First let me say that this is a great forum with some of the friendliest folks around. I've been lurking for quite some time, and have learned a lot by just reading and searching. One thing I have not found is a definitive answer to the question of whether or not a Browning Auto 5 recoil spring will work in a Remington Model 11. Does anyone know for sure, one way or the other?

Thanks!

While the two guns are very similar, they are not identical in every way. I would heistate to use Browning Auto 5 parts in either a Model 11 Remington or a Savage for that matter. Parts for your Remington Model 11 should be readily available through Brownell's, especially such mundane parts like springs.

You can use the A5 action and recoil springs in your M11. I have done this with my savage 720.

I was hoping that would be the case, but Brownell's doesn't have much of anything for the Model 11. I have found Model 11 parts at a few other places such as Numrich and Bob's Gunshop, but the recoil spring seems to be a little problematic. Numrich lists only the three shot version in 12 ga, and Bob's doesn't say. I've tried calling and emailing them, but so far haven't received a response.

I definitely appreciate everyone's responses. If anyone else has input on which parts are interchangeable between the Model 11 and the Auto 5 please feel free to post. I will gladly accept any help I can get!

Go to Midwest Gunworks, a sponsor on this board.

Use the A5 parts list to pick out your springs. They shipped mine quickly and it was an easy transaction.

On the Remmy model 11, how long should the recoil spring be?

I assume we are talking about the 12 ga models?

The Browning recoil spring, and friction rings/pieces will work.

I have both the 3 and 5 shot guns, and the recoil springs are not any different on my guns. The barrel lugs are in the same position on the Sportsman and Model 11.

Mike M.

The recoils spring vary in length, depending on how used they are.
