    Not as old as some of the guns in this thread, but I have a Remington 1100 12 gauge Magnum with the 30" barrel that I absolutely love. I replaced a much newer Remington with this thing and I have no regrets. It's one of those cases where they truly don't make them like they used to.

    I've also never found another gun that patterns buckshot as well as this thing does. Several of my hunting buddies are also using these.

    I have got a Remington Model 31 in 20 gauge supposedly made in 1931. It was my first shotgun and still shoot it on occasion. My second shotgun was a 1970’s vintage 870 Wingmaster with 28 inch barrel.

    I also have a Rem Model 31 in 20 gauge. It was made Feb 1946. The only trouble with it is that in 1969 I was shooting slugs at a target to get ready for deer hunting in Wisconsin. I had a slug that I could see leave the barrel and did not go much more than 20 yards. I continued shooting, and did not find a bulge in the barrel just in front of the take down lug until I was cleaning my shotgun. I was 20 years old and have been looking for a replacement barrel since then.

    How about a Remington 514SR

    For those not in the "know", the 514 was a 22 caliber single shot rifle. Of the 750k made, 5000 were made special order in what as known as a Routledge Bore. Those 5000 or so are technically shotguns, shooting only 22LR shotshells. The Routledge bores were smoothbore, with the last half or so of the barrel bored out to .400". This effectively quadrupled the effective range of these shotshells, and created a nice pattern. Remington used this Routledge bore on a few 22 rifles over the years. Many rats, bees, grasshoppers, sparrows, etc have fallen in the face of a Routledge bore.

    My Routledge Bore Remington .22 is in the Model 510. With the same counter bore barrel and bead front site. It was made Dec 1945. From what I have read they made about 11,000 of them made.

    Iirc, the 510 was a little before the 514. I believe production stopped in the 60s for the 514. I dont know when mine was made. It's in good shape though. I would've loved to have one back when I was shooting grasshoppers with the ol red ryder

    I've also got an A grade with Damascus barrels and a 16 gauge Model 1900. The 1900 goes bird hunting with me occasionally. They are all over 100 years old.

    I have three of the Model 3200, and have shot them in trap, skeet, and sporting clays. Probably my favorite design for a shotgun.

    Let's see, Remington SxSs - 1873, 1875, 1882, 1889, and a A, B, C, and three F grade 1894s. Also a Model 10, 11, 31, and a 870. I shoot all the guns as often as possible seeing how I run the shotgun venue at the local club three times a week. All the SxSs are Damascus barreled except the three F grade trap guns. All Remington shotguns were nitro proofed. Remington was the one who made barrels without a weld running down it's length, making it about the strongest barrel at that time, be it rifle or shotgun. They'd start with a 9" long 2" round hunk of steel with a 1/2" hole drilled in the middle. This they'd heat and put in a rolling mill and roll it out to what ever length they wanted. They made rifle barrels for all over the world because no one had to worry about a weld letting go. Not sure of what pressures the shotguns were proofed at, but I'd have to think that over the years just about everything at some time was shot through them. I reload and keep pressure to around 8000psi or less. I worry more about cracking 100+ year old stocks than blowing a barrel . Clang, does your C grade have the etoile pattern ? In Semmers book he claimed it was the only pattern he ever saw on them. My does. I had Brad Bachelder redo the entire gun. Sadly, he just passed away.

    The best series produced shotguns in America were Remingtons: 1894, 17, 31, 32, 870 and 1100. In terms of current production I have read good things about 870 Wingmaster and Versamax semi-auto.
