Incorporated in 1920, Remington has actually been producing firearms since 1865. However, Remington Arms didn't begin coding serial numbers until 1921. The serial number on your Remington firearm begins with a series of letters detailing the month and year of manufacturer. Between August 9, 1999 and October 1, 2001, Remington removed the date coding from the serial numbers on the barrels but continued to code the serial number on the box.
