Yes, I know, I've shown up in the Remington department. I did see a very nice, little Remington today. It is similar to my Winchester 02A, a tad heavier. This one has a flip-up peep sight, takes .22 LR, and cocks by pressing back on a lever sort of thing, like a revolver has. It has a short barrel, as my little Win does. Couldn't find a Model number on it. (I'll take a magnifying glass next time I go look at it.)


Anyone know a reference book for looking up these old single-shots? Hadn't seen a Remington before that really appealed to me, until I saw this one. Probably 1920's or 30's.

This one will be up for sale soon, and I'd like to know enough to know if I ought to be seriously interested in it, or not.


Thanks very much.
May you be blessed with warmth in your home,
love in your heart, peace in your soul, and joy in your life.

Sounds like it has a hammer, and the only ones I can think of that would be small are the Model 4 rolling block and the Model 6 falling block. The 6 is really thin and light through the receiver area and I believe all had a round barrel. The Model 4 is a good bit heavier built and has an octagonal barrel. I'll see if I can find some pictures on line and add them. I have a Model 4 and that model does not have a model stamp on it. The serial number is under the barrel and has a letter J prefix. Also possible it could be a Model 2 which is even heavier and has an H prefix, but it is considerably heavier and longer than your Winchester. If it's fairly close to the size of your Winchester, I'm betting on a Model 4... the 6 would be lighter. Some 4s did have a round barrel, but more were octagon. Most were also takedown, either with a lever on the right side, or a screw. Very early models were solid frame (not takedown).

Thanks for the starting points. That Model 4 looks very nice! I'm going to track down a phone number and double check. The one I saw had something on the right side, to push down to be able to load the cartridge. The little rifle I saw has a round barrel. I found the listing for a Model 6. It looks like that's the rifle I saw. Hmmm, more research....

This kind of Remington looks right up my alley!

Thanks very much!

I'll bet you all figured I'd get around to looking at Remingtons, one of these days.

Darn, now the Remington prices will go up again biggrin.gif . Seems like as people "discover" them they have to have several and demand drives the price. Pretty soon Winchesters will be the cheaper buy.

The Model 6 is a lighter weight rifle by quite a bit and is a falling lock design instead of a rolling block like most Remingtons of that type.

Glad cp... jumped in and posted a link... I got off on other things (re-run of the NASCAR qualifiers) and forgot to look blush.gif .

Carl, thanks for your post. I don't have my heart set on a little Remington. I am looking for something along the lines of my Win 02A that I can put fancy sights on. I like the target sights of the Winchester 69 I have--but the rifle is too heavy and a bit too long for me. It's an attractive, sleek rifle, and, I learn when I shoot it. But I don't grin a lot, as I do when I shoot my 02A. The Remington Model 6 is now in the running....

So, I'm looking into things I might like. If you think of another one, would you let me know? Thanks much!

There are several Remington bolt action models that have decent target or peep sights, but the problem is that most will be about as heavy as your 69 Winchester. Light rifles are generally not equated with accurate target rifles. The 33-P, 42-P or 510-P would be good rifles and they might be slightly lighter than your 69. There are corresponding magazine fed rifles with peep sights also, that are similar to those single shots. Only one of those I have is a 510-P which is a good little rifle. I have heavier ones like the 513T and 541-X, but they weigh about 9#. The 521-T would be a very good one, but it probably weighs close to 7#, and it would have very good sights compared to the others, including the Win. 69.

Carl, thanks very much for your post. I've been trying to found out about the 33-P and the 42-P. The 510 might weigh too much.

I'll keep an eye open for these.

Carl, thanks. I couldn't find anything on a 42, and was wondering.

Do you happen to know how much the 33 and the 41 weigh? I haven't been able to find this.

41 weighs 5 lb. 4 oz. and I couldn't find what the 33 weighs, but I would guess it to be very similar. The 510 is 5 lb. 12 oz. I would go for a 41-P or 510-P because the 33 has to have the firing pin manually cocked. The 41 and 510 are self cocking when the bolt is cycled. I bought a really nice 510-P a couple of years ago for $135, but I'm sure I couldn't find one that nice again for that price.

Carl, thanks for posting the information. According to the books I've found on the web, the Winchester 69 weighs 5 pounds. It seems a heavy five pounds to me. That being the case, I need to check out something smaller than the 41 or the 510, and having good sights put on it, if it doesn't have them already. Self-cocking is a nice feature, I agree.
May you be blessed with warmth in your home,
