Thanks Greg and Oldman58. I now have a little serious thinking to do about this rifle.

I really do think it needs a good bedding and some decent screws in it to take those question marks off the table. The big ????? for me is about the D/T issue. That one I need to really think long and hard about. The bluing is almost gone from even wear, along the part of the barrel where you would take it up from a rifle rack...

I am going to think this through a while before I touch anything on it. Lots of thinking. I really wish I knew of one close by here that was already in a thumbhole stock and drilled and bedded. I would likely see about trading it.

LP,

This is just my opinion but since your rifle is not in it's original condition if I thought that bedding it would improve it's accuracy I wouldn't hesitate to do so. D&T might be another story though.

Oldman58,
The original butt plate on a 37 has an assy. # that will correspond to an assy. # stamped in the rear of the stock. The assy. #'s are not the serial # of the rifle.
I received "THE BOOK". I also have some more #'s for you, and other information. I will try to give you a call in the next couple of days.
Myles

Remington 37

Hello Old Man 58. This is Perchman50. I heard you are from New Jersey. I grew up in Lincoln Park, NJ. I would like to talk to you sometime.

Here are my 37 numbers:
00254-KF
01024-OF
11532-ZZ
11885-ZZ

That's it for now. Gotta go sharpen some hooks.

Thank you Perchman50, your numbers have been added to the spreadsheet.

I now have just over 100 serial numbers recorded, just under 1% of total Model 37 production. Thanks fellas and keep them coming

PM50, I'm an Okie by birth and a Texan by choice and I did live in Cherry Hill, NJ from 1963-69.

March, 2014 survey update

By now all of you know that Oldman58 and I have been conducting this survey. It has been an interesting process and we are still learning. We would not be able to continue our research without all of your help. We depend on you to help us with observed serial #'s and date codes. We have access to very few of these rifles, and must rely on information "fed" to us. Just a reminder, the model 37 has the serial # on the left side of the receiver, and the date codes should be on the right side of the barrel, I say should be because I have seen a photo of one that has the date codes on the barrel on the left side! We recently discovered that the earlier 37's had an inleted rear sling swivel attached with 2 screws, and the later ones are attached with the more common single screw through the base. Please stay on the lookout and keep sending us serial #;s, date codes and whether the rifle is original or modified, also please practice due diligence to make sure the numbers and codes are in the correct order.
Myles

Myles--I have been following 00203 for a while on GB. It has been modified quite a bit and is in no way original anymore. After numerous postings on GB, it has finally sold for $850. This would be one of the earliest numbers in your file. Hopefully, the buyer will find this thread and add his info to your compilation.

Survey

Very nice job.

I would like to offer a suggestion. I've gone through two of these my first one on the Colt Sharps. On that I found it much more informative to list by two different ways, not only by serial. I found on the Sharps data and later 40X data that it was more useful set up by date. That then gives a quick reference of what went on by the month or year, beginning serials and ending without having to hunt and find. It will show at a glance which receivers were used at random, etc.
The chart by serial is necessary as well, a second by date makes it better.

Regards - BrianJ

Thank you for your suggestion Brian. I can do this quite easily as I have the list in both Excel and Word formats but posting them on the board is another story. Myles had to post the list manually which you can imagine is very time consuming and as the list gets longer takes even more time. I have given some thought to copying my Excel file into a Word file then copying the word file and pasting it in a thread here but not sure if that would work.

05586 KSS Mine has an 8 with a diamond prior to the KSS. What does this mean? Only had the 37 for about a month now.

I have already taken the information that Myles has previously posted in this forum and added it to a spreadsheet that I an working on. If you have a Model 37 and are interested in participating I would appreciate your information greatly. The only information that I am interested in is the serial number on the receiver and date codes on the barrel, your information will not be shared with anyone. You may post your info in this thread or send me a PM here or send it to my personal email address [email protected]. If you choose to send an email please put Remington 37 in the subject line so that it doesn't go to my spam folder. Thank you gentlemen.

BTW mine is 07709 CTT 4-48.
Better late than never. My 37 (which Remington tells me was built in 1940, based on the serial number) is number 02201 and has, what appear to be 3 Maltese Crosses stamped on the barrel just before the letters PG.

Thank you both Larry and Jerry, your information has been added to the spreadsheet Larry I could be wrong it's happened before but I read your date codes of PG as being P=Month 6 and G=Year 1938 in short June, 1938.
