    I know that certainly the initials in the stock will not help. But I would think you should be able to get from $450-$475 for it maybe $500 to $550 if it did not have the initials carved in it I guess I would like to know how obnoxious the carving is.

    Are you sure the intials arent actually inspectors cartouches? Secondly what is the barrel length and what is the choke marking on the barrel?

    I have The Sportsman, which is either a later version or a spin off of the model 11. Yours should be worth double to what mine is, in accordance with what Sniper03 stated. Nice guns, mine is a shooter. Not real pretty, but gets the job done. There are still some parts available out there, not sure if changing the furniture would be worth the difference in cost.

    i usually dont buy weapons unless the barrel and everything matchs i want original, i dont want something that has been repaired or replace i believe guns are worth more when they are old and all original

    You have a commercial firearm built for civilian use that was purchased by the goverment under a blanket pacurement, then stamped with US property marks. Early war production. We were so short of guns when the war started the military actually went to hardware stores to buy needed guns the stories go. The fact it has an engraved reciever, high gloss bluing, and checkered stock bear this out. The FJA intials are the inspecters marks and the crossed cannons are military as well. Nice factory riot barrel, many were full choked long barrels that were cut down.
