You are watching: Remington model 12 22 pump serial numbers
Hello.I am a newbie and have my grandmother”s Remington Arms 22 short, long, or long rifle. I believe it is a Model 12A Slide Action Rimfire. The serial number is RW 158349, the Pedersen”s Patent dates are 1909-1912, and the soft butt plate says Remington UMC.Can anyone help me figure out the date of manufacture?Also, there is a very small marking on one side that appears to be “2” or “5” or “S”. Does anyone know which it is and what the marking means?
I can not link it from work but if you search “remington 12a serial numbers ” a link to remingtons archives comes up . You can research it from there .
Introduction Year: 1909 Year Discontinued: 1936If I am getting it right, the RW in your serial number means it was manufactured in November, 1928.http://www.remingtonsociety.com/questions/BLACKPOWDERX.htm

Thank you. Your suggestion led me to serial number information for Remington firearms manufactured after 1921. This was helpful because I now know that my grandmother”s Remington is pre-1921.So my new question is this:How do I determine the manufacture date of a pre-1921 Remington 12A with serial number RW 158349?Can anyone point me in the right direction?

My grandmother”s rifle does not seem to fit the criteria for rifles manufactured after 1921. For one thing, the RW is on the bottom of the barrel, not the top.Therefore, I am beginning to wonder if the “RW” simply stands for “Remington Works”, which is included in the information stamped on the top of the barrel.

Thank you. However, the Barrel Code Location Diagram at this site bears no resemblance to my grandmother”s Remington. Therefore, I think her Remington must be pre-1921. Furthermore, I think the RW on my grandmother”s Remington must be a coincidence and that it stands for Remington Works instead of being a date code.Someone please correct me if I”m wrong.Does anyone know if it is possible to date a pre-1921 Remington based on the serial number?
From what I”ve heard, Remington didn”t start keeping serial number records before 1921, so answer is probably no.
Still, it reminds me when I was living in a townhouse in Alexandria. The old lady next door knocked on my door one day and said she caught her grandson, who was living with here, hiding two rifles in his room. She wanted NO guns at her house, so she asked me and my roommate if we wanted them. They were both .22″s. My roommate, since he actually owned the townhouse got first choice. So he chose like a modern day Marlin 60 semi-auto .22 LR. I was left with the second one, a Colt Lightning in .22 long. (Not .22 lr)Stupid room mate, I later sold that Colt for BIG bucks. It was manufactured in 1917 by researching the serial number. I think it was free back then, now I think Colt CHARGES you to look up a serial number.

I have a take down (lever on right), trapdoor (breach lock lever) Remington 22 rifle with the serial number J227904 under the barrel forward of the fore stock. It has a 22 stamp and a P mark there also. What type of 22 round fits it?When is the manufacturing date?Please and thank you!
Bannick, I can”t answer you, but there are folks here who can. Perhaps you should post your question as a new topic. I don”t think your question is likely to be viewed by the people who can help. Also, a few photographs are an amazing aid to proper identification.
