The date code was marked only on the end flap of the shipping box.
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.
Its a beautiful gun and I'd love to have an idea what it's... The V at the end means it is a standard 2-3/4" chamber. Remington shotguns were serial numbered in blocks of numbers.
The first letter is the year code and L would be either for 1964 or 1991.
We do not recommend dry firing any of our rimfire models.
