Remington in sinovi je ustanovil orožar Eliphalet Remington leta 1816. Podjetje je izdelovalo muškete, puške, puške in kmečko orodje. Leta 1857 je Fordyce Beals oblikoval prvi revolver podjetja. To žepno orožje je temeljilo na pištoli, ki jo je izdelal Derringer. Beals je nato nadaljeval s proizvodnjo standardnega remingtona Remington. Med ameriško državljansko vojno je bil Remington drugi najpopularnejši revolver po tistem, ki ga je izdelal Colt. Mnogi strelci, tudi Frank James, so trdili, da je remington Remington boljši od tistega, ki ga je izdelal Samuel Colt.

Lansko pomlad so Nemci na odprtem prostoru v Lagerju postavili ogromne šotore. Za celotno dobro sezono je vsak poskrbel za več kot 1.000 mož: zdaj so šotore podrli, v naših kočah pa se je nabralo več kot 2.000 gostov. Stari zaporniki smo vedeli, da Nemcem te nepravilnosti niso všeč in da se bo kmalu zgodilo nekaj, kar bo zmanjšalo naše število.


Remingtonovi revolverji - zgodovina

Cevi pušk Eliphalet Remington in#8217s so med puškarji ugledale zaradi natančnosti
začenši s svojimi nastopi na tekmah. Leta 1828 se je celotni kovačnici posvetil izdelavi
sodov in je leta 1845 dobil državno pogodbo za 5000 pušk. Njegovi sinovi Philo, Samuel in
Eliphalet Jr je prišel v trgovino, E. Remington & amp Sons pa so se odprli leta 1856 v Illionu v New Yorku.

V letih 1857 in 1858 je bilo proizvedenih približno 2.500 prvih modelov, sledilo jim je 1.200
drugi modeli in 1500 tretjih modelov.

Ko so žepni revolverji našli prednost na trgu, je Beals začel oblikovati večji in več
revolver, ki ga je enostavno izdelati
za vojsko. Rezultat je bil
.44 cal. Remington-Beals
Vojaški revolver.
2500 jih je

od leta 1860 do
1862, poklicano

datum.

Remington ni spregledal priljubljenosti, ki jo je Colt prinesel kalibru .36. Osem tisoč
manjše puške so bile izdelane v dveh letih proizvodnje Remington-Beals ’, znane kot
Mornarica 1858. Leta 1862 je bilo izdelanih še 5000 izboljšanih mornaric, znanih kot 1861.
Izboljšana Remington New Model Army .44 je bila predstavljena leta 1863 in izdelana
do leta 1875. Oba novejša modela sta vključevala izboljšave in pištola je bila tako dobro sprejeta, da je
Med letoma 1863 in 1875 je bilo proizvedenih 132.000, skupaj z 32.000 novimi mornaricami. The
vlada je sčasoma kupila okoli 110,00 vojaških in mornariških revolverjev po pogodbah, ki
dosegel 29.196.820,01 USD pred koncem vojne in#8217.

Čeprav Remington ni spremljala nobena romantika razvoja revolverja Colt
1858, so bili priljubljeni pri vojakih Unije in Konfederacije. Trden okvir, robusten
nakladalno ročico in enostavno zamenljiv cilinder iz leta 1858 in naslednika
predstavljal pomembne izboljšave v primerjavi s tolkalnim Coltom. Poleg večje moči,
kompaktnost, preprostost in uporabnost Remingtona, so bili njegovi proizvodni stroški bistveno nižji
kot enakovredni Colts. Po vojni je javnost široko sprejela boj, ki je bil dokazan
pištole in dizajn so na trgu prevladovali do Coltove predstavitve svoje kartuše
streljanje 1873. Prihodnja doba tolkalnega revolverja se je končala leta 1875, ko je Remington
opustil proizvodnjo svojih tolkalnih pištol za svoj prvi kartušni revolver.

Oživitev in izpopolnitev Bealsove zasnove in višina tolkalnega revolverja
razvoj je prišel skoraj sto let kasneje, leta 1972, ko je Ruger's#uvedel svoj primeren
imenovan Old Army.

Remingtonovi revolverji - zgodovina

Dva vladna avtomobila .45 avtomobilov z znamenitim imenom Remington sta služila oboroženim silam našega naroda. Bi vas presenetilo, če bi vedeli, da je eno od njih zgradilo podjetje za pisalne stroje, ki ni imelo izkušenj pri gradnji strelnega orožja? Tukaj je zgodba.

