Remington 3200

The Remington Model 3200 shotgun was introduced in 1973. It generally resembles the Model 32. an earlier Remington over-under made from 1932 until 1942. Both models have a separated barrel construction and arc bolted by a sliding top lock.

Offered in 12-ga. only, the Model 3200 has a mechanically operated single trigger and selective ejectors. The thumb operated tang safety is pivoted from side to side rather than the more usual back and forth sliding movement. Swinging it left or right selects which barrel is fired first. The barrels are assembled to a monobloc which has large lugs on each side. These lugs engage shoulders in the frame to prevent the thrust of recoil from being transmitted to the hinge pin. In guns of early production the tang was assembled to the frame by a pin. and the front and rear fore-end screws were identical. These and other details have been modified to the construction shown here.

The Model 3200 has been made in a number of special editions as well as the regular Field. Trap and Skeet versions. Its very fast lock time of around 1.6 miliseconds makes it popular among clay target shooters.
