Smoke color, Huntsville marked H025XXXR51.  Remington says June of 2018.

Interestingly enough, most all of the Smokies are Huntsville frames and have serials starting in the 25xxx block. I wonder if any Charlotte Smokies will surface, or if they are all Huntsville frames.

I have compiled a spreadsheet of all the known serial numbers and it does seem that the Smokies are all Huntsville with a range of H023 - H025.  I haven't seen any in the H026 but I have seen one in the H027.  I sent an email to Remington requesting some more information but haven't heard back yet.

These are the serial number ranges that I have surmised so far.  Some of it is an educated guess deduced from the data collected so far and needs refinement.  If you have information that is contrary to this, please let me know so I can update.

  • 0000501R51 - 0001299R51 = Remington R51 initial release for shows and T&E - January 2014.  These handguns appear to have a different or thinner finish on the slide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_2nTQLOBiE
  • 0001300R51 - 0007299R51 = Gen 1 consumer release before recall of July 25, 2014.  These handguns and all subsequent have the black FNC finished slide.  Some of these frames are reused for Gen 2 rebuilds.
  • 0007300R51 - 0036999R51 = Gen 2 release still marked Charlotte starting June 23, 2016 to original Gen 1 owners.  Retail roll-out resumes August 12, 2016.
  • H000001R51 - H022999R51 = Gen 2 marked Huntsville starting January 2017?
  • H023000R51 - H027999R51 = Gen 2 in the "Smoke" two-tone color scheme starting January 2018?

R51Fan,
     My serial number is H023102R51 on my Smokey!   I see no reason to hide the last
three numbers,   If my gun gets stolen, I will still  have the number to give the
police.

There have been instances of fraudulent sellers on gun auction sites using serial numbers and photos harvested from sites such as this.  I doubt that it is common but it has happened and that would be one reason to not share the complete serial number.

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk
            Some FFl`s such as Buds online gun shop when they have multiple items offer you your choice by choosing serial #s
