    What year is 700 BDL

    97324B5C-7225-44F8-B295-E8F9D772EDB7.jpgE2975794-CCDB-4A80-9553-7AA525FBE972.jpg

    Having trouble identifying the year of this rifle. There are no letters in the serial number. S/N 191398

    It is a 700 BDL chambered in 22-250. Will upload pics shortly

    Welcome to the forum from New York.

    Bob

    The following serial number information is for Remingtion firearms manufactured after 1921

    Remingtons manufactured after 1921 have a code located on the left side of the barrel near the frame that identifies the year and month of manufacture. The following letters correspond to the months of the year, for example B=January, L= February and so on:

    B – L – A – C – K – P – O – W – D – E – R – X

    What is the barrel contour and length? Sights on it? You need to look for the date code on the barrel separate from the serial number. Where are you located?

    I bet Mayor will have some good input as soon as he see it. My 700 BDL in .22-250 is a Varminter. Heavy 26" Barrel without ever having sights. Its from the early 70s.

    I am seeing D,B,M or N,12

    I didn’t think this rifle was produced until early 1970s.

    I have found this which may help:

    700 receivers with ser# 1000-387347 started in 1962 until 11-68. 6200000-=6899999 started in 11-68 until Aug of 1975. A6200000-A6899999 started Aug 1975 until about Jan 1980. B numbers were from 1-1980 to 11-87. C numbers started from 11-1987.

    I believe this info is from Remington 700 25 years 1962-1987 by John F.Lacy.

    Its interesting to note the shift in S/N notation in Nov 1968. The Gun Control Act was signed into Law in Oct 1968 making serial numbers mandatory!

    I was told this rifle was made in 1968 and actually seen action in Vietnam. Didn’t believe it cause I though the first manufacturing date was not till 1972 or 1974. The guy I got it from, his older brother was a decorated vet from early Vietnam. Plausible story I guess.

    Thanks to everyone one that helped out today. Still have not pinned down a date

    Looks to be Jan ‘65 or ‘66.
