Remington offers a variety of compact firearms specifically designed for youth, women, and smaller stature shooters.  These shotguns and rifles are manufactured to the same high quality as our full size models yet offer a shorter stock for better balance and fit.  The compact shotgun models come with an adjustable length of pull system that allows the shooter to custom fit their stock to fit their individual length of pull.  A proper fit lends itself to more accurate and confident shooting.

For a complete list of our compact model shotguns, please check the compact section of our site here.

For compact model rifles, please check the following link here.

The design of our Model 700, Model Seven, Model 7400, and Model 7600 will not be damaged by dry firing.
We do not recommend dry firing any of our rimfire models. Our tempering process used to manufacture the springs inside the trigger and bolt assemblies will not be harmed if stored under tension.
If you do dry fire your rifle make certain that the firearm is unloaded. Visually inspect the chamber and be certain that there is not a round in the chamber. As always, treat every gun as if it were loaded and keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Do not point the muzzle at any object you would not want to shoot.

If you are concerned that your gun is involved in a recall we would suggest that you review the information found in our Safety Center.

If you still have questions after review of this information please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-243-9700 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., EST, Monday through Friday and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you with your concerns.  Please have the Model number and serial number available when calling.

Most repairs take approximately 4-6 weeks depending on the season, availability of parts, and what type of work you are having done. Rebluing, refinishing, and other work take a little longer than standard repairs.

A Service Request Number is now required on all firearms coming in for repair.  Please call us at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST to obtain your SR number.  You can find more details about this on the Repair Services page on our website.

We do not recommend dry firing the rimfire firearms as this may cause damage to the firing pin and to the chamber. The firing pin on rimfires strikes the rim of the cartridge (thus the "rimfire" designation), so dry firing would allow the firing pin to strike the edge of the chamber area causing possible damage.

Twist imparts spin on a bullet which dramatically improves its stability in flight. For example, if a barrel has a twist rate of 1 in 9”, then the rifling would complete 1 full revolution in 9 inches.

Heavier bullet weights in a given caliber require more twist. More twist is indicated by a lower number- 1 in 9 has more twist than 1 in 12.

Firearm manufacturers select twist rates for their guns which effectively stabilize most popular bullet weights for that caliber. If bullets are used in a given firearm that are on the extreme ends bullet weight for its caliber accuracy of the firearm may be effected.

Many consumers request information regarding the use of NATO ammunition in their firearms.  While we realize that some ammunition guides show interchangeability between some of these rounds (5.56 in .223 Remington or 7.62 x 51 in .308 Winchester), use of and NATO cartridges is not recommended in a gun chambered for the commercial variation of the cartridge.  There are large pressure discrepancies between these two versions of a similar cartridge which could result in damage to the firearm or expedited wear on the gun itself.  

We do not recommend using any cartridge in any firearm whose barrel stamp does not match the head stamp of the cartridge exactly.

Remington manufactured the Model 721 from 1948 until 1961. This rifle was the predecessor to the Model 700 with many of its best features surviving in the Model 700. Some of the features advertised in its introduction would include:

Strongest bolt action of its time
Light, streamlined, fast-pointing
Exclusive encased bolt head
Fine, crisp, match rifle trigger
Rugged yet smooth and accurate throughout

Scope bases designed for Model 700 long action rifles should interchange with the Model 721. However parts will not interchange between these two models. You may be able to find parts for this firearm through Specialty Parts Dealers.

You can view an owner's manual for this model here

Remington firearms are sold only through our distribution network. If your local dealer does not carry a particular product, they should be able to order it for you. You can find a Remington Dealer through our Retail Locator.

ALL of our firearms are marked with the gauge/caliber on left hand side of the barrel. If you cannot read this information or if you have a used firearm and think it may have been re-barreled, we recommend taking your firearm to a reputable gunsmith for inspection.

To manufacture our button rifled barrels, stock metal is cut down and drilled with a mandrill with reverse rifling which cuts out the lands and grooves of the rifling.

This mandrill is pushed through the barrel. This process is used for our Custom Shop Model 40-X and Model 40-XR rifles, the Model 504, Model 597, and Model 710 rifles.

Our hammer forged barrels start with cylindrical metal which is hammered around the mandrill. Although this process somewhat stresses the metal, the barrel is heat treated to relieve this stress. This process is used for our standard production rifles & shotguns.

The Custom Shop's modern day masters use their refined skills in metalworking, rifling, stockmaking, engraving, inlaying and meticulous hand-fitting and assembly to individually handcraft guns like no other. The Custom Shop can create a true one-of-a-kind investment.

Production models do not have hand produced parts and are not hand assembled. They do not have the tight tolerance requirements that Custom Shop rifles have to meet.

No. 

The 17HMR is a rimfire cartridge and is chambered for specific rimfire rifles. It ignites by the firing pin hitting the rim of the cartridge. This ammunition is NOT interchangeable with the .17 caliber centerfire rifle where the firing pin will contact the center of the cartridge for ignition. Always be sure to check any ammunition for correct caliber or gauge before using in your firearms.

The Model 40X differs from the Model 700 in the fact that all the parts have been blueprinted, the barrel is a button rifled, hand-lapped, air-gauged match barrel. An airgauged barrel has had the bore diameter checked by inserting an appropriately sized probe into the bore to measure the inside diameter. The probe is connected to an air operated gauge that can measure to within a half of a thousandths of an inch.

The trigger is an adjustable match trigger that goes down to a 1 1/2 pound trigger pull.

Every 40X is targeted from the shoulder to assure accuracy.

The bolt on the Model 710/770 is not like a conventional bolt action rifle. For the last 100 plus years, bolt action rifles have all basically been made the same way; the locking lugs on the bolt lock up into the receiver, while the barrel is screwed on. The Model 710/770 is a completely new way of thinking. The bolt locks directly into the barrel, and the barrel is hydraulically pressed into the receiver. Also, there are three locking lugs instead of two. This gives the rifle exceptional strength and accuracy.

Since the bolt locks into the barrel, the receiver now simply guides the bolt. The receiver of the Model 710/770 has a self lubricating synthetic insert to guide the bolt into the barrel. With this insert, and the three locking lugs, there is a completely different feel. When pushing the bolt forward, there is a different feeling than on the Model 700 or Model Seven. This is because of the contact of the metal bolt and the synthetic insert and is normal. The "feel" is different, but the quality and performance of Remington is still there.

We would recommend applying a light coat of Rem-Oil to the exterior metal finish of your firearm both before you leave to hunt and during your normal post-hunt cleaning routine. Also, you should take some additional Rem-Oil with you into the field so that as soon as your hunt has ended and you are out of the adverse weather you can re-treat the metal finish with the Rem-Oil. Be sure not to store the gun in a tightly confined area (i.e. gun case) until it has been cleaned and allowed the opportunity to dry.

You can download an owner's manual for our current production firearms on each product page.

If you have an older or discontinued model, you can request older obsolete model manuals at the bottom of the owner's manual section of our site or through the following link: Obsolete owner's manuals.

Instructions on sight adjustment can be found in your owner's manual. We recommend starting at a range of 25-30 yards for initial sighting in. In order to adjust the sights on your firearm, move the rear sight in the same direction as you need to move the bullet on the target. There is a windage and elevation screw that should be loosened to make the following adjustments.

 

No, the camo coating on your firearm does not waterproof the firearm. The care of the firearm should be the same as if the camo is not there. Please refer to the maintenance section of your owner's manual for proper care maintenance of your firearm.

 

Depending on the model of firearm, the warranty may be either two years or one year.  To view our complete firearms warranty information, please go to the SUPPORT section of our site.

For years, firearm manufacturers have kept left-handed shooters out in left field, however not Remington. We've always offered a line of left-hand guns, and the tradition continues today. You can view all of our left hand rifles HERE.

With the hundreds of different models produced over the past 200 years, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the age of your firearm. 

Since serial numbers were not required until 1968, your firearm may not have a serial number.  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.  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.

The heart of Remington law enforcement rifles is the legendary Model 700 action. It's what makes our handbuilt Model 40-XB rifles so accurate and rock-solid dependable.

The foundation of the Model 700 action is its unique bolt design. The bolt face, barrel, and receiver surround and support the cartridge head with three overlapping rings of solid steel. The Model 700 receiver is machined from a solid block of ordnance-grade steel, then drilled and tapped for scope mounts. All of our standard Model 700 Police rifles have heavy, free-floating 26" barrels crowned at the muzzle for unparalleled accuracy and stability.

The Model 700P LTR features a fluted 20" barrel and is 1 1/2lbs. lighter than the standard 26" version. In the .223 Remington chambering, the twist has been changed from 1 in 12" to 1 in 9" in order to maximize the ballistic stability of heavier bullets. Model 700P's have a three to five-shot magazine capacity depending on the caliber and hinged floor plates.

Both the standard Model 700P and the Tactical Weapon System feature composite stocks reinforced with DuPont Kevlar and fiberglass. They'll stay dimensionally stable in any weather and under the worst tactical situations.

The stock is laid up around an aircraft-grade aluminum bedding block that runs the full length of the receiver. It has a textured, black, non-reflective finish and comes with sling swivel studs.

The TWS package includes a Leupold Vari-X III (3.5 x 10) scope with a Duplex reticle and flip-open lens covers. A Harris bi-pod, a Michaels 1" Quick-Adjust sling with swivels, a rugged Pelican hard case.  

The Model 700P LTR (Light Tactical Rifle), chambered for .308 Win., features a hinged floorplate and slimmed down stock. The flutes in the 20" LTR not only assist in weight reduction and heat dissipation, but are engineered to enhance barrel rigidity for pinpoint accuracy.

Due to the wide variety and selection of firearms we offer, it would be difficult to list the suggested retail pricing for each model here.  You can however find the MSRP (Manufacturer suggested retail pricing) as well as a comparison chart and dealer locator by viewing the specific firearm you are interested in under the product section of our website at www.remington.com.

We offer a general guideline for the amount of energy at the point of impact recommended to bring down particular game.

For deer, antelope, sheep and goat size game we recommend 900 ft lbs minimum, 1200 ft lbs is adequate and 1500 ft lbs is preferred.

For elk or bear up to 600 lbs: 1500 ft lbs minimum, 2000 ft lbs is adequate and 2500 ft lbs is preferred.

For large bear and moose: 2100 ft lbs minimum, 2800 ft lbs is adequate and 3500 ft lbs preferred.

