My 50+ year old Remington 12 gauge 11-48 is still doing its job. We got two pheasants yesterday in central Illinois. It's 28" barrel was originally full-choke, but I had it opened to Improved-Cylinder by a local gunsmith.

Between 1949 and 1968, Remington sold 455,000 of these shotguns. Many of them are still being used.

Well done! The 11-48 was always reliable in my experience as are all long recoil shotguns (Browning) I have owned.

I’d like to get one and see. That looks to be in very good condition. My two model 11s shoot nice but are heavy to carry much.

Young birds ?

That’s great to see one of those great guns in action still. They’re great handling guns that have a very thin for end that just points naturally for me. I have one w a skeet barrel that I just can’t get to reliable cycle. I think it might need a new recoil spring. I hope to get it running for rabbit season.

Great picture. 11-48s are handsome shotguns indeed.

Lovely job on those birds!!!

I have a Sportsman 48 (same gun but with a beveled mag tube) in 16. That gun is so sweet.

Nice gun. I like 11-48s. They don’t seem to get their due for the revolutionary guns that they were. I also like the vintage ammo you used.

Very nice photo.

A friend just gave me one, 16 gauge, with an exploded barrel which I shopping to replace at this time.

Your pic motivates me to keep searching for a barrel.

Thanks

I’ve owned several in 12, 16 and 20 gauge in my 68 years. For some reason I always let them go, probably because I was raised in the heyday of the Model 1100. The 11/48 were always lighter and to me pointed better than the 1100. Probably because of the smaller forearms and no vent rib. They were lighter too! As I age that weight is the most important. Maybe it’s time for another spin around the block with one?

Lovely 1148 you have there! I owned one in .410 and foolishly let myself be talked out of it by a friend. Wish I still had it.

I recently got an 11-48 12g and the previous owner never cleaned the shipping grease out of it, shot it a few times and then it sat in a closet for 30 years. I disassembled it and cleaned/lubed everything. For the life of me I can’t figure out the trick to reassemble the bolt. Specifically, how to get the firing pin retaining pin back in. Any help there would be appreciated. A video would be awesome if anyone knows where could I see one. YouTube didn’t have anything that broke it down that far. Thanks.
