I just thought this is cool.
My buddy just aquired is recently late grandfathers model 721 rem in 30.06. This rifle is beautifull. It has the original blue job without a mark on it. OK, but only one small ding on the barrel. The only other modification is the stock was replaced with a stunning custom made golden yellow birds-eye maple stock with a cheekpiece custom fitted for the shooter, again not a single flaw. this rifle has seen very limited use. It has an old weaver 4x on it but still retaines the original iron sights. The bolt serial does match the rifle.
This gun is awsome. I have 2 Qs' if there are any remington buffs out there.
the date code is OTT. acoording to remington it was made in july of 1948.
the 721 was made between 1948 and 1962. They made 118,000. The serial on the rifle is 38196.
the quistion is does the 38196 mean it was the 38196th rifle made?
The other Q is antbody have an aprox value? Just thought this gun might be a little unique because of date of manufacture.