Leta 1873 so se E. Remington & amp Sons lotili novega podviga, septembra 1873 pa so izdelali prve pisalne stroje znamke Remington. Medtem ko so potrebovali 13 let, da so to ugotovili, je E. Remington spoznal, da so izdelovalci strelnega orožja in ne podjetje za pisalne stroje, in leta 1886 je Remington prodal podjetje s pisalnim strojem. To podjetje je pozneje postalo Remington Rand, nato Sperry Rand.

Vendar so bili to za Remington težki časi in Marcellus Hartley in partnerji so marca 1888 E. E. Remington & amp Sons kupili. E. Remington & amp Sons je bila reorganizirana in novo podjetje se je imenovalo Remington Arms Company. V poznejših letih bo podjetje, da bi bolje izkoristilo potencial tovarne Remington, proizvajalo šivalne stroje in blagajne. (Predvidevam, da se preprosto niso mogli izogniti pripomočkom.) Leta 1912 sta bili združenje Union Metal Metal Cartridge Company iz Bridgeporta in Remington Arms Company združeni v eno podjetje in postali Remington-UMC, in to ravno v času prve svetovne vojne.

Ob vstopu Združenih držav v vojno so načrtovalci vojnega ministrstva leta 1917 ocenili, da bo skupaj potrebnih 765.000 pištol. Ocena je bila pozneje popravljena navzgor, najprej na 1,3 milijona, nato pa na 2,7 milijona. Colt nikakor ni mogel zgraditi toliko pušk. Naročila so bila oddana pri Remington-UMC, Winchester, Burroughs Adding Machine Co., Lanston Monotype Machine Co., National Cash Register Co., A.J. Savage Munitions Co., Savage Arms Co. in dve kanadski podjetji, Caron Brothers Mfg. Co in North American Arms Co., Ltd. Severnoameriški je sicer naredil nekaj pištol, vendar jih je bilo verjetno manj kot 100. Nekateri organi se sporijo, če jih je Severna Amerika sploh dokončala.

Pištola Remington-UMC M1911

Remington-UMC 1911 pištolski žig

Pogodba Remington-UMC določa "ciljno" stopnjo proizvodnje 3000 pištol na dan, ki jo je treba doseči čim prej. Družba je takoj naletela na težave, ker niso bili na voljo potrebni načrti proizvodnje in specifikacije. Ker so bili potrebni zamenljivi deli, se je proizvodnja začela šele, ko je Colt predložil risbe. Sčasoma je Remington-UMC pridobil celoten nabor proizvodnih risb in specifikacij, podjetje pa se je začelo pripravljati za izdelavo M1911.

Colt tukaj ni bil namerno uporen. Resnica je znana, Colt verjetno ni imel celotnega nabora načrtov, ki bi drugemu podjetju omogočili hitro orodje in izdelavo pištol. Coltov način izdelave je bil v tistih časih močno odvisen od pridobljene veščine in znanja obrtnika, ki je delal v njihovi trgovini, in zelo verjetno je, da veliko "skrivnosti" nikoli ni bilo predanih papirju.

Prve pištole Remington-UMC so bile vladi dostavljene avgusta 1918, vendar podjetju nikoli ni uspelo doseči želene stopnje proizvodnje. Proizvodna pogodba podjetja M1911 je bila preklicana decembra 1918, kmalu po podpisu premirja, čeprav je proizvodnja dejansko prenehala šele v začetku leta 1919. Do konca vojne je Remington-UMC dobavil le 13.152 pištol. Skupna proizvodnja je bila le 21.677 pištol, ko so bile dobavljene v začetku leta 1919.

Remington-UMC M1911 so bili zaporedno oštevilčeni od 1 do 21,677. Pištole so bile odtisnjene z začetnicami inšpektorjev ("B" ali "E"). Na levi strani diapozitivov so bili označeni datumi patenta Colt, logotip »Remington/ UMC« razporejen v krog in »Proizvajalec/ Remington Arms UMC Co. Inc./ Bridgeport, Conn., ZDA«. Na levi strani sprejemnikov so bile enake oznake "Lastništvo Združenih držav Amerike", ki jih najdemo na orožju Colt in Springfield Armory M1911.

