I have an 870 Wingmaster in excellent condition w/a 28", Modified choked barrel that has a 2-3/4" chamber.

They continued to mark the date code on the end flap of the shipping box.

They resumed stamping the date code on the barrel on 10/1/01. It says it does, but I find no codes stamped on my barrel that look like what's described here.

REMINGTON MANUFACTURING DATE CODE stamped on LH top rear of barrel, 2 or 3 digit, (month first, year after) (*) On 8/9/99, they stopped stamping the barrels with the date code.

They however continued to mark the date code on the end flap of the shipping box for shotgun barrels however.

Remington never (*) used serial numbers to identify the date of manufacture of it's firearms, they however stamped a date code (spelled out below) by the first letter meaning the month and the last letter the year of manufacture. On the RH side of the barrel will be a Magnaflux, Remington proof & a test mark If a gun is returned to the factory as a fire damaged, or blown up firearm, the factory will stamp it as a prefix to their date code with a #4 on the barrel and return it un-repaired.

The following letters correspond to the months of the year Month Codes: [first letter]B - L - A - C - K - P - O - W - D - E - R - X1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12Year:---------Code: [second and/or third letters]1930----------Y1931----------Z1932----------A1933----------B1934----------C1935----------D1936----------E1937----------F1938----------G1939----------H1940---------- J1941---------- K1942---------- L1943---------- MMZ1944---------- NN1945---------- PP1946---------- RR1947---------- SS1948---------- TT1949---------- UU1950---------- WW1951---------- XX1952---------- YY1953---------- ZZ1954---------- A1955---------- B1956---------- C1957---------- D1958---------- E1959---------- F1960---------- G1961---------- H1962---------- J1963---------- K1964---------- L1965---------- M1966---------- N1967---------- P1968---------- R1969---------- S1970---------- T1971---------- U1972---------- W1973---------- X1974---------- Y1975---------- Z1976---------- I1977---------- O1978---------- Q1979---------- V1980---------- A1981---------- B1982---------- C1983---------- D1984---------- E1985---------- F1986---------- G1987---------- H1988---------- I1989---------- J1990---------- K1991---------- L1992---------- M1993---------- N1994---------- O1995---------- P1996---------- Q1997---------- R1998---------- S1999---------- T2000---------- U2001---------- W2002---------- XUsing barrel codes (such as those listed above) to date the manufacture are reliable on Remington rifles, as the company rarely changed barrels on a customer's rifle.

Using these barrel codes to date a shotgun is somewhat unreliable, as shotgun barrels are often interchanged at random.
