    Today I stumbled across a 12 ga. Remington Model 11 mfg'd in 1920. It has a 20 inch barrel, and has serial # 217,XXX. It's in nice shape. I learned that magazine extensions for 870s fit if you add a 1/8 in. spacer. I tried the Scattergun Tech +2 extension from my 870 and it does fit. I'm very happy. I paid $249 plus tax. I might have overpaid a bit, but I wanted it. Anyone have one?

    My grandfather had one, sadly for me it went to another family member. They are good guns and were produced, by one manufacturer or another, until about 20years ago.

    The 11 & A5 are fantastic shotguns. I think they are the 1911s of shotgun world. I was looking around the net and I read somewhere they are still the
    2nd fastest cycling shotgun only behind the new FN.

    Take a look at following link http://www.louderthanwords.us/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8462 here is tactical cool before tactical was around.
    I found a model 11 for $100.00 in a local pawn shop I'm in the process of building one just like the link above.

    I have one of these but mine is the Sportsman model with a little engraving. It belonged to my grandfather and I inherited it. It has taken many a goose and duck that became holiday meals-Bill

    Mine is currently not cycling, probably just needs a good cleaning. I was thinking of turning mine into a tactical gun, but I don't know if I am going to do it or not. Someone turned me onto this guy, he is supposed to make extensionst that are properly spaced for the 11 and A5 as well as the Savage 720, yes, savage made a version of this as well.

    I have southern engineered an A5 synthetic stock set for mine, if I could find a good second barrel I think I would cut it down for my Tactical model so I could turn it back into a bird gun if I wanted to.

    The first shotgun I ever fired was one of these. Remington and Savage both made these I'm told under license from Browning. Great old guns!

    Mine has a similar safety to yours, I have been told that they later went to a standard style Remington crossbolt safety on the rear of the triggerguard.

    That's the early-version safety. I THINK they changed the safeties in the 1920s.

    I would like to find a barrel for the money and tacticalize mine but still be able to switch it all back. The barrels that you find are just about as much as a gun.
