Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are two-piece checkered walnut with beavertail forend, straight comb, pistol grip with darker colored checkered faux-wood plastic cap, and ventilated brown rubber recoil pad. The forend has a light compression at the front-right and another at the rear-left, otherwise there are only light handling marks. There are no chips or cracks. The checkering is mostly sharp and highly defined. The LOP measures 14″ from the front of the trigger to the back of the recoil pad. The pad has light wear at the heel and toe and is still supple, in about Very Good-Fine condition. The drop at comb is about 1 7/16″, drop at heel is about 2″. The cast is neutral. Overall, the stocks are in about Fine-Excellent condition.
Type of Finish: Blue
Finish Originality: Original
Bore Condition: The bores are bright. There is no erosion.
Overall Condition: This shotgun retains about 97% of its metal finish. The finish is lightly thinning at the edges of the rib, the edges of the trigger guard and some corners. The barrels have a few scattered light marks, a light scuff on the left of the top barrel under the 5th rib pylon from the front and light wear from the forend, concealed when assembled. The receiver has only a few scattered light marks. The lever and safety have light handling wear. The pin heads are unmarred. The markings are clear. Overall, this shotgun rates in about Fine-plus condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The barrels lock up to the receiver with no play. The ejectors throw shells energetically. The trigger is mechanically operated. The safety selector is a switch behind the lever, right for top-barrel first, left for bottom and the center position is safe. We have not fired this shotgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.
Our Assessment: This is an exceptionally nice shotgun and one of the few over-under shotgun models ever produced by Remington. The design is essentially the same as the Krieghoff model 32 and the fit and finish isn’t far off from a Krieghoff, either. This shotgun is in about Fine-plus condition with 97% of its original finish remaining, great bores, strong mechanics and some good-looking wood. With its 3″ chambers, 30″ barrels choked Full over Full and selective triggers, this should make one heck of a hunting gun. That said, given that there were fewer than 1,000 3200 Magnums produced and the high condition of this example, it may also take a place in a Remington collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
