Remington 121 Fieldmaster 22 Pump Made 1936 Not 12

The Remington 121 Fieldmaster was introduced in 1936 and manufactured until 1954. This one was made in the second year of production (SN 13973 - 1937) and has some unusual markings notably both “ILION WORKS” and patent numbers (rather than dates) in the barrel address and there are no date code markings. Workmanship is the typical American high quality because the poisonous post-war McNamara inspired management practices had not yet infected American industry (the first casualty of which was quality). It features a 24” barrel with adjustable sporting sights, will feed 22 Short, Long & Long Rifle ammunition, take-down, tube feed, cross bolt safety and very nicely figured walnut stocks with checkered steel butt plate. It is a fairly uniform, blended brown and gray patina while the bore is mirror bright and shiny with strong, sharp rifling and the stocks are completely sound with thinly scattered light handling marks and about 85% of an ancient refinish (the wood is still mostly proud to the metal). There are some impact marks around either side of the front sight dovetail and a later Remington front sight is situated there. Receiver and trigger group serials match. An elegant 22 pump from the period before the demise of quality manufacturing in the US.
