    I have a Remington model 12CS that I inherited from my grandfather. I am trying to find out when it was made? All I have is it's serial number and a letter from the left side of the barrel. Do I call Remington to find out this information? It is older than the data base with all the letters so that doesn't help. Any ideas?

    EDIT: I think Josh above is correct.

    Or most likely correct.


    1930

    Date code for Y is 1930 and 1974. We know is wasn't made in 1974 and the Model 12 was made in 1930...so it must be.
