Thanks for the correction, Impala.

And who says that stocks for a Browning A5 won't fit on a Remington Model 11. I installed a set of Ramline synthetic stocks on my refinished 1906 Model 11 with very little modification. I'm sure wood stocks would be just as easy.

Here's a site that also carries new and old stocks:

On my Model 11, the RamLine A5 forend slid right on. I would have to bend the lower tang on my shotgun for the buttstock to fit.

Re the stock, call Brileys in texas about fixing that one, I found an A5, (same basic gun, different maker_) where they had fixed a broken wrist using epoxy, carbon fiber and some other bits and it was never going to pass as new, it was clearly now safe to shoot and it was a very well done repair, Its not going to be cheap, but its going to work. Its also cool to say, yeah, its still all grampa's gun.
