Manufacture Code On Your Remington’s Serial Number:

Remington Year of Manufacture Codes maybe found on the barrel of your Remington rifle (or shotgun) on the left side, just forward of the receiver. The first letter of the Code is the month of manufacture, followed by one or two letters which are the year of manufacture. For shotguns with removable barrels, the code will be valid for the manufacture of the barrel (the receiver and barrels do get switched around).

According to the “Blue Book of Gun Values”, the coding continues as follows:

Month Codes: (first letter):

B – L – A – C – K – P – O – W – D – E – R – X
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 9 – 10 – 11 – 12
