Serial Number is N65xxxxV. It's a 12ga, full fixed choke 2 3/4" and there is a code on the left side of the barrel by the receiver that is either "FB" or "EB" and then the number 89. Thanks for the help.

Well Badger I "thought" the Remington web site had a link with this info.

I apologize. If it is there - someone please point it out and advise. Thanks!

Looked there first. There is a site for pre-1972 guns, but I have a feeling this is an 80's gun based on certain clues. Might be wrong, might be a 70's gun. Would still like help with the serial number. Nudie shots will follow when I get around to it. Working late tonight. It's pretty, though, that's for sure.

Well "somewhere" there is a site. I even did a search on TFL. I swear we had a source for this. I crashed HDD back whenever...

Badger, sounds like a beaut, looking forward to pics. By golly we'll make a backup of these sources if-n we get 'em again. :)

I believe it's EB, because Remington doesn't use F as the first letter of the date code. That would mean October of 1981.

See this thread at RimfireCentral ( for the list of date codes.

Remington Year of Manufacture Codes maybe found on the barrel of your Remington rifle [or shotgun] on the left side, just forward of the receiver; the first letter of the Code is the month of manufacture, followed by one or two letters which are the year of manufacture. For shotguns with removeable barrels, the code will be valid for the manufacture of the barrel; maybe for the receiver, as barrels do get switched around.

According to the "Blue Book of Gun Values", the coding continues as follows:

Month Codes: [first letter]
B - L - A - C - K - P - O - W - D – E -- R -- X
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12

(second (and third*) letters)
Year_Code Year___Code
1930___ Y 1970___ T
1931___ Z 1971___ U
1932___ A 1972___ W
1933___ B 1973___ X
1934___ C 1974___ Y
1935___ D 1975___ Z
1936___ E 1976___ I
1937___ F 1977___ O
1938___ G 1978___ Q
1939___ H 1979___ V

1940___ J 1980___ A
1941___ K 1981___ B
1942___ L 1982___ C
1943_ MMZ 1983___ D
1944__ NN 1984___ E
1945__ PP 1985___ F
1946__ RR 1986___ G
1947__ SS 1987___ H
1948__ TT 1988___ I
1949__ UU 1989___ J

1950__ WW 1990___ K
1951__ XX 1991___ L
1952__ YY 1992___ M
1953__ ZZ 1993___ N
1954___ A 1994___ O
1955___ B 1995___ P
1956___ C 1996___ Q
1957___ D 1997___ R
1958___ E 1998___ S
1959___ F 1999___ T

1960___ G 2000___ U
1961___ H 2001___ W
1962___ J 2002___ X
1963___ K 2003___ Y
1964___ L 2004___ Z
1965___ M
1966___ N
1967___ P
1968___ R
1969___ S

* the years 1943 though 1953 had double letters: ie, MM = 1943

As maybe seen, the year code letters duplicate; some knowledge of when the model was introduced should resolve the actual year of manufacture.

Now that I've found it, I have to wonder if my three full-choked 30" Vent Rib barrels are really going to do me any good. One is from the same year and the other seems to be a 1974 model. YES, I DO NOW HAVE ONE 1100 and THREE 30" Vent Rib FULL CHOKE Barrels to go along with it.


At any rate, I'll add some search words so people can search for the codes:

Not sure this is the best photo. Still trying to figure out how to get good long-gun photos.
