Video: Remington Model 17

Although the pump-action design was not new, the Remington Model 17, with its john M. browning and John Pederson improvements, evolved into a hammerless design, forming the basis for the modern pump-action shotguns. It is considered the grandfather of many of today’s most popular modern pump actions, including the Remington 870 and Mossberg 500, both of which have been produced more than 10 million times.

The Remington Model 17 holds a very important place in the history of shotgun design in the United States, and you can learn more in this “I Have This Old Gun” segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
