I e-mailed Remington after I got this about a year ago. It was maunfactured in 1979 and is in good overall condition with typical but very light wear. The barrel is a fixed 30" that has been professionally customized to a permanent fixed modified choke setting (ideal for Ducks). The seal has been replaced and it shoots very well. It is marked "MAGNUM" on the receiver and will take up to 3" shells. Asking $ 325 OBO(not looking for any trades) -includes a plastic case, two boxes of target loads (or a box of #3 black cloud Federal Non-tox amm0 -your choice). Pics coming in a few hours.
