Remington model 11

Postby brock2013 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 8:02 am

I'm am about to trade for a model 11 12ga and was wondering how good they were? I searched and saw a few post but wanted to post it also. I plan on shooting steel thru it even though I know it's not recommended but I'm not gonna use it alot just every now and then. Does Anyone else use one of these?

The model 11 was last made in 1947. It is based on the A5, but parts interchange is not so good.

They are sound fouling pieces. Only available in 2 3/4 chamber.

While it is not recommended to shoot steel through these barrels, you may get away with it as long as the choke is no tighter than modified and the shots sizes are no larger than size 2.

May get away with it means that hopefully the barrel won't bulge on you down by the choke.

I have a really old one with the weird little safety inside the trigger guard that they stopped making in 1927. Mine's a 2 3/4" 12ga. and it works every time. It has a fixed full choke barrel and shoots steel without any problem. In fact, other than a few target loads now and then, steel is the only thing I have shot through it. To be honest, I don't really use it that much any more, but I used to hunt with it fairly often, and I don't think it ever malfunctioned.

I'm not sure what choke it has but I won't shoot anything bigger than 4 in it anyways

The steel used to make barrels isn't the same as today. It will wear quicker and in a tighter choke is taking the chance of bulging your barrel because the shot is harder than the barrel.

If it is a full choke if you shoot much steel in it you will either pound the choke out of it, or possibly ring bulge the barrel. I only owned one Model 11 and that was years ago. I hated shooting heavy loads in it. It clanked, twisted, and bucked like a thrashing machine.

I was shooting old time lead 2 3/4" short Magnums. Try a lead Turkey load. No little girl will like it.

I have a hunting pard that shot a Ithaca model 37 for 15 seasons before switching to a newer gun. That Ithaca had a fixed full choke barrel and Mike shot mainly 2 3/4" BBs through it. I measured the bore and could see no sign of change to the built in choke. It was still .695 measured. If it were me, I would have limited its use to no larger than #2s.
