Moved you over to rifles- and Axxe nailed it- Remington used a barrel code (2-3 LETTERS) to tell month and year of manufacture.

I saw one at Walmart for $285 should I get it? I really do wanna.
NO! because more than likely it's a M770, not a M700. they are completely different rifles. the M700 is an excellent rifle platform, and the M770 is junk. heavy and gritty trigger, flimsy stock, rough feeding bolt that also binds and a pressed in barrel assembly. very cheaply made.
