:lol: I have one manufractured in 1923 according to the serial number and the barrel stamp near the receiver. My came with a 30 inch vent rib barrel and a 20 inch plain barrel. I havn't shot it yet but I am looking forward taking it to the Skeet Range soon.

I used to have a Remington 11 that I'd bought used. The previous owner had shortened the barrel to 18 1/4" and had drilled and tapped a bead sight onto it. It had a solid rib (which is rare), a slim forearm, and brass insets on the grip. The finish had become browned and well-aged. The forearm had a crack in it, though. I used to shoot it one-handed like a pistol occasionally (which is more easily done with a Mossberg 500 Cruiser).

I have 7 model 11s in various gauges & am always looking at others. I believe that a vent rib bbl is much more uncommon than a solid rib, in fact I've never seen or heard of one with a factory v.r. I have 4 with a solid rib. I may be wrong on this, I'd be interested to know. Thanks.

I meant rare in the sense that nowadays you see mostly vent ribs regardless of make and model. You don't see a lot of solid ribs on modern guns (discluding doubles).

I have a number of model 11's in all of the gauges and a few high grades. A couple of them have vent rib barrels, several have solid ribs. My observation is that plain barrels are most common, then solid ribs, and the fewest have vent ribs.

My father in law gave me his dad's model 11 this Christmas were can I find information on this weapon. I have been to Remingtons site and found an article and I have been to the Rifle Information page too. What I am looking for is what kind of shot can I use in it and general maintenance info. It is a 12 ***** with a Poly choke on it . Any information would be great
thanks.
