I thought what better place to seek help and answers than here. A few years ago I picked up a Remington Custom Shop “Grade II” in 7mm Rem Mag from a buddy. It’s gorgeous French Walnut and I just couldn’t say no. Truth be told I’m moving homes and just kind of rediscovered it in the safe. In the hierarchy of custom shop rifles I’m curious where this falls? Been curious for details on it since I had it as I struggled to find much in the way hard information other than it appears to be “above” the “Grade C”? Any help on history or details would be awesome! I hope I posted this in the appropriate section. If not my apologies in advance.

Beautiful rifle. It would help to know the year it was built. Go here and see how to determine the date of manufacture. Post some pictures if you need assistance. The serial number can also help. If you post it, only show the first four letters/numbers like A374xxx.

I actually got a card with it that dated it to 1989 and listed the name of the gentleman that built it. Let me see if I can find that card. So much of my stuff is still in boxes. I do recall that the last name of the gentleman that built the rifle was strangely enough Remington

Being custom, I’m not sure what the options were but the checkering on the stock seems very unique, especially around the pistol grip.

Maybe rkittine can help on this. I only know that you have a beautiful rifle. You would have a difficult time finding any rifle of this quality today. It took me back to the days of my childhood when the rifle rack was above the fireplace mantle and the rifles often rivaled or exceeded the furniture in terms of the quality of the woodwork.

I’m jealous!

Beautiful Rifle. Tim McCormick worked in the Custom Shop for over 35 years and retired as its manager prior to the move to Dakoda Arms. Let me know what you find in your records and I will reach out to Tim.
