What did you want to know?

The 11-48 looks similar to the mod 58, 1100, 11-87 but used a Browning recoil type action similar to the A-5. It has a recoil spring under the forend with friction rings to adjust for light or heavy loads. It also has a recoiling barrel like the A-5.

It was a very popular skeetgun back in the 50's & 60's, and was availible in 12, 16, 20, 28, & .410.

Remington came out with the 11-48 in 1949 & ran through '68 about 429,000 made. Like Dave said recoil operated, but did away with the hump back. According to the Blue Book, one in 95% cond. without vent rib $200.oo, - 28ga. & 410 bring a little more.

I have one in 16 gage. It's recoil operated with a friction ring under the barrel. On the positive side the gun is small and very sleek compared to the 1100. It is a good bit lighter also.
On the downside, it kicks like hell.