Pištole za zgodnjo proizvodnjo morajo imeti žig “E ” na levi strani ščitnika sprožilca, na dnu ohišja glavne vzmeti in na hrbtni strani drsnika. "E.E.C." je znak Edwarda E. Chapmana, ki je leta 1918 in 1919 pregledal leta 1911 v Remingtonu.

Pištole Remington-UMC so bile dokončane v isti rjavo modri barvi, kot je bila najdena na pištolah Colt in Springfield Armory in so bile opremljene z isto vrsto karirastih zalog orehov. Čeprav podjetje nikoli ni doseglo proizvodnih ciljev, ki si jih je zamislila vlada, so pištole Remington-UMC vseeno pomagale pri oborožitvi Doughboysa ameriških ekspedicijskih sil. Tako kot pri pištolah Colt in Springfield Armory je bila velika večina kasneje obnovljena in prenovljena po prvi svetovni vojni, danes pa jih je le nekaj v prvotnem "tovarniškem" stanju. Preživeli primerki vseh prvotnih pištol prve svetovne vojne in prejšnjih letnikov M1911 so zelo redki.

Remington Rand M1911A1

Remington Rand pištola M1911A1

Ko je izbruhnila druga svetovna vojna, je bil Remington-Rand že 55 let podjetje za pisalne stroje in izdelali so pravi spodoben pisalni stroj (jaz sem ga imel), vendar so bili daleč od poslovanja s strelnim orožjem. Kljub temu je stric Sam potreboval vojni material in poljubno število proizvajalcev je bilo pritisnjenih na storitveno gradnjo stvari, ki jih za vojna še nikoli niso zgradili. Toda zakaj stric ni dobil podjetja Remington Arms za izdelavo pištol? Odgovor je res precej preprost. Vojno ministrstvo je potrebovalo podjetje Remington Arms, da je naredilo tisto, kar mu je bilo najboljše, in sicer za proizvodnjo streliva. Drugi bi lahko izstrelili pištole.

Remington Rand je 16. marca 1942 prejel prvo naročilo za skupno 125.000 pištol 1911A1. Družba v času, ko je prejela pogodbo, ni imela izkušenj pri gradnji pištol. Remington Rand je ustanovil novo enoto za prevzem pištol. Ustanovljeni oddelek je bil imenovan Remington Rand “C ” Division. Po pridobitvi pogodbe so prosti obrat, ki je bil nekoč uporabljen za gradnjo pisalnih strojev, preoblikovali v proizvodnjo pištol M1911A1. Stara tovarna se je nahajala na ulici Dickerson v Syracuse, N.Y.

Prvih 255 proizvodnih pištol so inšpektorji sprejeli novembra 1942. Na začetku je bila nekatera proizvodna oprema še vedno nedostopna, zaradi česar je Remington Rand kupil dele iz drugih virov za dokončanje prvih pištol. Kupili so sode od ločilnikov High Standard, Colt in Springfield Armory od varnostnih pasov US & ampS, od Colta in drsnih postankov od Colt in Springfield Armory (2.865 preostalih iz prve svetovne vojne).

Do marca 1945 so šteli, da je bila izdelava pištole z najnižjo ceno v vojnih prizadevanjih in kakovosti enaka. Pomembno je omeniti, da je marca 1943 James Rand, Jr., ustavil proizvodnjo zaradi neuspešnih preizkusov zamenljivosti. Pištole niso izpolnjevale vladnih zahtev glede zamenljivosti delov in so imele zelo visoko stopnjo zavrnitve. Po spremembi vodstva se je proizvodnja maja 1943 začela z reševanjem težav z zamenljivostjo in stopnjo zavrnitve. Do konca vojne je Remington Rand izdelal več kot 875.000 pištol, skoraj dvakrat več kot Colt in Ithaca skupaj.

Najbolj neverjeten del zgodbe je v tem, koliko pištol Remington Rand je še vedno v uporabi danes, več kot 55 let po tem, ko jih je izdelalo podjetje za pisalne stroje v Sirakuzah, ki o gradnji pištol ni vedelo nič. Njihovi lastniki prisegajo nanje in če niso bili zlorabljeni, so še vedno trdne in zanesljive pištole. Želim si, da bi jih imel ducat.


