i read the PG codes the same way, but I've twice now gotten Remington to confirm my serial number corresponds to a 1940 build. Do you know if they just estimate the date based on a rough serial number range? Also, any idea what the three "Maltese Crosses" before the date codes mean?

Other differences have shown up between serial #'s and build dates on other guns. Sometimes a gun was built, but not shipped until a couple years later. The maltese crosses are either inspector marks, or proof marks. They have shown up on many 37's but unfortunately can not be attributed to any person or process.

Thanks for the history Myles. I've often wondered how many hands my 37 has passed through on its way to me. It was obviously well cared for along the way.

Hi, FNG here and figured I should make this my first post.
# 09376 and a code of, WWO. There is no other letter code before the WW. It was my father's rifle and 1950 would be about right. Have you found any reverse date codes?

serial and dates

New member. Stayed up late but had to drag out the rifles for dating.
03068 K J
01552 W F

03068 has been restocked prior to my ownership. Lyman 20x

01552 original stock, unertyl 10x

Question. Did the original guns come with peep sights?

I wondered if some came with no sights for scope mounting?

Thanks, glad to have found this forum. I have enjoyed old rimfires for many years.

Here are my Rem 37 serial numbers and date codes

0166 FF MAY 1937
0660 FF MAY 1937
2382 PJ JUNE 1940
2754 OJ JUNE 1940

I really enjoy shooting the Remington 37. They are works of art that shoot as good as any target rifle out there.

What is the lowest number reported. I think I heard the first 44 were prototype rifles sent to Camp Perry in 1936.

Thank you slumberingbear, your numbers have been added to the spreadsheet. I have a concern about the month date codes on 0166 and 0660, I do not show a month code "F", how did you determine that they were manufactured in May? I show that May had a date code of "K." Also on 02754 you say it was made in June but I show the month code of "O" as being July? SN# 00123 is the lowest SN# so far, your 00166 is second. Thank you.

OOPS, bad eyes I guess. #0166 and 0660 both have PF which is June. and #2754 would be July.

Thanks for correcting my info. What is the hightest number recorded?
