Back in the late 1970s/early 1980s I would drop off early Model 3200s with the gate guard at Ilion on Monday morning after a race weekend at Watkins Glen and about six weeks later they would arrive at my door in a plain green cardboard box with an address label with my address and an Ilion, New York return address but no mention of Remington anywhere. All the updates done and looking new. They even replaced cracked forearm wood on one with no charge.

They are all favorites! I cant get enough of these well made examples of a bygone era. I hope the younger generation picks up on this genre and keeps them alive. Pictured from top are boxed Philly 16, Utica 20 with Philly features, Philly ejector 16, Philly brush 16 and a Philly 12 with hang tag and Tryon Co. receipt for gun, shells and canvas case.

The only thing that would be a Tryon receipt would be a Tom Gibbons receipt.
