Not proof marks- barrel code marks. Look on the barrel, left side, just in front of the receiver. There should be 2 or 3 letters stamped there. You may need a bright light and a magnifier. Then go HERE- learn month and year. Rifle barrels rarely get changed- shotgun barrels DO get changed. Remington Dates of Manufacture
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
Thanks alot. With your help (and my wife's eyes) it appears that my rifle was built in Dec of 1949. Wow, and it is still a tackdriver. I plan on taking it hunting again this next fall. The scope on it I beleive to be original as well. it is a Weaver ficed 4x with crosshair and post. Not too shabby for $200.00 in a pawnshop.
