Remington 700 dating serial number
We don't be be able to date it exactly but might be able to give you a small idea. I called remington 4 times today but I was on hold for about 15 mins each time. Edit: I found a website that says there is another way to find the age of a Remington (not necessarily a 700) without calling them and that is the barrel markings on the barrel. Does anyone know if this is the way Remington is putting serial numbers on, or is it a special serial number for sales to Walmart? bigger=cheaper al edited (see below) op meant numbers were larger in size. I have the Remington hard back book, but it doesn't have the current barrel dates in it. I have looked at the remington society page and can not figure out for sure what year my Remington 700 BDL was made. The Remington 700 comes in a large number of variants, with different stocks, barrel configurations, metal finishes and calibers.In addition, there are three lengths of action (not including the Model Seven's lightweight action, which is even shorter than the 'standard' short action). I noticed the local Walmart had 2 Remington 700 BDL's in .243 Win. I know Wal Mart's guns are same as others' because I'm a dealer.

The long action has a lock time of 3.0 milliseconds and the short action has a 15% faster lock time of 2.6 milliseconds.The bolt face is recessed, fully enclosing the base of the cartridge, The extractor is a C-clip sitting within the bolt face.The ejector is a plunger on the bolt face actuated by a coil spring.To these can be added various magazine configurations; a blind magazine which has no floorplate, a conventional magazine with detachable floorplate and a detachable box magazine.There are standard consumer versions as well as versions designed for military and police use.
The bolt is of 3-piece construction, brazed together (head, body and bolt handle).
