Ok i am now confused ??? I have been reading on serial #'s and everyone says that if it is stamped MR its a Remlin but the serials should be after 2010 right? so mine should have a 90 or 91 serial I would think... My serial is MR14652B so shouldnt that be from 1986? Its a 1895SBL, Did Remington change the way serials are made?

Thanks,
Tim

If it starts with MR it is a Remington-made gun, no matter what the other numbers are.

Doc is correct. It's a Remington made gun, probably a 2010 or 2011. Nobody has figured out the numbering system that Remington is using. It is NOT the same as the old Marlin numbers, so the 14 has no date meaning that we can decipher at this point.

I know on every other Remington I own, there is a date code, separate from the serial number, that is stamped on the barrel. I'm not sure if the Remlins are going to use a code like this or not.

OK, now I'm confused. How does 444nut's system work on CaligunNuts serial number. First letter is M, May or March. Second letter a R, what year? Or does he mean first number? 1 equals 2011

I don't think we know how to decipher the Remlin serial numbers yet. For all we know, MR means Marlin/Remington. Until somebody posts what the numbers mean it's all a guess. I don't think they are going by the old system.

Just before we closed the North Haven plant, there was talk that remington wanted to get away from Marlin's intelligent serial system. They want a system more in line with what remington uses........

My best guess is the M R would be Marlin + Remington the numbers must symbolize a code for sure. Whether the numbers stand for month year or lot at is point it don't matter as long as the MR doesn't stand for "M"ajor "R"ejection, "M"ust "R"eturn, etc. ::) And back to "M"ost "R"eliable ;).

Well it looks and shoots good so far, my only concern with it is the scope rail, it is nice and straight on the receiver but it is a little on the right side of the barrel as it goes out. I only noticed it the other day after reading others posts to check it over real well. If I hold the rifle up straight in front of me looking at the rail I can see the left side of the barrel but not the right so I guess it may have to go back to Remington to get that fixed. Other then that its pretty good, I can polish out some of the rough/sharp areas. I sure love this gun though.

I guess I wont even bother trying to figure out the serial number if Remington went away from the correct way to date with the #, At least my .44 Mag is a 1976 model so I know it was built to higher standards.

If the drilled and tap holes for the scope base is off center It would need a new receiver. Good luck with that. I hear stories of waits of 6 months or so on warranty work. This makes me wonder if they're still using up the left over receiver from NH. CT. or they haven't learn anything yet.

Please note that during the years 1999, 2000, & 2001 (highlighted in red above), Remington did not stamp the date code on the barrels. The date code during these years was placed on the box. After 2001, they went back to the usual Remington firearms serial numbers stamped on the barrel. You will also notice that the year code letters repeat themselves. This means that sometimes you will have to consider the specific model of Remington firearm that you have. For instance, if you have a Remington rifle that you know was made a long time ago, then you won't expect the year date code to be from modern times. Some Remington models were only produced during a certain time periods. Knowing that will help you to better decipher the date codes from your Remington firearms serial numbers.
