    Nice looking 3200. This gun is however, interesting to me in that the serial number indicates a fairly early, first year production gun. The receiver indicates a gun that Remington started producing at about 30,000 serial number, since it only has a single large cross pin in the upper part of the receiver near where the shoulder of the stock meets the receiver. The early models, had two of the cross pins. One as shown in the photo, and another slightly larger about one inch below the pin that is shown. The lower pin is the one that originally held the tang in place in the receiver. When the factory updates were done in the later guns, the allen head screws in the lower part of the breech held the tang in place and therefore replaced the cross pin, so the later receivers looked like the one pictured, as Remington manufactured the receiver without the lower hole and cross pin. The early receivers, when updated after production, had the lower cross pin cut off on each end and the end re-inserted into the receiver to fill the holes. They no longer touched the tang since they were not needed to hold the tang in place. I believe the tang hole was either welded shut or the entire tang was replaced to make it stronger. A piece of steel was also added between the top and bottom tangs in an attempt to eliminate any movement that could crack the stock. In addition all of the first year guns I have seen, and I do own a first year gun that has a 4,000 higher serial number than this gun, had a pointer on the side plate, except it had no engraved design around the pointer, only vegetation around the pointers feet. That engraved framework appeared on later models. The vegetation around the pointers feet was also different in the later models from the early models. I guess I am one of that "cult" that is mentioned on this site ocassionally, because I happen to like the 3200's. Possibily someone out there can tell me where I am going wrong here or if this could be a special gun, or explain the differences I have mentioned. Again, very nice gun, nice wood, and nice pictures.

    OldRemFan,
    I have included some additional pic's for you and did some investigation on the serial number & updates. There is another forum were I was able to find a similar discussion link at http://doublegunshop.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=192944&page=2
    This gun appears to have had the receiver upgrade done at the Remington factory as there is a significant gap for the dot between the OU and Serial Number. I have a engineering background and work with injection molds and would be able to detect the visible signs of weld, this has not been welded. I checked exterior and interior surfaces of the action and no sign of weld what so ever. The action does have the cap screws in the bottom corners of the breach face. I would guess that Dick is probably correct and the receiver may have been replaced with the upgraded version at the Remington factory.

    Thanks for the information guys. Makes sense. This is the first time I have heard that Remington had replaced the whole receiver on the early guns. Seems like an expensive way to do the upgrade. It would be interesting to know what percentage of the upgrades were done this way, and why. I have seen quite a few of the factory upgrades that did not have the receivers replaced.

    My One of 1000 has only one pin also. I have always assumed that the receiver was replaced as the One of 1000 models were made in the 1973-74 time period.
