Have a box of different parts from antique guns and am trying to figure out what some of them are or what they came off of. The first one I think is a complete Remington trigger assembly, but don't know how to date it or if it was rifle or shotgun. It has a serial but never figured it out. I am new to this have spent countless hours researching with little success.
Wasn't sure if I should post one at a time or multiple, so here's one for now. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

It,s definitely Remington,if it wasn,t marked the safety button is unique to Remington.Based on the second picture I,m going to say it,s from a Remington Takedown 22 pump,I don,t recall the model number.Just a guess mind you,I could be wrong. it,s a starting point.Bring on the rest.

I'm pretty sure it's from a Remington Model 12.

First .22LR I ever shot (Grandpa's) and one I still own.

OK,here goes,for what it,s worth.In the 4th pic the round stepped item looks like the end that goes on a magazine spring for a shotgun,possibly a Winchester model 12 pump.Likewise the round piece with the screw slot,from the magazine tube on a model 12.Of the rear sights in the second pic best I can do is the two middle ones are what were known as buckhorn style,used on many of the early rifles,Winchester,Marlin,etc. Lever actions.The little stepped item is a sight elevator.The sight on the right may be a Marble,s. Of the hammers in the 7th pic,the one with the offset ear may be from a Remington Rolling Block rifle.I,m going to guess the sling swivel is from an enfield. the oblong things are barrel bands,I just don,t know from what.That,s all I got,for what it,s worth.There,s guys here who know a lot more than me,maybe one of them will chime in.Hope this can at least point you in the right direction. That,s a neat little collection of parts. You might try searching parts for old rifles,Winchester,Marlin,Sharps,Remington,Gun Parts Corporation has a lot of cutaway diagrams of these naming the parts.

Can't thank you enough for taking the time to walk thru all that and giving me some very helpful info. I have other real old parts and complete guns that were much easier looking up, but these individual parts were another story. Thanks again!

You,re most welcome,I like to do that,for myself as well as the help it brings others.Keeps the cobwebs cleared out of the old swiss cheese head.If I think of any thing to add,I,ll do it.Even if I can,t ID the exact part it,ll give you a good start on your own research.

The sling swivel marked "R" in from a Remington 1903A3, the rear sight patented in 1901 is the same one I have on my Winchester model 1906 22 caliber rifle. It may have been used on other guns too.
