    I bought my son a Remington Model 11 shotgun at a pawn shop. How do I find out the year it was made and what it is worth? Are there any free sites to look this up? It looks like a Browning shotgun. Thanks for any help. I'm new to this site.:confused:

    It is a license-built A-5. Indeed, there was a time when the Browning A-5's were indeed made by Remington (during occupation). Older 11's have the safety in the trigger guard (works kind of like a Garand, where you stick you finger in the trigger guard and push the safety forward). Later ones have the safety mounted on the trigger guard like the later Remington shotguns.

    cowgirl,

    The M11 is a classic John Browning design, made from 1905 to shortly after WW2

    You already know the value as you just bought one. The value is set by what a willing buyer pays a willing seller. But in the grand scheme of things most M11's sell for $200 to $300.

    Post the serial number and I'll be able to date it for you.

    Jeff
