Re: Remington Model 10

While the "standard" barrels of the Remington Repeating Shotgun/Model 1908/Model 10 was Remington Steel, in the pre-WW-I years the option of an Ordnance Steel barrel was offered.

Re: manufacture date of model 11

That serial number chronology for 12-gauge Model 11s is right on with the old factory ledger when the ledger starts in 1919, but it is 10K off by 1931?!?

Re: Beautifully Restored!?!?

The gun is one of those transition guns with the concave rib but still with the company name roll-stamped on the rib. See The Double Gun & Single Shot Journal, Volume Thirty, Issue 2, pages 42 to 53.

Evolutionary Changes in the K-Grades

Good article on a transition KED-Grade in the Summer 2019 issue of The Double Gun & Single Shot Journal , Volume Thirty, Issue 2. The gun discussed is serial number Q354886, which has the early style stock and frame, but with the early sear pin hole plugged and a new sear pin hole in the late style ...

Re: Pigeon Gun ? or Trap Gun ?

1. Not that I know of.

2. No.

3. Only a well advertised, no reserve, auction can tell that. Very likely the cost of a correct restoration by one of our present day masters would far exceed the market value of the fully restored gun.

Re: Grandfather's 1889

It certainly can be confusing for the newcomer. From the get go of cartridge shotguns here in North America, the "standard" length for 12-gauge paper shells was 2 5/8 inch, but 2 3/4, 2 7/8, 3 and 3 1/4 inch 12-gauge shells were available. For England and Europe the 2 1/2 inch (65 mm) shell was the ...

Re: Grandfather's 1889

Surviving hang-tags show that at the time your gun, 250182, was built, Remington Arms Co. was targeting their 12-gauge guns with the Union Metallic Cartridge Co.'s ARROW shell with Load No. 8, with #8 chilled shot. Load No. 8 was 3 drams of bulk smokeless powder pushing 1 1/4 ounce of shot. From the...

Re: Grandfather's 1889

According to the serial number chronology produced from surviving shipping records by the late Charles Semmer for his book Remington Double Shotguns , 250182 would be from 1905. The Remington New Model Double Barrel Shotgun was made in seven qualities from No. 1 to No. 7. The three lowest grades wer...
