Not that I've ever seen. They did have the grip cap and the fuller forearm wood than the "Standard" Grades.

My "Skeet" 20 is only marked on the barrel as a choke marking. The beavertail forearm is the only real identifying feature.

I picked up this Sportsman 20 ga Skeet at the Kittery Trading Post for cheap money earlier this month. I knew little about them but it appealed to me and thought I couldn't get hurt very much for the money. Somebody went to the trouble of making it a straight grip conversion. Not a bad job hut they didn't quite get the attachment to the receiver perfect so I gave it to Brian to make it right. I have no idea if the Cutts is factory or add on, barrel is serial numbered to the gun and marked Skeet. The modified choke threw a 73% pattern of 7/8 oz 8's at 40 yards. The Spreader choke threw a nice even 57% pattern. So far it's cycling flawlessly and with the rings in the light position it's cycling 3/4 ounce loads as well.

Posted pictures of my Premier F grade a few weeks ago under off topics. Barrel is .034 but there is no visible choke marking on the barrel. Nice gun but it has been restocked with a lower grade stock. I am guessing that the stocks cracked on many of these guns. I believe the F grades were stocked with Circassian walnut.
Anyone recommend a place where I can buy a good replacement? A good pantograph stock?

Phil, I think that's the original stock. English Walnut doesn't have the figure that high grade American Black Walnut does.

I know I had a ball shooting 12 and 20 gauge Model 11’s at Rock Mountain this year . I hope to do that again next year .

I’ve seen a few blurbs about Remington once upon a time making what they called “Long Range” barrels for model 11’s and 31’s years ago . I’d be curious to know how much more if any was the constriction on a regular 30 or 32 inch full choke barrel vs one of these Long Range barrels . Until I see proof I’m gonna tend to think it was just a marketing ploy . The following three Mr. Noreen had posted on the Remington Society forum .

I’ve got two 32” and one 30” I think I’ll measure and see how much constriction they have since they’re rollstamped “full” . And maybe someday one or two of the marked Ling Range barrels will be available to measure .

That checkering pattern is what is shown in the early catalogs on the "Tournament" and "Expert" Grades. The "Premier" Grade was shown with a bit fancier pattern. The quality of that wood is about the same as the imported walnut on my Father's 1896 vintage AE-Grade Remington Hammerless Double.
