    I recently acquired another Remington 721. The 721/722 Remington’s are my absolute favorite rifles. They were everyday working rifles, nothing fancy but strong and economical. They were the predecessor of the 700 and I like them better than the 700 series. When I received this one it had about...

    About 14 years ago I bought a Remington 11, the barrel is marked 16ga I had planned to try it one day but never got around to buying 16ga ammo until last week, on the first shot the barrel wedged in the reciever HARD, I thought it just needed cleaning so today I took it down and cleaned it...

    Let’s give this a try.... I grew up in Wiggins but live in Texas now due to work. I’m looking for a gun someone on here might have or have one similar. It’s a Remington 760 carbine in 270 caliber. My dad had it when I was growing up and it was his favorite gun ever. He had to sell it around the...

    I’ve got this slide sitting in my parts box that my granddad had on his GI 1911. I found the original Ithaca slide in his parts stash. This was obviously one he bought somewhere along the line and had cut for bomar’s rather than ruining the original slide (thank goodness!). Simple question. Does...

    Any idea what the torque should be on the stock screws? I've seen anything from 40-65 inch pounds. It's a 223. J.B.

    Many years ago a friend of mine had a Remington XP 100 bolt action single shot pistol, I don't remember what caliber. We had a blast shooting that pistol. I haven't thought about it in a long time until the other day. I called him and we chatted for a while, he said that he had sold that pistol...

    I got one with a blowout or rupture about 8 inches from the muzzle. I told him that he was lucky with no injuries. I can cut the barrel back before where the damage is and install the front bead. But I told him that I would look for another barrel., Thanks, Mike

    All - I'm new to the forum but have been a long-time follower. I have the opportunity to purchase a Remington 700 Long Range, chambered in .25-06. I would be using the gun primarily for deer, hogs, and 500-yard-ish target shooting. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    I need help dating a Remington 1100 410 shotgun. It has 25" full choke barrel. Serial # is R004069h and barrel code is CL. I understand it to be 1991 but I thought choke tubes were in all shotguns by 1987. Any help appreciated.

    I was given this gun by a good friend a few weeks ago. He thought it was not working. The slide handle would not come back. I started looking it over and the trouble was, the pump handle has to be pushed forward to unlock the breech once the shotgun is fired. There was nothing wrong with the...

    I received this Remington 30s today. It was a '06 but has been re-bored to 35 Whelen. This was made in 1934. These were built on surplus Enfield action after the war. I am looking for another Lyman 48R receiver sight but they be a tall order. I love these old rifles.(any old rifle 8>)