Remingtonovi revolverji - zgodovina

Remingtonov model 1875 št. 3 Izboljšan vojaški revolver

Model E. Remington & Sons 1875 št. 3 je revolver tradicionalnega zahodnega sloga s šestimi streli (SA), s spletom pod cevjo, ki prikliče udarni revolver Remington Army iz leta 1858. Remington iz leta 1858 je imel trden zgornji trak, do ključavnice pa je bilo mogoče dostopati od spodaj, tako da preprosto odstranite ščitnik za sprožilec. En sam vijak drži sprožilec na mestu, zato je postopek najpreprostejši od vseh revolverjev, kar sem jih kdaj videl.

Nobenega dvoma ni, da je bil remington Remington 1858 pred svojim časom. Mnogi strelci iz obdobja državljanske vojne so imeli raje Remington 1858 pred vojaškim revolverjem Colt 1860 (vsak je imel prednosti in slabosti), Remington pa je te napredne funkcije ohranil, ko je izdelal model 1875, ki je bil v bistvu posodobljena različica fine kartuše s sredinskim ognjem. Model 1858.

The Remington Model 1875 "Improved Army or Frontier Revolver" was produced from 1874-1888, with the model first appearing in the 1875 Remington catalog. Interestingly, in the 1875 catalog it was referred to it as the 1874 Model, but this was quickly changed to Model 1875 in the 1876 and subsequent catalogs. 1885 and later Remington catalogs described the Model 1875 as the "New Model Army," rather than the "Improved Army."

Somewhere around 30,000 Model 1875s were probably made. The exact production number is unknown and I have seen guesses ranging from 25,000 to 40,000. Part of the confusion is caused because Remington changed the serial number sequence after about 12,000 revolvers had been produced, starting over with number one.

Unlike a Colt Single Action Army (SAA) revolver or a modern Ruger SA revolver, the Remington 1875 had a one-piece main frame and grip strap. This made for an exceptionally strong assembly.

Frames were blued or nickel plated and the hammer and loading gate were case-hardened. Remington Model 1875 revolvers were never manufactured with color case-hardened frames, although most modern 1875 replicas have this feature.

There was a lanyard ring attached to the bottom of the grip frame. Remington promoted this feature as useful when mounted on horseback.

Most 1875's had 7-1/2 inch round barrels, while a very few late production guns were supplied with 5-3/4 inch barrels. Calibers were .44 Remington, .44-40 and .45 Colt. .45 Colt revolvers had slightly longer cylinders to prevent inserting a .45 Colt cylinder in a .44 caliber frame.

Model 1875 revolvers were supplied with fluted cylinders and most came with smooth, two-piece walnut grips, although checkered grips, ivory grips and pearl grips were available, as was engraving by special order. Examples of beautifully engraved presentation revolvers still exist today and are prized by Remington collectors. (Note photo at top of page.)

Like the Colt SAA (or "Peacemaker"), the 1875's hammer is powered by a long flat-spring inside the grip frame. This is called the mainspring or hammer spring. The Remington 1875 action clicks four times as you cock the hammer, like a Colt SAA. Although they are conceptually similar, the Remington action is different in detail from a Colt.

Early examples had rectangular firing pins integral with the hammer. After about serial number 12,000, replaceable cone shaped firing pins were pinned into the hammer in the manner of a Colt SAA. The shape of the new firing pin evolved as production continued, as did the shape of the hammer. The early model hammer did not have a quarter-cock safety notch.

There were two types of triggers and trigger guards used on Model 1875 revolvers. Other detail changes were also made, as is typical with arms produced for over a decade.

The shape of the front sight changed from a pinched post to a blade. Typical sights consist of a rounded, tapered blade front sight and a small notch cut into the top strap of the frame. These sights are "fine" and harder to acquire than the Patridge type sights found on almost all modern service pistols. The only adjustment possible is to carefully file down the front sight if the gun shoots low.

I agree with the praise for the handling of Remington pattern revolvers from aficionados. As good as a Colt Peacemaker feels in the hand, the Remington has always felt slightly better to me. The shape of the Remington grip, viewed from the bottom, is a bit shorter oval (front to back) than the Colt grip. The Remington revolver is also heavier than a Colt and has a more weight forward balance, probably due to its heavy ejector rod housing and the steel web under the barrel.

Cocking the 1875's hammer is like any traditional SA revolver. As it is thumbed back from its resting position against the frame, the first hammer notch is the quarter-cock "safety" position. This is a deep notch and it holds the hammer about 3/16 inch from the frame, far enough for the firing pin to be well clear of a cartridge in the chamber.

