    Hi,
    I just acquired a very nice 31-TC. Upon measuring the bore and choke, as I always do, I find the bore is .734" and the choke area is .707", .027" of constriction. This is fine for my shooting but I wonder if it was built this way, or back-bored later? On the left side of the barrel, just in front of the receiver, are very small letters "ETT". Was this some famous barrel wizard or just some of Remington's markings? The barrel is marked "Full".
    Thanks in advance,
    Jim Legg

    The E stands for the month BLACKPOWDERX (the letters are used for the month 1-12) looks like october. The TT is the year of production which you can go to the remington society and look that up.

    I'd say the choke has been opened up a little. Some of the 31's had larger bores, but would normally be choked .035" or better for "Full". .027" is right between IM and LF. That gun probably hit's them pretty hard still.

    I believe SS and John are correct. October 1948. Wayne

    Remington Owners,

    Remington Year of Manufacture Codes maybe found on the barrel of your Remington rifle [or shotgun] on the left side, just forward of the receiver; the first letter of the Code is the month of manufacture, followed by one or two letters which are the year of manufacture. For shotguns with removeable barrels, the code will be valid for the manufacture of the barrel; maybe for the receiver, as barrels do get switched around.

    According to the "Blue Book of Gun Values", the coding continues as follows:

    Month Codes: [first letter]
    B - L - A - C - K - P - O - W - D - E - R - X
    1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12

    Year:______Code: [second (and third*) letters]
    1930_______ Y
    1931_______ Z
    1932_______ A
    1933_______ B
    1934_______ C

    1952_______ YY

    1954_______ A
    1955_______ B

    1998_______ S
    1999_______ T
    2000_______ U
    2001_______ W
    2002_______ X

    * the years 1943 though 1953 had double letters: ie, MM = 1943

    As maybe seen, the year code letters duplicate; some knowledge of when the model was introduced should resolve the actual year of manufacture.

    Remington owners: COPY this table to your Hard Drive......! !

    Thank you all so much! I usually hang out on the Doublegun forum, as they are my main passion. I knew you were a good bunch of guys here, also, and you proved it again.
    Thanks again,
    Jim Legg
