Early Models (1905-1920)




The earliest models of the Remington Model 11 were called the "Remington Autoloading Gun" and did not have a model number. They were chambered in 12 gauge only and had a five-shot capacity. The serial numbers were stamped on the bottom of the receiver, in front of the trigger guard. The serial numbers started at 1 and went up to 199611 by 1919. The serial numbers were preceded by the letter U, which stood for "Union Metallic Cartridge", the company that merged with Remington in 1911.


To date these early models, you can use an extrapolated serial number list that was compiled by James Tipton, a Remington historian and collector. His list was published in the 2nd Quarter 2000 issue of the Remington Society of America magazine and later updated on the Remington website. According to his list, here are some examples of the years matching the serial numbers:



  • U175X - 1905



  • U743X - 1905



  • U7149X - 1909



  • U7521X - 1909



  • U10330X - 1911



  • U10660X - 1911



  • U15240X - 1913



  • U18593X - 1915



  • U19705X - 1917




Late Models (1921-1947)




The later models of the Remington Model 11 were officially named as such and had some changes in design and features. They were available in 12, 16, and 20 gauge and had a four-shot capacity. The serial numbers were moved to the left side of the receiver, near the loading port. The serial numbers started at 200000 for the 12 gauge, at 1000000 for the 20 gauge, and at 1500000 for the 16 gauge.


To date these late models, you can look for a two- or three-letter date code that was stamped on the left side of the barrel, near the frame. The date code consisted of a letter for the month of manufacture, followed by one or two letters for the year of manufacture. The month letters were as follows:



AJanuary


BFebruary


CMarch


DApril


EMay


FJune


GJuly


HAugust


I or JSeptember


K or LOctober


M or NNovember


O or PDecember



The year letters were as follows:

>No code (or Ma or Mb)>1946 (Jan-Jun)>


>No code (or Na or Nb)>1946 (Jul-Dec)>


>No code (or Oa or Ob)>1947 (Jan-Jun)>



To find the date code, you may need to remove the barrel from the receiver and look for a small oval with the letters inside. You may also find other markings on the barrel, such as the gauge, the choke, the patent dates, and the inspector's marks. Here are some examples of the date codes and their meanings:



- CK - April 1941 - XPP - December 1945 - LK - October 1930 - ZA - January 1937
