Only made for 3 years. Pretty rare to find a nice one I'd say. 75 years old...
It may really suck, but not a common shotgun.

m 29
it's actually in pretty nice shape. has a couple small splits where the butt meets the receiver that are fixable and has some play the barrel and tube jopn the receiver which I think can be tightened. I'm waiting for the manual from remington. there is a pachmire butt pad that i'm not sure how it is attached. It was my Dads so I'm sure it hasn't been shot for sometime.

Dont know what kind of help I can be, but I owned one once. I shot it for a few years before trading it off. Absolutely beautiful firearm, a testament to the skills of man. No plastic, no stamped parts, no potmetal castings. Just beautifully milled steel parts with nice walnut stock. When these were built we werent a "throw away society" these were built by skilled craftsmen one at a time and meant to last many lifetimes when cared for properly. However these early guns, while superbly built, may have not been the best design.

I finally received Info from Remington this morning. It kinda made me feel stupid about breaking the Model 29 down, it took about 20 seconds once I read the manual. It also gave me simple instructions on how to tighten the barrel to the receiver. There are provisions built into the gun for this. I broke it down, tightened the barrel, and epoxied two very minor splits in the stock (which are common to this design) in about 20 minutes. I now am very confident that it a safe, well built,very useable gun aside from a few small desigh flaws that really don't have anything to do with shootability, this is a nice gun with no doubt a long history of use. The book says the comes with a 26,28 30 or 32 inch barrel but this is a 24 inch barrel with a poly choke that there is no mention of. I have reason to believe it may be a law enforcement version but have no way of substanciating this. The man that sold to my dad had a brother that was a LEO and had given the gun to him. All I need now is to find an origional butt plate and the gun will be how it was ment to be. It has an after market recoil pad installed on it now.

the barrel is that length because of the poly choke.the PC may have been aftermarket.:rolleyes:

dteed4094 01-02-2010 08:37 PM

poly choke
If the PC is after market, the barrel would have to be altered to accept the screw on choke I would assume. Looks like OEM. Are the PCs silver soldered on or do they thread the muzzle?

It is quite easy to determine if any choke device is original to a gun. Simply look for a choke marking on the barrel. If you find a choke marking (full, modified ,IC, cylinder ect.) then the choke device is aftermarket. Factory installed choke devices didnt have a choke marking on the barrel as they were manufacture without any choke restriction in order to make the choke device work.
