Included in this lot is a Remington Model 11, 12 Gauge semi-automatic shotgun. John Moses Browning designed his definitive Auto-5 shotgun in 1898. The Auto-5 hit the commercial market in 1900 as the world’s first successful auto loading shotgun. Browning attempted to sell his Auto-5 design to Winchester, only to have company officials balk at his terms. He subsequently offered his design to Remington. In a darkly unexpected turn of events, Remington’s president died of a heart attack in the midst of negotiations. Browning eventually revisited his arrangement with Remington, and the company produced his design in the United States from 1905 to 1947. This shotgun shows a lovely gray patina 30" round barrel. The barrel is marked "Remington Arms Co., Inc. Ilion N.Y. Made in U.S.A. Browning’s U.S. Patent 689.283-710.094-730.870-812.326". The barrel is also marked on the left near the receiver "Full." The receiver has lost much of it's original blue and the stock is in good condition with small compression marks from wear and use. Serial Number: 322677. This firearm qualifies as a Curio & Relic, and requires FFL Transfer or NICS Background Check.
