Hi Guys,

Good friends father is a big time competitive shooter and is now 89 and can no longer shoot. He is asking me to help him sell one of his most recent purchases and before I list it I want to make sure I do the best job I can for him. He's a WW2 Pacific Army Vet and just a great guy. I need help id'ing these barrel stamps and hopefully figure out who made the barrel that is on it. He told me it is a VERY accurate rifle and it has very few rounds down the tube.

Thanks for any help,

Billy

If it helps any Mo Dafina Master Class Shooters sold him the rifle. I'll give them a call next week but was hoping someone might recognize some of these proof marks.

Billylo right side markings are consistent with any Remington barrel, magnaflux mark, Remington proof mark and test stamp. As for the left side markings, it should be month, year and assemblers marks, but it is 40x so the custom shop may be allowed to mark the rifles they assemble their own w

The letters "AH" stand for March - 1987

"8 TWIST" signifies a rifling of 1:8 Inches
