Vanishing Serial Number?
 
I have a single shot bolt action Targetmaster 22 and cannot find the serial number. All other numbers are very visible even the patent numbers. There is no rust and the rifle is in 85 to 90% cond. There is no wear as to where it might be to rubbed off or worn. Anyone know where I might could find it?

Vanashing Serial #
 
Hello alll


RON L here = SERESURPLUS



Just a Guess, as I don't know your rifle, It might have been made back long enough that it had No Serial # required? I've seen a few of ther 22's especially single shots that fit that bill? Usually when sold, some dealer would listthe patent # as the serial? LOL Ya might want check into that! The ATF might be bale to help, But, I'll be damed If I recommend you call that pack of Jackals?

Prior to 1968, only hand guns required a serial number. Remington chose not to serial number their 22 rifles until BATF required it. No doubt, your Remington was made before 1968.

The letter codes can be found on the left side of the barrel, just in front of the receiver. Note: shotgun codes indicate when the barrel was made, not necessarily the receiver.

The first letter is the Month Code

B L A C K P O W D E R X
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

The second (and third) letter(s) are Year Codes
