Best left to a qualified gunsmith.
You can sell it to a bunch of gang bangers for like $400 and some crack rock.
Here's a place where you can get the answer to your question.
You are referring to, I assume, the model 11 or Sportsman. Remington produced these guns under the Browning patent in the United States during the 1940s. I am looking for an answer to a similar question and I have not gotten an answer yet, but from people I have talked to I am told that good condition gun would fetch somewhere in the $250-$350 range, depending. From a collector or resale standpoint, it seems that Browning A-5's held their value more compared to the Remingtons.
Is was made in 1919, that is the patent date. I suspect I have the patent posted in the patent section of the Gallery on the Remington Society of America if you want to see it...
Have one that was made in 1943
browning and Remington are two different companies, its not possible to have one companies gun under another companies patent.I beg to differ! I have a Remington model 81 woodmaster in 300sav.caliber that is made by remington and has John M.Brownings patent marked right on the barrel.Brownings patent for the remington models 8,and 81 were from the year 1900.The Remington model 8 was made from 1906-1936,and the model 81 from 1936-1950.All Winchester model 1886 rifles were made under a patent frpm John M.Browning.If you can re-post your question with the model number of your Remington,and caliber along with a 2 or 3 letter code found on the barrel of your firearm,I will be able to date your firearm for you.
Browning turned over the patent in 1940-1946.Your ser#a17xxx is most likely made by Remington. The Remington called it a Model 11.Serial #'s that include a letter states this...A=16ga,B=12ga,C=20ga.It's most likely your gun was manufactured in the W.W.2 era.If it looks like "Old Hump back" but has no indication of the words Browning on it ...It's a Remington. Remington shotguns from that era usually stated "United Metalic Cartrige Company". To be more clear, you have an "American Browning" made by Remington under contract to Browning. These guns were contracted by Browning to keep in business while FN in Belgium was under occupation by the Germans during WWII. Although they were made on the same equipment that Remington made the model 11, they are not considered Remingtons. The Remington plant included the magazine cutoff by the insistance of Browning, a feature that Remington model 11's never had. There was great resistance by Remington Management and workers to make these guns for Browning, but because of the relationship that John Browning and the Browning family had with Remington in the earlier part of the Century, the Remington Board agreed to do this favor for Browning. American Brownings were made from 1940 to 1949. Your serial number "A" stands for 16ga and it was actually in the 12,000 block of guns made. Under request of Browning the serial numbers started with 5000 for each guage. At the end of 1946, Remington had made a total of 10,783 16 guage guns and a total of another 3017 guns in 1947. Your gun was made in 1947.
we dont know do you ?
OK, by finding the Sportsman in an old reference I discover that it is the Model 11C. When I find that model in a newer book, it is indeed built under license from FN using the Browning Auto 5 patent. Suggested value in NRA Very Good condition is $250 and $300 in Excellent.
E. Remington and Sons (predecessor to Remington Arms Co) manufactured firearms in Ilion, New York, from 1860 to 1888.
This is probably a Remington model 11. It was made on Brownings patent for the auto 5. try a google search using IMAGES, and type in Remington model 11. auto5man
You will have to call Browning to find out.
This model was made by Savage between 1930 and 1949. Dates by Serial are unknown
Once a patent expires, the invention can be manufactured by anyone.
There was a Browning 12 gauge with the patent 2203378-223386, that was sold for $999.00 at an online auction.
Yes.The Remington model 11 auto loader shotgun which could be had in either 12 gauge or 16 gauge was made under a patent agreement with John Browning.These shotguns were made from 1911-1948.
Go to the Browning website, look under Customer Service. You will need the serial number, not a patent number.
OK, what is your question?
Stevens 520 pump
I would have to assume that you have a semi-auto shotgun.If your shotgun has a slight hump to the back of the reciever then it was a shotgun made with a browning patent and would have to be listed on the gun along with the royaltys paid to his patent.
It's a Stevens gun, not a Browning. The barrel is marked 'Browning Patent' but that is the extent of Browning's involvement with that shotgun. They were made before WW2 and sell for $100-$150 in typical shape.
Remington didn't make a 44 pump and I suspect the year is actually a patent date your reading on the barrel which is not the manufactured date. If it's a 22lr with no markings it's probably a model 12. Value is GREATLY determined by condition for which none is supplied.
This gun was probably produced during WWII by Remington. While the Nazi's took over the Belgium plant, Remington produced the Auto-5 under the Browning patent. The B stands for 12ga (A=16Ga, C=20Ga) and the 31398 is the serial #. As far as I can tell, Remington built these guns from 1940 until 1946 when production went back to Belgium