In traditional SA revolvers, such as the Model 1875, this safety notch is not completely safe, as a heavy blow to the hammer hard enough to break either the tip of the sear engaging the notch or the notch itself could allow the firing pin to contact the primer of a cartridge and fire the gun. This is not likely, but it is possible.

Continue to thumb the hammer back and the next notch is half-cock. The half-cock hammer position frees the bolt that locks the cylinder at the bottom and allows the cylinder to turn freely in a clockwise direction. This is the loading and unloading hammer position. The half-cock notch in the hammer is not as secure as the quarter-cock safety notch and should never be used as a safety position.

The final hammer position is full cock, with the hammer held all the way back. With the hammer fully cocked, the tip of the sear engages the full-cock notch. This is a shallow notch only as wide as the sear tip and cut at a right angle to the tip of the sear (itself an extension of the top of the trigger). The tip of the sear and the full cock hammer notch are polished to slide smoothly against each other and only a small trigger movement is required to free the hammer and fire the revolver.

Loading and unloading the 1875 is traditional single action fare. Thumb the hammer back to the half-cock position, which allows the cylinder to rotate freely in a clockwise direction. Swing open the loading gate at the right side of the frame. To load cartridges, rotate the cylinder until a chamber is aligned with the loading port in the recoil shield and insert a cartridge. Repeat the process until the gun is loaded.

The 1875 should be carried with an empty chamber under the hammer. Since the cylinder chambers are not recessed to enclose the cartridge rims, you can verify this by looking through the gap between the back of the cylinder and the frame, where the cartridge rims are visible no rim should show in the chamber aligned with the hammer.

Thumb the hammer back to its half-cock notch to free the cylinder to rotate. Open the loading gate. Rotate the cylinder to align a case head with the loading port in the recoil shield. Point the muzzle skyward. If the chambers are clean, unfired rounds will simply drop into your hand as you rotate the cylinder. It will probably not be necessary to use the ejector rod.

To eject fired cases, slide the spring loaded ejector rod (located beneath the barrel at about the 5-o'clock position) rearward until it pushes the fired case from the cylinder. Release the ejector rod and manually rotate the cylinder to the next chamber. Repeat until all chambers are empty.

REMOVING/INSTALLING THE CYLINDER

I have never had the privilege of owning an original Remington 1875 revolver. However, I have had a reasonable amount of experience with, and in some cases reviewed, Uberti, Cimarron and Navy Arms replicas. The following is based on my experience with these revolvers.

To remove the cylinder for cleaning, first make sure all the chambers are empty. Thumb the hammer back to the half-cock position and open the loading gate. Hold the pistol in your hands with the right side down. Depress the spring-loaded cylinder base pin screw (in the frame in front of the cylinder) and pull the cylinder pin toward the muzzle until it completely clears the cylinder. The cylinder will them simply fall out of the frame into your hand.

Replacing the cylinder: Unlike a Colt or Ruger SA revolver, at least in my experience, when a Remington pattern revolver is at half-cock the hand (the part that rotates the cylinder) does not fully retract into its slot in the recoil shield. At least this is the case with modern replicas. This makes it very difficult to get the cylinder correctly aligned with the cylinder pin.

Here is how to reinstall the cylinder. With the cylinder out of the frame, bring the hammer back to the full cock position. This raises the hand and the bolt. (The bolt locks the cylinder in place). Note the operation of these parts. Lower the hammer to the frame.

Now, holding the revolver in your left hand, thumb the hammer slowly back with your left thumb until the bolt is retracted and the hand is as far into the frame as it goes. Hold the hammer in this intermediate position, between quarter-cock and half-cock, and with your right hand drop the cylinder into the frame jiggle it a bit as necessary to slide the cylinder pin through the cylinder until it locks into place. Bring the hammer back to the full-cock notch and then lower it, close the loading gate and you are finished.

REPRODUCTIONS AND HOLSTERS

Today, the vast majority of surviving Remington 1875s are in the hands of collectors. However, new 1875 reproductions are available from Uberti, Cimarron, Taylor's & Co. and perhaps others.

The Cimarron 1875 Outlaw is made by Uberti and I suspect the Taylor's & Co. version is also. Navy Arms used to market a Uberti made 1875 replica, but no longer does. However, Navy Arms guns are fairly common on the used market.

These modern replicas are made to be used and the Uberti made 1875s I have used, regardless of the importer, have been good shooters. If you purchase one of these, or are lucky enough to own an original Remington in shooting condition, you will probably need a holster in which to carry it.

