Re: Remington Model 31 16g
The Model 31 was Remington's first side-ejecting repeating shotgun. Remington's records show that about 196,000 of these were made from 1931 to 1949.
I'll need a bit more info before I can give you an idea of the value.
What's the barrel length? It should be somewhere between 26" and 32", and it can make a $200 difference in value.
Also, can we get a picture of the whole thing all at once? I want to take a look at the total form. There were several variations in about 20 different grades, and while I personally may not be able to nail it down completely for you, I'll do my best and others will come along to help.
Finally, dating a Remington from this time frame (any made between 1921 and 1979) requires knowing a two- or three-letter code stamped on the barrel. The stamping is pretty small, but it should be easy to make out. What are those letters?
