Serial Numbers on Remington Firearms

If you are looking for more information about your particular Remington firearms, then the serial number can give you some useful insight into the date of manufacture of your specific gun.  In the picture below, you will see an example from a newer Remington 597 rifle with a manufacturing date of April 2006.  You can use the serial number to quickly decipher the date by using the chart below.  To determine the date, you need to look for the letters stamped on the left side of the barrel.  The first letter will give you the month code.  The next letter (possibly 2 letters) will give you the year code.

Please note that during the years of 1999, 2000, & 2001 (highlighted in red above), Remington did not stamp the date code on the barrels.  The date code during these years was just placed on the box.  Now, this doesn't help much in many circumstances, because how likely is it that the box will still be around for as long as the gun exists.  A gun made of steel and wood can stand the test of time.  A paper box will likely not.  Most people will have disposed of the box a long time ago, and so it's unfortunate that the serial numbers were not stamped on the barrel during those 3 years.  Thankfully, after 2001, Remington went back to having the serial numbers stamped on the barrel again. 

One thing that you might notice when you examine the chart above, the letters for the year code repeat themselves.  This means that sometimes you will have to consider the specific model of Remington firearm that you have.  For instance, if you have a Remington rifle that you know was made a long time ago, then you won't expect the year date code to be from recent times.  Some models of Remington guns were only produced during a certain time period.  Knowing that can also help you to better decipher the date codes from your Remington firearms serial numbers.
