Auto 5 carrier in a model 11?

Postby topdogjosh » Fri Oct 10, 2008 11:06 am

is it possible for me to use an auto 5 carrier in my model 11? The model 11 doesnt have the auto loading and you have to press the bolt release every time you load a shell into the mag. Its kinda a pain, and Id really like to use the gun, and I think I could pick up a carrier for a decent price, so if anyone knows just let me know.........thanks,Josh

A competant gunsmith might be able to retrofit it to the mod 11, but it is not a 1-to-1 replacement.

ok, thats what I was wondering, and thought one of you might know for sure. Didnt want to have to break down both guns and try, only to be disappointed. Looking at it I may be able to notch the carrier on the remington to accept shells without pressing the bolt release. Anywho, thanks for the help and if anyone else has any other insites let me know.


P.S. just wondering why it wont bolt in(diiferent size, placement, what?)
