Last edited by Synchronizor on Sun Feb 07, Mon Feb 01, 1: I believe they have gone to an RS serial number prefix for everything, denoting "Remington Shotgun". Going to be harder to figure things out going forward. Tue Feb 02, I'm aware of that change, but I've been unable to determine exactly what year that happened. If anyone can share their serial number prefixes for s with confirmed manufacture dates from - , it would really help me out with this project. Anyway, it's not as if the serial number prefixes were ever all that precise anyway. For the time being at least, "RS" can simply be considered the successor prefix to "AB".

Tue Feb 02, 9: Wed Feb 03, 1: Interesting, though the suffix doesn't mean anything in the "RS-" serial numbers anyway. Wed Feb 03, 9: We are a community. United we stand divided we fall. Cary Call Remington and give them the serial number, they will tell you when it was born, however keep in mind they due make errors.

Thanks for that information. ZZ is We have done so much for so long with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing! ZZ is Your right. How can I tell if I have a 78 or 96? What is the barrel code and the serial letter prefix? I am assuming your second letter in the barrel code is "Q" based on what you say above or If it is a then the prefix letter in the serial number on the receiver will most likely be "V". If it is a then the prefix letter in the serial number on the receiver will most likely be "B" or possible "C" Please always keep in mind that if you bought your gun used or second hand it may have had the barrels swapped and this can cause much confusion To find general manufacturing dates it may be best to go to the Blue Book of Gun Values, which does give manufacturing dates of most models.

An issue that people need to be aware of, is that many Remington firearms such as the series of shotguns can have their barrels easily changed or replaced. So, if the barrel is not original to the specific firearm in question the date code may be meaningless. Also if there is a custom or aftermarket barrel installed it will not have these factory codes. Confounding the issue a bit may be the fact that Remington Arms stamps their final inspector stamps and assembly product codes in the immediate area of the date codes. So it may be difficult at times to determine exactly what is what.

With that in mind, and considering a lot of variables. If a specific Remington firearm has a serial number, Remington Customer Service is always the first source which should be checked for date of manufacture as they would be the definitive source. There are no publically accessible databases for Remington serial numbers.

With the hundreds of different Remington models produced over the past years, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the age of your firearm. While different chokes are offered in different models, these choke tubes and the constrictions is now available in one concise list. If you have an older model Remington firearm and are unsure of the model, you may be able to identify it by the patent date. The Rem Choke tube system is used on a number of Remington shotguns including the Model , Model , and Model Rem Chokes and other shotgun parts can be ordered through your local dealer, by calling our parts department at M-F 9am-5pm EST, or through our online store at http: The Rem choke system is for some Remington barrels that are threaded at the muzzle for interchangeable screw in Remington choke tubes.

Always make sure that you have a choke tube installed when using a Rem choke barrel. You can damage the threads if you shoot your firearm without a choke tube in the barrel. For a list of Remington Choke tubes, please go to our online store at http: We recommend patterning your shotgun to determine which choke constriction provides the best patterns in your shotgun. Typically, most shotguns will produce better patterns with a more open choke constriction; improved cylinder or modified. The more open choke tubes result in less pellet deformity as the shot charge passes through the choke with the larger buckshot pellets and will typically pattern better than a full choke.

Using a rifled choke tube may deform the slug which could then cause an inaccurate shot. Optimal performance with sabot slugs can be obtained from our fully rifled slug barrels. Since these slugs do not have any rifling on them, they will need rifling from the choke tube or fully rifled barrel to insure optimum accuracy. Both the smooth bore barrels and fully rifled barrels as well as a number of choke tubes are available from Remington for most Remington Model , Model , and Model shotguns.

You can order these through your local dealer, by calling our parts department at M-F 9am-5pm EST or through our online store at http: Remington offers a number of extra barrels for the models SP, , , and which can make your firearm more versatile. You can view a number of our extra barrels for these models through our online store at http: Please be sure to follow all warnings and notes regarding extra barrels and proper fit. The entire line of Spartan shotgun barrels have chrome lined bores; i.

SPR, , , , Some of our shotguns are offered with the designation of "Special Purpose". These shotguns are manufactured for, but not limited to, a particular hunting situation such as waterfowl, turkey, or deer hunting. They come with additional features which could include slings, camouflage, black matte finish, special choke tubes or special sights. A pressure-compensating barrel is one that will automatically direct gas pressure through the barrel gas cylinder allowing it to properly react with almost all types of 12 Ga.

