Remington model 29 Grade?
I have a old remington model 29 pump shotgun patent # 1,579,177-1,660,216 which I assume is a 1929 -early 30's.
The stock has the Montgomery wards rubber "WesternField"bumper attached The gun is in good shape ,no rust ,good wood.. My question is value and why is there no grade no. after the Model 29 stamp? Also i measure the barrel as 30 3/4" Is that a 31" barrel. thank you.

What's the serial number range? If it's early, it could be a Standard Grade before they started marking as to grade...
