    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

    Year:______Code: [second (and third*) letters]
    1950_______ WW
    1951_______ XX
    1952_______ YY
    1953_______ ZZ
    1954_______ A
    1955_______ B
    1956_______ C
    1957_______ D
    1958_______ E
    1959_______ F

    1960_______ G
    1961_______ H
    1962_______ J
    1963_______ K
    1964_______ L
    1965_______ M
    1966_______ N
    1967_______ P
    1968_______ R
    1969_______ S

    1970_______ T
    1971_______ U
    1972_______ W
    1973_______ X
    1974_______ Y
    1975_______ Z
    1976_______ I
    1977_______ O
    1978_______ Q
    1979_______ V

    1980_______ A
    1981_______ B
    1982_______ C
    1983_______ D
    1984_______ E
    1985_______ F
    1986_______ G
    1987_______ H
    1988_______ I
    1989_______ J

    1990_______ K
    1991_______ L
    1992_______ M
    1993_______ N
    1994_______ O
    1995_______ P
    1996_______ Q
    1997_______ R
    1998_______ S
    1999_______ T

    * 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

    O.K. A Remington 11-48," W D P 42" on the barrel. What's the year of man. My guess would be Aug. of 57. But the P 42 throw a curve. What do ya'll think?