(One foot pound is the amount of force required to lift one pound one foot from the ground.)

You can view ballistics for all of our current loads in the ballistic chart section of our online catalog at www.remington.com.  These charts will help you to determine the range you will have for hunting specific game and the advantages that one load offers compared to another.

There are a number of resources that provide complete specifications and dimensions of rifle calibers.  

The Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI) is an association of the nation's leading manufacturers of firearms, ammunition and components. SAAMI was founded in 1926 at the request of the federal government and tasked with:

  • Creating and publishing industry standards for safety, interchangeability, reliability and quality
  • Coordinating technical data
  • Promoting safe and responsible firearms use  

Cartridges of the World by Frank C. Barnes is another excellent resource for detailed information on cartridges, history, and dimensions.

The Model 722 was discontinued in 1962.  However, 6mm Remington and .244 Remington ammunition are interchangeable. Remington initially chambered.244 Remington caliber rifles with a 1:12 rate of twist which is commonly used to stabilize the lighter bullets. If your rifle is marked: .244 Remington, you may not achieve superior accuracy with bullets over 100 grains.

The use of a snap cap will not damage your firearm. Please be sure that your firearm is unloaded before installing the snap cap. The use of the snap cap will allow you to leave the firearm in a fired position while keeping the pressure off of the firing pin.

If parts are in stock, you should receive your order within 7-10 business days from the time we process your order.

We often get questions about replacement stocks for the 740-742-7400 and 760-7600 line of guns.  The butt stock will interchange within the same line of guns but the fore-ends will not.  If you have an older model such as a Model 740 then a Model 7400 butt stock will FIT this gun; however, the stock will most certainly not match in color or checkering pattern.

There are a number of differences between the Model 750 and Model 7400.

On the Model 750, the gas orifice hole is drilled at a 45 degree angle, instead of a 90 degree like the Model 740, Model 742 and Model 7400. This does 2 things; it eliminates the 90 degree turn at the gas port, and it eliminates shaving off copper in the bore from the projectile. The copper shavings in the gas port of the Model 7400 would build up over time, and cause the gun to not cycle reliably.

The gas block on the barrel has been moved rearward and therefore the gas orifice hole has been moved rearward. Moving the gas hole back we can capture the gases sooner, and under greater pressure. This will greatly increase reliability by giving more consistent bolt velocities, as well as allow us to offer carbine models in calibers not possible in the Model 7400.

The barrel extension is now made as a cast part instead of a machined part. By casting, we can better control internal geometries, and eliminate machining burrs. This again, translates into better reliability.

We have added a nickel/Teflon coating to the bolt head. This allows the bolt to move and cam into place more freely.

Since the gas system is greatly improved, we can now use the R3 pad, and not have to worry about functionality.

We lowered the drop at the comb so that you can use the rifle sights easily.

Vortex Bore Cleaner is an ideal cleaning product for black powder firearms. This five-minute, non-toxic, one-step black powder bore cleaner is quick, convenient, re-usable and won't harm blued or stainless metals or wooden stocks. Now you can spend more time shooting and less time cleaning.

Our all-natural Wonder Lube paste is a remarkably versatile product that no black powder shooter should be without. As both a bullet and barrel lubricant, it speeds and simplifies loading, protects bores from corrosion, and eliminates the need to clean after each shot. Unlike petroleum products, all-natural Wonder Lube will not promote fouling build-up.

Remington does not recommend using the Wonderlube aerosol spray, WD-40 or any other similar sprays in a firearm.

These black spots are corroded areas on the stainless steel. This is due to contact with either blood, acids etc. The difference between stainless and normal carbon steel is the addition of chromium. This element aids in the resistance to corrosion. Stainless in the right conditions will corrode, even marine grade stainless. It is our opinion that the steel has been exposed to conditions where this has allowed the stainless to blemish. The metalwork could be bead blasted to remove this, otherwise only regular lubrication can prevent this from happening again.

On cartridges such as the .30-30 Win., the name is derived from the traditional black powder loading using a 30-caliber bullet and the 30-grains of powder.

This is really an older way of describing a caliber based on blackpowder. Thus, the .30-40 Krag was a 30-caliber bullet propelled by the original 40-grains of black powder load.

The "-08" in 7mm-08 Rem refers to the .308 Win case on which the cartridge was based.

The .30-06 Springfield is a different story altogether. The "-06" reflects the date of adoption by the United States military. So there is no one definitive answer for every cartridge.

REP is a proof mark and stands for "Remington English Proof".

The cut of the receivers and the different barrel contours will not allow you to interchange stocks between the Model Seven and Model 700.

The front and rear sights can be removed from the Model 700, 7400 and 7600 rifles. The front sight changed in 2004. Previous to 2004, there was a front sight base held by two screws and the dovetail front sight tapped into the base. Current models use a one piece front sight that has one screw that attaches it to the barrel.

Once removed on the Model 700, the holes from these can be plugged with the receiver plug screws, located on the top of the receiver.

For the Model 7400 & 7600 you will need to order Model 700 receiver plug screws for the sight holes. To order direct, call our Parts Department at 1-800-243-9700 or visit our online store at https://www.remington.com/shop/

The exact barrel life of any given Remington barrel is almost impossible to predict. However, if standard, U.S. made factory loaded ammunition is used, and the barrel is properly cleaned after every use, one can expect to get anywhere from 2500 to 6000 rounds, before you will start to see your groups open up. The best thing to do is to keep a detailed record of rounds fired, and average group sizes. Once you start to see the groups open up, you can send the gun in to us for evaluation. Please understand that we are only referring to Remington production rifles, and we do not have a barrel life guarantee.

Because our firearms are camouflaged by an outside vendor, we would be unable to have your firearm camouflaged at the factory. You may wish to contact the following after-market camouflage vendor for more assistance:

Treebark Outfitters 800-843-2266

The rate of twist in a Remington Model 700 Muzzleloader, produced 1996-2004, is 1 in 28".

Introduced in 2014, the new Model 700 Ultimate Muzzleloader has a 1 in 26" rate of twist.

Using the Model 700 and a scope set-up that adds one pound, gun weight for comparing the .300 Ultra Mag to the other .300's would run at 8 1/2 pounds. Using a computer program that takes the powder charge into account and an 8 1/2 pound gun for each test, the recoil energy is as follows:

.300 Win. Mag--180 grain bullet @ 2960 FPS--Recoil: 31.0 Ft-lbs
.300 Wby. Mag--180 grain bullet @ 3120 FPS--Recoil: 38.4 Ft-lbs
.300 Ultra Mag--180 grain bullet @ 3250 FPS--Recoil: 46.3 Ft-lbs

The Model 7400 and Model 7600 are both offered with a Monte Carlo style stock, which allows you to use a scope more comfortably. However, if you wish to change to a straight comb stock, we do offer wood and synthetic stocks which are interchangeable with these models. Current 20 gauge Model 870,  Model 1100 and Model 11-87 butt stocks interchange. You may order one of these stocks by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9-5 EST, or ordering direct on our online store at https://www.remington.com/shop/

For more information on your pre-1900 Remington firearm we would recommend that you contact the Remington Historians at 800-243-9700, M-F, 9:00am to 5:00pm EST. Please have all available information on the firearm, including model, serial number, caliber, physical appearance, patent dates or numbers listed on the barrel, etc. Having the firearm with you, unloaded, when you call would be most helpful. If you receive a voice message, please leave a message and your call will be returned within 3 business days.

You may also be able to obtain information through the Remington Society of America at www.remingtonsociety.com

With a rich history starting in 1816, Remington Arms is the oldest gun manufacturer in America.  You can find more information on our timeline, or through a number of books that have been produced including "Remington, America's Oldest Gunmaker" by Roy Marcot or "The Art of Remington Arms" by Tom Davis.  There is also an organization "Remington Society of America" that continues to research and update information on our almost 200 years of history.

Thank you for your interest in Remington! Most dealers do not purchase direct from Remington, they order through wholesalers and distributors.

We have a Retail Locator on our site which is a list of dealers that carry Remington products. This should assist you with finding Remington products in your area. This is an ever growing list and does not include every dealer.   You can find this dealer locator HERE 

You can also find some of our products at Walmart, Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, and your local sporting goods store. If you do not see your local dealer on this list, please have them log on to the Partner section of our website so we can include them as well.

To properly break in or "season" a rifle barrel we reccomend you use a good quality cleaning rod, a good quality bronze brush and patch tip, flannel patches and quality bore solvent. (we recommend the use of Remington Brite Bore Cleaner & Rem Oil).
INSTRUCTIONS:
For the first 20 shots, you should do the following:

For the first (10) shots:

Run a patch saturated with Rem Oil through the bore after each of the first 10 shots, and follow up with a patch saturated with Remington Brite Bore, and finally a clean patch to remove all residue.

For each of the next 10 shots, run a patch saturated with Rem Oil through the bore after every two shots, and follow up with a patch saturated with Remington Brite Bore, and finally a clean patch to remove all residue.  Now follow the cleaning guidelines below:

To ensure the highest possible barrel quality/life, you should repeat this cleaning procedure every 20-25 shots until the barrel has had at least 100 rounds through it. Failure to do so could result in excessive build up of fouling (copper/lead deposits) in the bore causing decreased accuracy and requiring more frequent cleaning between shots.

A general rule you can use follows.

For deer, antelope, sheep and goat we recommend at point of impact that you have 900 ft lbs minimum, 1200 ft lbs is suggested as adequate and 1500 ft lbs is the best for a humane kill.
For Elk or bear up to 600 lbs: minimum is 1500 ft lbs, adequate is 2000 ft lbs and preferred is 2500 ft lbs.
For large bear or moose: 2100 ft lbs minimum, 2800 ft lbs adequate and 3500 ft lbs is best.

The Model XR-100 is based off of the obsolete Model XP100. The Model 7 base interchanges with the Modle XR-100.

Stain selection depends entirely on how dark you desire your stock to be. The final choice should be governed by your taste. Applying a small amount of stain to the barrel channel inletting may be helpful to your decision making process.

NOTE: For best results, follow the stain manufacturer's directions closely, since the method of application and drying and curing time may vary.

There are many types of finish available on the market that will give a beautiful, durable finish, and unless you are familiar with the pros and cons of each finish, seek the advice of a finish expert. Your local hardware store may be a good place to look.

Boiled linseed oil or tung oil is an excellent choice of a wood sealer that penetrates and hardens to form a durable, low gloss finish. These finishes usually can be applied with a clean rag and allowed to soak in before the excess is removed. To enhance the natural wood grain, several coats are recommended with a buff of 4/0 steel wool between coats.

