A “NEW” REMINGTON MODEL 1911 SHOTGUN


One of the members of our church gave me this gun last week. It is a Remington Model 11 12 ga with solid rib modified barrel. The stock was broken in half and I had to replace the mainspring screw, action spring tube, action spring plug and the front bead. I glued the stock and replaced the parts. Numerich had all the parts I needed. They cost a total of $43.00 including shipping. It is interesting that the buttstock is from a Browning A-5. It still has the Browning butt plate. The bluing on the barrel is 85% but the receiver has turned to a Silver color.


As far as I can tell, the gun is functional. It was made in 1913. I was given another Model 11 in February. It is plain barreled and Full choke. It was made in 1918. The 1918 version functions well and I have broken 24/25 with it on a regulation trap range. I hope to take the “new” gun to the range this weekend.


I enjoy restoring these old shotguns. I have also restored a Savage Model 755A 12 ga and a Savage Model 775A 12 ga. All 4 guns were a gift and none of them were functioning when I got them. They are all functional now.

When I was 18 I acquired a Remington model 11 in very good condition from a friend for the measly price of 1, xbox360.

Like a fool I parted with it

Both the Brownings and the Remingtons are well made and well designed shotguns that have a good habit of going "BANG" every time you pull the trigger. Its a darned shame I could never hit the broad side of a barn with them...something about that square-backed receiver throws me off.

Nice job Mr. Doug. I need to get up with you for some advice/help on an unfired CMP Garand in .308 when we both have the time and if you're willing

Me too Vick although with my oddball eyesight that square
back receiver always tossed my head for a loop every time
I shouldered it and I sure can't keep it shouldered all the
time.:lol4:

Nice guns. I have a 20 gauge that looks just like a Browning, if you are not looking for the magazine cut-off switch/lever. I like the Model 11s and 11/48s. Have fun.
