I picked up a Expert grade made the last year for the Model 11, July 1948. 30" F vent rib, 14 3/4" LOD fantastic engraving especially the dogs. That fills a slot my collection, A, D, E, and F in both 12 and 20ga. Just need to find a good B and Trap. Not interested in the Riot.

Craig I have not seen a 16ga D or above. My 20ga F is the only small bore graded D or above I have seen, I'm sure they were made but seem to be uncommon.

Dave I was trying to wade thru the REM Society forum and ran across something you’d posted which I had no idea was factory done ! Cutts yes but wasn’t aware they’d ever put those bastard poly chokes on at the factory .

Remington factory Poly-Chokes were milled integral with the barrels, just like their ribs. Condon had this Model 11 20-gauge a while back --

Here is one on a Model 31 12-gauge --

This is the only engraved 16-gauge I've saved pictures of and it has replacement wood.

If one wants to really pic nits, cross the i's and dot the t's, Remington only catalogued The Sportsman as a "Skeet Gun", but one could get a SKEET choke barrel for a Model 11.

I wonder if those Sportsman that left the factory as so called "skeet guns" were marked skeet anywhere besides on the barrel ?
