That's a negative.Id say Late 90s SS. Thats a beauty. ALL 444s are JM. Remington hasnt made any as of yet.
Sweet! Thanks for that. I didnt know any REP barrels made it to the 444. I copied that and put it in my files.It has a cross-bolt safety, and doesn't look like a Remlin. So, it's going to be an SS, built some time between 1984 and 2002. 1984 through July(?) 1998 will be a Micro-Groove barrel. August(?) 1998 through 2002 will be a ballard rifled barrel.
That's a negative.
All of the receivers used for 444s were finished before the move to Ilion, but Remington did assemble enough to get noticed. And, many of those 'finished' by Remington did end up with REP barrels.
I happen to have one of the REP 444 barrels. The quality of machining is so poor, that it's an insult to the entire 336 family of firearms.
Was not tring to rub it in you face ....:biggrin: thanks for the infoI forgot to mention the possibility of it being a post-2002 "444" in my first post, came back here to fix it, and you're rubbing it in my face.... :biggrin:
That'll be a 2009 - ballard-rifled.
I always like Super Sports .......444ss.
