A 20g 11-48 crossed my path recently, and I've been very pleased with a 12g I picked up last year. It's been very reliable, low maintenance, and I shoot it well.

Is there anything to watch out for on the 20g model?

Thanks

Nope. They’re rock solid. Cool guns. I have them in 12, 20 and 28 gauge.

I've kind of been wanting an 11-48 in 16ga. It's not that easy to find a nice one which isn't overpriced.

.

Something to check and/or replace on any 11-48 is the buffer that prevents action/bolt battering.

(the .410 11-48's never had a buffer - at least the several I've had didn't.)

FWIW, I also keep a replacement recoil spring for my 11-48's, since they're known to give up the ghost with aging - don't forget that most of these are already at least 65 years old.

Here's the Field Service Manual for the 11-48:

Where is this buffer of which you speak?

Is there supposed to be a pad of some sort in the receiver, or are you referring to a spring somewhere?

Thanks
