Default One more for good measure!

Last one for the weekend.

From Leap Day, 1908 "American Field" magazine.

This is a testament to John Browning's design and function.

Double-gun reliability!

Well not a Remington Model 11 but I won a Pre War Browning A-5 standardweight 16 gauge A-5 with a 28" plain full choke barrel for use at the Koneski Extraveganza next year !

I'm thinking it might be nice to have two or three classes by gauge perhaps

The gun held by Tom Marshall is probably his Cashmore.

Craig on page 163 it talks about a Model 3200 "One of a Thousand" Remington gave Catfish Hunter for doing some Advertising for them after hitting it big in New York.

Sorry to sidetrack your post Craig!

Bought a Remington Model 11 today it’s 12 gauge . By the serial number according to my Remington buddy it was made in the 20’s . Gun has a 30” full choke vent rib barrel . I kinda doubt if the ribs original but who knows .

Only plain barrels were offered for the Remington Autoloading Shotgun in the 1905-06, both 1906 and the 1907 Remington Arms Co. catalogs. In the 1908 Remington Arms Co. the option of a solid rib for a list price of $7 extra was introduced. In the 1910 catalog the price of the solid rib was dropped to a list price of $6.75 and a ventilated rib was introduced for a list price of $13 extra.

I have never seen a vent rib with the wide spacing of the rib supports shown in the 1910 catalog.

By the 1911-1912 Remington Arms - Union Metallic Cartridge Co. catalog in which they began calling this John M. Browning designed gun the Model No. 11, the rib supports are shown much closer together.

That is how they remained for the rest of production. Here in the 1923 Remington Arms Co., Inc, catalog.

Default Early Vent Rib

"I have never seen a vent rib with the wide spacing of the rib supports shown in the 1910 catalog." - Dave Noreen

Great eye for detail Dave, I had never picked up on that though I have looked at it many times.

I have the earliest Vent Rib that I have run across on a RAS No. 3 (Trap Grade) SN 99,258 which puts it at the end of 1910 production by Jim Tipton's tabulations.

It has the same alternating cuts side to side as the later guns. It may have been there earliest attempts at the vent that did not have the alternating more supported milling.

Probably didn't take long for one to fall in a duck blind somewhere and break a section out like Vic Render's 31!

Or it could have been artistic license to highlight the ventilation early on by some slick Remington Advertising Manager! Lol

Back on Task CL!
