With the hundreds of different Remington models produced over the past 200 years, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the age of your firearm.The following letters correspond to the months of the year, for example B=January, L= February and so on: Using barrel codes (such as those listed above) to date the manufacture are reliable on Remington rifles, as the company rarely changed barrels on a customer’s rifle.Using these barrel codes to date a shotgun is somewhat unreliable, as shotgun barrels are often interchanged at random.If you find marks on the underside of the barrel, they will more than likely be fitters or assembly marks, which mean nothing as to dating the firearm.I have seen one EARLY 740 S/N 54,9XX that has a barrel date coded May of 1969, which apparently had been sent back to the factory and rebarreled with a original 740 barrel instead of a 742 which was in production at that time.
