How can you tell when your Remington gun was made?

Remington used a 2 or 3 letter code stamped on the barrel to indicate month and year. These are very small letters, located on the LEFT side of the barrel (as you are holding the gun) about 1 inch from the receiver. You may need a good light and a magnifier. They will be a combination of the letters BLACKPOWDERX. Once you find them, go to the Remington Collector's Association website, and use the table there. This will date rifles fairly well. Shotguns may have a replacement barrel, and this may not be as accurate for them. Unlike other makers, the serial number is pretty useless for dating a Remington.
