The 11F 12 we had at the shop for awhile was a straight grip .

Default No.3 Grade "C" Trap Gun

Craig,

High condition examples of the Trap Gun are pretty rare.

I have seen very few in my searching over the years that are truly original and have great condition.

Nature of the beast I guess, made for high volume repetitive game like Trap.

Good luck but I don't have one either so you or I may only hear the after story! Lol

Will

I have had a couple C grades and both were well used. Gave one away to a local guy who loves to hunt but only had a single barrel 12. The other one with a polychoke I kept. I shoot it as well as any of my other guns with the exception of maybe my Remington 32's. have another beat up D grade I am selling locally thru my FFL. Stock is a little low for me on that one. Pretty beat up and not worth very much so it is going cheap. The C grade I have left has nice wood and great fun to shoot. Think I only paid a little over 300 for it. I actually like the old style safety too. Great guns those 11's.

When I started buying graded model 11s the first one I picked up was a C grade trap. It was in great shape. And was a bit of an odd one in that it had a 26” barrel. Still full choke.

From the 1905 introduction into the late 1920s the only barrel lengths offered were 26- and 28-inch. The 28-inch was standard with the option of 26-inch. From the 1923 Remington Arms Co., Inc. --

About the same time Remington Arms Co., Inc. revised the Model 11 to a cross-bolt safety 1928/9 they added the 30- and 32-inch barrels. From the 1929 catalog over stamped with the 1930 introduction of the 20-gauge Model 11.

Default RAS No.3 Grade

I have one that is in fair used condition, a 99,xxx serial number gun with the earliest ventilated rib barrel that I have ever confirmed, BUT it has a slight ring bulge at the choke.

So I figure steel shot can't hurt it and tripled on Blue Wing Teal it's first time out!

Just cant beat a gun that points itself!!

Good luck all with your Double and Non-Double persuits.

I don't have any engraved Model 11s, but I do have a minty 20 gauge Skeet with beavertail forend and vent rib and a round top conversion 20 gauge that I believe was done at Abercrombie and Fitch. It is one of only two round top conversions I have ever seen. I would like to learn more about them.

The Grade 6 I pictured in an earlier post is a vent rib gun, SN 71XXX.