Fortunately, the 1875 will fit in most holsters intended for SA revolvers with the same length barrel, including the Colt SAA and clones, 1858 Remington percussion revolver, Ruger Vaquero, etc. A widely available nylon belt holster that works well is Uncle Mike's Sidekick Size 9. Reasonably priced leather holsters are offered by Hunter and Oklahoma Leather, among others.

The Remington 1875 Improved Army revolver was perhaps the finest of the frontier six shooters of the late 19th Century. Unfortunately for Remington, their Model 1875 Improved Army came two years after the introduction of the Colt Single Action Army revolver.

Colt having gotten on the ground first, the SAA quickly became so well established that the Remington 1875 was never able to catch-up. The Colt had already been adopted by the US Army by the time the Remington became available, thus depriving Remington of the majority of US government sales. 639 Model 1875s were purchased by the US Interior Department/Commissioner of Indian Affairs for issue to Indian tribal police.

Egypt ordered 10,000 Remington revolvers, but defaulted on the contract, so the guns were never paid for and most, perhaps all, were never shipped. Some Model 1875s were purchased by the Mexican government. The size of the Mexican order is unknown, but is thought to be about 500. Other Remington 1875s were sold to Mexican state police agencies. The great majority of the Model 1875s produced were sold, not to governments, but to private citizens in the US.

Remington was having financial difficulties during the 13 year production life of the Model 1875, mostly brought on by the Egyptian default on a huge contract for Remington Rolling Block army rifles, which were shipped, but never paid for. This was a financial blow from which E. Remington & Sons never really recovered.

Model 1875 production ended in 1888, the year the Company finally went bankrupt and ownership passed from the Remington family. Controlling interest was acquired by Hartley & Graham, one of the largest firearms dealers in the US, in June, 1888 and the Company restyled as Remington Arms Company.

Model 1875 revolvers in stock after the takeover by Hartley & Graham were reworked by shortening the barrel to 5-3/4 inches and removal of the web under the barrel. These became the Model 1888 and were followed by the nearly identical Model 1890. Neither the Model 1888 or the Model 1890 ever achieved anything like the popularity of the Model 1875. However, that is another story.


Guns of the Week: Remington-Smoot

Beginning in the 1850s, E. Remington & Sons sold an array of pocket pistols and revolvers. At the conclusion of the Civil War and during westward expansion, revolver competition was at an all time high. There was a drive for innovation in order to survive as a company.

Remington was one of several manufacturers that focused on the production of pocket pistols and derringers, which ultimately satisfied the concealment needs of late nineteenth-century western society.

Beginning in the 1870s, Remington marketed a new line of small revolvers. They often have been erroneously named Remington New Line Revolvers, even though Remington catalogs marketed them as the Remington-Smoot New Model Revolvers or the Smoot’s Patent New Models.

Pictured is a Remington-Smoot New Model No. 1 Revolver. About 3,000 of this Model were made between 1875 and 1877. It is a five-shot revolver chambered for .30 rimfire short metallic cartridges. The Smoot was a competitor to Colt’s revolvers. This firearm is a part of a Remington Cartridge Gun Loan of 40 pocket pistols.

Unloading the Myth – What’s So Special About Smoot? Part 2 of 3

William Sydney Smoot was an inventor in America who received more than a dozen firearms patents. Smoot was born in 1845 in Norfolk, Virginia. During the Civil War, he was a lieutenant in the First Maryland Infantry as part of the Union. He spent the end of the war as an ordnance officer at Springfield Armory. He resigned from the military in 1870 and began work at Remington the following year.

On October 21, 1873, Smoot was issued Patent Number 143,855, which was awarded for an “Improvement in Revolving Fire-Arms.” Smoot’s patent was unique for two reasons: 1. the frame, barrel, and ejector housing were one piece 2. the revolving recoil shield allowed for the ejector and center pin to work together.

Pictured is a Remington-Smoot New Model No. 2 Revolver. Unlike the No. 1, the No. 2 had a stepped-down ejector rod. Between 1877 and 1885, about 3,000 No. 2s were made. While most were chambered for .32 rimfire short, some, like this one, were made for .30.

Unloading the Myth – A Side Dish to Every Lunch Part 3 of 3

This Remington-Smoot New Model No. 3 Revolver was made between 1878 and 1888 in .38 rimfire short. A little larger than its predecessors, about 25,000 of this model were made.