If you need further assistance, we suggest taking your firearm to a Remington Authorized Repair Center.

We ask that Remington Law Enforcement Distributors sell these models to law enforcement and government agencies. We want to ensure that we are meeting the needs of government and law enforcement agencies for tactical models. You may find some dealers will sell them to civilians if they have a good supply however we do not offer a list of L.E. dealers.

Special licensing is required for some LE models. 

You can also find some of our products at Walmart, Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, and your local sporting goods store. If you do not see your local dealer on this list, please have them log on to the Partner section of our website so we can include them as well.

Whenever you acquire a used firearm you should have the firearm checked out by a Remington Authorized Repair Center or qualified gunsmith BEFORE YOU USE IT. Additionally you could send it back to us at the factory and we would be glad to look at it for you:

Remington Arms Co., Inc.
Attn: Arms Service Division - TPA
14 Hoefler Avenue
Ilion, NY 13357

Please fill out the repair form from the Repair Services page and include it with the firearms when you send it back to us.

NOTE: Remind other gun owners that they should have their guns checked out periodically by a qualified gunsmith.

NOTE: An obsolete gun may not be repairable.

A lot of our early rifles do not have serial numbers. Before 1968 it was not mandatory for us to use serial numbers. To check the rifles manufacturing date, we would use the barrel code. The barrel code is a series of 2-3 letters found on the barrel close to the receiver, on the left hand side. If you contact us at 1-800-243-9700 or Contact us with the model of your firearm and 2-3 barrel code, we can determine the date of manufacture.

The model number is usually stamped on the side of the receiver.  Some models it could be on underside of the firearm, just forward of the trigger guard.

There are many variables that play a part in determining which scope is best for your needs. Are you using a rifle or shotgun? What caliber or gauge will you be using? What types of terrain and distances will you be hunting at?

For assistance with your specific scope and scope mounting needs, please contact one of the scope manufacturers to find out which scopes and mounts will fit your situation. For your convenience we have included some web sites that you may wish to visit:

www.leupold.com

Remington offers a number of different stocks to suit your individual hunting or shooting needs.  You can order a factory approved part by calling us at 1-800-243-9700 or through our online store at www.shopremingtoncountry.com.

There are also many aftermarket companies that offer stocks that fit our firearms. Here are 3 examples of companies that offer synthetic stocks that will fit some of our rifles and shotguns:

McMillan http://www.mcmfamily.com/
Bell and Carlson http://www.bellandcarlson.com
HS Precision http://www.hsprecision.com/

Brownell's offers a variety of parts for Remington firearms. You can view the products they offer at:

http://www.brownells.com

Please note that any alterations or modifications will void the warranty on your firearm.

The information that is presented in our rifle ammunition ballistics chart was gathered by testing our ammunition in near perfect conditions at a consistent low humidity temperature of 68°F. Our tests are conducted in an enclosed area, with a 24" test barrel in most cases, with the barreled action locked into a vice. Other factors including: the amount of wear and interior barrel dimensions in your firearm and the outside temperature effect the velocity obtained with your ammunition. As a result, your calculations may vary from what we have on our ballistics chart.

Special attention should be taken that oil is removed from action parts. If a lubricant is desired, use dry graphite or similar non-congealing lubricant such as Rem Dri Lube. Note also that as the temperature rises, condensation can occur. Wipe the outside of your gun with a minimum of Rem Oil to prevent rusting.

There is a jack screw that allows you to regulate the point of aim on the barrels. The left barrel is considered a fixed barrel and the right is a floating barrel. The fixed barrel is set at 50mm. The 50mm tolerance basically means the gun has the ability to regulate the right barrel to 2 1/2 inches from the left.

Produced from 1993-1997. Designed with unique safety and functional features, the Viper is ideal for hunting, plinking, or target shooting use by youngsters and adults. The strong, lightweight synthetic stock is textured and checkered for good control with a slim pistol grip and semi-beavertail fore-end that fits shooters of all ages. Its strong synthetic receiver is topped with a grooved scope-mounting rail, and the barrel is equipped with adjustable, centerfire-type iron sights. Furnished with 10 round magazine clip.

Remington Model 742 Woodsmaster was offered from 1960-1980.

Remington Model 788 was produced from 1967-1983. Moderately priced, bolt action rifle commonly referred to as "Remington’s budget tackdriver".

The Model 673 which was offered from 2003-2004 was only offered in certain short action and short action magnum calibers.

The Model 673 uses a short action platform that will not accommodate the long action calibers.  

The Model 673 will accept scope mounts. The scope base is a standard Model Seven scope base. (post 1999 with the 4 holes) Use a small compact scope with medium rings. You can use a 1 piece or a 2 piece base.The screws used in the vent rib on the Model 673 are 6/48 and the Model 700 or Model Seven receiver plug screws will work.

An article in the Army Times (January 2012) stated that Remington will make M24 Sniper Rifles available to service members for a limited time.

All information regarding the M24 program is located on our Remington Defense web site www.remingtonmilitary.com

M24 Rebuild Link:  http://www.remingtonmilitary.com/Firearms/Sniper%20Rifles/M24-Rebuild.aspx

You have two options:

  1. Use standard 30-06 Sprg 180-gr CoreLokt ammunition and simply tell the system you are using the CoreLokt Ultra Bonded product.
  2. You can also use the new HyperSonic® Rifle 30-06 SPRG 180-gr ammunition, but this is a little more involved:
    1. Power the optic ON.
    2. Wait for the optic to completely boot – about 4 - 7 seconds.
    3. Press <MODE> once to switch the optic to advanced operating mode.
    4. Press AND HOLD <MODE> for about 7 – 10 seconds.  After 3-4 seconds, the “HUD Console” will appear – DO NOT RELEASE THE MODE BUTTON.  After an additional ~5 seconds, and “Advanced HUD Console” will appear.
    5. Using the zoom out button, go down through the list of items until you reach MUZZLE ADJUST.  Using the wind rocker, increment the velocity to < 130 FPS >.
    6. Press <MODE> to exit the HUD Console.
    7. Remember to set the ammunition type to CLK in the HUD Console!
    8. NOTE:  This setting will be saved (even through powering off and back on) and will apply to all ammunition types.  So if you switch the Barnes load, you will need to set it back to < 0 FPS >.

The Model 700ML is an in-line black powder rifle based on the Model 700 short action receiver produced from 1996-2004.  There is no set "break in" procedure for the Model 700ML. We do recommend swabbing the bore between shots with a cleaning patch saturated with Remington All Natural Wonderlube paste. This helps to remove fouling and will actually season the bore resulting in easier cleaning and increased accuracy.

The Model 700ML was an in-line black powder rifle based on the Model 700 short action receiver produced from 1996-2004. With this muzzleloader, we have received our best results on average using 90-grains of Pyrodex Select and about a 300 grain sabot. However, as with any muzzleloader, you will have to experiment to find which load will provide you with your best performance. This generally provides a good starting point. While the pellets are compatible, we have found our best performance to come with granular powder. Also, we would recommend swabbing the barrel in between each shot with a pre-lubed Remington cleaning patch to help minimize fouling and further season the barrel.

While the Remington Model 700 muzzleloader, can use up to three 50-gr. (150-gr. total) Pyrodex Pellets, or 150 grains of 2F black or Pyrodex powder, we have found our best results came with 90 to 120 grains of the granular blackpowder or equivalent.

The Model 7400 was completely redesigned from the Model 742. The barrel, bolt, receiver and action bar have been enhanced. Internal parts are not interchangeable between these models. Rear stocks are interchangeable but fore-ends are not. We no longer house parts for the Model 742 which has been discontinued since 1980. If you need parts or service for this model, please check with a Specialty Parts Dealer

Due to the many variables involved with valuation, we would encourage you to refer to the many publications that are available on the subject of gun values or have it appraised by a collector. Many of these books are available through public libraries or local bookstores. For your convenience we have provided a listing of the more popular books:

The weather shroud is used on the Model 700ML (produced 1996-2004) when hunting in adverse weather conditions. It helps prevent moisture contamination of the powder charge which could result in a mis-fire. The weather shroud should be removed after each use and thoroughly cleaned. Always remember to clean the bolt assembly inside and out as shown in your owner's manual, after using the weather shroud.

NOTE: The older rubber Model 700 ML Weather Shroud Is Not Intended For Use With 209 Primers. We offer a new metal shroud for use with the 209 Primers.

Remington introduced the Model 591 and Model 592, along with 5mm Remington rimfire ammunition in 1970. We believed that the 5mm cartridge, with a velocity of 2105 feet per second, was superior to the .22 Win. Mag cartridge with a velocity of 1910 feet per second. Unfortunately, we were unable to convince the shooting public. Therefore, we chose to discontinue manufacturing the Model 591 and Model 592 in 1974. Manufacturing of the 5mm ammunition was discontinued in 1982.

For additional assistance you may wish to contact the following companies that specialize in older and obsolete ammunition.

Additionally, Aguilla, a Mexico based ammunition manufacturer is now producing 5mm Remington Magnum ammo. It will be marketed in the U.S. under the Centurion name.

The Model 7400 and Model 750 uses inertia / recoil to cycle the firearm when properly shouldered. The R3 pad creates too soft a bearing surface area for this process to function properly.

On the Model XR-100 the laminated thumbhole stock features a vented beavertail fore-end for faster barrel cooling.

We no longer house any parts for this model. For your convenience we have included a link below to a list of establishments that may offer parts or services for your older Remington firearm. You can access this list in the Support- Parts division of our site Specialty Dealers.

Many rimfire bullets are made of lead. Because lead bullets are soft they have a tendency to strip or rub off some of their outer material as they travel down the barrel. Depending on the condition of the firearm's bore, this “lead fouling” will degrade accuracy after a certain number of shots and must be removed from the barrel in order to restore optimum performance. Most ammunition manufacturers apply a wax-like coating to the bullet which reduces the amount of lead deposited into the bore of the firearm as each shot is fired. This wax lubricant can also assist the feeding of the bullet from the magazine into the chamber in some semi-auto firearms. The build-up of wax lubricant and lead in the firearm's barrel can usually be removed with Remington's Bore Cleaner™ or Brite Bore™ products. Rem™Action Cleaner can be used to remove wax build up in magazines and the action of rimfire firearms. You can find many of these cleaning products through your local dealer or through our online store at https://www.remington.com/shop/

Another means of reducing lead fouling in rimfire guns is achieved by applying a very thin layer of copper or brass plating to the bullet. This plating process is usually applied to high velocity rimfire ammunition because lead fouling in the barrel increases as velocity of the ammunition increases.

