    I am looking at a Remington 3200 that has 30" barrels that are marked full and mod. and has a straight stock and a flat rib. Is this a field gun? It does not say "trap" or special trap , no markings. All I know it has the updates on it. Thank you

    Field grade most likely.

    Place it on the butt with the rib flat against a door jam. If the stock angles away it is a field set-up.

    All the trap guns offered for sale were Full/Imp Mod, or Full/Full, your choice of 30 or 32 inch barrels, straight comb stock or monte carlo type stock. It also had the step rib. Some were not marked trap.

    With out seeing a picture, I believe what you are describing is a field model. Those ribs did not have a step in them immediately in front of the receiver.

    ORF,


    There were other 3200 choke combinations produced in Trap models beyond those you cite. For a period Remington would build you one to order.


    Field configurations have a drop at the stock. Trap versions of most all brands have combs that are parallel to the barrels--therefore the door jam test.

    I know the Remington custom shop would do about anything one wanted to pay for and did so until the mid 1990's or maybe later on the 3200's. I was referring to what was available thru dealers and and in published brochures that was available to the general public.

    I have seen at least a couple of trap guns that have had the drop modified by resetting the glass bedding on the tang. I have a One of 1,000 that has had the comb shaved. These would pass your door jam test as a non trap gun set up but were not actually field guns. Some did this to the stock to get a fit they wanted. I think the question was whether it was a field or trap model originally that he was looking at. Maybe I misunderstood the question dutchman1968 posted. I have been known to do that before.
