Default Model #

I just checked the model number, It's a Remington " Fieldmaster Model 121 "

tube fed, wood has only some scratches.

I carefully checked the bore, then put three rounds thru it, and the function was perfect.

I have'nt touched it yet, I want to go slowly in case I got something here.

I don't know what to do with the serial number or how/if I can track it to get an age on it.

Default Rust/serial number

The serial number is on the the left side {flat} of the reciever just over a big screw. Not on the barrell.

I'm working on pics, but I got a cheap dig camera.

The serial#'s are on the receiver but there should be at least two letters stamped on the barrel, that would be the date code.
Look on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. It may be pretty faint. You have to look close to see it on my 1945 remington 141.
All remington rifles from 1922-present should have 'em, if its not there then its older or I'm

0000 steel wool is fine enough that it won't hurt your bluing. If the bluing is gone underneath the rust-it's because it (rust) was already deeper than the surface anyway.

Default rust removal

I thought I'd give it a try. If this works I'll be headed for the barrel of barreled actions at the little country gun shop I spend some time at. I will expound on the clamp connections so I can do multiple pieces at once. As it looks the screw between the two sissor halves is not an adaquate connection to work on the second half. I'll also find out if the water used in the process will freeze at 25 degrees, the temp in my garage when I started. DO NOT HOOK IT UP LIKE THIS, THE WIRES ARE REVERSED. NEG to the PART, POS to the ANODE. SORRY
