Remington Model 37 production survey.



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all,

I am conducting a survey of the Remington Model 37 production dates by serial number for my own interest. I am interested in knowing approximately how many 37's were produced on a monthly basis throughout the rifles production span. 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.

Hey OM58, thanks for taking your time to do this.

Mine is 01517 but I don't have the barrel codes. Haven't had time to take it apart yet. Hope to soon, with more pics.

big7mm,

If the barrel on your Model 37 is a Remington made barrel you shouldn't have to take your rifle apart to find the date codes, they should be located on the R/H side of the barrel just forward of the receiver just above the stock line. Should be 2 or 3 letters, the first letter indicates the month of manufacture and the 2nd and 3rd if present indicate the year of manufacture. A custom barrel will be marked differently. Hope this helps. Thanks

Yup, you're right. I never even checked there. It is "EK", which would make it October 1941?

You're pretty sharp for an old man. Thanks.

Myles/OM58 -

Data sources - as part of determining which 37's are still in existence, I occasionally see a 37 for sale on GB or one of the other selling sites. Frequently, a serial # can be obtained from the listing (barrel date codes are another story).

Are you interested in having these numbers sent to you when observed?

If so, I would suggest senders let you do the screening for previous inclusion on your list and just send in any they might happen to see.

New subject - about a year ago, I sold 05558. I did not record the barrel date. I haven't seen it on the list, so fell free to add it as at least a survivor.

Hope this helps.
