    Hello there…I thought some of you might appreciate seeing some of the older shotguns in my collection….

    Here is one of my favorites: Remington Model 11 F Grade

    This fantastic piece of Remington history has an extremely low serial number in the 5000 range which dates it to 1908…... This is the way I purchased it. I have had it in my collection for the past 20 years….The engraving is deep chisel, hand engraved. I don’t think the wood is Factory but a replacement set that was made in the 40’s or 50’s……

    The barrel has A factory installed Cutts Compensator….The gun came with a complete set of Cutts Tubes in the original Wood Box with the wrench….

    I hope you enjoying seeing these pictures as much as I enjoy owning the gun….

    Thanks for looking….

    Stu Gabriel

    Stu,

    Nice gun. My son has an old model 11 that looks alot like yours. No where as nice.
    He had a gunsmith cut the barrel and put on the Cutts.

    He patterned it after Lone Wolf Gonzales,(Famous Texas Ranger) riot gun.

    you can throw those pretty far when they jam. Mine went 32.5 yards in to the river once. Yes I reteived it, and yes, I was shooting bluedot duck reloads.

    Beautiful gun.

    Rick,

    You know way more than I do about these guns. I brought this one just because I really liked it. I am a wood freak when it comes to the guns in my collection.

    I especially like the way it looked and that it came with the complete set of original cutts tubes with the box.

    It was difficult, for me,to date the gun, because the published serial numbers don't go down that low. I have always gone by what I was told several years ago, by an old time Remington Collector, that the 1908 year was approximate year the gun was made.

    Either way, what ever year it was made, it is a very nice part of my collection....

    Thanks for posting the guns from your collection.....

    Stu, That is an AWESOME gun. What pi**es me off is that at some point an unscrupulous dealer is going to say to whoever you leave the gun to "Yeah...old gun, impossible to find parts...ruined by Cutts...blahblahblah...I'm doing you a favour at $200 cash". What pi**ses me off even more is that someone you know and respect will say to your benefactor "Dealer ripoff merchant ba*tards...here's $300". It wasn't always easy to tell her, but my wife knows exactly how much I paid for my nice stuff, what it is realistically worth, and a bottom line that would make me cry if I was still around. Enjoy ownership my friend, and thank you for sharing...I get a little maudlin with a bellyfull of single-malt and for that I apologise. Cheers-Graham.

    Grahm....

    I know exactly where you are comming from. I had the same thoughts about what would happen to my collection when I am Gone....

    I have made arrangements, thru my attorney, to liqudate the collection, on behalf of my family, when I am gone. He has a complete list which includes purchase price and current market value. I send him an updated list every year..

    Unfortuneatly, none of my children have any interest in the collection....

    I have heard of to many stories where the wife or estate just gave the collection away or sold them, just to get them out of the house....

    thanks,

    Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

    Hey aren't you my long lost father that had a time with my mom ONCE. I love shooting and enjoy guns. It would be uncomfortable to talk with people on this site and/or your attorney before approaching you about my inheritance and back child support BUTt I would gladly forgive all of the back support for the bottom line on your will. Just tell me where to pickup the guns and we'll just call it even with one BIG HUG. motordoc.. by the way --just kidding--really nice collection--dad.

    Cubancigar2000,

    I have been told that Cutts Tube set which includes the wrench, all the tubes and the box, in the condition that's it's in is worth around $600.00...

    I have not been able to confirm this value. It really dosen't matter as far as I am concerned, I wouldn't seperate from the shotgun anyway...They belong together...

    Thanks for your comments...

    I have sold three sets like that and none brought $250 dollars. The hard one to find is the 3 tube box for the .410. They came with some Winchester factory cutts model 42's and bring around #350. Jeff
