A Remington Model 12 Emptymag Tribute
#1
Sans weathered gravel.Wink

Not sure the submodel or year, everything I can find points to it probably being a 12A. Barrel length is close to 22", didn't get an exact reading though. I'm thinking this may either be a very early 12A or a late 12 with a round barrel maybe? Somewhere between 1915-1925 maybe? Rep to the first one that can nail the identification for me. *Xringshooter got the rep. This one is an original model 12 variant not a 12-A, manufactured in 1914.

I will try to include pictures of all the markings that I could find.

This thing is an absolute blast to shoot. I want another one now!

Now that's what you call a take-down .22! Has one pin on the left side holding everything together. Unscrew pin, pull it out (its a captured pin), slide both halves apart and stuff it in a BOB or GHB. Magazine holds 11 LR's +1=12. Not sure the capacity for shorts.

Nice! They don't build them like that anymore!

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Give Remington a call TEL: 1-800-243-9700 with the serial number and they should be able to tell you exactly what you have and the year it was built. IIRC you will go through the menu selection to get to the right section for the info. Worse case you will have to email them.

I'll contact Remington later today and see what they can tell me. If I remember correctly, they didn't start keeping detailed records of new serialized guns until about 1921 though.

There isn't much to information out there on the web but after further digging and reading I'm thinking mine was a first generation 12-A built sometime between 1910-1916. The model number wasn't stamped on the side of the receiver until 1917 and there were a total of around 800k model 12-A rifles built before they were discontinued in 1936. Originals sold for $12.65/each!

You may be surprised. A few years ago I contacted them about a Remington Model 8 in .32 Remington. It was one of John Brownings first semi auto rifle designs and it had a low 4 digit s/n and they found it. It was second year of manufacture, 1907.

Remington delivers! It was born in 1914 and it's an original model 12 not a 12-A.
