A friend of mine just acquired a nice Remington 3200 One of One Thousand four barrell skeet set. A quick Google search didn't produce much information.

Trying to get an estimate of how many of these sets were made - and how much rarer the One of One Thousand set would be ?

Anyone have any info re: this ?

Thanks in advance

I recall reading here that the 4 barrel sets had the sub-gauge barrels built by Simmons ... I may be corrected by someone more knowledgeable. Bill Malcolm

By no means am I an expert on this subject--hint, I suggest you/your friend contact remington on this subject. My understanding is that remington offered 4 barrel sets and 1 of 1000 guns. I don't believe they were intermixed. I do recall that after the 3200 production was discontinued, Remingtom offerd 20/28/410 barrels that they would fit to your receiver. Perhaps an earlier purchaser had a 1 of 1000 and sent it back to have the 3 barrels fitted. Sounds like a sweet package--had a friend that had an orginal 4 barrel set and wanted to sell it to me at a great price---wisely I declined (one of many stupid things I have done).

Remington DID make 4 barrel sets. Simmons DID make barrels in 20, 28 and 410 for the 12 guage guns. Jimmy Prall, a great Remington pro shooter, shot the 3200 in 410 and 28 guage for a long time. (1100 in 20 and 12). The Remington and Simmons barrels were both well made but a true Remington barrel set is the most desired. Matter of fact, I wish I owned a nice set with either set of barrels. They are fine guns but harder to shoot good scores than a 3200 tube set. Fred

smifshot's right. There are original factory Mod. 3200, 4 barrel sets in the world and they garner a nice price. Simmons also made barrels to fit in the sub gauges. I've seen several samples of each and rarely for sale....breakemall....Bob Dodd

In the late '70's a friend of mine owned a 3200 with four barrels - 12-20-28-.410. The 20-28-.410 barrels were made by Simmons. It wasn't a "1 of 1000", but was a very high quality gun.

They must have been around for quite a while.

Best,
Dennis

about 4000 for a 99 percent set is market price- rem barrels

2500 market price for a 99 percent- with the three sub barrels made by simmons

I have a friend who had a 4 barrel competition Skeet that was absolutely beautiful. I didn't see him for a few years and when I did run into him, I asked about the gun and he said that he'd sell it to me (5K, this was back when I was making a lot of money) and I was very excited about it. When he brought the gun to the club, he opened the case and I noticed that he had the gun ported during the years that I had not seen him. DEAL OFF! Never buy a ported 3200, unless it's REAL cheap.

Sorry, I went off on a bit of a tangent.......

Trons comments reminded me

I will say- some of them had great wood- I would pay a premium for one with great wood

The gun is 1 of 1000 and they are Remington Barrels( 28"),and each barrel has serial # that matches serial # of the gun. Broke 49 of 50 with 28 gauge barrels yesterday in the WIND! Rather PlEASED, if I may say so! Hope that this will clear up some of the speculation.Thanks.
