Dating a remington 700 by serial number
I know the barrel codes but never heard of Remington's serial numbers telling manufacture dates.Barrel date codes are here at the Remington Society, along with a good diagram of how to read them. Hello all I am new to the forums and have read through some of the psot and found some very good info.So there was a 2 year gap in rifle date coded barrels and the normal consumer, or gunsmith would have to contact the factory for this information.They then saw the error of their ways apparently because of being inundated by phone calls and resumed stamping the date code on the barrel on 10/1/01.If your firearm does have a serial number, if you will call or email us the serial number and model number we can determine the approximate age of your firearm.Contact Remington through their Help Center by e-mail at [email protected] call their historian at 1-800-243-9700 Mon-Fri 9-5 EST.
For models without a serial number, we may be able to determine the age by the 2-3 letters that are stamped on the barrel.I was wondering if anyone could help me with a question.I recently will turn 40 and for a birthday present my dad surprised me with a nice rifle.Barrel date codes are here at the Remington Society, along with a good diagram of how to read them.

REMINGTON MANUFACTURING DATE CODE stamped on LH top rear of barrel, 2 or 3 digit, (month first, year after) these will normally only be the last letters as seen below, The factory says all barrels are date code stamped, well I have found some that are not, or if they are, are so erratic stamping that trying to decipher them is impossible. Both were taken off Remington 760s, with the one on the left, a 30-06 that I bought new October 10, 1954. The one on the right again a 30-06, but with a shorter barrel that I made into a knock around quad rifle with pivot mounts.
