How can I tell how old my Remington firearm is?
If you will call or email us the serial number and model number we can determine the approximate age of your firearm.
Serial numbers were not required until 1968. For models without a serial number, we may be able to determine the age by the 2-3 letters that are stamped on the barrel.
Contact us through our Help Center by email or call us at 800-243-9700 Mon-Fri 9-5 EST.

Could use more info, such as markings on the barrel and or breach. The Remington rolling block type single shot goes back to the 1860'S. The first 22 calibers around 1888. The rolling block went through 8 changes. The different types or changes are where various pins and screws are located, size and shape of hammers and triggers. The New Model Number 4, made from 1890 - 1933 came standard in 22 cal. with a 22 1/2 inch Oct. barrel. It will have a small lever on the right side of the breach. Approx 50,000 of these where made between the years noted. You could very well have a model 1, 2 or a model 7, which will be rare if in very good shape as only 1000, No. 7's where made. Tracking the serial number will be hard unless you contact Remington.

Remingtons manufactured between 1921 and 1972 have a code located on the left side of the barrel near the frame that identifies the year and month of manufacture.
If yours is between 1921 and 1936, it should have two letters, one for month, and one for year.
If it doesn't have this code, it was made between 1909 and 1920.
REMINGTON Customer Service (1-800-243-9700 & follow the prompts) will look up your serial number and verify the age of your firearm.
Just to give some scope, serial number 757132 was 1929, about 569578 after yours.

The only way to get that information is to go to a public library that has firearms catalogs and look it up. You cannot get that information anywhere on the internet.