In the vast majority of cases, this is not actually a problem with the batteries.  After production of the Remington 2020 Digital Optic Systems began, an issue with the programming in the charging cradle was found that would prevent the cradle from recognizing a deeply-discharged battery could be charged.  This would cause the cradle to not charge the battery and turn on the red indicator light when charging was attempted.  The programming of the ‘firmware’ in the cradle was corrected and cradles with the updated firmware were marked with a sticker on the bottom of the cradle.  The sticker used was in two primary forms, but the presence of ANY sticker indicates the cradle firmware is up-to-date.  One version was simply a white sticker with the number 2 hand-written on it.  (See the attached picture.)  The other common form was a small rectangular sticker.

This is a version of the Model 541 that was discontinued in 1984. It featured an engraved receiver, trigger guard and high gloss walnut stock. The letter "S" stands for Sporter.

The largest capacity magazine assembly offered by Remington for the Model 7400 and 7600 is four rounds. We do not offer any larger magazine assemblies for parts sales nor are these magazines interchangeable.  If you wish to purchase a replacement magazine, you can do so through our online store at https://www.remington.com/shop/.

You should thoroughly clean the bolt and firing pin assembly after each use and especially before long term storage. This cleaning should involve removing the firing pin assembly from the bolt and cleaning each with a recommended powder solvent and lubricating oil.

To Clean the Bolt Assembly

TO DISASSEMBLE THE BOLT ASSEMBLY:
1. Remove the bolt assembly from the firearm. See instructions on page 9 of the owner's manual.
2. Pull the bolt assembly away from the firing pin assembly by hooking
the notch on the firing pin head over a metal edge and pulling. See
Picture 22. Insert a coin into the slot that will become visible in the
side of the firing pin head.

3. Holding the bolt assembly, unscrew the firing pin assembly and slide it out of the bolt body.
CAUTION: Clean the firing pin assembly as a unit. No further disassembly is required.
4. Clean all parts with Remington® All-Natural Bore Cleaner and dry with a clean cloth.
5. Apply a light coat of Rem™ Oil to all parts.
NOTE: The trigger assembly and bolt assembly should be lubricated with Rem™ Oil instead of Remington
Wonder Lube® paste for black powder. The use of a non-recommended lubricant could cause serious function
problems, possibly leading to accidental firing.

TO ASSEMBLE THE BOLT ASSEMBLY:
1. Slide the firing pin assembly into the rear of the bolt assembly.
2. Tighten the firing pin assembly by hand only.
3. Pull the coin from the slot in the firing pin head.
4. Align the firing pin head with the small notch in the rear of the bolt
assembly. The bolt is now cocked. See Picture 23.
5. Assemble the bolt assembly in the receiver. See instructions on page 9 of the owner's manual.

The PR3030A Accelerator bullet is designed with an exposed lead tip, in a configuration that is a bit more blunt than a typical .22 cal psp bullet. The geometry of the bullet tip combined with the fact that the recoil level of this round in a 30-30 rifle is very low; makes this round safe to shoot in rifles with tubular magazines.

This is the Remington Model 1903-A3. The U.S. Rifle, Caliber .30, Model 1903A3 was produced from July 1942 until February 1944 for the U.S. Ordnance Commission for use in World War II. As this gun was built under government contract, at the end of production all records were returned to the Ordnance Commission. We do not have an owner's manual available for this model however the military field manual would be FM 23-10. If you look on the barrel, just behind the front sight, you will see the date of manufacture stamped there. There were over a million of these guns produced.

The Model 760 Gamemaster is a pump action centerfire rifle produced from 1952-1981.

One scope ring is more than adequate to secure a scope on a single shot, bolt action .22 LR rifle.

Shotguns

Although the Model 1100 and Model 1187 shotguns are very similar in design we do not recommend that the barrels be interchanged between models. The extractors and corresponding extractor cuts in the barrel extensions differ. The locations of the barrel seal grooves in the magazine tubes are in slightly different places. Most of all it is an unsafe practice to exchange parts between models unless it is a documented fact that the different models use the same parts.
You can view a list of extra shotgun barrels through the parts section of our website located HERE

All RemChokes can be interchanged between Remington RemChoke shotgun barrels as long as they are the same gauge. The ProBore and SPR chokes are not interchangeable with the RemChoke barrels. 

Remington firearms are sold only through our distribution network. If your local dealer does not carry a particular product, they should be able to order it for you. You can find a Remington Dealer through our Retail Locator.

 

Yes, the Model 870, 1100 or 11-87 turkey shotgun can be used for deer hunting. You would need to change either the barrel or choke tube to one that would correspond with the ammunition you would be using.

The Turkey Extra Full and Turkey Super Full choke tubes are too tight of a constriction to use with deer loads. Listed below you will find our choke tube recommendations for deer hunting:
  

If you wish to order an additional choke or replacement barrel, you can do so through your local dealer, by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700, or directly through our online store at http://www.remington.com/shop

 

Yes, we will be happy to assist you with your older Remington firearm.

In order to assist you with identification of your firearm, we need the following information:

  • Is it a rifle or a shotgun?
  • What is the action type, rolling block, slide or pump action, auto-loading, bolt action, or lever action?
  • Can you determine the caliber or gauge?

Remington offers a variety of compact firearms specifically designed for youth, women, and smaller stature shooters.  These shotguns and rifles are manufactured to the same high quality as our full size models yet offer a shorter stock for better balance and fit.  The compact shotgun models come with an adjustable length of pull system that allows the shooter to custom fit their stock to fit their individual length of pull.  A proper fit lends itself to more accurate and confident shooting.

For a complete list of our compact model shotguns, please check the compact section of our site here.

For compact model rifles, please check the following link here.

Our left handed product line is ever evolving in an attempt to meet the needs of the left handed shooter.  Currently our left hand shotguns are only available in 12 gauge in Model 870 and Versa Max.  You can find all the specifications of our currently available left-hand shotguns here.

No, the camo coating on your firearm does not waterproof the firearm. The care of the firearm should be the same as if the camo is not there. Please refer to the maintenance section of your owner's manual for proper care maintenance of your firearm.

You can check the status of your repair at the following section of our site. You will need the serial number of the firearm as well as your repair number. The repair number must be in the format of "RE########" (RE and 8 numbers)

Remington has offered shotguns in 16 gauge off an on over the years.

The Model 870 16 gauge with a fixed choke barrel was offered prior to 1962.  In 2002, it was brought back into production with a Rem Choke barrel. The Model 870 Wingmaster in 16 gauge was produced from 2002-2006 and the Model 870 Express was produced from 2002-2005.

This newer version came with the following specifications:

Bore diameter: .670

Improved Cylinder choke: .661

Modified choke: .653

Full choke tube: .636

The specifications for the 28 gauge bore diameter and choke tubes are as follows:

Clay targets are not considered biodegradable. Studies have not concluded at this time if the targets will ever degrade on land or in water.

The targets may be harmful to animals or humans if ingested. We recommend that people do not shoot targets on land where horses or cattle graze or over bodies of water.

With the hundreds of different models produced over the past 200 years, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the age of your firearm. Since serial numbers were not required until 1968, your firearm may not have a serial number.  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.  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 us by email or call us at 1-800-243-9700 Mon-Fri 9-5 EST.

Most repairs take approximately 4-6 weeks depending on the season, availability of parts, and what type of work you are having done. Rebuilding, refinishing, and other work take a little longer than standard repairs.

A Service Request Number is now required on all firearms coming in for repair.  Please call us at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST to obtain your SR number.  You can find more details about this on the Repair Services page on our website

There are many items that can affect the cycling of an autoloading shotgun. The Model 11-87 12 gauge shotguns with field barrels installed need a minimum of 3 ¼ dram and 1 1/8 oz shot to properly cycle.

The Model 1100 barrels are normally chambered for either 2 3/4" or 3", not both, and will only cycle that one length shell.

Some components that you can check are:

  • Barrel seal-make sure that it is in good condition and properly installed on the detent as shown in your owner's manual
  • Piston/piston seal assembly-make sure that these are also in good condition and that they are in the correct position as shown in your owner's manual.
  • Action Spring- this is the spring that is located in the action spring tube that runs from the back of the receiver through the rear stock. This can become corroded or gummed up with oil and debris over time. Waterfowl hunters especially should check this part of the firearm regularly. You will need to remove the stock to access the action tube.
  • Gas Orifice Hole – Ensure that it is clear of any debris by cleaning with a small pipe cleaner.

If you have checked these items and your firearm is still not operating properly, we recommend that you have your firearm evaluated by a Remington Authorized Repair Center or our factory.  All repairs must have a Service Request (SR) Number in order to come in for repair.  You can obtain a Service Request (SR) number by calling us at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST.

The narrowing found at the muzzle end of most shotgun barrels is a choke. The choke controls the shot pattern and determines at what distance the shotgun will be most effective.

Just as the nozzle on a hose controls the spray of water, the choke of a shotgun barrel controls the spread of the shot. This shot spread is called the "pattern".

From the tightest to the widest spread, chokes are described as "full", "modified" and "improved cylinder". A gun that has no choke is called a cylinder bore". 

If your firearm is designed for interchangeable chokes, always be sure there is a choke tube installed or you could damage the threads in the end of the barrel.

FULL CHOKE
Tight constriction for dense pattern (approximately 70% of a shell's total pellets in a 30" circle at 40 yards). Best for trap shooting, pass shooting waterfowl, turkey hunting and shooting buckshot loads.

MODIFIED CHOKE
Less constriction than full choke (approximately 60% of a shell's total pellets in a 30" circle at 40 yards). Excellent for all-around hunting of waterfowl, long-range flushing upland birds (such as late-season pheasant and sharptail grouse) as well as other small game. Also used for trap shooting.

IMPROVED CYLINDER CHOKE
Even less constriction than modified (approximately 50% of a shell's total pellets in a 30" circle at 40 yards). Ideal for close-in small game shooting, upland bird hunting (such as quail, grouse and pheasant) as well as hunting waterfowl close over decoys. Rifled slugs also perform very well from this choke.

Where to purchase:

Rem Chokes and other shotgun parts can be ordered through your local dealer, by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST, or through our online store at http://www.remington.com/shop.

