re: Were older generations better wing shooters than us?


Hell yes and if you didn't know this all you had to do was ask them...

I'm 50 now and inherited a lot of those old Remington Mod 11's, the Belgium Brownings and a side by side Fox which was cut down from a full choke in the 1930's so as not to tear up the burds... pity killed the value but, it will keep on passing down and shouldn't ever be sold anyway.

Deer didn't come back into play in the South until the late 70's so they pretty much missed that but Duck/quail/dove we just don't know what they did...

way easier to knock them down with lead.

MiL has a Remington Semi-Auto shotgun built on the Browning A5 patent, from around 1915. Came in a leg-o-mutton case, with full choke barrel for ducks and geese, and cylinder barrel for quail. Really neat old gun.

That would be a Remington Model 11 of which I have a 20 gauge and it has an improved cylinder barrel and a full choke barrel.

Side note it has a ring on the spring cylinder that you place up top or below depending if you are using high or low brass shells.

Lots of excuses on here as to why, but no question, yes they were significantly better shots.

Yep, those are great guns! I have a buddy that has two of them and I have two A5's (a standard, and magnum 12). We still hunt with them in little timber hole we have. Shoot bismuth out of them.

Savage also made the Model 720, and a couple of others using the same design. In '48 Remington started making the 11-48 which got rid of the humpback design but still used the recoil operated action.
