Brian when I bought the Model 11 A I thought it was a B until speaking with Dave. The grade E/Expert is the one grade that rarely appears. A E was on display at the Southern but the wood had been poorly refinished and the asking price was very steep. You also come across very few straight grip Traps.

I started my hunting with a plain Jane 16ga model 11 that an uncle gave me.

Remington Arms Co. was on a roll right at the same time as our man Ansley H. Fox was trying to get the A.H. Fox Gun Co. going. Remington's professional shooter William Heer carried the high average for 1906 --

Then for 1907, J.J. Blanks won the GAH with a Remington Autoloading Shotgun --

Fred Harlow did it again in 1908.

A gracious benefactor loaned me a 16 ga. M11 when I was about 11 yrs. old. He had previously loaned me a .410 S X S at age 8, and "swapped it out with me". He owned a plantation that adjoined my Grandad's farm, where my parents and I lived (I still do), and would have numerous dove shoots to which he would invite Grandad and me. I really clicked with that M11 and in a year or so was outshooting most of the grown men on the fields. I can vividly recall the men leaving the field and moving to a shady area where they would sit and watch me shoot.

Though I killed my first quail and dove with the little .410 that M11 made a shooter out of me. I shot it until my 16th birthday, when I received a new 12 ga. from my parents, and returned the M11 to our friend. I remember it, and many of the dove shoots I used it on, with great fondness.

As Bob Hope used to sing, "thanks for the memories".

I was at my little local shop today and they had a 16ga Sportsman there on consignment. Cursory look seemed like real good condition; tag said $900. Don't know anything about the guns so don't know if that's a good or bad price. Not interested myself.

Based on watching GB auctions I’d say $900 is at or slightly above what they’re bringing online .

I wonder if barrels and parts from a browning humback shotgun will fit barrel and other parts from a model 11 Remington....charlie

Generally speaking. No.

There MAY be a few small parts that can interchange. But I cannot say for sure.

Will Gurton thanks for all you help, your knowledge of M 11's is very impressive. Like any gun collection a good mentor and tapping into their knowledge is so important. Still looking for a great early E Expert, early T Trap and an early B.
