Looking to have a barrel restamped. This is the "E. Remington & Sons, Ilion, NY USA" lettering. Turnbull doesn't have the stamp. Any suggestions???

If I understand correctly, Turnbull does not restamp restored guns; they have some skilled engravers who can turn out a close facsimile of the original stamping. I think that is what you will have to do. Having a stamp made is not impossible, but I think it would cost more than having the marking engraved.

You could contact here for an idea of cost:

Other alternatives are laser engraving and EDM. Both will look far less original than good engraving, though.

I strongly advise against trying to DIY with single letter hand stamps - unless you are willing to practice a lot, the result will likely be less than satisfactory.