Several companies have been attributed to having “Lunchbox Specials.” This particular Smoot has no serial number and is believed to have been carried out of the factory in a lunch box for concealment.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

What better way to get to the core, you know, the real brass tacks of a firearm than to break it down into the good ole phrase: “The good, the bad, and the ugly.”

That is exactly how we are going to break up this article. This way you can get a look at what makes the Remington Model 700 really shine as well as where it could do just a little bit better, in my opinion, to hopefully give you a better idea of what to look forward to if you are considering adding a Remington 700 to your gun safe anytime soon.

The Good

The Remington 700 is an iconic bolt-action, center-fire rifle that has been a staple of the hunting arena for the past 50 years and still going strong to this day. And it’s really no wonder why or how it has been able to etch out a sport in the history books… and hold it.

For starters, Remington crafts all their firearms with the highest quality materials available, and the Remington Model 700 is not the outlier in that either. You will find triple-layered steel barrels in a variety of sizes, sealed solid wood shoulder stocks, and high-impact polymer frames on the lightweight versions.

Straight out of the box this rifle has the most on-point accuracy that I’ve seen in the same price range from large competitors. That’s all thanks to its internal design which features 3 rings of steel that are locked into the bedding platform that gives you more reliable accuracy than a lot of other rifles on the market currently.

The barrel on every Remington Model 700 is hand-forged from steel and are made to very specific guidelines in an effort to make sure that they are precise and durable enough to hold a steady aim for many years to come.

Since its inception, the Remington 700 has worked hard and built quite the loyal following for itself. So much so that there is a truly massive aftermarket dedicated to just this one rifle. With all the accessories and upgrades developed for this rifle over the years, you will never have to worry about outgrowing your Remington 700 as you can upgrade it and switch it up a bit as your needs change over time. I know people who have owned their Model 700 for 30+ years and even some who have had one passed down to them from their grandparents or fathers.

Since it has such a massive following and is easy to work on, you will never have trouble finding someone who can work on your gun for you. This also means that there is an endless supply of information out there about how to work on the Remington Model 700, enough so that you can do basic work on it yourself with just a day or so of research.

Another major selling point for this rifle is the fact that the Remington Model 700 is trusted and actively used in the line of duty for the military of 6 countries. When you can gain the trust and loyalty of soldiers who must trust this rifle to save their life should the need arise, you know you are doing something right.

Overall, the Remington Model 700 is a very well-built, reliable rifle that comes with a legacy that really speaks for itself.

The Bad

First let’s take a look at one major thing that happened not too long ago, something that has really tarnished the Remington brand as a whole in a lot of people’s eyes…

The Remington Model 700 went through a massive recall back in February 2017. Now, I don’t think I have to tell anyone who may be reading this blog that Remington is a HUGE firearms manufacturer, and an extremely popular one at that.

Beyond that, the Model 700 is by far the most popular rifle out there to this day. So, you can only imagine how many rifles were involved in this recall. The number is somewhere around 8 million.

The reason for the recall was due to some excess bonding agent used in the assembly process being left on the XMP trigger that the Remington 700 features. This excess bonding agent was thought to be responsible for allowing the firearm, under certain circumstances, to unintentionally discharge.

The rifles included in this recall would be any that were manufactured from May 1, 2006, to April 9, 2014.

However, Remington eventually did the most responsible thing they could do in this situation, they admitted they had found a common problem, and then issued the safety recall. If you happen to have a Model 700 made between those dates you can send your rifle into Remington and they will inspect it, clean it, test it, and return it to you for free.

The second thing that I have personally found out about my own Remington Model 700 that I really don’t care much for has to do with a feed rail issue. Sometimes I can be out hunting large game and need to get ammo fed quickly to pull off that one shot. If I am too quick, or loading under stress, the cartridge seems to love getting stuck under the feed rail of the receiver and the magazine.

It’s because of this issue that in the past year or so I have been carrying a couple different push feed hunting rifles around with me whenever I go out on a day trip.

The Ugly

You know how I said that there is a massive aftermarket for the Remington 700? Be glad it’s there because the Remington Model 700 is a basic rifle when it comes to aesthetics.

Let me be clear before I talk myself into a hole here, I really like this rifle. It is well-built, has passed the test of time many times over, and my Remington 700 has never let me down in the 16 years I’ve owned it. But, I have never cared much for the look of most of the versions of this rifle.

