Remington Model 11 Question

My wife inherited a Remington Model 11 and it has a bulge on the outside of the barrel.

Is this a feature on these models? I have seen one for sale recently and it has the same bulge about half way down the barrel.

I checked the bore and it seems to be smooth.

Does anyone have any definitive information?

Thanks

There is absolutely nothing normal about that bulge in the barrel. It was abused, probably either by firing with a restriction in the barrel (e.g., dirt in the muzzle) or by firing steel shot. The barrel is now scrap metal.

i once owned a md 11 made in 1905 first year of production.there was no bulge. if the bulge is near the muzzle then we all know what happened.if not i would not shoot it and look for a new barrel.but as most of us have found,you can buy a good used shgun for what a new barrel would cost

I inherited a Winchester model 97 12 gauge and it also has the bulge feature.

If it wasn't a safe queen, but maybe hanging in a rack out in the country and was actually used, it may have the same bulge mine has. A dirt dauber started building in my Grandpa's and he didn't know it. 1 shot and the barrel bulged. Still like that today.

I also must report, it is highly likely that a dirt dauber "was" indeed harmed in this unique, east Texas shotgun barrel modification.

Mine was made in 1914 and it is still a great shooter.Try to find a used barrel for it,they aren't cheap,but the Model 11 is a far better shotgun than most that are made today.
