Welcome to the forum Harry. Rules are simple, be nice and join in.

I know that if you go to the Remington web site you can look plug in your model 700 Serial number and find out the date it was made. I havn't tried it for an 870, but you might give that a try and see if it works. Ruger does the same for it's guns.

easiest and most accurate way is to email remington the serial numbers of the guns you want to know the dates of and they will email you back with the date.

Here is a link to the website that will tell you how to do that. http://remington.custhelp.com/cgi-bi...i=&p_topview=1

While searching for the manufacture date of my 870, I came across this web page. I knew mine was old but was surprised to learn it was made in May 1928. Just check the markings on the left side of the barrel to determine month and year of manufacture.

Surprised... I'm shocked. The 870 was introduced in the 1950s.
The barrel codes, etc., are not 100%. I have 3 1100s, all bought brand new, that don't have any barrel codes, in spite of being made right in the middle of the barrel code runs. I contacted Remington, and they told me one of mine was made in 1966. I asked them how come I bought it in 1964. Oops. I don't think the tracking is perfect, but they can usually hit it pretty good.
