Questions about some old shotguns I recently got.

I went to an auction this past weekend and picked up 3 shotguns. I'm trying to figure out exactly what they are before I go looking for parts.

The first shotgun is a J Steven's A&T Co. side by side 12 ga. Serial number 250XX. No date codes but it does say "pats appl'd for". I'm guessing its a model 311 but not sure.

Next shotgun I believe is a remington model 10 12ga. Serial number is U426XX. No date code but says "pats. Feb 3 1903 May 16 1905.

Final shotgun is a remington model 11 12ga. Not date codes serial number 1545XX.

Could anyone verify the models of these shotguns?

Thanks.

Can't do much without seeing clear pictures of your guns.

Without pics it's just a guess, but
* the Stevens A&T Co shotgun is more likely a model 335, manufactured from 1912 to 1930-ish.

* Remington Model 10 was made in 12 ga only from 1908-1929. These are notoriously bad because of jamming once they get a little wear in the action.

* Remington Model 11 was made from 1903 to 1947. It is a version of the John Browning 1901 Automatic Shotgun (most famous as the Browning Auto 5). Good guns if they are in good condition.

All vintage stuff!
