Thank you I just recently purchased a Remington 1100 shotgun that has a serial number on the receiver that is "L79xxxx V". Thanks I just recently purchased a Remington 1100 shotgun that has a serial number on the receiver that is "L79xxxx V". Thanks All the codes above refer to the barrel codes, not the serial number. I'm trying to figure out when it was made and from what I read on a site it stated the first letter would be the month and then the first two numbers would be the year (so mine would be Feb 1979?!? I'm trying to figure out when it was made and from what I read on a site it stated the first letter would be the month and then the first two numbers would be the year (so mine would be Feb 1979?!? M/870 LETTER PREFIX 1950 TO APPROX 1968: NO SERIAL NUMBER PREFIX 1968 TO PRESENT: LETTERS USED (IN SEQUENCE) S-68, T-74, V-78, W-84, X-90, A-91, B-94, C-97, D-01, AB-05 LETTER SUFFIX (DESIGNATES GAUGE) V 12 GA. They continued to mark the date code on the end flap of the shipping box.They resumed stamping the date code on the barrel on 10/1/01. It says it does, but I find no codes stamped on my barrel that look like what's described here.Remington never (*) used serial numbers to identify the date of manufacture of it's firearms, they however stamped a date code (spelled out below) by the first letter meaning the month and the last letter the year of manufacture. On the RH side of the barrel will be a Magnaflux, Remington proof & a test mark If a gun is returned to the factory as a fire damaged, or blown up firearm, the factory will stamp it as a prefix to their date code with a #4 on the barrel and return it un-repaired.BARREL DATE CODE - stamped exposed on LH top rear of barrel after 1920 the following will only be stamped where applicable #2 Part order barrel (not originally assembled to firearm) #3 Service section received #4 Return as received #5 Employee sale R. Then if the gun is ever subsequently returned to a warranty center or the factory by ANYONE, they will refuse to work on it as an unsafe firearm.
Why is it important to know the specific year of manufacture?
I am mainly curious as to finding out the year of manufacture (as close as possible) for my own knowledge.
Most of these guns have been handed down to my from my late grandfather so I dont know exactly when they were manufactured or when/where he obtained them from.

For example, the Western Field "model 50" was a Browning-designed, Stevens-built pump shotgun ... Serial numbers were not sequential, so only Winchester can be more specific (if they even have the records).
and 20 years later, it was a re-badged Glennfield model 60 semi-auto .22. Winchester Model 62 - That serial number indicates that it is actually a Model 62A. (That 'A' matters, if you are going to sell it or repair it. Same basic design, but with some important internal differences.) Marlin 995SS - 1996.

Sadly, pre 1968 there were times when companies did not keep track or lost records... If you find one with no date code you'll need to contact Remington. Some limited runs used different systems, but it works for most. made after the 1960's have no on line data that I've ever located.
