A lighter, streamlined version, of the Model 11 the Model 48 was the first new shotgun to be introduced by Remington after World War II. The 11-48 differs from the Model 11 in the shape of its machined steel receiver and the use of stamped steel internal parts. The new easily removable aluminum trigger housing was to be featured on its successors, the 1100 and the 11-87. The 48 was also one of the first shotguns to feature a self-adjusting friction ring. The Mohawk '48 variant is one of the last 11-48's produced and cleaned up a lot of the shotgun's early problems. This shotgun's barrel has been cut down from 23" to create a cylinder choke suitable for rifled slugs. The gun features a front bead sight, a cross-bolt safety, and a Weaver-style scope-mounting base. Its wood and bore are in good condition and its metal is in fair condition.
