Noob is confused

Post by mmikem » Sat Aug 15, 2020 7:45 am

Hi all,
I purchased a Remington 870 Express Super Mag. My receiver serial number ends in an "H" and my receiver is stamped "Remington 870 SUPER MAG". The barrel is stamped "12GA, 2 3/4" and 3", 3 1.2" Only with Super Mag Receiver"...12GA shells fit inside my mag tube...

the serial list in the link below says H designates .410GA ;
#0000000H H Small frame .410 bore .410 2 1/2″ or 3″

...Shouldn't my serial number end with an "A" ;
#0000000A A Full size frame 12 gauge 12 2 3/4″, 3″, or 3 1/2″

What am I missing here?
Thanks,
Mike

That one of those pieces of information is wrong, or Remington changed their system at some point. Just call Remington customer service and ask.
