During the West Virginia Remington writers seminar we were treated to viewing several very high grade limited edition 200th anniversary rifles and shotguns. Other guns will become available such as the R1 pistol.

There will be several grades offered from “C” grade to the very highest grade. These photos are mostly the high grade representations of those guns being offered.The high grade guns will total 2016 of each one. The “C” grade will be laser engraved while the highest grade will be hand engraved and gold inlaid with hand carved stocks featuring various patterns. A few full set of the high grade guns will be auctioned by the NRA to name one example.

Obviously we were not able to shoot these guns but it was a treat just to handle them and admire the work it took to create them.

Prices of the higher grade 200th anniversary guns will be announced very soon. The hand engraving and gold accents is being done by a single master engraver over the past year or more. Seen up close his work is gorgeous! The wood grain is impressive as is the smooth shiny finish. Honestly these remind me of the way many higher quality guns were made many years ago. I believe most readers will appreciate the beauty of these fine guns.

    Special Edition: Guns that actually work. Limited run.

    • lifetimearearesident

      Do they work? Many limited edition guns are stored away never to be fired. Not sure if they work better.

  • FelixD

    Remington should just consider making quality guns again instead of “limited editions”.

    • Anonymoose

      Yeah. They really need to fix Marlin’s and their overall QC, and the darn R51 and RM380.

    • They are doing that as well.

      • FelixD

        Well Phil I think that is disputable. The R51 seems to have been less than stellar in performance and the V3 is nowhere to be seen. Trigger problems associated with the 700 have to be costing the firm a considerable amount of money and the repair/replacement process for the trigger recall have really diminished Remington’s reputation for quality and service. When this is added to the corporate decision to dump Para and the perceived lower quality of Marlin guns many consumers have come to question the veracity of the old firm.

        • Old firm and new management that knows what they are doing from what I’ve seen and been privy to. Marlins I saw and shot look much better than a year ago.
          The V3 is now also in production— Whats coming for the R51 remains to be seen.

          • FelixD

            I’m not sure what you’ve seen, but as a consumer, shooter and casual observer of the business for fifty years there seems to be a continuing question in the minds of many as to whether the company can continue in its current form. After Cerberus Capital Management, the layoffs, the move to Alabama and the class action suits what will be left of the company?
            I hope Remington survives and does well, makings tons of money for investors and employees. But, in the mean time, I wish Remington would again produce quality products actually tested and in production before they are advertised. Perhaps it would be to the company’s benefit if they review the business models of some of their competitors. But, I don’t mean Colt’s.

          • I did address that point in other post from this past week. The policy now is there will not be any new product announcements until the gun is in production and tested every way possible. As writers we will no longer test and report on prototypes or preproduction guns as we did with the R51. The announcement will only come when guns are in full production and headed out the door to distributors. No more announcing new guns months before they are ready. When you see an article here on TFB you will be able to go to your gun shop and purchase it at most within a few days.

  • Phil – WV resident here. Where was this located, Charleston?

  • John Shore

    They are all indeed gorgeous firearms, granted; However, I still see the 1950s-era common fire controls on the shotguns, and XMP triggers on the rifles. I guess that we will see.

  • greasyjohn

    Colt stopped making the WWI Replica (which was dumb) but they still made a fine commemorative 1911.

    Remington needs to get off their ass and make a more than great Model 8!

  • Joshua

    I have always hated Remington’s action release on the pump guns, never within my reach, and bloody sharp on the new guns, give me a Mossberg, or Ithica any day of the week

  • CavScout

    It’s called actually putting out the ACR. Rem will totally miss that train. Radom MSBS will be here before long.
