    Remington 1911 SL shotgun

    This might belong in another forum...

    I'm looking at a Remington 1911SL shotgun (12 ga). Not the Model 11, but the "Widow Maker."
    I have two Model 11s that have a fiber buffer inside the receiver. From what I understand, the 1911 SL Widow Maker has a fiber barrel ring but I can't find any schematics to show where it is, or any info on what they are. Any info?

    I have had a lot of Rem 11s and have worked on a lot of them. I have canbalbilized many of them
    to make shootable guns and I have no idea what you are talking about. Are you sure you are not
    confused and are talking about a 1911 Win? That's the gun that is normally nicknamed the Widow
    Maker. The Rem 11 is a lincensed copy of the Browning A5 with minor changes.

    The "widow maker" is the Winchester Model 11.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    That would explain why I cant find info on it - it's a Winchester 1911SL, not a Remington 11.
    Like I said, I have two Remington 11s, and they have the fiber cushion in the rear of the receiver, but the Winchester 1911 SL has a fiber barrel buffer. Numrich does list them but they're out of stock. I was wondering if these buffers can be made of, say rubber.
    Thanks for the correction.

    When I read the title of this thread, I thought it would be a smoothbore 1911 with a really long barrel to avoid AOW classification a'la Tac-14/Shockwave.

    I should have posted it somewhere else, not under Factory RIFLES. Ooops.
