I have very recently come into the posession of a Remington Model 10-A and would like to know if there is anything important I should know?
-How can I find the manufacture date?
-Have any replicas or reproductions been made?

Nice shootsgun you got dere, young man. Now, when were it made? Good question. Howzabout sometime between 1908 and 1929? Might can narrow that down some.

Remingtons can be dated, not by the serial number, but by a LETTER code stamped on the barrel. Mostly used to date rifles, can be used for shotguns IF the barrel has not been changed out. How do you interpret those letters? Why- though you would never ask-

Letters will be very small. Use a magnifier and a light that you can shine across the letters at an angle.

General info- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remington_Model_10

And of course, everybody should read the owner's manual for their firearm- https://www.remington.com/sites/default/files/Model 10.pdf

Anything else?- Oh- and welcome to the forum! Glad you found us!

I see a recoil pad has been added to the one you have.
The model 10's typically have very little collector value.
Very unlikely any reproductions will ever be made because the action was somewhat complicated with many machined parts. Too expensive to build now. I've owned a couple of them. A model 10 was the first repeater shotgun that I ever owned.