There are indeed some versions of the model that are absolutely gorgeous. However, fresh out of the box, the basic models like the Model 700 CDL SF or the Model 700 American Wilderness Rifle just aren’t that super-impressive. They are your standard plain-jane style rifle with maybe a few eye-catching designs here and there.

There are a few models like the ADL – 200 th Anniversary Edition that are designed with a little more attention to detail on the woodwork and the like. It’s those simple little things that can make a rifle truly stand out from the rest in terms of eye-catching design.

When it comes time to buy your Remington 700, don’t let the aesthetics get in the way of making a good purchase. Visual appeal is a nice thing to have and gives you something else about your rifle to be proud about, but your rifles true merit does not lie in its eye-candy factor, it’s all about how well it performs for you.

And to be quite honest, with all that open real estate on your gun, you have a lot of wiggle room to customize it the way you want. Just throw a decent rifle scope on that plain barrel and you will begin to see what I mean.

Overall, Remington has a nice selection of variations for the Model 700 but most of them are very plain and basic, so you may want to consider adding some aftermarket parts over time unless you enjoy a minimal, sleek look.

Any time you make 11,000,000 plus of anything, there are bound to be some hits and misses. The following is a highly subjective list of 870s to seek out and to avoid. I have owned more than a few, shot a bunch more, and have my opinions.

Remington 870s to Avoid

Early 20 Gauges

Early 20-gauge 870s were made by putting 20 gauge barrels on 12-gauge receivers. Look for guns with “LW” stamped on the frame if you want a scaled-down, lighter 20.

All 16-Gauges

All 16-gauge 870s are made on 12-gauge frames. Granted, that frame was originally borrowed from the 16-gauge 11-48, but still, all you get is a gun that weighs the same as a 12 but only shoots 16-gauge shells. If you want a real, scaled-down 16-gauge pump, find an Ithaca 37.

Expresses of a Certain Vintage

Sometime in the early 00s, 870 Express quality control slipped. The most common problem you see in those guns is fired shells sticking in poorly finished chambers, most often with inexpensive target loads. Many 870 Express owners have their gun’s chambers polished, or do it themselves with fine steel wool and an electric drill, and the malfunctions usually go away. Replacing the metal injection molded (MIM) extractor can help, too.

Remington has ramped up QC efforts in the past few years, and the new Expresses are much better than those of ten or so years ago.

Remington 870s to Look For

Special Field

In the 1980s Remington introduced a straight-gripped, 21-inch (some were 23-inch) barreled upland gun in 12 and 20 gauge called the Special Field. It made a great carrying gun for bird hunters who put a lot of miles on their boots. Some of the later ones had removable choke tubes, and I’d love to have one for turkey hunting.

Competition Trap

One of the odder 870 variants was a single shot trap gun that incorporated a gas system. Gases bled from a port in the barrel pushed against a weight in the magazine tube, lengthening the recoil pulse and turning it from a sharp kick to a shove. I got to shoot one once, and the sensation was odd, because 870 trap guns usually let you know they’re there. Not this gun. It shot as softly as an 1100.

SuperSlug

Currently in production, the SuperSlug has a heavy, rifled barrel pinned to its receiver for added rigidity, and it shoots slugs into groups as tiny as slug groups can be. The ShurShot stock, a kind of modified pistol grip, is comfortable to hold and has a comb the correct height for scope use.

90s Era Wingmaster

For my money, the sweet spot in 870 production—if you want a modern, versatile gun—was the early 90s. When Remington first added RemChoke tubes in 1986, they beefed up the barrels, adding a bunch of weight to the guns. In 1992 they offered a slimmed-down Light Contour barrel that made the guns lively again. These early 90s guns are still made the way they used to make them, but you get choke tubes and the lighter barrel.

Almost Any Old Wingmaster 1963-1985

In 1963 Remington changed the finish on the Wingmaster, from a semi-satin with cut checkering to a glossy finish originally developed by parent company DuPont for bowling pins. They switched checkering to a pressed fleur-de-lis pattern. I thought they looked cheesy back then. And they do, but in a retro way that has aged extremely well. And, those old fixed-choke Wingmasters are beautifully made. The barrels are light and lively. The actions started out slick and have only gotten slicker over all those years of use. These guns come in both 2¾ and Magnum versions (the barrels don’t interchange between standard and magnum receivers). The magnums are getting a little harder to come by. If you see one, grab it. If it has a fixed Full choke, have a gunsmith open it up to about Modified and shoot anything you want through it.
