I also blame you and Frank for me buying the half dozen or so I acquired in the last ten months . Of course none of mine are the beautifully engraved grades .

My Grade 6 Premier is actually the "Remington Autoloading Shotgun", or "Autoloading Gun" (RAG!?), the c. 1909 predecessor to the Remington Model 11, so designated that year. The shorebirds and waterfowl engraved on the sides of the receiver put the hook in me so bad I had to buy it. Being a loyal Browning A-5 fan and former collector helped put me over the edge. Special ordered for a big mahaf in San Antonio, it is the living embodiment of the statement that, "all art is not flat."

Thanks for posting. I started with Model 11s. I've never seen an engraved model in person. Very nice.

Nice lineup!

Is the right one marked as an 11-a? In the original graded lineup the A was unchecked. So that gun would be a later equivalent to an early B. You need to find yourself a nice C now.

The Model 11A "Standard" Grade got checkered wood circa 1928/9 when the Model 11 changed to the cross-bolt safety. Same time as the Model 10 was replaced with the Model 29. The Model 29A "Standard" Grade was introduced with checkered wood. Also, at that time, the Model 17A "Standard" Grade got a checkered stock and slide handle replacing the plain stock and ringed forearm they had since the 1920 introduction.

The Model 11B "Special" Grade came with an imported walnut stock while the A "Standard" Grade had American walnut. About 1936/7 the B went to select American walnut.

Actually, my collection was a bit over $600. The guns were $189 to $215. The 12- and 16-gauges are pre-WW-II solid rib guns and the 20-gauge is a 1948 plain barrel 28-inch modified. I later spent over half the price of the collection for a 26-inch vent rib SKEET barrel for the 20-gauge.
