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 removeable barrels, the code will be valid for the manufacture of the barrel; maybe for the receiver, as 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

* the years 1943 though 1953 had double letters: ie, MM = 1943

As maybe seen, the year code letters duplicate; some knowledge of when the model was introduced should resolve the actual year of manufacture.

I have contacted Remington and they confirmed that information above is correct.

You are all probably familiar with the standard Remington 870 shotgun. But there are also other versions of the shotgun model including the Remington 870 Express and the Remington 870 Police. The main differences between these two shotguns have to do with the parts that they’re comprised of and how they’re assembled. Remington 870 Police shotguns go through a more thorough quality control inspection before they are released. Aside from a visual inspection, the functionality of the shotguns is tested along with their firing capabilities. Once that is done, they go through one more final inspection before they get approved. The 870 Police shotguns are built in a highly secured area of a weapons plant located in Ilion, New York. This is an area that only creates military and law enforcement shotguns.

Shotgun Training (Competition Shooting, IPSC, Dynamic Shooting)

Shotgun Training (Competition Shooting, IPSC, Dynamic Shooting)

Today I have spent several hours on a shooting range on a shotgun tranining with Sergii Streltsov, Champion of Ukraine (standard-manual division).

Sergii is a very good instructor. He shares his experience and helps shoot faster and more accurately. Also, he gives a lot of advices about shotgun shooting and reloading techniques.

Other important parts he teaches are tactical and psychological trainings. Tactical preparation allows you to choose gameplan for each stage and situation. Psychological training enables you to shoot fast and accurate under stress.
