Remington Model 11 with U.S. and Bomb stamped in receiver
My buddy has a Remington Model 11 with U.S. and a Bomb stamped next to it on the left side of the receiver.
Model 11 is stamped on the Bolt side at ejection port.
It has no checkering on forearm nor buttstock but some nice wood.
No rib, pheasant scene on right receiver side, Duck marsh scene on left.
Approx. 27" barrel.
I can't find any mention of it in Bluebook of values.
It appears to be a pre model 11A but no model 11 is mentioned nor any with such markings in the Bluebook.
I hope someone can help with what it is and idea of value?

Either gunbroker or Gunsamerica.com had some on there. You can get an idea that way. Strange enough I just signed in to ask a question about a Remington 11 and was thinking , I bet many don't even know what that is. I just bought one myself, actually traded for it. Mine had barrel cut down to 19 inches and gold bead sight installed by gunsmith. Great shooting gun. Nice ones are $500 and up and I believe the US marked guns bring a little more.

There are several versions of the US marked Remy`s floating around. The premiums are brought by legit USGI riot guns. You`ll find a lot of M11s with US and the ordnance mark that were owned by the US military, but were issued to/used by shooting clubs on various military bases, hence the property marks on what is actually a sporting shotgun and not a "combat" weapon. I think the Navy even used some for "antiaircraft training" in the early days of WWII.
I collect Remy 22`s, and have been thru quite a few M11`s as well. I`m building a home defense gun from a bunch of M11 parts now. Where do y`all live that M11s bring $500+? A near mint one around here does well to bring $400. I`ve bought several good shooters in the $150-200 range, and even bought 2 off this board a while back for $250 shipped for the pair(both 1920`s vintage too)
great shotguns for people like me who like the design, but don`t want to fork over the $$ for an A-5!
