I got this gun 40 years ago from my grandparents. My grandpa have used it. Anyone have a guess on the year of production
I am looking also to get it re-blued. Anyone suggestions?

Probably 1962, but could be 1940:

As far as rebluing goes, I don't think I would. The cost of a quality job may exceed the value of a cherished family heirloom.

Unless it is just in awful shape, I wouldn't have it redone. Clean it up and keep it as is. The blemishes and marks are reminders of your grandfather. I think redoing it would certainly diminish the sentimental value and probably not increase resale value enough to make it worth doing.

If your rifle has a grooved receiver it is probably 1962. If you want it reblued ask around at local gun shops to find out if there are any local gunsmiths that re blue rifles.

Great information and thank you for your input. It does have a grooved receiver. I am betting it is a 1960’s. My grandfather passed in 94 at ninety. So 1940 could be in play. But the grooved receiver doesn’t get talked about in those years
Thanks again for your wisdom

Another bit of information, the "5" following the PJ indicates an "employee sale". Was your grandfather a Remington employee or could he have purchased the rifle from a Remington employee?

They are only 'original' once, any re-do is just a re-do.
And, ime, except for some few, real restoration specialists (read: expensive) the urge to 'make it better' overcomes the 'make it like new from the factory'.
Therein is the difference between a restorer and a refurber.
Imo, A well cared for original is more appealing than a shiny non-original 're-do'.
