Manufacturing Date?

Post by let_mino » Sun Apr 12, 2020 4:32 pm

Hi, all. Could someone confirm the manufacturing date on this 1100? I searched the forum and came up with August of 1981. Could someone confirm this please. See the picture below. Thanks in advance!

Sadly the barrel date codes only identify the barrel manufacture date, since barrels are interchangeable. Unless you know absolutely that yours has never been replaced or swapped, calling/e-mailing Remington customer service with your receiver serial number is the only true check of manufacturing date.

You can also tell if you barrel matches the serial number range and letter/s.

Great point, give Remington both the serial number and barrel code and they can probably identify if they are age-equivalent.

Thanks, all! I gave Remington a call and they were able to provide the correct year based on those two criterias. FYI, below is the extension # for MF date inquiries:

800.243.9700 ext 7
