Remington Model 11 C Grade!

Post by 35Rem » Wed Jan 16, 2013 4:43 pm

What's a Model 11 C worth these days? :D

Got it in today. Felt like it took a year! LOL

The barrel serial # matches the receiver. It's original. Not sure why it's not marked "11-C"

Another oddity - The forend has the # "4" stamped on it - As in #4, or D grade wood. I haven't got to the buttstock, and probably won't for a few days. The recoil does not look original, however the stock isn't cut. It still has the curve to it. Easy fix, there.

Hey, what a beauty! It also seems to have a solid rib,a great plus for'it. It appears to be a 12 guage?? Also appears to be a full choke,kind of a minus. It may be a deluxe a-grade with d-grade wood too. It is in miraculous condition for such an early gun. It's only a guess but I'd say minimum $800-$900. Probably more. A-5 s are more my field, but this is a rare bird no matter what it is.
Thanks for your time,
Roger

-what Roger said - nice Model 11!

keep us posted as you learn more about your shotgun. I've got the Savage 720 cousin with vent rib, and modified bore.

You have a real prize there, these 11C English stock models are the hardest to find except for engraved models. Yours has top grade english walnut stocks and appears to be in top condition, I have a similar looking one 2984xx made 1925. Price/value, whatever arms length negotian results in so few are around or ever seen for sale. 11Cs were availabie on special order as long as model 11s were made (1948) and maybe longer from custom shop. Full choke also indicates trap shooting use. Solid rib indicates earlier production like mine, later ones had vent rib. These were not so popular with shooter on right as ejected shell sometimes hit them. Pad is understandable as shooter took a beating from 100 target matches, mine however must have special order as it has castoff buttstock, no buttplate or pad and instead butt is checkered.
Thanks for sharing, Jerry
