Default RAS Grade 6 Stock

Phil,

If you ever have the stock off for any reason you can confirm if it does or does not match the gun's serial number.

I would bet that you are correct, however, if you decide to part with the existing one just know that it does appear to be a factory Pre-1909 Tournament (D Grade) stock. If I am correct the serial number would be under the 60,xxx mark.

Good luck in finding a donor or having one made,

Will

Expert more fully covers the bottom of the grip.

Default Checkering Pattern

Phil,

Your gun would match Craig's 1910 pattern, not the earlier pattern of two of my guns posted above.

Notice the stock you have now is the pattern prior to Craig's 1910 Tournament, no split in the top section with the additional "wing".

Good Luck,

Will

Thank you Will for this as well as the Pm’s. I hope sometime to find a stock ( not likely ) or have it restocked correctly.

After seeing Dave’s post about the Remington “Long Range” barrels I was curious about the chokes in the three 12 gauge Model 11 barrels in my possession . I’ve got a 30” vent rib barrel that’s on a 1922 gun and serial numbers to that gun , it has 35 thousandths . I’ve got a 32” solid rib barrel that’s on a 1932 gun and serial numbers to it as well , this one has 43 thousandths and finally I have a plain 32” barrel I bought by itself and it measures 40 thousandths . I’m hoping I can run across a Long Range barrel and get a reading from it .

Good Luck Craig,

I have only seen 2 in the years that I have been following them that I thought were 100% authentic from the factory, and have never had one in my hands.
