Anyone know? I couldn't find on the net. I asked some guys at Remington once and they didn't know either.
UPDATE: Perhaps 1976? See below...
I don't know an exact date, but I've seen them since the mid-1980's, at least.
From my research, it appears it was introduced in 1976. The first reference I find mentioning it is this 1976 LE Products supplement. The stock first appeared on film the same year in The Enforcer starring Clint Eastwood. It is not in the 1975 catalog (which mentions other Police models), although it's not in the 1976 catalog either, so I cannot confirm there wasn't an earlier LE supplement. A guy here says he bought one in 1976, but no mention if that was the debut year.
Sorry to the OP that I don't have anything more useful to add but,
KitBuilder, that's some pretty interesting stuff you came up with there.
Clearly, your resources are far more interesting than mine!
Well thank you, sir, but unfortunately (or not ) my resource is just Google! lol
I remembered IMFDB always lists years and, sure enough, they happened to have a section for this configuration...
