I have recently acquired a Remington Model 31 TC Pump (S/N #89980 - barrel stamp is 'XSS' which I gather from RSoA is December 1947???) & Remington Model 11-48 Auto (S/N #5066113 - barrel stamp is 'PYY-3 AYY' - January 1952???). They appear to be in pretty decent condition for their age (at least better than what I've found on other online auctions and chat rooms). I have no idea what either is worth and I'm not sure if I should get them appraised/insured, spend the money to perform the minor refurb to make 100%, go ahead and shoot them in the field or trade for something else. I must say that I typically shoot a Remington 1100 in the field and not a serious skeet/trap shooter. Basically a couple times a year go out with some buddies for pheasant/quail so I apologize for my ignorance on the subject.

In case the upload didn't work properly, I've uploaded to Ofoto.com at the following address...

Thanks in advance...

A 31-TC in "pretty decent condition" is worth several hundred dollars, depending on how "pretty decent."

Post some more pictures and guys will tell you what they think - but based on the forend shown and if that level of bluing is on the entire gun, I think you're right around $1000. I definitely think it is worth a few bucks to restore.

The 48 isn't worth much unless it's perfect - and then really only to a collector (which is why it needs to be perfect). This gun is strictly a shooter.

If you are not a collector or trap shooter pass it along to someone who loves the quality of the old 31TC guns. It was one of the best in it's day and still capable of doing it today if so inclined.

It appears from the photo that there is a piece missing from the back of the fore end. If that is the case it will diminish the value as a replacement will be almost impossible to find.

As per ou. 3200 it looks like the forend has been modified as it should only have a small square-ish notch that allows the empty to eject, not the quarter circle shown in your pic. This will make no difference in shooting but to a collector it will. I would shoot it and not worry about what someone else says, I shoot one and those 31s are the slickest pump ever built.

As to value kinda depends on the overall condition, wood looks re-finished?? has it been reblued?? If it all looks as good as those 2 pics I would say in the $500.00 to $600.00 range. Ross Puls
