    Hello. I have inherited a gun from my Grandfather that I can't find any information on, not even at the Remington web site. The gun is a model 24 .22 long caliber rifle. It holds multiple bullets by inserting them through a slot on the side of the stock after sliding a retainer out the butt of the gun. Any information or directions to where I can get information would be greatly appreciated. I have figured out how to load the gun but just don't know enough to shoot it. Some information I have found is that gun went out of production in 1935. About 115000 were made.
    Thank You, Silas

    Thank You Jerry, NRAJOE and DANA(ALL CAPS FOR DANA TO SEE)
    JERRY, IT'S A MODEL 24 WITH ONE OTHER NUMBER I ASSUME TO BE THE SERIAL NUMBER. NRAJOE ADDED THE INFO I FOUND AT THE REMINGTON WEB SITE. MY GUN HAS NO DESIGNATION AS TO WHICH GRADE IT IS, HOWEVER I WILL TAKE IT OUTSIDE A LOOK IT OVER IN BETTER LIGHT.
    DANA, IT IS A NEAT LOOKING GUN. DUE TO SIZE I THOUGHT IT WAS A KIDS GUN BUT AFTER PLAYING WITH FOR AWHILE FOUND IT TO FIT ME OK(I'M 6'1" WITH LONG ARMS) HOW DO I LOAD AND FIRE THE GUN?

    YOU LOAD THROUGH THE HOLE IN THE STOCK WITH THE CHARGER OPENED AND OUT OF THE WAY SO THE SHELLS WILL SLIDE IN. CLOSE AND LOCK THE CHARGER. THE BOLT HAS A KNERLED PROTUSION WHICH YOU PULL TO THE REAR AND WHEN THE BOLT COMES FORWARD IT LOADS A SHELL IN THE CHAMBER. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE ACTION EVERYTHING IS UPSIDE DOWN. I.E. THE SHELLS COME DOWN FROM THE MAG WITH THE BOLT ON THE BOTTOM INSTAD OF BEING NORMALY ON TOP.

    STILL A INTERESTING BROWNING DESIGN

    remington model 24

    I just rebuilt my model 24. The one I bought was a little rough and I reblued it, refinished the stock, and polished the bottom slide with jewelers rouge. Looks beautiful. Now the shooting, they are great little shooters but accuracy is greatly affected by the adjustment ring where the barrell meets the action. The proper adjustment makes all the difference in accuracy. I have the belgium browning models and like them equally, maybe even favor the remington a little more, but I'm always for the plain janes.

    Hey Silas...The shooter you have is a John Browning design similar to the Brwoning semi auto take down now being offered by Browning. To load it you look at the butt of the rifle, there is a knob that you twist and pull....now look 1/2 way up the right side of the stock. Pull the plunger out til it exposes the hole...insert ammo nose 1st into the loading ramp til the shells show. Replace plunger back into the butt and turn til it locks. Next turn rifle upside down and ear back the bolt, take the safety off and your ready to rock and roll. One word of caution though, If you shoot from the front seat of your truck as I do sometimes in the summer, make sure if your wearing cutoffs to take care and watch where the hulls fall....them 'lil devils called empty hulls fresh out of the shooter can "scald" a whelp on bare flesh.....here's hopin' you enjoy shooting yours as much as i do mine....TMBJAK

    Old remington is made on Browning patent

    My Grandfather also had one of these guns. The gun was made in Belguium by Remington on a Browning Patent. You can probably find more info on the browning website. They have a list of serial #'s that can help you date the gun. This model was introduced by Browning in the US in 1977. I brought one of the new issues in 1977, it's a great little gun, just slightly smaller than the Remington my Grandaddy had. Both are very reliable guns to this day.
    Good luck!

    If anyone is interested I do have the serial # list w/ dates, however most model 24's are date stamped which they started to do in 1922 however they did not start production in 1922 like the Remington site says but in 1919 but less then 100 made in those three years. (also they ended in 1938 not 1935 with 5 made in 1936,37,38 The date stamp is the blackpowderx code which can be found on the Remington Society collectors website here:

    I have a model 24 Gallery in 22 short, complete with barrel ring for attaching the chain that secured it to the counter at a shooting gallery. It was in rough shape with a name scratched into the receiver and a bit of rust. It was in great mechanical shape but not a collectable. I had the receiver cleaned up and had it hard chromed. It is a really neat looking and usefull gun now.

    As mentioned in another post, the 22 short chambering of this gun and the Browning version both function well with CCI and other CB shorts.

    I don't know where Lindarella2u got the information but browning introduced the little semi-auto 22 in 1956 not 1977.

    I have a model 24 autoload that my dad bought at 16 years old in 1930. It is in excellant shape. I was curious about what the price on E-bay was for this particular rifle.

    Hi Silas, I have a pdf copy of the Remington Model 24 Manual. If you'd like a copy as well send me a PM or email and I'll send it to you.

    I think you're really going to like granpappy's old .22; they are real nice shooters if you can get the barrel to lock down tight on the receiver.

    need an extractor mechanism!

    I love this gun, it has literally had thousands of rounds run through it by my aunts and my father as children. I have put a ton of rounds through it myself. I managed to loose the extractor mechanism and the extractor spring and am in need of replacements. The typical location for gun parts out of NY does not have them in stock. Does anyone have one they would be willing to sell, or know were I can locate one? Any help would be appreciated.