The Rem choke system is for some Remington barrels that are threaded at the muzzle for interchangeable screw in Remington choke tubes. Shotguns that we have offered with the Rem choke system include the Model 870, Model 870SM Model 11-87, Model 11-87SM, Model 1100, and Model 887.  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://www.remington.com/shop

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.

For optimum accuracy, it is important to have the right combination of slug and choke tube.

Rifled Slug

If you are using a Foster style rifled slug like the Slugger Rifled Slugs, Slugger Managed-Recoil Rifled Slugs, or Slugger High Velocity Slugs, we recommend using a smooth bore barrel with an improved cylinder choke tube. Using a rifled choke tube may deform the slug which could then cause an inaccurate shot.

Sabot Slug

For shooting sabot slugs such as our Premier Core-Lokt Ultra Bonded Sabot Slugs, Premier Copper Solid Sabot Slugs, Premier Accutip Bonded Sabot Slug,  a rifled choke tube should be installed in the smooth bore barrel. 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 870, Model 1100, and Model 1187 shotguns.  You can order these through your local dealer, by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST or through our online store at http://www.remington.com/shop

 

Remington offers a number of extra barrels for the models SP-10, 1100, 1187, and 870 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://www.remington.com/shop 

Please be sure to follow all warnings and notes regarding extra barrels and proper fit. If you have any questions or want to order direct please contact our parts & repair department at 1-800-243-9700 Monday-Friday 9am-5pm EST.

We do not offer extra barrels for older model shotguns. 

All of our firearms are marked with the gauge/caliber on left hand side of the barrel. If you cannot read this information or if you have a used firearm and think it may have been re-barreled, we recommend taking your firearm to a reputable gunsmith for inspection.

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.

For a complete list of all of our shotguns, please check our product/firearms section of our website at www.remington.com.

The entire line of Spartan shotgun barrels have chrome lined bores; i.e.: SPR100, 210, 220, 310, 94.

None of the Spartan barrels are back bored.

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. loads. (3 1/4 drams powder, 1 1/8 oz of shot - heavy 3" magnum loads.)

The 11-87 with a pressure compensated barrel is designed to cycle field loads or heavier.

The  Model 11-87 3" gun is designed to cycle loads of  3 ¼ dram 1 1/8 oz shot or more for 12 gauge guns.

The  Model 11-87 3" gun is designed to cycle loads of  2 1/2 dram 7/8 oz shot or more for 20 gauge guns.

The Model 11-87 Super Magnum is designed to cycle field loads or heavier. This would consist of 3 1/4 dram 1 1/8 oz shot or more.

The Model 1100 12 gauge is also designed to cycle loads of 3 ¼ dram 1 1/8oz shot or more.

The  Model 1100 20 gauge gun is designed to cycle loads of  2 1/2 dram and 7/8 oz of shot.

These firearms are not designed for target loads. We do offer the Model 1100 Sporting, Trap and Skeet firearms that are specifically designed for target loads and should be used with less than 3 ¼ dram 1 1/8oz shot.

We would recommend applying a light coat of Rem-Oil to the exterior metal finish of your firearm both before you leave to hunt and during your normal post-hunt cleaning routine. Also, you should take some additional Rem-Oil with you into the field so that as soon as your hunt has ended and you are out of the adverse weather you can re-treat the metal finish with the Rem-Oil. Be sure not to store the gun in a tightly confined area (i.e. gun case) until it has been cleaned and allowed the opportunity to dry.

You can download an owner's manual for our current production firearms at www.remington.com.

If you have an older or discontinued model, you can request older obsolete model manuals at the bottom of the owner's manual section of our site or through the following link: Obsolete owner's manuals.

The thread size of the ivory bead front sight on our blued finish barrels is 146x48. A replacement front bead can be ordered direct from the factory by calling 1-800-243-9700 or you can order online at http://www.remington.com/shop

Please note that some models have a front sight that is pressed in. You may contact our Parts Department at 1-800-243-9700 with your serial number if you need additional technical support.

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.

You can safely shoot lead, Hevi-Shot, Wingmaster HD, or steel shot in the following Rem Chokes:

  • Hevi-Shot choke
  • Modified
  • Improved Cylinder
  • Skeet
  • Improved Skeet
  • Sporting Clays

In order to safely shoot Hevi-Shot, lead or steel shot in a Full Rem Choke the choke tube must state "For Steel or Lead Shot". 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. Steel, Wingmaster HD or Hevi-Shot can potentially damage the rifling.

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.

A listing of the Remington extra barrels is available through our online store at http://www.remington.com/shop

You can use 2 3/4", 3", and 3 1/2" shells in all Model 870 Super Magnum receivers with 3 1/2" ventilated rib barrels. Model 870 Super Magnum combos with deer, smooth bore and fully rifled barrels are restricted to 2 3/4" and 3" shells. Always verify your receiver and barrel type and read the safety instructions on the barrel before use.

The barrel seal activator is designed for use on the Model 11-87 12-gauge Super Magnum shotgun to improve performance when using light 2-3/4" loads. With heavy loads there is more than enough gas to properly function the Model 1187 Super Magnum. Leaving the Barrel Seal Activator on the gun with 3" and 3 1/2" loads unnecessarily speeds up the action. When the gun is operating too fast, this could result in timing related malfunctions, such as: not allowing the action to completely lock open after the last round is ejected or a failure to feed the next round from the magazine. Additionally, this could result in premature wear on the receiver which would be a very expensive repair.

You can fit the Model 1100 or 870 Special Field with any Model 1100 or 870 stock. You must, of course, use 12 Ga. stock on 12 Ga. receivers. On the 20 Ga. any style lightweight stock can be used as the 20, 28 and 410 Ga. stocks are all interchangeable. Keep in mind, some stocks may require a different stock bolt. You can order replacement parts through our parts department by calling 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9am-5pm EST.  

The Model SPR310S is cast, however all others are not cast to enable a right or left-hand shooter to use these firearms.

The Spartan triggers are not adjustable.

Because our firearms are camouflaged by an outside vendor, we would be unable to have your shotgun camouflaged at the factory. You may wish to contact the following after-market camouflage vendor for more assistance:

A barrel seal activator is designed for use on the Model 11-87 12-gauge Super Magnum shotgun to improve performance when using light 2-3/4" loads. Since the barrel seal activator nullifies the compensation system, it is not needed on a Model 1100 because it already is a non-compensated system. Using the barrel seal activator on firearms other than the 11-87 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 11-87 Super Mag is because of the wide range of ammo that the gun is required to shoot. In order to allow the 11-87 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.

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.

Whenever you acquire a used firearm you should have the firearm checked out by a Remington Authorized Repair Center or qualified gunsmith BEFORE YOU USE IT. Additionally you could send it back to us at the factory and we would be glad to look at it for you:

Remington Arms Co., Inc.
Attn: Arms Service Division - TPA
14 Hoefler Avenue
Ilion, NY 13357

Please fill out the repair form from the Repair Services page and include it with the firearms when you send it back to us.

NOTE: Remind other gun owners that they should have their guns checked out periodically by a qualified gunsmith.

NOTE: An obsolete gun may not be repairable.

A lot of our early rifles do not have serial numbers. Before 1968 it was not mandatory for us to use serial numbers. To check the rifles manufacturing date, we would use the barrel code. The barrel code is a series of 2-3 letters found on the barrel close to the receiver, on the left hand side. If you contact us at 1-800-243-9700 or by email HERE.  With the model of your firearm and 2-3 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 800-243-9700 to obtain a Service Request Number.

REP is a proof mark and stands for "Remington English Proof".

Remington introduced the Model 11-96 Euro Lightweight in 1996.

It was a 12 gauge autoloading lightweight, low-recoil shotgun and was voted 1997 Shotgun of the Year by Shooting Industry magazine.  This shotgun was produced from 1996-1999.

Specifications:

  • Ultra-light upland autoloader
  • Light contour 26" or 28" vent rib chrome-moly barrel.
  • 6mm wide ventilated rib
  • Supplied with Improved Cylinder, Modified, and Full Rem Chokes
  • American Walnut stock and fore-end, Satin finish, shorter fore-end
  • Fine line engraving.
  • Weight approx. 7 lbs.
  • Available in 12 gauge only. 

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". If not stamped "lead only" you can safely shoot steel, Hevi-Shot and Wingmaster HD

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.

Due to the wide variety and selection of firearms we offer, it would be difficult to list the suggested retail pricing for each model here.  You can however find the MSRP (Manufacturer suggested retail pricing) as well as a comparison chart and dealer locator by viewing the specific firearm you are interested in under the product section of our website at www.remington.com.

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 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9-5 EST, or directly through our online store at .http://www.remington.com/shop

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 21-inch barrel as compared with a 30-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 .http://www.remington.com/shop

The Model 1100 barrels do not interchange with the Model 11-48 which was discontinued in 1968. The dimensions of the receiver are different.  For replacement barrels for older model shotguns, you may want to check with specialty parts dealers  who deal in parts for older model firearms.

The Model 1100 and Model 11-87 barrels are NOT interchangeable. Here are some differences, and why they are not interchangeable:

1. The gas cylinders are welded in slightly different locations. This is partly because the Model 11-87 has a longer magazine tube. The Model 11-87 also has 2 gas orifice holes. Only the 2-3/4 inch chambered version of the Model 1100 will have two. The Model 1100 Magnum barrel has only one.

The Model 11-87 is pressure compensated. This is what allows it to cycle both 2-3/4 and 3 inch shells. To accomplish this, two additional holes are drilled in the top/front of the gas cylinder, and covered with a tempered steel spring. There is a relief cut made into the gas cylinder to accommodate the spring. The Model 1100 gas cylinder will not have the relief cut or the spring or the two additional holes.

2. The extractor relief cut on the Model 11-87 uses a wider extractor. Therefore, the extractor cut in the breech end of the barrel will be wider than the Model 1100.

3. The barrel extension on the Model 11-87 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 11-87 barrel on an Model 1100, 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 11-87. If the gun is equipped with the light contour barrel, the fore end fit will be a little loose.

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. For example: a 12-gauge= 12 lead balls to the pound; a 20-gauge=20 lead balls to the pound.  

The use of a snap cap will not damage your firearm. Please be sure that your firearm is unloaded before installing the snap cap. The use of the snap cap will allow you to leave the firearm in a fired position while keeping the pressure off of the firing pin.

You most likely have the Remington Autoloading Shotgun, which was later re-named the Remington Model 11 in 1911. 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 1903. It was introduced in 12 gauge in 1905, 20 gauge in 1930 and 16 gauge in 1931 and was discontinued in 1947.

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 term “Damascus” refers to a welding technique. 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. We would strongly discourage you from attempting to fire this gun as these barrels were not built to withstand the pressure of modern ammunition and could “unwind”, thus creating a safety hazard.

Early Model 1100 and 870 20 Ga. shotguns were built on the 12 gauge. frame. 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. ring. These barrels are no longer available from the factory as they were discontinued in 1978. 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".

There are no barrels other than the 23" Rem Choke Vent rib Special Field barrels available for the Model 870 Special Field.The Special Field shotgun has a shorter magazine tube than the standard 870. 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

The 105 Cti will cycle both 2 3/4" and 3" magnum shotshells. The minimum recommended payload is a 1 oz load at a minimum velocity of 1300 fps or 3 1/4 dram or an 1 1/8 oz load at 1145 fps or 2 3/4 dram equivalent. It is a combination of velocity and shot charge weight that cycle an autoloading shotgun. The 105 CTI will function 3" magnum shotshells with payload weights up to 2 ounces.

Remington's Premier Over/Under shotguns have inertia triggers.

No, the 210 (single trigger) is ejector only. The 220 (double trigger) that have extractors are extractor only.

There were several versions of the Premier Over/Under shotguns that were offered by Remington.  They were available in the Premier Competition STS, Premier Field Grad, Premier Upland, and the Premier Ruffed Grouse Society Edition.  The 12 gauge models were built on a large frame. The 20 gauge and 28 gauge were built on a compact frame. 

The Premier Over/Under shotguns are no longer offered in our product line.  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-10 to the Remington product line in 1989.

Parts for the Ithaca Mag 10 and the Remington Model SP-10 are not interchangeable. The remaining Ithaca assets were purchased by Ithaca Aquisition Corporation, and they may be able to offer repair parts for your Mag 10.

The difference in the target fore-end and standard for-end for the SPR310 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 310 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.

To disable the automatic ejectors, open the action and turn the set screws clockwise 1/4 of a turn so that the set screw slots are in a horizontal position parallel to the length of the barrels.

To return the shotgun to the automatic-ejection mode, simply turn the set screws counterclockwise 1/4 of a turn to their original position with the set screw slots oriented in a vertical position perpendicular to the length of the barrels.

No. 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.

Special attention should be taken that oil is removed from action parts. If a lubricant is desired, use dry graphite or similar non-congealing lubricant such as Rem Dri Lube. Note also that as the temperature rises, condensation can occur. Wipe the outside of your gun with a minimum of Rem Oil to prevent rusting.

In 1987, the new gas compensated Model 11-87 was introduced. While he Model 1100 and the Model 11-87 are similar in design, there are a number of differences which will not allow parts to interchange.  

The biggest difference is that barrels are not interchangeable between these models.

  • The Model 11-87 also has a slightly longer barrel extension. (This is the part that connects directly into the receiver)
  • The gas cylinders are welded in slightly different locations. This is partly because the Model 11-87 has a longer magazine tube.
  • The Model 11-87 has 2 gas orifice holes. Only the 2-3/4 inch chambered version of the Model 1100 will have two gas orifice holes while the magnum Model 1100 barrel has only one.  

Another difference is in the interchangeability of shotshell lengths.

  • The Model 1100 can shoot only 2 3/4" or 3" shells depending on the barrel installed. (Always check your barrel for the proper type of ammunition to shoot in it)
  • Model 11-87 models with magnum barrels can shoot both 2 3/4" and 3" shells interchangeably. To accomplish this, two additional holes are drilled in the top/front of the gas cylinder, and covered with a tempered steel spring. There is a relief cut made into the gas cylinder to accommodate the spring. The Model 1100 gas cylinder will not have the relief cut or the spring.

The model number is usually stamped on the side of the receiver.  Some models it could be on underside of the firearm, just forward of the trigger guard.

Handguns

The Remington R1 1911 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.

Available in 9mm+P, this handgun points naturally and conceals easily.

Find all the details and specifications on this subcompact handgun HERE.

No, the Remington R1 is chambered to standard SAMMI specifications and is not rated for +P ammunition.

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.  Both the R1 Enhanced and R1 Carry models feature a more traditional Novak style sight cut. 

Additional Magazines may be purchased by visiting our website at www.remington.com   or   http://www.remington.com/shop . Parts may also be ordered direct by phone toll free, 800-243-9700. Office hours are Monday through Friday 9:00am to 5:00pm EST. 

Ammunition

Centerfire Rifle

Ammunition should be stored in the factory carton or package. The labeling and identification on the original package helps to ensure proper future use. Ammunition should be stored in a locked closet or cabinet in a cool, dry area away from children, and away from firearms. Obviously, poor storage conditions, such as a humid or corrosive atmosphere, could cause product damage immediately.

The shelf life of properly stored ammunition is approximately 10 years.

If ammunition is exposed to fire or if ammunition is older than shelf life, contact your local authorities for assistance with proper disposal.

We do not recommend, under any circumstance, interchanging .300 Win Mag, .300 Wby Mag, .300 Short Action Ultra Mag, or .300 Ultra Mag ammunition. These cartridges are not interchangeable. Doing so can cause serious malfunctions and/or personal injury.

We offer a general guideline for the amount of energy at the point of impact recommended to bring down particular game.

For deer, antelope, sheep and goat size game we recommend 900 ft lbs minimum, 1200 ft lbs is adequate and 1500 ft lbs is preferred.

For elk or bear up to 600 lbs: 1500 ft lbs minimum, 2000 ft lbs is adequate and 2500 ft lbs is preferred.

For large bear and moose: 2100 ft lbs minimum, 2800 ft lbs is adequate and 3500 ft lbs preferred.

(One foot pound is the amount of force required to lift one pound one foot from the ground.)

You can view ballistics for all of our current loads in the ballistic chart section of our online catalog at www.remington.com.  These charts will help you to determine the range you will have for hunting specific game and the advantages that one load offers compared to another.

We do not recommend, under any circumstance, interchanging Remington 300 Short Action Ultra Mag (300 SAUM) with the 300 Winchester Short Mag (300WSM). These cartridges are not interchangeable. Doing so can cause serious malfunctions and/or personal injury.

Many consumers request information regarding the use of NATO ammunition in their firearms.  While we realize that some ammunition guides show interchangeability between some of these rounds (5.56 in .223 Remington or 7.62 x 51 in .308 Winchester), use of and NATO cartridges is not recommended in a gun chambered for the commercial variation of the cartridge.  There are large pressure discrepancies between these two versions of a similar cartridge which could result in damage to the firearm or expedited wear on the gun itself. 

We do not recommend using any cartridge in any firearm whose barrel stamp does not match the head stamp of the cartridge exactly.

Per SAAMI specifications: The 5.56 and .223 Remington cartridges are similar, but the chambers of the guns and test barrels they are evaluated in are different. One of the key differences is the length of the throat or leade on the 5.56 chamber compared to the .223 Remington. It’s almost twice as long in the 5.56 chamber versus the .223 Remington chamber.

Typically, the 5.56 round is loaded to a higher velocity and pressure level than the .223 Remington.

Firing the 5.56 round in a .223 Remington chamber with the shorter leade can dramatically increase chamber pressures.

Therefore, we recommend against firing the 5.56 round in a .223 Remington chamber, unless the gun is marked with both cartridge designations such as our Model 7615 Patrol Rifle.

The shelf life of ammunition is about ten years. If ammunition is exposed to extreme temperatures, or if it is older than recommended shelf life, contact local authorities for instruction for proper disposal.

A general rule you can use follows.

For deer, antelope, sheep and goat we recommend at point of impact that you have 900 ft lbs minimum, 1200 ft lbs is suggested as adequate and 1500 ft lbs is the best for a humane kill.

For Elk or bear up to 600 lbs: minimum is 1500 ft lbs, adequate is 2000 ft lbs and preferred is 2500 ft lbs.

For large bear or moose: 2100 ft lbs minimum, 2800 ft lbs adequate and 3500 ft lbs is best.

You can view ballistics on the loads we offer in our online catalog at www.remington.com

The 6mm Remington has exactly the same case dimensions as the .244 Remington. They differ only in the fact that the 6mm Remington is loaded with bullets of up to 100-gr., whereas the .244 Remington was never loaded with bullets heavier than 90-gr. Ammunition marked 6mm Remington can be fired in .244 Remington chambers and vice versa. However, rifles marked .244 Remington will not stabilize the 100-gr. bullets. These rifles feature a 1 in 12-inch twist (ideal for 80-gr. bullets), while the 6mm Remington rifles generally feature a 1 in 9-inch twist (ideal for 100-gr. bullets).

When there is a concern regarding our ammunition, we request that you please call us at 1-800-243-9700 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.

The information that is presented in our rifle ammunition ballistics chart was gathered by testing our ammunition in near perfect conditions at a consistent low humidity temperature of 68°F. Our tests are conducted in an enclosed area, with a 24" test barrel in most cases, with the barreled action locked into a vice. Other factors including: the amount of wear and interior barrel dimensions in your firearm and the outside temperature effect the velocity obtained with your ammunition. As a result, your calculations may vary from what we have on our ballistics chart.

The PR3030A Accelerator bullet is designed with an exposed lead tip, in a configuration that is a bit more blunt than a typical .22 cal psp bullet. The geometry of the bullet tip combined with the fact that the recoil level of this round in a 30-30 rifle is very low; makes this round safe to shoot in rifles with tubular magazines.

As Remington Arms Company, Inc. does not provide all of the possible external ballistic data on each projectile we offer, we do recommend a book by the Title “UNDERSTANDING FIREARMS BALLISTICS” by Robert A.Rinker. This book can be purchased from Amazon.com. The ISBN number is 0-9645598-4-6. This book has in-depth ballistic information as well as formulas that will assist you in finding the information you require

Using the Model 700 and a scope set-up that adds one pound, gun weight for comparing the .300 Ultra Mag to the other .300's would run at 8 1/2 pounds. Using a computer program that takes the powder charge into account and an 8 1/2 pound gun for each test, the recoil energy is as follows:

.300 Win. Mag--180 grain bullet @ 2960 FPS--Recoil: 31.0 Ft-lbs
.300 Wby. Mag--180 grain bullet @ 3120 FPS--Recoil: 38.4 Ft-lbs
.300 Ultra Mag--180 grain bullet @ 3250 FPS--Recoil: 46.3 Ft-lbs

The .260 Remington was developed by Jim Carmichel as the 6.5mm "Panther". This cartridge combines moderate recoil with exceptional accuracy in short action rifles. We neck down a 7mm-08 Rem. case to 26 caliber. In terms of game-stopping bullet momentum, the .260 Rem. actually surpases the .270 Win with a 130gr bullet at 200 yards. 

