Model 11 Manufacturing Date

Post by DeathMagnetic » Wed Jun 05, 2019 6:12 am

Hello, I recently bought a model 11 shotgun and am trying to research the manufacture date. I couldn’t find it on the website with the webpage provided. After looking through links on the page, it appears to have been manufactured between June 31, 1942 - August 1, 1943 based on other serial numbers I looked at.

If you could assist, I would greatly appreciate it.

Model 11, 12 Gauge semi automatic
Overall length- 42.25”
Left side barrel marked- CY 1 or L then AM with anchor and a unrecognizable symbol
Right side barrel marked- REP 1
Serial number- 484502
Military finish stated on left side or receiver.

Doubt you can get any closer than that. I would think the barrel date code should be AMM not AM?
A = March, MM = 1943 M = 1921

I guess there could have been a 1921 vintage CYL barrel in inventory that got used. Such an early barrel would be just stamped with 12 GA. About 1939/40 they started including the chamber length in the markings --

Looks like the barrel has both on it. So not sure what to say about the barrel.
