The “Big Green” isn’t going to let the opportunity to celebrate 200 years of gunmaking slip by—let’s face it, this is the first time an American gunmaker has reached the two-century mark. Available only this year are its “Limited Edition”—only 2,016 each—engraved firearms, including Model 870 and Model 1100 shotguns, Model 700 and Model 7600 rifles and Model 1911 R1 pistols. The guns will include commemorative engraving featuring a 24-kt. gold depiction of Eliphalet himself heading into the woods with his first barrel, special serial numbers, a medallion in the grip and special packaging. The long guns will have C-grade American walnut stocks with fleur de lis checkering. And if the guns are a little spendy, there are Remington knives, ball caps, T-shirts and other gear, too.

Remington’s Custom Shop has produced four sets of hand-engraved guns by Jesse Kaufman, one of which will be auctioned off at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville, Ky., to benefit NRA-ILA. For more on how you can get in on 200 years of Remington, go to remington.com.

Perusing an expired paper-edition Gun List several years ago, I came across an ad for this old 1880-1881 Colt Single Action Army. Can’t remember what I paid, but at that time, it was too cheap to believe it was still for sale.
