I am sure this gun has never been fired. Pretty wood stock. Like new. I am sure I have several boxes of ammo I picked up 2 years ago, that will come with.
FTF preferred. $800

I understand it's new and not fired, but how old is that rifle?

Do you know when it was manufactured?

I looked it up years ago, and if I remember, the double RR meant it was made in the 1950s, if I remember correctly. I assumed I mis understood or searched incorrectly. The serial is visible in the picture

That's the serial number. I need the two letter date code on the barrel just ahead of the serial number.

First of all, Remington didn't bring out the Model 700 until 1962, and that gun wasn't manufactured in the 1950's either.

RR is pretty new, probably in the last 10 or so years.
Nice rifle.

"RR" should denote November 1997 as to when the action was manufactured, and stamped. But Remington used the date codes on the barrels as to when the rifle was assembled at the factory. so the action could be older than than when it actually was assembled and boxed up for sale.

That is why I asked for the date code on the barrel. Should be a two letter code, telling month and year.

Yup.
I don't particularly care for date codes as they have never pertained to anything I do (I'm not a clone guy) but I do know that a lot of folks like the slightly older actions. I true everything up myself anyway so any imperfections are of no consequence to me.

DOM means a matter of what the rifle is worth to me. Also determines what trigger the rifle is equipped with, and whether it will need to be replaced. Also, many of the those Remington rifles in the past ten to fifteen years, seem more prone to rust issues as well.
