    My brother showed me a Remington 572 Field Master, one that I never knew exsisted. The barrel and reciever are a brown/red in color and looks like anodizing and the barrel is made of magnesium. It's super light and in excellant shape. Does anyone have any info on this.

    Thanks.

    Guns - out

    That gun is a 572 Lightweight. The barrel is aluminum alloy, not magnesium, and has a steel sleeve. They made 34,785 in 1958-62.

    They made them in Buckskin Tan, Teal Blue, and Crow-Wing Black. They all bring a nice premium over the standard 572 if in top condition, with the scarcer blue bringing top dollar, around $800 if new in the box.
