Remington Model 11

Post by strods on May 2nd 2014, 2:29 pm

Trying to tie the age down a little more. It has a 5 digit serial starting 75___. I know the reference about BLACKPOWDERX on the side barrel code, but there is none, so I am assuming pre-1921. My understanding is the Model 11 was started in 1911 so I'm guessing in that decade. Any confirmation of these fact or tips on more specifics would be appreciated.

How can I tell how old my Remington firearm is?
Question

How can I tell how old my Remington firearm is?
Answer

If you will call or email us the serial number and model number we can determine the approximate age of your firearm.

Serial numbers were not required until 1968. For models without a serial number, we may be able to determine the age by the 2-3 letters that are stamped on the barrel.

Contact us through our Help Center by email or call us at 800-243-9700 Mon-Fri 9-5 EST.

The Web says that Remington made 850,000 of this model shotgun, so you may have an earlier production.

Not to get off tangent here but if they ever had registration of firearms how would you register guns made prior to 1968?

Almost all firearms of any decent quality had serial numbers waaaay prior to 1968.  Colt revolvers made in the Civil War had Serial Numbers.

However, if such a thing came to pass, the Government would just require that a "unique" number be stamped into the frame:

http://www.harborfreight.com/catalogsearch/result?q=number+punch+stamp

Then that gun of that caliber and make would be registered with the "unique" O.A.N.  (Owner Applied Number).

Remember what we talked about before?  You can build your own silencer (if it's not illegal in your state), but you must first get a permit/registration from ATF with a serial number on the application, then you must stamp that unique O.A.N. into the body of the device.

Same thing, if they required registration of Pre-1968 guns that didn't have serial numbers.


********************************************************************************

Tom is pretty-much in the ball-park of guessing when his gun was made. It is in the first 10% of that model shotgun made, and so was probably made in the first decade of production, maybe even the first 7 years or so.

I would expect that, if there are any Remingtons of the last 100 years without serial numbers, they were probably "contract" guns made for outfits like Sears, Western Auto, or Monkey Ward.

Cool, so soon I'll have a Centennial firearm.
Still works too.
