I was going through my gun safe and decided to get rid of a few guns I never use. One is a Remington Model 11 with a 30" full choke barrel-solid rib. The receiver is scrolled very nicely. The gun functions very nice and I would say it's 90%. Does anyone have any idea what a fair street price would be for the gun? The wood is good, but the recoil pad is dry rotted. -Thanks for any assistance

If it is a true 90% gun with a good pad, retail around $300. As you describe it probably $250.
You might try the gun value and ID forum where the real experts are.

I appreciate the response. I don't think its high grade-just the way Remington made guns years ago with the nice engraving. The engraving extends into the barrel.

See what the guys over at ID and Value think. I was going by a dated gun values book I have.
If you can find a period recoil pad in good shape that would add some resale value.

Regular model 11s have no engraving. Some have stamped game scenes like on the sportsmen. Anything with scroll engravings is a higher grade gun. The c or d grades on gunbroker i have seen go for 1000ish.

From its introduction, as the Remington Autoloading Gun in 1905, to about 1936, the Model 11A “Standard” Grade, Model 11B “Special” Grade and the Model 11C “Trap” Grade had no engraving. The Model 11D “Tournament” Grade, Model 11E “Expert” Grade and No. 11F “Premier” Grade were hand engraved with fancy finished stocks and forearms.

When the 3-shot version of the Model 11 was introduced by Remington Arms Co., Inc., in 1930, it came with a three-bird roll-stamping on each side of the receiver.

About 1937 Remington Arms Co., Inc. began making their Model 11A and “The Sportsman” A receivers the same with a one-bird roll-stamping.

We need to see some good pictures of your gun to see if it is a factory higher grade or some manner of aftermarket engraving. Quite a few GIs got entry-level American guns heavily engraved in post-WW-II occupied Japan and Germany.

Reaearcher01- I do not know how to post pictures on the computer. My son did take photo's with his phone and I can email them to you. My email is chuck8630@gmail.com I appreciate your help-It looks like the 11D tournament Grade but with a solid rib.

Hopefully it is a 11D. In my book that puts it in the $850 area in VG condition. I didn't see anything in your original post about engraving on the barrel, special checkering, etc. to indicate a higher grade.
Good news.

Here are Chuck's pictures --

Looks like a well worn No. 11D "Tournament" Grade that has had the checkering recut and some finish slapped on the stock. Also, at some point in time someone had a rear sight on it leaving those two holes filled with liquid steel on the back of the receiver.

Actually, I dont think it is a Model No. 11. It doesn't have the lock screws on the big screw heads on either side of the receiver. I think it is a Remington Autoloading Shotgun in No. 4 quality. I can't quite read the serial number in your photos. What does it say on the barrel? Is it Remington Arms Co. (1910 or earlier) or is it Remington Arms - Union Metallic Cartridge Co. (1911 to 1920)?

It says Remington Arms Co. Ilion, NY USA. Under that it lists Browning patent dates up to 1903.

I'd say, given the condition of the metal and the less than optimal refinish of the wood, that it is in the neighborhood of a $700 gun. Perhaps a bit more if the the stock is uncut and still sports its original butt plate.