The Model Super Magnum is designed to cycle field loads or heavier. These firearms are not designed for target loads. You can download an owner's manual for our current production firearms at www. The thread size of the ivory bead front sight on our blued finish barrels is x A replacement front bead can be ordered direct from the factory by calling or you can order online at http: Please note that some models have a front sight that is pressed in.

Since our copper-plated turkey loads use a lead-based shot, they will be safe to use in our Turkey choke tubes or any of our other Lead Only choke tubes. This includes the Turkey Extended Straight Rifled choke tube as well. Our Trap choke tubes will only be designed for Lead Shot. Our Rifled and Extended Rifled deer choke tubes can be used in vent rib barrels. You can shoot the newer sabot style slugs through these Rem chokes, however your best accuracy with the sabot style slugs will come with a fully rifled barrel.

We recommend an improved cylinder choke for shooting rifled slugs and a modified for shooting buckshot. Remington fully rifled barrels should only be used with Sabot Slugs. They are not intended for use with lead or steel shot. The rifling will deform the shot causing it to be inaccurate. If you are looking for a "multi-purpose" barrel, we would suggest purchasing a smooth bore, Rem-Choke barrel. With this interchangeable choke barrel, you can use a fully rifled choke tube for Sabot Slugs, or an improved cylinder, modified, or full choke for lead or steel shot.

Always verify your receiver and barrel type and read the safety instructions on the barrel before use. With heavy loads there is more than enough gas to properly function the Model Super Magnum. When the gun is operating too fast, this could result in timing related malfunctions, such as: Additionally, this could result in premature wear on the receiver which would be a very expensive repair. You can fit the Model or Special Field with any Model or stock. You must, of course, use 12 Ga. On the 20 Ga. Keep in mind, some stocks may require a different stock bolt.

You can order replacement parts through our parts department by calling M-F 9am-5pm EST. The Model SPRS is cast, however all others are not cast to enable a right or left-hand shooter to use these firearms. Because our firearms are camouflaged by an outside vendor, we would be unable to have your shotgun camouflaged at the factory. Using the barrel seal activator on firearms other than the Super Mag will prematurely wear out parts by causing excessive bolt speed, without enhancing function or performance.

The reason it is used on the Model Super Mag is because of the wide range of ammo that the gun is required to shoot. In order to allow the Super Mag to shoot a wide variety of loads, we implemented using the barrel seal activator. The Remington factory would not offer camo refinishing, however the following camo vendor may be a source.

This is purely for informational reference. The Sportsman series of firearms were designed to bring Remington firearms to the hunter in lower priced versions. While Sportsman 78 parts will interchange with the Model ADL, we do not recommend exchanging bolts between rifles. Each bolt is individually fitted to each firearm. Should you need to order parts for your firearm, you can contact our Parts and Repair Department at Mon-Fri EST or visit our online store at http: Most of the Remington shotguns are not drilled and tapped for scope mounts.

We do not recommend having this type of alteration done to a receiver that did not come from the factory drilled and tapped. Suggestions for mounting a scope are a saddlemount which mounts over the receiver, or a cantilever barrel. You can view a list of Remington extra barrels through our online store at http: The following after-market dealers may be a source for saddle mounts. We currently do not offer any firearms directly online.

We do sell some parts for firearms direct as well as a variety of accessories but all other products need to be purchased through your local dealer. To view our online store please visit us at http: Remington Turkey Chokes do extend past the end of the barrel. This is normal, and it is safe for all lead Turkey shot. Turkey choke tubes are not designed for use with steel shot. For options of Remington Choke tubes, please visit our online store at http: Please fill out the repair form from the Repair Services page and include it with the firearms when you send it back to us.

If you contact us at or by email HERE. With the model of your firearm and barrel code, we can determine the date of manufacture. The barrel guide stud is only used as an aid when installing the barrel. It has no effect on the function of the firearm, therefore the factory would not need to replace the barrel guide stud if broken.

