Re: Remington Model 10

Ordnance Barrels on Model 10's are as scarce as Damascus on a '97.

Even less common on a Remington Autoloader.

Re: FE Trap restoration

Wonderful gun Dave!

Mike I completely forgot about the spur.

That makes things a little more interesting for sure.

Not sure how I would approach but I bet it would be expensive since most of my cranky nuances are!

Let us know what you decide.

Re: FE Trap restoration

Mike,

I have used original Noshoc's with good success for look and pliability.

The new Silver's to my eye look too, "Top Heavy", too much pad to thickness of baseplate.

The older Griffen & Howe solid pads were a little better but are hard to find.

Re: manufacture date of model 11

Bearkat, Model 11's have 3 different stock types. The Pre 180,000 SN guns are Type 1's the have different inletting as the tangs were shorter and the radius more open. You will not find finished stocks from the stock maker/reproducers only semi-inletted and un-finished. Your best bet is to keep an e...

Re: Pre Model 11 Buttplate

Hoss, Actually that one would predate your gun. Yours would be exactly the same but have ARMS CO in the lower banner instead of Automatic. NC Ordnance makes both types Bill is very easy to deal with. Check his website just make sure the dimensions match as they put that same type plate on a few diff...

Re: H.D. Gibbs and his Remington Pump

Thanks Drew.

Sorry I've been off line a while.

I'll refresh the memory banks.

For some reason, probably my slow antiquated computer, when I try to use the LA site the Adobe file never fully loads and stays blurred with the "spinning wheel of death"! Lol

Re: "Silent Billy" Herr and his Remington double

Thanks Drew for all the wonderful history. H.D.

He was part of the infamous "Gin Squad" that Nash Buckingham shot with and wrote about under a psyd...

Re: Pigeon Gun ? or Trap Gun ?

The 1897 Hartley and Graham catalogue "muddies" the water for me a little on this topic. If you read the footnote on the right hand page this, to me anyway, suggests that at this point in history any straight gripped gun was a Pigeon type gun. This would be as opposed to a Pigeon Gun (Grade) which D...

Re: Model 11 roll engraving

David, I believe the gun you are referring to is the .410 with "Enhanced Engraving" which was produced across a few lines of Remington Firearms, but the pattern for the .410 was unique. I believe these guns were all Laser Engraved. Do a search on Remington 1100, 11/87, 870, 7400 Enhanced Engraving a...

Mpaurus,

Is the top tang stamped Remington and the bottom tang marked Remington UMC in a circle?

Re: Oddball Remington Auto Shotgun

The original Remington stock would be serialized in the bottom tang slot but that is it. If you look at the replacement stock suppliers sites they outline the different Series of stocks for the Model 11 and at least one of them I remember gave the bottom tang length dimension the would fit each seri...

Re: Oddball Remington Auto Shotgun

Does the trigger group have a slot in it for a push safety just ahead of the trigger?

If so the re-machined the trigger group to accept the later behind the trigger safety and used a new style trigger.

Frankenstein! Lol

That would put it a Series 1 replacement stock.

Re: Oddball Remington Auto Shotgun

Yes much later barrel.

If you take the stock off you can find the serial number of the trigger group stamped on it.

That would dictate what series replacement stock you would have but I believe it would be a Series 3 stock.

They are available from a few stock companies.

Good Luck,

Will