​In centerfire rifles, the firing pin dents the primer which is located in the center of the cartridge base. 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.

You have two options:

  1. Use standard 30-06 Sprg 180-gr CoreLokt ammunition and simply tell the system you are using the CoreLokt Ultra Bonded product.
  2. You can also use the new HyperSonic® Rifle 30-06 SPRG 180-gr ammunition, but this is a little more involved:
    1. Power the optic ON.
    2. Wait for the optic to completely boot – about 4 - 7 seconds.
    3. Press <MODE> once to switch the optic to advanced operating mode.
    4. Press AND HOLD <MODE> for about 7 – 10 seconds.  After 3-4 seconds, the “HUD Console” will appear – DO NOT RELEASE THE MODE BUTTON.  After an additional ~5 seconds, and “Advanced HUD Console” will appear.
    5. Using the zoom out button, go down through the list of items until you reach MUZZLE ADJUST.  Using the wind rocker, increment the velocity to < 130 FPS >.
    6. Press <MODE> to exit the HUD Console.
    7. Remember to set the ammunition type to CLK in the HUD Console!
    8. NOTE:  This setting will be saved (even through powering off and back on) and will apply to all ammunition types.  So if you switch the Barnes load, you will need to set it back to < 0 FPS >.

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. On the front of the Managed-Recoil box we do print “May not operate in all recoil or gas-operated firearms”.

Designed by Shooting Times gun writer Layne Simpson in 1988, the 7mm STW (Shooting Times Westerner) is based on the original 8mm Remington Magnum necked down to 7mm (28 caliber). With its large case capacity and our 140-gr. Pointed Soft Point Core-Lokt bullet, it delivers greater velocity, energy and bullet momentum at flatter trajectories out to 500 yards than any other 7mm Magnum.

This cartridge takes full advantage of the 3.65-inch magazine length of the long-action Remington Model 700 rifle. 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.

Currently we are not offering any factory loads for the 7mm STW

The 45-70 we load is much less than 25,000 PSI or 25,000 CUP. That's why it says it is okay for any 45-70 gun in good condition right on the box. This includes original trapdoor Springfield rifles and both bullet weights that we currently offer.

If your firearm is chambered in a caliber you do not see listed in our current website, please contact one of the suppliers listed below, as they carry a full line of older and obsolete caliber ammunition loadings.

Remington no longer produces Accelerator ammunition for the .30-30 Win. or .30-06 Spfd. calibers.

Brass is one of the best suited metals for making cartridge cases because of a combination of characteristics: strength, ductility (the ability to bend and not break), corrosion resistance and reasonable cost. 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.

Shotshell

Ammunition should be stored in the factory carton or package. The labeling and identification on the original package helps to ensure proper future use. Ammunition should be stored in a locked closet or cabinet in a cool, dry area away from children, and away from firearms. Obviously, poor storage conditions, such as a humid or corrosive atmosphere, could cause product damage immediately.

The shelf life of properly stored ammunition is approximately 10 years.

If ammunition is exposed to fire or if ammunition is older than shelf life, contact your local authorities for assistance with proper disposal.

For Remington Turkey chokes, we recommend using lead shot or copper plated lead shot. The Remington Super Full, Extra Full, and Ventilator choke tubes are not recommended for use with steel shot.

Yes, however the choke constriction will yield patterns from 90-93%. This choke patterns too tight for waterfowl and would not be the optimal choke choice.

The shelf life of ammunition is about ten years. If ammunition is exposed to extreme temperatures, or if it is older than recommended shelf life, contact local authorities for instruction for proper disposal.

Yes. Remington has extensively tested Hevi-Shot® and Wingmaster HD through various Rem™ Chokes. You can safely shoot lead, steel, Hevi-Shot, or Wingmaster HD in the following Rem Chokes: 

Hevi-Shot choke

Wingmaster HD choke
Modified
Improved Cylinder
Skeet
Improved Skeet
Sporting Clays

In order to safely shoot lead, Hevi-Shot, Steel or Wingmaster HD in a Full Rem Choke the choke tube must state "For Steel or Lead Shot". Also, no larger than #2 should be used in the Full choke.

Tighter chokes than .665” do not improve pattern percentages to any extent, and in fact, begin to produce more open patterns.

Hevi-Shot can produce cosmetic rub marks in barrels and chokes, simply a change in surface finish. 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".

With the Remington wad column, the Hevi-Shot and Wingmaster HD pellets rest on a cushioned pad in the shot container that allows the pellets to flow better through the choke. In addition, the Remington Hevi-Shot shot and Wingmaster HD container is much thicker than previous loaded rounds and that thickness minimizes pellet contact with the barrel or choke.

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 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.

When there is a concern regarding our ammunition, we request that you please call us at 1-800-243-9700 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.

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.

20 gauge Modified or Improved Cylinder chokes are optimal chokes to use with steel shot.

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.

You can safely shoot lead, Hevi-Shot, Wingmaster HD, or steel shot in the following Rem Chokes:

  • Hevi-Shot choke
  • Modified
  • Improved Cylinder
  • Skeet
  • Improved Skeet
  • Sporting Clays

In order to safely shoot Hevi-Shot, lead or steel shot in a Full Rem Choke the choke tube must state "For Steel or Lead Shot". 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. Steel, Wingmaster HD or Hevi-Shot can potentially damage the rifling.

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.

A listing of the Remington extra barrels is available through our online store at http://www.remington.com/shop

We do not recommend the use of steel shot through any barrel manufactured before 1963 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 1963, 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.

These shots are alloy's of tungsten, nickel, and iron, bronze and a other metals with a density heavier than lead but with a hardness similar to 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. Choke tubes for use with these shots are available from Remington in improved cylinder, modified, full (lead or steel/Hevi Shot), and turkey extra full (lead or steel/Hevi Shot).

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. However, the manufacturer of the choke tube should be contacted concerning its recommendations regarding the suitability for use with Remington Hevi-Shot or Wingmaster HD loads.

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 .665”, pattern density begins to degrade.

Hevi-Shot and Wingmaster HD will produce the tightest patterns through a choke of approximately 0.675” diameter + .005”. We do not recommend Hevi-Shot or Wingmaster HD in lead only chokes however in laboratory testing, a standard full choke (.691”) produced an average pattern density of 88% in a 30 inch circle at 40 yards. The I.C. choke (.718”) produced an average of 70%, considered to be the industry standard pattern density for “full” choke.

Remington's Wingmaster HD extended Turkey choke tube has been optimized with this 0.675” diameter to consistently produce incredible 94% patterns.

SITUATION: Shotgun Hunting

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.

RECOMMENDED BARRELS:
Fully Rifled:

The Remington Premier Accutip Bonded Sabot Slug is the ultimate in long range sabot slug hunting.
The Remington Premier Core-Lokt Ultra Bonded Sabot Slugs is the ultimate in accuracy for shotgun sabot slugs.
The Remington Premier Copper Solid Sabot Slugs offer 2x caliber expansion and virtually 100% weight retention for best penetration.
The Remington Buckhammer is a high performance lead slug that's very affordable.

Smooth Bore:
Remington Slugger Rifled Slugs (with Improved Cylinder choke tube)
Remington Express Buckshot (with Full choke tube)

RECOMMENDED LOADS:
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. Also, available in Slugger Managed Recoil Rifled Slug.

Remington Premier Accutip Bonded Sabot Slug
Designed for use in fully rifled shotgun barrels, Remington Premier Accutip Sabot Slugs are ideal for longer shots. Each slug is encased in a high-performance plastic sabot that greatly enhances in-flight performance and, thus, accuracy. Upon impact, they reliably expand to 1.5-2X original caliber with very high weight retention.

OTHER POPULAR LOADS:
Remington Express Buckshot:
Delivers concentrated, balanced patterns. Ideal at very short distances ranging from 25 yards and closer.

Express Managed-Recoil™ Buckshot
With less felt recoil than full velocity loads, Express Managed-Recoil Buckshot is an ideal close-range performer. 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. Choke tube manufacturers such as Rhino, Patternmaster, Carlson's, Truglo and Trulock offer Turkey choke tubes that are suitable for use with Hevi-Shot as well as Wingmaster HD.

There is no difference in the Unibody hull of the 20 gauge PL and SP. The 12 gauge both have a Unibody hull however the PL is black and the SP is the standard green. 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.

Contact the following company for additional chokes that will interchange and accept steel shot.

The 105 Cti will cycle both 2 3/4" and 3" magnum shotshells. The minimum recommended payload is a 1 oz load at a minimum velocity of 1300 fps or 3 1/4 dram or an 1 1/8 oz load at 1145 fps or 2 3/4 dram equivalent. It is a combination of velocity and shot charge weight that cycle an autoloading shotgun. The 105 CTI will function 3" magnum shotshells with payload weights up to 2 ounces.

Hevi-Shot doesn't rust like steel shot. However, wet shells can have other significant problems. If the powder and/or primer have gotten wet, delayed ignition, poor ignition or misfires can result. There is a chance of having a wad stick in the barrel or other problems arising.

BAR is a pressure designation used in European markets.

The 1050 Bar and the shell length in millimeters printed on our shells are required by some international government agencies. The 1050 Bar actually references the shotgun not the ammunition. The markings are in place so that we can sell our products all over the world.

Handgun

The shelf life of ammunition is about ten years. If ammunition is exposed to extreme temperatures, or if it is older than recommended shelf life, contact local authorities for instruction for proper disposal.

While the frame and grip size are the same on both the R1 and Commander pistols, the slide and barrel are approximately 5/8” shorter on the Commander. The standard R1 features a 5” barrel while the Commander features a 4-1/2” barrel. 

When there is a concern regarding our ammunition, we request that you please call us at 1-800-243-9700 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.

Remington +P ammunition is loaded to deliver greater velocity and down range energy than standard ammunition with the same grain weight projectile.

Our +P ammunition should only be used in firearms specifically designed to handle +P ammunition.

The RM380 is Double Action Only handgun with no external safety. 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. 

Rimfire

No.