If you still have concerns and wish to have the barrel guide stud reinstalled, please contact us at to obtain a Service Request Number. It was a 12 gauge autoloading lightweight, low-recoil shotgun and was voted Shotgun of the Year by Shooting Industry magazine. This shotgun was produced from The light contour shotgun barrel is a few ounces lighter than the standard contour barrel due to the thinner contour on the outside diameter of the barrel.

The barrel can still safely shoot factory loaded ammunition with the correct choke installed. Check the markings on the barrel as to what it is chambered for as well as the chokes as to whether it is marked "lead only". To get the figure for the drop at the comb, you measure distance from a straight line extended along the rib of a shotgun rearward toward the butt. Measure the difference to the top of the stock at the comb and the heel.

The twist rate of our fully rifled shotgun barrels is 1 twist in 35" in 12 gauge shotgun barrels and 1 in 28" in the 20 ga shotgun barrels. These barrels are designed to shoot sabots. We do not recommend shooting rifled slugs or buckshot in the fully rifled barrels. This will leave a lead residue in the rifling and will deform the lead projectiles, which will alter the pattern and performance. All of the full choke tubes that are rated for steel or lead are a darker color due to the different type of steel used and the heat treatment. If you wish to purchase additional choke tubes for your shotgun, you can do so through your local Remington dealer, by calling our parts department at M-F EST, or directly through our online store at.

Modern smokeless powders burn in the first 13 to 16 inches of the barrel and maximum velocities are obtained in the first 20 inches. Shot will carry the same distance regardless of the barrel length. Shot pattern will be the same whether the barrel is 21 inches in length or 30 inches in length, if the barrel has the same choke constriction. Our experts state there would be a small variation in velocity when using a inch barrel as compared with a inch barrel; however, the variation would be immeasurable. The basic advantage of a shorter barrel is that it will swing faster.

The longer barrel gives the hunter a longer sight radius to be more precise, particularly when pass shooting waterfowl. Also, the longer barrel can often help balance certain shotguns better. Extra barrels are listed in our online store at. The Model barrels do not interchange with the Model which was discontinued in The dimensions of the receiver are different.

Here are some differences, and why they are not interchangeable:. The gas cylinders are welded in slightly different locations. This is partly because the Model has a longer magazine tube. The Model also has 2 gas orifice holes. The Model is pressure compensated. There is a relief cut made into the gas cylinder to accommodate the spring. The Model gas cylinder will not have the relief cut or the spring or the two additional holes.

The extractor relief cut on the Model uses a wider extractor. Therefore, the extractor cut in the breech end of the barrel will be wider than the Model The barrel extension on the Model has a slightly longer barrel extension. This is the part that connects directly into the receiver.

There are actually a couple other slight differences. If you were to use a Model barrel on an Model , basically the barrel will slam back into the receiver every shot. Also, the bolt velocities are increased. Eventually, the front of the receiver will crack, maybe even chip off.

The synthetic stock and fore end will fit the Model If the gun is equipped with the light contour barrel, the fore end fit will be a little loose. You can find a variety of replacement stocks and other parts through our online store at. Remington no longer offers parts or service for the Model This service is offered to replace parts that can be worn over time and to help insure an extended life for the firearm.

You can find instructions for sending your firearm to Laib's Gunsmithing below:. The following parts involved in the update are: Shotgun barrels are classified by "gauge"--a term that refers indirectly to the bore diameter of a shotgun. It is not a direct measurement but is calculated as the number of lead balls of a bore diameter required to make up one pound. This is an old British measurement system. Gauge is determined by taking lead balls the same diameter of the gun's bore, then counting the total number of those lead balls it takes to equal one pound. You most likely have the Remington Autoloading Shotgun, which was later re-named the Remington Model 11 in This gun was the first successful autoloading shotgun built in the United States.

It was designed and patented by John Browning, who reached a licensing and manufacturing agreement with Remington in It was introduced in 12 gauge in , 20 gauge in and 16 gauge in and was discontinued in If you have a noticeable, and often ornate, pattern on the barrel or barrels on an older shotgun, chances are that you have Damascus barrels on the gun. The pattern on Damascus barrels was a result of the manufacturing process.

The barrels were a product of layered steel and iron strips that were heated and forged together, then twisted in a lathe-type device, then heated and twisted around a mandrel while being hammered and welded. Early Model and 20 Ga. The serial number on these shotguns end in an "X" or a "N". The barrel guide ring gas cylinder brazed to the barrel, was a 12 Ga. These barrels are no longer available from the factory as they were discontinued in The barrels sold now are for the LT 20, which is built on a narrower frame.

