Thank you Gentlemen, your information has been added to the spreadsheet. Looking at some of your beautiful 37's I'm starting to think mine got beat with the ugly stick.

Walkerdog and rimfirerod are your date codes complete? I believe there should be 3 letters, would you please check and verify this for me? Thank you again Gentlemen !!!

OK, Old Man58, what am I missing?

Mine is #01517, EK, Oct. '41.

Sqweeler is 02864, KJ, May '40.

Dave K is 03603, KK, May '41.

I admit I'm not the sharpest pencil in the boat, but this doesn't compute. Maybe a barrel was replaced(mine?), er?

Of course, if I did miss something or misread some numbers or dates, I'll delete this and deny it ever happened.

Brer, 1st off that's a very nice looking 37 you have there!!! 2nd, your rifle should have a 3 letter date code. The 1st letter indicates the month of manufacture and the 2nd and 3rd letters (in your case) indicate the year of manufacture, as you say the ZZ stands for the year of 1953. Could you please provide me with the first letter of the code so that I can add it to the list? One of the things that I'm looking at is monthly production by serial number. Thank you sir.

big7mm, The first letter is the month designator, yours is "E" which is month 10 or October and the 2nd letter is the year designator, yours is "K" which is 1941.
From 1937(F) until 1942(L) Remington used a single letter to designate the year of manufacture, in 1943(MM) until 1953(ZZ) they switched over to a 2 letter designator for the year of manufacture and then in 1954 they went back to a single letter to designate the year of manufacture. This information can be found in the sticky "Remington Date of Manufacture(DOM) and ID Code Stamps" thread at the top of the Remington 37/40X subforum.

Here you go, hope this helps explain it more clearly than I can

Rem.37 03603

Here is Ser. No. 03603. Unfortunately for originality, it has been embellished some by the checkering and the pistol grip cab. But, I liked the appearance of ir so well that is one of the reasons I bought it.That is a 20X Lyman on it and I do have the single shot clip and magazine along with original sights.[IMG][/IMG]

Dave, I don't think the checkering hurts that rifle one bit especially for an ungloved hand and it looks really nice too.

Can you give me the 2-3 letter barrel date codes for my list please? Thank you.

Rem. 37

OM58 -

I just acquired 06315, barrel code ESS (10/47).

All original, fine shape all over, no extra holes, no rust or bubbling. Original Remington rear sight and the large Olympic front sight.

She sleeps tonight in her rack beside her older sisters 01196 and 02612 (already on your list).

Regards,


L84GLF

I feel the need to be a poo poo'er for a moment.

Date codes on barrels are always suspect as to rifle date. It is not at all difficult to swap barrels so unless you bought the rifle new and know its pedigree from that time forward how can one be so absolutely certain as to manufacture date?

Not that it matters a hoot, but think about it. I have 9 37's and don't have a clue as to release date from the factory of any of them. I swap barrels and so have others over the years. 37's remain wonderful rifles no matter the date codes. bob

Bob does have a couple of valid points.

Being in the exclusive 37 owners club should be limited to about 12,200 members.

But, there are there those like Bob that have more then one 37.

Many 37's have been reworked or parts exchanged to a point that little beyond the action remains "37".

As Bob says, most, but not all rifles have a history somewhat shrouded by the mists of time.

I'm lucky that the original owner of my 37 preserved all the documents, owners manual, letter from Remington where he returned it to Remingon in 1951 to have the sear exchanged. I also have all his documents (mimographed) from his club shoots in the 50's, etc.
