    Remington 11/48 help

    Hi everyone I have a 12ga Remington 11/48 that I recently got as part of a trade. The guy I got it from bought it used at a gunshow and told me right away he only fired it once but didn't know how many times the previous owner fired it. What do I need to do or check to make sure it is ok to shoot?

    I would dismantle it and give it a thorough cleaning, during which I would examine all parts for excessive wear, corrosion, abuse, etc. Check the condition of the bore for bulges or cracks. If anything suspicious is found I would turn it over to a gunsmith for repair before firing it. Good luck finding parts, that gun hasn't been produced since 1968.

    I have a 11-48 that my grandpa gave me. My advice is... Check the extractor claw and see if the back of the barrel rotates. It should rotate slightly we're talking 1/32 of a turn if that and thats a guesstimate. This rotation helps the action work IMHO. The action on the 11-48 is interesting as the barrel gos into the receiver to cycle. Keep hands free of barrel when shooting. Make sure to shoulder tight and best of luck. :)
