Mybe the stock isn't original to the barreled action. Older recycled stock on a newer barreled action?

One thing that makes me not want to believe that? There's another at the gunshop in 25-06, made just like it best I could tell, and from the same seller.
I found a pic on a article by outdoor life, 50 year history of the 700, shows the evolution of it. The pic of the 69 BDL, the stock is identical, checkered and all.

I own zero Remingtons. But damned if y'all haven't peaked my curiosity now. 😂😇 Awaiting pics and final verdict...

Mine does look identical to the pic of a recent 700 BDL. I would like to know the manufacture date tho? Rem codes leave a lot to question compared to Win and others. By everything I've read it could be a 1986, 97, or 2012??? I'm certainly leaning toward a more recent manufacture now?

Anyone think we'll ever see the day again when you could call Remington with the SN and they'd date your firearm for you? Although, they weren't always correct, they were right the majority of the time.


Seeking early model Remington M700 KS Moutain Rifles with Brown Precision Stock, satin blued finish and jeweled bolt. Also, Gen 1, AWR and Moutain Guide Rifles. Should you have a wayward Remington 700 or M7 rifle, send me a PM.

FWIW......as others have said, the RR prefix in the serial number has nothing to do with the date of manufacture. The 2 letters that are stamped on the barrel tell you that. I have seen quite a few of the 700 BDL's made in recent years that had the "look" of the ones made back 25-30 years ago. If the rifle has a CG stamp on the barrel, and an RR prefix to the serial number, then that rifle is was made in 2012.

Jj, I believe you are correct. Regardless, I'm certainly glad to get the rifle! I was never interested in a 270 until last 6 months. I've got 30-30, 30-06, 7.62x54R, so I'm obviously a fan of 308, and and had been keeping my eye out for a 308. But I was ready to try a 270, and just hope I get the accuracy I expect? If so, it's found a home! I'm a gun shooter, hunter, not trader.

The first 2 guns I bought when I went to work in 1977, first payday a Remington, 3rd payday a marlin, and few weeks later I traded it to a Remington. Last Remington ever bought. Since then it's been all Win, marlin, & Tikka. The whiteline spacing sure made me believe it was pre 2000, but obviously I was wrong.

I wouldn't worry in the least about when it was made, as I have a number of newer Remington 700's and 7's, and they shoot just as good, if not better, than my older ones do. If you're happy, then that's all that matters. In the 270, you have what is probably the best deer cartridge ever, at least in my opinion.


One last thing, unless the trigger has been changed, the older 700's will have the Walker trigger, with the grooves. The newer ones will be smooth, and probably have that stupid screw showing.

Its an ugly little square that is a full of little dots. Can be scanned by computer or smart phone to get product info. Without looking it up I don't know the "techy" terms or definition of it.

Mbh, nothing like that, only other mark is on right side barrel, an oval with rep inside and h on outside, and behind that a triangle with a T inside. That's it.
Jj, it does have the slick trigger with a screw in the upper part for I believe an Allen head. Great trigger as is, maybe slightly heavy, but no creep or slop and breaks crisp! Hard to tell until I get behind a scope, but I believe I like it better than my Tikka?

I sure do thank you all for your help! I can't stand to have a gun I know nothing about.

The REP in the oval on the right side of the barrel stands for Remington English Proof.
With a barrel code of CG, the C is for April (BLACKPOWDERX for the month) and the G could be 1938, 1960, 1986 or 2012. Given that it has the X-Mark trigger you’re looking at April, 2012.
In some years there are three letters so as not to be confused with previous years.

You're reading the serial number instead of the barrel code. The barrel code will tell what month and year the barrel was made, and be very close to when the rifle was assembled.

As mentioned, RR prefix on the serial number is in the last 5-6 years of production.
