go to www.remingtonsociety.com and look through the date codes. the date code should be on the left side of the barrel close to the reciever.

I cant really tell the year, if a mod could move this to rifle section, then you'll get more answers.

Moved you over to rifles- and Axxe nailed it- Remington used a barrel code (2-3 LETTERS) to tell month and year of manufacture.
