You wouldn't believe how many holster makers there are out there, with holsters for your (mine to) "New Army" Remington ... all you have to do is put a pot of coffee on, make some toast, butter it up, sit down and start with a search engine ... you will be at it a while.
Oh, about that advise about not keeping your Remington in the holster, he's right. Don't do it, at least for long periods.
Gonna store it for a while, wipe it down with a light coat of all things, vegatable oil.
Hope this helps.
