Post Remington Autoloading Shotgun
I have a Autoloading shotgun that I got off of a friend, it was his fathers ! He said
he bought it in 1910, the serial # is 574XX. I have been trying to find the year this
fine gun was made. Can anyone help me ?
He also gave me a really nice picture of his father holding the Shotgun in 1914 !
Thanks

The serial numbers for 1908 production run from 48,841 to 63,465. What a super treat to have a period picture of the original owner with the gun. Thank you for sharing.

I really dont know, I got this fine old shotgun and a Remington Gamemaster 760 30-06 from a
friend and he had pictures that went along with them. The 760 is a 1952 model !

I think the little Winchester pump is a Model 1890, not a 1906. The 1906 had a 20-inch barrel and the magazine tube came to within an inch or two of the muzzle, while the Model 1890 was "standard" with a 24-inch barrel.

Well Gentlemen, I gave this fine old shotgun a good cleaning and took it to a trap shoot the
other day ! I shot 21 out of 25 the first round,,,, it did a great job, and worked great, especially
after being 102 years old ! I still have to get a good recent picture of it to show ya's !
