Pawnshop Remington 24

Hi guys, I was in a pawn shop today intending to buy an old Mossberg 152and found it had been bought, Well I came across a Remington model 24, they wanted $150 but took $125. I had to have it, it is the coolest little .22 I have ever seen, bottom eject, loads through the butt, etc. I know next to nothing about this little rifle, however, other than what I could find by doing a search on here. Can anyone tell me how to take the trigger group out or does anyone know where I can find out an approximate date of manufacture? Serial #371xx. The barell markings are:

Remington Arms Company, Inc. Successor to the
Remington Arms, U.M.C. Co, Inc. Remington Ilian WKS
Ilian, New York, U.S.A. Browning's Patent Oct 24 1916

Remington trademark

.22 Long Rifle-Lesmoke or Smokeless-Greased

It is not in too bad of shape, most of the receiver's bluing is worn away, but the barell has most of it left. The bore is good, clean, crisp rifling. The stock and forend are in excellent shape, 1 tiny little indentation on the wrist of the buttstock, 1 little scratch near the butt plate. The barell does seem to have an extrat hole though, right behind the rear sight, between it and the barell nut. The only rust anywhere is some old fingerprints that I am working on buffing out. How did I do y'all?

Ok, I just got done fiddling around with it and found out how to take it down, the barell and trigger group, so I'm good there. Very cool considering I didn't know it was a takedown until my search on here. I would still like to know if anyone has any info as to a date and I would like to find an owner's manual somewhere, I found nothing on the Remington web site other than grades that were available and what-not. By the way, how can I tell what grade mine is?

There is more on Remington's than this page, also the Remington society for collectors. The dates are codes stamped on the barrel. Numrich or Steve's pages may have a schematic.

Dates,