Its smaller barrel guide ring will not fit over the large frame magazine tube. On our site we have a listing of parts dealers that may offer replacement barrels for your older 20 gauge under "Specialty Parts Dealers". The Special Field shotgun has a shorter magazine tube than the standard This being the case, the barrel guide ring is brazed to the barrel closer to the chamber.

The guide ring on standard barrels won't reach the magazine tube because of its shorter length. On our site we have a listing of specialty parts dealers that may offer replacement Special Field barrels. Specialty Parts Dealers List. It is a combination of velocity and shot charge weight that cycle an autoloading shotgun. The CTI will function 3" magnum shotshells with payload weights up to 2 ounces. No, the single trigger is ejector only. The double trigger that have extractors are extractor only. The 12 gauge models were built on a large frame. The 20 gauge and 28 gauge were built on a compact frame.

However at the time, they were produced in Italy. Remington Arms purchased certain assets of the former Ithaca Gun Company, including their 10 gauge autoloader. We re-engineered the gun and introduced the Model SP to the Remington product line in The remaining Ithaca assets were purchased by Ithaca Aquisition Corporation, and they may be able to offer repair parts for your Mag The difference in the target fore-end and standard for-end for the SPR is that it has hand cut checkering versus pressed checkering and finger grooves are extended to run the length of the fore-end.

The ejectors for the SPR are controlled by set screws located on the curved portion at the front of the receiver. The right side set screw controls the ejection of shells from the bottom barrel. The left side set screw controls the ejection of shells from the top barrel. The set screws for the ejectors are preset at the factory for automatic ejection of fired shells when the action is opened. In the automatic setting, the slots in the set screws are oriented in a vertical position running perpendicular to the length of the barrels.

Each receiver is fitted to the barrel assembly at the factory and adjusted accordingly. The guns would not function properly if the incorrect barrel was matched up with a different frame. While we no longer offer the Spartan series of firearms, when we did offer it, the front bead sight was pressed in on all models except for the Sporting models. Wipe the outside of your gun with a minimum of Rem Oil to prevent rusting.

In , the new gas compensated Model was introduced. While he Model and the Model are similar in design, there are a number of differences which will not allow parts to interchange. The Remington R1 handguns are 80 Series design and feature a firing pin plunger that blocks the firing pin when at rest. The firing pin plunger remains engaged until pressure on the trigger pivots the lower sear lever which in turn actuates the upper plunger lever pressing the firing pin plunger upwards to free the firing pin allowing forward movement when struck by the hammer to discharge the pistol.

The Remington Model R51 is the reinvention of the American subcompact and the definition of shootability. The Remington R1 features a three dot sight system for quick sight accusation. The sight cut is proprietary on this firearm and changes will require the services of a competent gunsmith for proper installation.

When there is a concern regarding our ammunition, we request that you please call us at with your Name, Address, type of ammunition, type of failure, and the firearms used. Once we receive this information, we will forward it to our ammunition plant so that we can send you a prepaid shipping label, and all appropriate packaging materials to send the ammunition back for testing. We will contact you once our evaluation and testing have been completed to determine the best course of action in order to resolve this issue for you.

The ballistic co-efficient of a bullet determines its ability to resist air drag, maintain velocity and energy as it flies, to shoot with a flatter trajectory. The higher the co-efficient the "sleeker" the bullet--making it less susceptible to wind deflection, and velocity or energy loss. A higher BC for the projectile means it will travel further than one with a low BC.

Some of the bullets with the highest ballistic coefficients are in our Premier Centerfire ammunition line. The ballistic co-efficient of a bullet must be known in order to calculate accurate trajectories. The ballistic coefficient for the ammunition we offer can be found in the far right column of our Centerfire Rifle Ballistics Table located in the ballistic section of our catalog. As Remington Arms Company, Inc. This book can be purchased from Amazon. The ISBN number is This book has in-depth ballistic information as well as formulas that will assist you in finding the information you require.

