Dating a remington model 700
After less than 24 hrs, I've already found the "extra" info to help me beyond the the "black powder" and barrel code info.

The connector floats on top of the trigger body inside of the gun, but is not physically bound to the trigger in any way other than tension from a spring.
When the trigger is pulled, the connecter is pushed forward by the trigger, allowing the sear to fall and fire the rifle. The proper position of the connector under the sear is an overlap of only 25/1000ths of an inch, but because the connector is not bound to the trigger, the connector separates from the trigger body when the rifle is fired and creates a gap between the two parts. Any dirt, debris or manufacturing scrap can then become lodged in the space created between the connector and the trigger, preventing the connector from returning to its original position. Remington’s defective fire control could have been redesigned to eliminate the harm or danger very inexpensively.

It also came with a nice leather sling in quick-detachable swivels. The new stock was also clad in what Remington advertisements described as the “RKW Bowling Pin Finish” and since Du Pont had actually developed it as a near indestructible finish for use on bowling pins, it lived up to its name. soon after it came out in 1962 and not once during 50 years of hunting has it lost zero. Remington took care of that detail in 1968 by increasing shroud length by about 0.265 inches.
The ADL had a blind magazine while the more expensive BDL had a hinged floorplate, black grip cap and forearm tip and more checkering coverage. From a distance it looked like any other checkering applied in an attractive fleur-de-lis pattern, but closer examination revealed each tiny diamond pointing inward—rather than outward as is the case for cut checkering. Since the end of its cocking piece protruded from the bolt shroud when the firing pin was in its forward position, the Model 700 failed that test.
Remington 700 Bolt-Action Rifles Remington’s Defective Trigger System A Historical Summary Extensive Claims and Litigation History 1.
Remington has been aware that its bolt-action rifles will sometimes fire absent a trigger pull. To date, Remington has received thousands of customer complaints of unintended discharge for the Model 700 and 710 alone.
Over 100 injured individuals have sued Remington over the same defective design.
Remington and its insurers have paid to settle most of the claims rather than admit the defect and pay the cost of a recall and refit thereby leaving millions of persons at risk of their lives and those of their family and friends.
