You will notice the year code repeats itself, but over 20 years difference, so even if it was used on the same model, in all likelihood sights or stocks would be different which would indicate the different date.For models without a serial number, we may be able to determine the age by the 2-3 letters that are stamped on the barrel.If your firearm does have a serial number, if you will call or email us the serial number and model number we can determine the approximate age of your firearm.The 700s have an alpha-numeric prefix, except for the earliest models, with A, B, C, D, E, G, or RR preceding the numbers.There are some subtle variations between each series, and in my experience the serial number range G were very good. You'd want a short action for that, but if you're going to get a PPC, it's going to require enough work that I'd recommend a custom action.I'm looking to get a Remington 700 to start with and build it out over time.

There are a lot of different designations like: SPS, BDL. Thanks Rob You'd want a short action for that, but if you're going to get a PPC, it's going to require enough work that I'd recommend a custom action.

(*) On 8/9/99, stopped stamping the barrels with the date code.

They continued to mark the date code on the end flap of the shipping box.

There are various stampings around the barrel, such as an "H", but it's all by itself with no other marks that look like they would go with it.

The serial number begins and ends with the letter "V"; would that help?

So my question is if I'm going to only use the action down the road does it matter which 700 I get?