This cartridge combines moderate recoil with exceptional accuracy in short action rifles. We neck down a 7mm Rem. In terms of game-stopping bullet momentum, the. In rimfire, the firing pin blow dents the primer which is located in the rim of the cartridge base. The rim-fire cartridge has no noticeable primer. Instead, the priming compound is placed and spun into the case rim. The Managed-Recoil ammunition was designed to operate at lower pressures than standard velocity ammunition. Because of this it may not cycle semi-automatic firearms.

With its large case capacity and our gr. Pointed Soft Point Core-Lokt bullet, it delivers greater velocity, energy and bullet momentum at flatter trajectories out to yards than any other 7mm Magnum. This cartridge takes full advantage of the 3. The 7mm STW has impressive velocity potential and can deliver good ballistics with a variety of bullets and powders.

More information on reloading can be obtained through one of the bullet or powder manufacturers. That's why it says it is okay for any gun in good condition right on the box. This includes original trapdoor Springfield rifles and both bullet weights that we currently offer.

Remington no longer produces Accelerator ammunition for the. Brass is one of the best suited metals for making cartridge cases because of a combination of characteristics: Brass is soft enough to be formed into the many shapes required for different calibers of ammunition, yet hard enough to withstand high pressures when the round is fired in a gun's chamber. Best of all its low cost allows for shooters, hunters and reloaders to enjoy their favorite shooting sports economically.

For Remington Turkey chokes, we recommend using lead shot or copper plated lead shot. This choke patterns too tight for waterfowl and would not be the optimal choke choice. Over an equal number of rounds, this rubbing is similar to that experienced with steel shot. Both materials create more choke strain than lead shot due to a more solid payload, therefore we do not recommend Hevi-Shot or Wingmaster HD in chokes marked "lead only". Yes, Remington turkey loads contain extra-hard lead shot with Copper-Lokt plating for surface smoothness and added penetration.

It can be used in your turkey choke tube or any other Remington choke tube. We do not recommend the use of steel shot in our 20 gauge FULL chokes or extended chokes. These chokes are designed for lead shot only. A listing of the Remington extra barrels is available through our online store at http: We do not recommend the use of steel shot through any barrel manufactured before or through any barrel having a fixed Full choke. Anything larger would not perform well out of a fixed full choke and could open up your muzzle over time.

If you have barrels manufactured after , with fixed Modified or Improved Cylinder chokes, you may shoot up to size 2 steel shot. The use of steel shot larger than size 2 is only recommended in modern barrels with the Rem Choke system. If you have the Rem Choke system, you may shoot any size steel through the Improved Cylinder and Modified choke tubes.

The Full choke tube must state "For Steel or Lead" to be capable of handling steel shot. If you are using a full choke tube or tighter it is strongly recommended that you use a choke that is stamped for steel and lead. The choke tubes that are stamped for steel and lead are made of heat treated steel that is designed for use with either steel, Hevi-Shot, or Wingmaster HD, or other tungsten based shot materials.

Any modern shotgun, in good working condition, designed or recommended for use with steel shot, should be suitable for use with Hevi-Shot or Wingmaster HD. We recommend that a consumer contact the manufacturer for its recommendation. As a result of our extensive testing, we believe that the limited number of rounds used in Turkey Hunting is unlikely to create any more than cosmetic rub marks on chokes not rated for use with steel shot.

Because of the superior ballistic performance of Hevi-Shot and Wingmaster HD pellets, an increase in pattern density versus lead will occur, especially beyond 35 yards. When choke diameters are tighter than. We do not recommend Hevi-Shot or Wingmaster HD in lead only chokes however in laboratory testing, a standard full choke. Remington's Wingmaster HD extended Turkey choke tube has been optimized with this 0.

Many large deer populations exist in areas where civilization and the countryside intersect. For obvious safety reasons, many populated rural areas where deer are hunted require that firearm hunters use shotguns instead of rifles. In some areas, shotgun hunting is even the traditional and preferred way to bag a deer.

Habitat usually consists of small wooded tracts with most shots taken at close range around 50 yards with some shots both closer or occasionally longer. The Remington Buckhammer is a high performance lead slug that's very affordable. Remington Slugger Rifled Slugs: A very popular and economical choice among shotgun deer hunters, Remington Slugger Rifled Slugs deliver outstanding accuracy at short ranges with hard-hitting, reliable expansion. Each slug is encased in a high-performance plastic sabot that greatly enhances in-flight performance and, thus, accuracy.

