Need Information on Old Remington .22 Pump, Oct. Barrel

Trying to find information on this Remington .22 pump rifle, Pedersen Patent. Letters RW above the serial No. 181xx on the bottom of the frame. I think it might be a Model 12 C . Any information anyone can provide would be appreciated

Sort of a vague request. What sort of info would you like about it?

If you purchase one check the quality of the barrel. These guns are going on around 100 years old.

If you can find a good one, they are neat old guns...

I'd like to confirm that it is a Model 12C and when it might have been made. Also, what its value might be.

The Model 12 actually came in 12A, 12B, 12C models. The Model 12A had a round barrel, while B & C had octagonal barrels. The Model 12B was a short barrel rifle.
This firearm was introduced in 1909 and the last one, a model 12C was produced in 1929.
Actually, Remington made the Model 12 until 1936 after which it was replaced by the Model 121.
from another forum. It looks like a Model 12C from somewhere between 1929 and 1936. As to the value I have no idea.

Yes your rifle is a model 12 C. One of the finest pump guns ever. Early models did not have the model number stamped on them.

The RW above the serial number is a date code remington used to use.
First letter is the month:
BLACKPOWDERX- each letter is a month. Yours would be an R denoting November.

The 2nd letter is a year, W stands for 1929 in this case. So you have a model 12 manufactured in November of 1929.

Here is a link with more detail and a list of years:
