I also have an older Remingtom M11 for HD. I bought it for $75.00 from a fellow that kept it on his fishing boat. "For sharks" he said.

The end of the barrel was rotted out from blood & salt water and the receiver was pitted pretty bad also. I had to shorten the barrel in the lathe to 21" and solder on a new front sight.

I then polished up the receiver as best I could and put on a 2 shot mag extension. I sanded and put a coat of laquer on the stock and forearm. A shake & bake finish was the final touch to cover my mistakes.

I was a little concerned if it would cycle with the shortened barrel but it works great. I may add a recoil pad later.

Total cost: A little under $200.00.
