Remington 700 Models at a glance Remington 700 BDL - This is the quintessential Remington 700, these rifles are equipped with the X-Mark Pro Trigger system which can be adjusted and avoids the stigma attached to the previous versions of triggers.
Remington offers similarly styled, less expensive versions under the Special Purpose Synthetic or SPS package. The program will change the weapon name from M24E1 to the XM2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle.The serial number begins and ends with the letter "V"; would that help? “LIGHT WEIGHT” (“LW”) (ALSO INCLUDES M/1100 “LT”) U 20 GA. H .410 BORE (2 ½” OR 3”)Model 1100 LETTER PREFIX 1964 TO APPROX.I'd like to know when it was made, can anyone help?? The barrel date code says B o 8 which I assume means Jan/77, this does not make sense being that this rifle was not manufactured after 1962. I have an 870 Wingmaster in excellent condition w/a 28", Modified choked barrel that has a 2-3/4" chamber.There are various stampings around the barrel, such as an "H", but it's all by itself with no other marks that look like they would go with it.
