The gun was won by my grandfather at a shooting match in Kermit, WV. in the 1940's, it's bluing is worn and has some cracks (small) in stock, but overall looks good and shoots perfect - He always told me if you can see a squirrel,you can kill it with this gun and i've done this many a time...

is it a 5 or 3 shot?
At last, a shotgun on here that I can relate to!

Try the Remington Society. As you're not listing any barrel date codes, it's quite possible that the gun was made before 1921 when Remington started using them.

Remington Society of America - questions/barrelcodes

They're saying the codes are on the left side of the barrel, but on my 11-48, the date code is on the right side and the barrel is serial numbered to the gun.
