Anyone have a real live 11-48 Remington ?

Post by Follow Me » Mon Mar 03, 2014 1:36 pm

I need to make eyeball contact with someone in the Fort Myers vicinity that has a Remington 11-48. I sent the gun to an older gunsmith friend who passed away prior to returning my gun. I was lucky to get it back. Anyway, I do not believe that I received all the recoil system parts. My hope is that I will be able to compare my gun recoil system to another gun and see "what is what". Any help would be appreciated.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Thanks for the reply. I have looked at the Remington 11-48 info that is downloadable and Stevespages.com downloadable stuff. Probably my preconceived ideas tell me to not believe what I see but something doesn't look right. that's why I need to "look".

I just assembled one (dtd. 1951) from pieces. What part(s) do you think are missing? Can you post pics?

870Mike you just confirmed my loss of parts. The "cap thingee" shown at the top of your recoil spring is what is missing on my gun. And the schematic you posted is what I have downloaded from Remington. It shows the "cap". Now to look for a cap somewhere. I have a list of old parts dealers which is also on the net.
Thanks much.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of 11-48 parts up for auction on Gunbroker & Ebay.
