Customer Question
I have a Remington...

I have a Remington model in a 270 Gibbs, it has a tapered barrel no proof marks other than a W on the bottom of the barrel.

Expert's Assistant: The Gunsmith will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

I can tell this is no the original barrel as the stock has two cut outs where the barrel used to rest.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Gunsmith should be aware of?

I believe it maybe a 1955 model. I have not be able to find another type rifle in a 270 Gibbs

This is the original but has been reworked, it a older model and that man who worked for Remington at the time was a man named Gibbs. Is the one of his he modified.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 6 months ago

What model of Remington do you have there? I'm not sure that I understand what you are asking...

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Remington 721
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 6 months ago

Ok, so are you asking if the rifle you have was owned by Rocky Gibbs?

Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 6 months ago

Well, that would really be impossible to say with any certainty. You could try to contact the Cody Museum to see if they have a record of that model being sold to Gibbs, but that is a slim chance.

From what I read he help Remington design the 721
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 6 months ago

Well, may be true, but there aren't really any public records of who owned what gun.

That's true, I'll contact the Cody people, thank you.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 6 months ago

My pleasure! They often have records or info that others don't

Best of luck to you!
