Just picked up a Remington Model 11F, I believe Runge engraved. It has a second 32 inch barrel. Gun is early 1930's

Congrats Craig on a fine gun. The sighting plane on a 32" barrel on a M11 is longer than a 34" double gun. I have a M11 20ga with 32" barrel and I compared it next to my 34" Parker. Looking forward seeing some pics of harvested ducks with your new Remington.

That is a beautiful gun Craig. Remington could really make some fantastic guns when they wanted to.

I have some early Ulrich engraved Model 12 Pigeon Grades and the Remingtons have it all over the Winchesters in the engraving department, although the Ulrich guns are nicer than the later Kusmit examples. I cowrote an article for the first quarter 2015 Remington Society Journal about my Model 10F owned previously by John Phillip Sousa. Oddly, the article included some nice pictures, unusual for me. The engraving is a similar pattern to the 11Fs pictured by Kevin and Craig. I also have a 10E that is every bit as nice as the 10F and with way better wood. Both are 32", 26" two barrel sets. Another of my favorite non SxSs is John Phillip Sousa's Lindner Daly Sextuple trap I wrote about in Double Gun Journal Summer 2013, also with pictures. Who said Murphy never posts pictures? I also love my Model 11 and Browning squarebacks, but I don't have any engraved examples, but I'm looking. My favorite Model 11 is a rare mint 20 gauge Skeet with factory beavertail. Another Model 11 20 is a round top conversion done in the forties, probably by Griffin and Howe. I've only seen one other, but it had a cracked receiver so I lost interest. It was a real tragedy because it was an F Grade. Today, I would rescue that gun, have it welded and reengraved.

My favorite Browning non SxS is my early thirties Auto-5 with a vintage Bert Parsons nine shot magazine which extends about half way up the polished aluminum Cutts Compensator with matching aluminum spreader tube. This is just the gun for a classic Southern quail hunt.

Speaking of Runge engraved Remingtons, What is up with the "Runge engraved Model 17F" I mentioned earlier, Lot #2287, that is in the upcoming Poulin auction? The Model 17 last appeared in the 1932 Remington catalog, when Bob Runge was sweeping floors at Meriden.

When serial number 15213 was made, Bob Runge was likely still in short pants.
