    Oldie but Goodie: Remington MODEL 31F Grade 12 Gauge Shotgun

    Here we have an extremely rare Remington model 31 F Grade 12 Gauge Shotgun

    This fantastic “Oldie But Goodie Shotgun” does not belong to me (Sigh), but to a fellow Ts.com member. He left me a message on my Remington 31Tc thread.

    I had asked him, if he would please post some pictures, because I have never actually seen a model 31F grade before.

    He sent the pictures directly to me and I felt that this Fantastic Shotgun, needed a thread of its own…

    I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I did….

    Thanks Bill J, (wdj3805@yahoo.com)

    Did the gun come this way from the factory?

    How do you know it is an "F" grade, there does not appear to be a lot of room on the receiver.

    Also, does anyone agree that the 31 has a special sleekness not found in the Model 12? To me, the Model 12 is like a lion where the Model 31 is like a panther. Both handsome, but the panther is clearly built for speed!

    It is a Factory F Grade, so marked on the bottom of the receiver.

    Hi All...

    FYI….

    All of the High Grade Remington Model 31’s Where Made By the Remington Custom Shop Only…

    They where not a standard production gun….

    You could just about order anything you wanted; no two ‘F’ Grades look the same…...

    Choice of wood

    Choice of Engraving

    Choice of Inlays or no inlays…

    I have been doing some research over the past few days and here is another beautiful example of a model 31 F Grade that I found on the Web.. (I Also Don’t Own This One ….Sigh!)

    Anyone know what kind of pricing the F grade was??

    I imagine a basic price plus whatever you wanted.

    Had to be fairly pricey even back then.

    Nicer than a grade 5 12. (My opinion)



    Regards....Gerald