Delivers concentrated, balanced patterns. Ideal at very short distances ranging from 25 yards and closer. Less recoil means second shot recovery is quicker, allowing the user to get back on target more easily. These new loads are built with the same precision of our standard 8-pellet 00 Buckshot loads and are buffered for dense patterns, allowing for highly effective performance at up to 40 yards. Any choke tube that is manufactured from high-quality steel, such as stainless, should be acceptable for use with Hevi-Shot or Wingmaster HD.

The 16 gauge has a 3 piece hull. The cylinder and improved cylinder chokes can be used for shooting steel or Hevi-Shot. All others are for lead only. Hevi-Shot doesn't rust like steel shot. However, wet shells can have other significant problems. There is a chance of having a wad stick in the barrel or other problems arising. The Bar and the shell length in millimeters printed on our shells are required by some international government agencies. The Bar actually references the shotgun not the ammunition.

The markings are in place so that we can sell our products all over the world. The hammer is at rest requiring a full deliberate pull of the trigger to discharge the pistol. The design also incorporates an internal hammer block for additional safety. In centerfire rifles, the firing pin dents the primer which is located in the center of the cartridge base. It is always best to check with the powder manufacturer when you have a question about a specific recipe.

The should not be used in gauges other than the. We do not recommend using pellets and granular powder at the same time in the Model ML because each one has a different burn rate. The plating does not affect the overall length to any degree of significance. The plating also eliminates the oxidation which causes the brass to tarnish. However, since the plating is a little harder than the brass and the brass surface is etched slightly to hold the nickel, case life is typically a little shorter than with a plain brass case.

There are some that are nickel-plated for identification purposes. If the primer has a steel content a magnet will stick to the primer. If it does not stick to the magnet, the primer is made primarily of brass. The substance in the primer is a proprietary mixture. Dram equivalents were originally developed in the early 20th century to allow sportsmen an easy method of comparing the "new" smokeless powder loads to the then more familiar black powder loads. Overall, the most important thing to remember is that the higher the dram equivalent, the higher the velocity for a given shot weight and, as a result, the more powerful the charge.

There are no real dram equivalents for loads that didn't or couldn't exist in the black powder era. Key examples of these are steel loads and some of the heavy magnum turkey loads. Dram equivalents values have no relationship to the actual powder charge in a shell!

These values should never be used in determining smokeless powder charge weights! An increasing number of black powder shooters prefer the ignition performance of larger-sized musket caps in place of the No. To accommodate their needs and allow the use of tophat or English-style musket caps, Remington is offering a replacement conversion nipple for its Model in-line muzzleloading rifles. Reloading manuals and recipes are available through the following companies:. Unfortunately, there is no set answer to this question. Primers require not only a certain amount of threshold energy to cause ignition, but the rate of application of that energy is important to the reliable functioning of these devices.

Primers are tested by dropping a standardized steel ball from a range of heights. The percentage that fire from each height is reviewed mathematically to provide a measure of sensitivity. The nickel plating is typically only a few ten thousandths of an inch thick. Prior to the first loading, the inside of the case mouth should be chamfered slightly to remove the plating that builds up due to electrical potential on the edge. This will allow easier seating of the bullets and will not cause scuffing of the bullet's jacket.

Both the Figure 8 and TGT wads now feature a new stitched petal design that helps keeps wads separated for easier reloading and are interchangeable with the older non-stitched versions. The new Pyrodex pellets can also be used--up to gr. However, we have found our best results came with 90 to grains of the granular blackpowder or equivalent.

For complete load data, please refer to the Model ML owner's manual. The Model ML barrels are rifled with 1 in 28" twist in both. All testing was done with 2F or FFg black powder. Failing to adhere to these maximum charge weights or substituting any powder type or granulation could result in serious personal injury or death to the shooter or bystanders and damage to the firearm. The charge weights listed are the nominal range and maximum charge weights for the given projectile. The nominal suggested range of charge weight produces the best combination of accuracy and velocity.

It is done by starting at the lower charge weight listed in the nominal range and increasing in 5 grain increments until an optimum load is achieved. An optimum load is one which produces the best accuracy. Do not exceed this charge weight. To do so may result in serious personal injury or death to the shooter or bystanders and damage to the firearm. For more information regarding reloading, please check your current reloading manual and powder companies.
