1100 versus 11-87

I have a friend looking to buy a Remington auto-loading shotgun. He asked me which is better the M-1100 or M-11-87, or what is the difference between them. Being a collector not a shooter, I couldn't answer him. I assume parts are readily available for both. Will 11-87 barrels interchange with the 1...

Re: picture test

I'm sure he is talking about the background in your second photo.
Very nice '75 however.

Re: Colt 1914 Government Model .45 ACP British/Canadian shipped to Remington/UMCMarkings

Every thing stated is very interesting, but doesn't explain why it was first sent to Remington-UMC before it's
world travels. Might I suggest that it was sent to UMC for cartridge development and function.
Then forwarded to either Colt or directly to Canada, Just my guess?

Re: Remington "American Browning"

Researcher,
I know the "2" stamp is for a replacement Barrel and assumed it was done by Remington. Your explanation
makes sense. Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Remington "American Browning"

I don't know if this will be helpful, but I have an American "Browning 3 shot" (marked on the fore end). It's a 20 ga. S N - C8693. However, it has a Remington vent rib barrel. It is date coded DMM-2= 8/43, which indicates it is a factory replacement. So not much help in dating it. It also has a poo...

Re: Remington Kleanbore UMC 22LR 475 Rnd Tin

Ward's Collectables just had an auction that included over 150 Remington 22 boxes and tins.
This might help identify and value yours.

Re: Old 700 Carbine?

I have never seen or heared of a 700 with an 18 " barrel, other than yours.
The Blue Book lists 700 Carbines as being made with 20" barrels in 1962 & '63.
I would say it's a custom barrel, done by Remington or someone else.
Are there more than one set of date codes on the barrel?

Tom,
It's a very nice piece of wood. Are there any markings on the Butt plate or Grip cap?

Re: Remington Mod.11 question

I agree with Researcher. It's probably a training shotgun. If it was a combat shotgun it would have a shorter barrel.Is the barrel serial numbered to the receiver?

Re: Ken Blauch has died!

While I never met Ken in person, I talked to him several times on the phone. He was always willing to share his vast knowledge of Remington CF Pump rifles. I have to say The Society has lost a valuable resource.
My condolences to his family and friends. RIP Ken!

Re: #2 rolling Case help ID.

I can't help identify the case. My best guess is, it's custom made, and could have been done by anybody with wood working experience.

Re: Grandpa's shotgun

In order to answer your question, we need information as to what kind it is.
Single or double barrel. If single, is it a pump or semi-auto?
Posting a photo would be the best, along with the serial number.

Re: New Member from AZ

Don, I'm positive this is a cut down Remington Carbine not done by the factory. Someone heated the tangs and bent them for a pistol grip. Then made the grips and fore end. The barrel may be the cut original or a replacement. What is the caliber? I had a Model #4 Rolling Block that was modified the s...

Re: Info on Remington Speedmaster 552

I would say the RR code dates this as November 1968.
Also it appears that it is chambered for 22 shorts, and would be considered a Gallery rifle.
