    I'm hoping someone might know about the odd barrel code on a recently aquired Remington M24 / s/n 877XX. The code on the left side of the barrel near the receiver is O X ( which I understand to mean July of 1929 ) followed by either the top 2/3rds of the number 2, or the top 2/3rds of a ? symbol. It appears to be quite stylized, and maybe 25% larger than the O and X, but it appears to be struck off center so I can't tell for sure what character it is.

    Also, this little plinker has a 19" barrel, and it's chambered and marked for .22 LR only. I thought the .22 short models had the 19" barrel, and that the .22 LR models had 21" ?

    I'd appreciate any info!

    After looking threw three books, all I show is the 21 inch barrel for both. But yours has a 19 inch barrel, which leads me to believe they were both 19 inches instead of 21. Since Browning copied this design and made it famous, it too has either or---19.25 or 22.25 but the shorter barrel is for the long rifle in this case. Amazing that Remington couldn`t make a go of it-while Browning had success with it almost thirty years later.
