Model 31 was made from 1931 until 1949. It was replaced by the M870 due to the high cost of building a hand fitted solid steel gun. It is considered one of the best and smoothest pumps ever made.
The Model 31 was Remington's first side ejecting pump-action shotgun that competed with the Winchester Model 1912 for the American sporting arms market.It superseded the John Pedersen-designed Model 10 and Model 17 and was replaced by the less expensive Remington 870.
Many shotgun connoisseurs consider the Model 31 to be the plus ultra of pump shotguns with its "ball-bearing" slide action.
The Model 31 was later used as a basis for the modernized and simplified Mossberg 500, 590, 835 and Maverick 88 shotguns. The biggest differences being the use of aluminum alloy receivers in most variants.