The 17HMR is a rimfire cartridge and is chambered for specific rimfire rifles. It ignites by the firing pin hitting the rim of the cartridge. This ammunition is NOT interchangeable with the .17 caliber centerfire rifle where the firing pin will contact the center of the cartridge for ignition. Always be sure to check any ammunition for correct caliber or gauge before using in your firearms.

The shelf life of ammunition is about ten years. If ammunition is exposed to extreme temperatures, or if it is older than recommended shelf life, contact local authorities for instruction for proper disposal.

In centerfire rifles, the firing pin dents the primer which is located in the center of the cartridge base. 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.

Remington introduced the Model 591 and Model 592, along with 5mm Remington rimfire ammunition in 1970. We believed that the 5mm cartridge, with a velocity of 2105 feet per second, was superior to the .22 Win. Mag cartridge with a velocity of 1910 feet per second. Unfortunately, we were unable to convince the shooting public. Therefore, we chose to discontinue manufacturing the Model 591 and Model 592 in 1974. Manufacturing of the 5mm ammunition was discontinued in 1982.

Additionally, Aguilla, a Mexico based ammunition manufacturer is now producing 5mm Remington Magnum ammo. It will be marketed in the U.S. under the Centurion name.

Components

Generally,  no.

The 97* and 209P (Premier) are interchangeable in Alliant powder shotshell data.

The 57* and the 209 (non-Premier) were both different from the 209P (Premier).

The 57* was smaller in diameter, and the 209 (non-Premier) was slightly hotter.

The new 209 STS primer is interchangeable with the 209P (Premier) primer in most recipes. It is always best to check with the powder manufacturer when you have a question about a specific recipe. The 209-4 is a primer specifically made for use in .410 shotshell loads although there are no current recipes listed by the powder manufacturers using it. The 209-4 should not be used in gauges other than the .410 due to its lower energy level.

In pistol cartridges, the 1-1/2 small pistol primer should not be used in the 357 Magnum, 357 SIG or the 40 S&W. The 5-1/2 small pistol primer is the proper selection for these rounds.
In rifle cartridges, the 6-1/2 small rifle primer should not be used in the 17 Remington, 222 Remington, 204 Ruger or the 223 Remington. The 7-1/2 BR is the proper small rifle primer for these rounds.

Warning: When primers are selected incorrectly, misfires, damage to your firearm, and/or personal injury may occur.

We do not recommend using pellets and granular powder at the same time in the Model 700 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.

Most of our primers are produced from brass and/or brass-plated steel. 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. In effect, a shotshell with a 2-1/2 dram equivalent rating would be equal in velocity to a shell loaded with 2-1/2 drams of black powder--making the assumption that both shells contain the same amount of shot. 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.

WARNING: 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. 11 percussion caps, particularly with the use of Pyrodex pellets. 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 700 in-line muzzleloading rifles. The Musket Cap Nipple is offered separately and may be available directly from the factory.

To check availability or to place an order direct, call our Parts Department at 1-800-243-9700, Mon-Fri, 9-5 EST.

General information concerning reloading may be obtained from the National Rifle Association through their online store at www.nrastore.com.
Reloading manuals and recipes are available through the following companies:

Alliant Powder-- (800) 276-9337
IMR Powder-- (518) 563-2253
Accurate Powder-- (800) 416-3006
Hodgdon Powder-- (800) 622-4366
Barnes Bullets-- (800) 574-9200
Nosler Bullets-- (800) 285-3701
Sierra Bullets-- (800) 223-8799
Hornady Bullets-- (800) 338-3220

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. It is a SAAMI procedure with a Mil-Spec heritage.

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.

The STS hulls use the Figure 8 wads for the 1 1/8 ounce loads and the TGT 12 wad for 1 ounce loads. 

Our one-piece shot cup / wad columns remain the unmatched choice for everything from heavy, 10 gauge magnums to the lightest small-bore target loads - including the .410. And for critical 12-gauge clay target loads, our exclusive Figure 8™ wad belongs on every reloading bench. For 1-oz. 12-gauge loads, use our volume calibrated TGT-12 wad. Both the Figure 8 and TGT-12 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 musket cap nipple used on the Model 700 ML (produced 1996-2004) can be installed/removed easily with a 1/4" open-end wrench or socket.

In the Model 700 ML (muzzleloader) we have found in our testing that FFg blackpowder, Pyrodex RS and Pyrodex Select provided the best results. The new Pyrodex pellets can also be used--up to 150-gr. maximum. However, we have found our best results came with 90 to 120 grains of the granular blackpowder or equivalent. For complete load data, please refer to the Model 700 ML owner's manual.

Suggested Loading Data
This data was compiled from testing done by Remington® Arms using both .50 and .54 caliber Remington projectiles in the Model 700™ ML rifle. The Model 700 ML barrels are rifled with 1 in 28" twist in both .50 and .54 caliber. All testing was done with 2F or FFg black powder.
WARNING: NEVER EXCEED THE MAXIMUM CHARGE WEIGHT LISTED FOR THE PROJECTILE YOU ARE USING. NEVER SUBSTITUTE ANY QUANTITY OF ALTERNATE POWDER TYPE OR GRANULATION. 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.
WARNING: 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.

We recommend the use of either 209 PSTS or the 209 PSTSB primers.

For more information regarding reloading, please check your current reloading manual and powder companies.

Yes. The Remington 209 Primer conversion kit will work on any caliber Remington Model 700 Muzzleloader (produced 1996-2004).

The Model 700 ML conversion kit contains the firing pin assembly, musket cap nipple, the 209 primer nipple, 209 de-priming tool, and the bolt disassembly tool. The nipple will also be available separately. 

These kits were all sold as accessories, and with the discontinuation of the Model 700 ML, they may become more difficult to find.  We no longer house these parts and would encourage you to check with local gunsmiths in your area to see if you can get them

Remington reloading components can be ordered either through your local Remington dealer or from one of the many companies that specialize in reloading supplies.

2. A representative from the repair facility will contact you with information in regards to your knife.

If it is deemed that your knife is not a manufacture defect you will be contacted before further steps are taken to repair your knife.

Most of our design & manufacturing positions have a mechanical engineering background.  Any college or university with and accredited and reputable mechanical engineering program with a discipline in the core curriculum would be an asset.  You could further define within this curriculum or specialize in chemical engineering or a metallurgical focus but this would somewhat limit the opportunities.  Unfortunately, to our knowledge there are no institutions with a core focus on design or manufacturing program supporting specifically the firearms industry.  

There are a number of schools which do offer a gunsmithing curriculum which would aid or support the emphasis or focus of gun knowledge.

A lot of our early rifles do not have serial numbers. Before 1968 it was not mandatory for us to use serial numbers. To check the rifles manufacturing date, we would use the barrel code. The barrel code is a series of 2-3 letters found on the barrel close to the receiver, on the left hand side. If you contact us at 1-800-243-9700 or contact us with the model of your firearm and 2-3 barrel code, we can determine the date of manufacture.

On the 12 gauge firearm, the shotgun barrel is on top and the centerfire barrel is on the bottom.

On the 20 gauge and .410, the shotgun barrel is on the bottom and the rimfire rifle barrel is on top.

Depending on the size of the package, our parts are shipped via the Postal Service and UPS Ground. Most barrels are shipped via UPS or Fed Ex.

Due to the many variables involved with valuation, we would encourage you to refer to the many publications that are available on the subject of gun values or have it appraised by a collector. Many of these books are available through public libraries or local bookstores. For your convenience we have provided a listing of the more popular books:

Remington no longer offers the Spartan series of firearms.  The difference between Spartan guns and the EAA guns is that the Spartan guns were built to Remington standards which require the wood to have no more than 2 blemishes, flathead screws are used and it is marked Spartan by Remington on the receiver.

The R2000 Electronic Ear Muffs were manufactured in England where the noise reduction rating is not required. However, all sounds over 84 decibels are blocked.

The NRR is the number of decibels that the ear protection is capable of blocking. For instance if you are shooting and it produces 128 decibels of sound, the M28 will reduce the level you hear to 100 decibels.

Transportation and disposal of clay targets must be in accordance with applicable federal, state/provincial, and local regulations. Remove nonusable solid material and/or contaminated soil, for disposal in an approved and permitted landfill.

The Rangemaster is a one piece eye / ear protector. The easily stored, compact, folding construction system offers a noise reduction rating of 26, while also providing UVEX protected rim and eye lens. The Rangemaster fits comfortably over most prescription glasses. The innovative design of the Rangemaster Eye and Hearing Protection System does not allow for the separation of the glasses from the earmuffs.

Depending on the model of firearm, the warranty may be either two years or one year.  To view our complete firearms warranty information, please click HERE.

The warranty is 1 year from the date of purchase for the original owner. The warranty covers manufacturer's defects and workmanship. The wood is covered under warranty for 60 days from the date of purchase.

The term of Remington's Limited Warranty is one year from the date of purchase to the original purchaser.

Stain selection depends entirely on how dark you desire your stock to be. The final choice should be governed by your taste. Applying a small amount of stain to the barrel channel inletting may be helpful to your decision making process.

NOTE: For best results, follow the stain manufacturer's directions closely, since the method of application and drying and curing time may vary.

There are many types of finish available on the market that will give a beautiful, durable finish, and unless you are familiar with the pros and cons of each finish, seek the advice of a finish expert. Your local hardware store may be a good place to look.

Boiled linseed oil or tung oil is an excellent choice of a wood sealer that penetrates and hardens to form a durable, low gloss finish. These finishes usually can be applied with a clean rag and allowed to soak in before the excess is removed. To enhance the natural wood grain, several coats are recommended with a buff of 4/0 steel wool between coats.

If you need further assistance, we suggest taking your firearm to a Remington Authorized Repair Center. 

The Spartan Gunworks firearms are produced in Baikal, Russia.

With a rich history starting in 1816, Remington Arms is the oldest gun manufacturer in America.  You can find more information on our timeline, or through a number of books that have been produced including "Remington, America's Oldest Gunmaker" by Roy Marcot or "The Art of Remington Arms" by Tom Davis.  There is also an organization "Remington Society of America" that continues to research and update information on our almost 200 years of history.

Unfortunately the Spartan line of firearms has been discontinued by Remington in 2008.  There will undoubtedly be some guns left on the marketplace for some time, but finding them will simply be a matter good fortune if there is remaining inventory at your dealer or distributor.  Another potential is to look for used models through various online dealers.
