No, that is the year that the manufactorer submitted designs for a patent. The actual manufacter date is probably different.
As an example, the model 1894 Winchester...the one that comes to mind as the "cowboy rifle", the "saddle gun", etc was patented in 1894 but is still being made well over 100 years later. Here is an example:
The only way to tell the manufacture date is by the serial number which you can trace through various sites. If you are talking about an 1886 Winchester, here is a link that will tell you the date:
If that is a US Patent, you can look it up on Google, and tell when the patent was issued, but it cannot date the gun- other than we know it would have been made AFTER the patent was issued.
If you mean "patent" dates, no, that does not necessarily indicate when the gun was manufactured. The patent date indicates when the design was patented.
The only thing certain is it was made at some point after that patent was awarded, which was November 1976.
No way to tell. You can look up that patent, and it will tell you what year that patent was granted- but there is no way of telling when it was made, other than AFTER that patent was granted.
Can't be answered.
The gun was made in 1908.
No. Many manufacturers have used Browning's patents. Your gun was made by Savage/Stevens. email@example.com
The last patent date will tell you that it was made that date or later.
My shotgun says patent 1900 everything else seems the same
i have a Winchester 37. 28inch that says patent pending . Any idea the value of this gun
Daisy started in 1886 in Plymouth Michigan.
You will have to check with the US Patent Office
John Browning made his first gun at the age of 10, but his first patent was in 1878, it was the 1878 Single Shot Rifle.
I would have to assume that you have a semi-auto shotgun.If your shotgun has a slight hump to the back of the reciever then it was a shotgun made with a browning patent and would have to be listed on the gun along with the royaltys paid to his patent.
you will have to do research in the US Patent Office

You have an Ithaca Baker model made in 1886 if it is a sxs double not stated in your ques
browning and Remington are two different companies, its not possible to have one companies gun under another companies patent.I beg to differ! I have a Remington model 81 woodmaster in 300sav.caliber that is made by remington and has John M.Brownings patent marked right on the barrel.Brownings patent for the remington models 8,and 81 were from the year 1900.The Remington model 8 was made from 1906-1936,and the model 81 from 1936-1950.All Winchester model 1886 rifles were made under a patent frpm John M.Browning.If you can re-post your question with the model number of your Remington,and caliber along with a 2 or 3 letter code found on the barrel of your firearm,I will be able to date your firearm for you.
The value of a Nitro Marvel 1886 16 gauge shot gun in working condition is between $199 and $165. As a parts gun only it is valued at $39.

Browning did not manufacture the gun. The gun was made by Stevens, using a Browning patent. Value is minimal, below $200.
I have the same rifle. =) From oldguns.net it looks like about 200,000 were made somewhere between 1938 and 1945.
