Hey all, I figured I might post this here in hope that one of you knowledgeable individual can help me out. I recently became the owner of a Remington 3200 Skeet Serial number OU. 8XXX. I have been trying to find out some information on it but no one that I have taken it to has been able to find out anything on it.

The gun is funny engraved except the barrel. The trigger guard is engraved, the barrel release is engraved and the part that is throwing everyone off is that it has 2 ducks on one side, 2 ducks and a dog on the other side that are made of some type of silver, white gold, or Platinum material. All 5 items are also not engraved into the gun but are raised about 1mm off of the gun.

Any ideas as far as the specific model, year, price, anything, etc?

Thanks,
Clint

I would say that you have some aftermarket product, but pics would help. You have a low serial number gun.

What makes you think it is an aftermarket product? It's stamped Remington 3200. Trying to figure out how to upload pictures. If you send me your email address, I can email them to you direct.

I am sorry, but someone did a very poor engraving job on that gun and the ducks appear to be some type of shorebird and the dog is right out of a comic book drawing. Someone needs to be honest with you and tell you this. In fact the engraving will no doubt greatly lower the value and you will probably have difficulty in finding a buyer. Look up what real engraving looks like and you will se the difference.

Been Looking for a 3200, not this one, Agree with sud, this gun needs to be sent back to where you bought it and your money returned. Something bad happened with this gun and this engraving in no way resembles wild ducks.

Thanks for the input. I looked at an engraved Browning on an enhanced image and didn't really notice much difference on the engraving. I finally heard from Remington, the gun is authentic but might have been a special order. They are doing some more digging and will let me know. Will post updated then.

Ok Guys - I have 2 remington 3200's.
Number 1 is a trap gun and has all the updates but the other one (low serial number 17***) has had no updates at all.
I am in England so is it safe to shoot it?
Interestingly it has had winchokes fitted
Regards

the "engraving" shows ducks on the right side and snipe on the left side with the dog.

Gosh, guys...... I don't want to start a fight
And you felt the need to drag your arse into this thread for what reason exactly?
To calmly discuss and reason rationally the good and bad aspects of a very interesting gun - the Remington 3200. But, of course that is beyond the capability of some folks......... especially those who are lacking in sobriety, or who are of an immature disposition. Maybe both. Most assuredly, I'm not referring to you, pitchpopper.

I agree, lowgun. It is good engraving. Not the best birds and dog I've ever seen; but, the rest is very, very good.

Bump Bump.

I am the happy new owner of a 3200 Trap. It is a 1976 with the factory updates. I can see a little wear on the breechface from shells, but the holes for the firing pins look good. I want to ask about replacing the ejector springs with softer 1911 springs. This will be my first O/U but I have fired a friend's Citori at my Club and when I would open it the shells flew over my shoulder. He told me I needed to open it partially at first, and that many owners remove the springs or replace with softer ones. On the 3200 specifically, I have heard/read that softer 1911 springs will make it easier to close and reduce the chances of forend damage. Is this true, or will I still need the forend mod by Mr. Laib?
