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 Remington Society", 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

Year:______Code: [second and third (*) letters]
1930_______ Y
1931_______ Z
1932_______ A
1933_______ B
1934_______ C

2007_______ B
2008_______ C
2009_______ D

2010_______ E
2011_______ F
2012_______ G
2013_______H

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

(**) On 8/9/99, Remington stopped stamping the barrels with the date code. The date code was marked only on the end flap of the shipping box. Remington resumed stamping the date code on the barrel on 10/1/01. Only Remington can give an owner a DOM for a gun from this era, that carries no date code - via the gun's serial number.

Since letters have obviously been repeated, it's vital to know when your Remington model was introduced/discontinued.

All of the above is true,and as noted with shotguns the serial number is a real key in determining if the barrel even could be original. A lot of people don't realize just how prevalent barrel swapping is, but just as an example I have 5 Remington shotguns and 10 barrels, and I only have the one choke tubed barrel for the 28. I know which barrel was original with what, but depending on how they are assembled when I die, I wouldn't place a lot of bets on how some of them get sold
And, Remington's friendly "call them and they will tell you when it was made" service is highly unreliable in my opinion. I know of three flat out wrong answers they have given out, and they say one of my guns doesn't even exist - a 5 digit Model 1100. They wanted me to send it to them. I offered a picture, but they wanted to see the gun. No thanks. I didn't have the heart to tell them I once owned a 4 digit one.

BTT, since there's "When was my Remington made ?" questions STILL being posted, and apparently nobody's going through the threads and/or doing a search.

Thanks for bringing this back up.
I stuck this in my favorites a while back.
It gets used alot looking for barrels on the auction sites.
I agree that a sticky on this page and the Gun ID Archive would save many having to post the question.
A few here don't mind helping out, everyone has been patient and helpful.

Does anyone know the real list that is floating around.... i keep seeing 2 different list with different dates... mostly no V on one list for 2001 and making X - 2001

which would date some guns ahead... like mine is BH either a jan - 2012 in ones list,, or jan 2013- in another .. which makes it confusing cause i just boughtt his rifle new..

Please refer to the latest upgrade, above, for date code application during 1999-2001 (**).
