Ralph, the Remington Repair codes are on the barrel flats as shown in your last posted picture. It's impossible to know what work was done at Remington as there are no records to enlighten us. However, I have my doubts that the customization work on your gun was performed at the factory.

The LK3 stamp indicates a service (3) was performed on it in May (K) of 1942 (L).

And the ANN3 tells us that a service (3) was also performed in March (A) of 1944 (NN).

Thanks John & Dean for the code info. I found the code information as I made it in chapter V, in the Parker Story. There is a lot to read, but it is very interesting. Were there ever guns that were ordered and started the soft build and fitting process, but were never completed because of the 1929 stock market crash. To be assembled/finished later to a higher grade by Remington for another customer? Just a thought, after reading about the large inventory Parker had before the crash and how a lot of the ordered guns, may never have been finished. How long did it take Parker to build a grade B shotgun?
