My Remington 3200 Special Trap, built in 1973, was sent to Laib's for a complete going over and everything that needed to be replaced was and it received Laib's unique bushing system to repair damage to the firing pin holes. Laib's customer service was outstanding as was the quality of the work done. I still use my 3200 as my primary doubles gun.

Do Remington 3200 field shotguns have a tendency to shoot low, right-on, or high ?

Mine seems to shoot low compared to my other guns.

Is there a factory monte carlo trap stock available for it that would lift its POI ?

I've got 3 3200's - the #3 set of the 1 of 1,000 skeet and trap guns, and a 2 barrel set (28" SK/SK and F/M) The gun ws the prototype for the 4 barrel skeet sets which followed. I am not aware of any other 2 barrel factory-produced guns. I shoot the gun better than any gun I own. I shot it in Springer Field trials for years.

Initially, they were knocked for being too heavy or "clubby" but now as competition guns have gotten heavy, it seems to me they are enjoying a resurgence.

I'm a little confused by Dbl Auto's comment, "Guns that were made after 1976 or so (serial #'s above 30,000) only had one pin at the rear of the receiver." I have s/n 6xxx with only one pin in the rear of the receiver and two with s/n's in the 40,xxx range with two pins.

41whitetail, since doing this post long ago, I have seen low serial numbered guns with one pin receivers. The only way I can explain this, and it is just my guess, is that Remington had to replace the receivers on these guns due to damage. I have never seen a higher than mid 30,000 serial number 3200 with two pins.

Another Remington 3200 quirk is its tendancy to crack stocks. I have had all of mine full bedded by gunsmiths even then I will see a fracture. I've taken to try to tighten the stock to receiver bolt after each shoot.
Any advice would be apperciated.

Gosh, guys...... I don't want to start a fight, but if you read all the posts on all the forums on all the 3200's, well..... frankly, they are NOT great guns. They had significant problems. But, they were eventually made into decent guns by the updates and modifications. Since then, they have developed a strong following and a loyal group of enthusiasts. I think that is great; I love loyalty and support for "made in America".

I shoot with a guy at my club every Saturday. He shoots a 3200 with all the updates and has sent it back to the guy who is the 3200 Guru. It still malfunctions at least once each round of skeet. Weak primer strike I suppose.

I like the guns (I find them attractive) and I admire the loyalty of those who shoot and worship them. But, when I read all the threads about less than satisfactory 3200 performance (and there are many for the amount of 3200's produced), I cannot justify in my mind how it can be rationalized that "they are great guns". I mean, gee whiz, when you have to reinfoce the receiver and the forend iron bends!!! And folks are very wary about an ad for one for sale: lots of questions about updates, etc.

To me, Remington should have never given away the rights to the design of the Model 32 to Europa Corporation (Krieghoff Model 32) in the late 1950's. The K-80 Krieghoff is just the latest version of the great Remington 32. Now, that was a gun!

Remington brought out the 3200 to compete with the Japanese-made Citori. To be able to do this with a "made in America" gun necessitated that the gun have a minimum amount of hand labor involved. My guess is that in order to do that with production tooling meant that the gun was heavier than could have been accomplished a hand-fitted gun. You certainly couldn't produce the M32/K80 at Citori prices. (BTW, I like both my 3200's and my K80

I have a 3200 with s/n 64xx. Two pins on receiver rear. No dot on serial number, no wreath around dog, but has hex screws. Now I am really confused. Also, how do you tell which model you have? Gun has vent rib, nice wood, pachmeyer pad, thick almost beavertail forend. Seems to be open chokes. Any help greatly appreciated. 27 1/2 inch barrels.

I believe it is an early skeet model. Barrels marked skeet & skeet. Barrel length still odd, and the no dot, but hex screws modification. Still appreciate any info.

Well, I'm late to the party! Just came across this thread. My 3200 Competition is numbered 402xx. It has the dot and two nuts on the bottom of the receiver face. Several years ago I sent it to the factory for them to fit new extra 12- and 20-ga. barrel sets. Can't remember, but they may have done the upgrade then. This was more than 14 or so years ago when Remington had a sale on new 3200 barrels. If I remember correctly, they were just a few hundred dollars apiece. Anyway--serial number above 40,000 and upgrade made at the factory.

Thanks for information: I've been looking for a 3200 for over six months, lots on the market, most over priced and by the time and costs of upgrades, thin chokes, adjustable comb, high end recoil pad plus shipping and handling fees, you got $2,200.00 invested in a 50 year old gun.

If the gun hasn't been recalled/retrofitted then IMHO: parts guns only,, $300.00. Perhaps some un-knowledgable fellow will come along and make the purchase. :wink: :wink: :wink:

I think there a nice gun, BUT: tack on several thousand to make them a real shooter.

I'm thinking about a 3200. There's a guy by me in FL selling a "never fired" 1 of 1000 Trap, no receiver modification. Looks brand new. He's asking $2200.

Im not a 3200 guru by any stretch but the price seems high to me.

Q's
Besides the good looking receiver is there any difference between the 1 of 1000 and the other models?
Also, I have a 13 1/4" LOP. Is trimming the stock an issue?

I wouldn't buy an "Unfired" gun of any description to use as a shooter. There are lots of 3200's that can be bought for a lot less money that have the mods already completed. If you are a collector of $2400 guns, go for it, otherwise, IMHO, pass
