 303XXXX. I tried referring to the serial numbers on this site, but could not come up with anything that helped. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

If the barrel is serial numbered to the receiver, it's a good chance the date code would be correct.
