I am at a loss trying to date my rifle. Went to the Remington site and tried to use their system, they talk of a 2 or 3 letter code on the left side of the barrel near the receiver. I can find a single letter "J" and that is all. The "J" means that it was made either 1940 or 1962, yet I read in another post that the serial # starting with 5**,*** means it was manufactured in 1921. My serial # is 474,***.
Can anyone help me figure this out ?

Thanks...Mike

I have searched so many forums & sites, can't recall which one it was. I know the number was in the 500K range so I just figured my rifle was pre 1921 being 474K. As I had said, I can find only one letter and the Remington site doesn't address that, or give any dates according to serial #...
