    Picked up a Etchen Remington Model 31TC with a Etchen style stock MC, and pistol grip . Gun was made June 1945. Pistol cap is brown plastic, which might be bakealight.

    Just wondering who made these stock or was it an option from REMINGTON.

    Gun has a few issues, been rebuled, some pitting on barrel, mechanical gun sound, woods great, had BAD UGLY recoil pad. Barrel has .035, no issues inside the barrel.

    Before you asked NO

    I bought mine in 1976, Ser. 110XXX ( I think )
    Mine had a straight stock. I can't remember whether it was Fred or Rudy on the stock.
    Pictures would help.

    Regards.....Gerald

    No matter what the condition, I love it when I see these old guns being rescued.

    I have a few that were probably destined for the scrap pile, but with a little TLC, I can proudly display them for people to see.

    Thanks for the thread, and I always appreciate pictures.

    Love those Model 31's. Such class. I remember my true first trap gun. A Model 870TC. It had the most incredible wood, hand checkered, and dark burly walnut. Owned/shot it for 5 or 6 years back in the 70's. (miss those times)

    Most other shooters on the line, owned incredible Model 12's. I could never afford a M12 back then.

    Remington didn't skimp on their trap wood in the late 60's early 70's -- wore out my first 1100 trap and traded it --should have keep the wood -- Have yet to see one as nice as that one was!
