CA357,

Excellent Remmy Shotgun, I'm turning green!!
For info, have you gone here?: Remington Society of America -

Great place with lots of knowledge about vintage Remingtons.
I'm a member there and got a lot of help on my Civil War era Remingtons.
You don't have to be a member to float through their forum. There's been topics before on Mohawks.

Good Luck!!
I want to hear about you dustin' some clays soon.

Thanks UF. I went to the Remington Society, but it looks like there's a fee to join and money's a bit tight right now.

I emailed Remington customer service on Friday and am waiting for a reply.

It's just an old recoil operated shotgun and not the best shotgun they ever produced. However, it's a looker and I'm trying to find out it it's actually chrome or not. It was produced around the time of the early Nylon 66 .22 rifles and they made a 66 in chrome. So, it's a quest to figure it out.

Noobnes forgiven. Finding older guns still in nice condition excites some of us. Finding unusual variants excites some of us. Sharing in a fellow member's new purchase is what the brotherhod is all about.

The Mohawk was a less expensive variant of the 11-48. They were mostly sold thru chain stores like Wards, Sears, etc. Good guns, based on the original John Browning design. I have never heard of one offered in Nickel, but I may be wrong. It is a good looking gun none the less.

Yup, it's mystery. It's been suggested that it has had the blueing removed and then been polished, but who knows? I have an inquiry including photos into Remington, hopefully they can come up with something on it.

Semi-auto?? How much did you snag it for if you don't mind me asking?

Most of us gun guys who have have modest collections like finding off-brand type guns or guns of a less expensive nature that are still high quality. I have a couple of expensive (to me) guns but some of my favorites are my Westernfield 550 20 ga, my Rossi 68 .38 sp 3", and my Sears Ted Williams 94 30-30. These three cost a total of $430. All were great deals as they are all almost like new. That makes for a pretty good brace of weapons and they all function well and look nice though plain compared to say a Rem 870, a S&W .38 and a Winchester 94.
