Really nice, cw!

I've got a 26" mod & open 20 ga 311 that I was given in 1967 by my dad as my first gun. Still my go to gun for quail.

I picked up many of these over the years when I did gunshows for $100 or less. Cleaned them up, cut and milled the barrels to 20", moved the beads and sold for $300 up.

I've always had a soft spot for the 311s

A 311 in 20ga. is what my brother uses during early season (leaves still on) partridge season. Does not look as nice as yours has came out, beautiful.

Me too!


Hey, instead of hijacking the other thread...


I had a screwy week last... never was able to stop at the gun shops in NH sand COTE in Eustis... VERY NICE STORE! I thought I was in Bean! Excellent selection of long guns supplies as well as light reloading section and buku ammo! I scored two used holsters for lil less then ONE would have cost new, a pound of 322 and Magazine. I even went there TWICE! I hit them again Sunday on the return trip thru and ate breakfast at the Northern Exposure across the street.


Thanks for the tips!

Glad you made it to Cote's, that's one of the best shops around. Their ammo selection is great. You're right, it's like a mini Bean's.

Just browsing this forum and came across this older thread. As I am interested in Stevens shotguns, both single and double barrel, I read this thread with interest, especially as I like to refinish the wood on older guns as well, but I may not be up to CW's standards. Nice Work!

Anyway...I was just wondering if you have patterned this shotgun or used it to hunt birds, etc. The finished product would look good in the field or woods or even a duck blind. Awesome!
