A friend of mine, now deceased, knew Mr. Unertl well.

In a discussion we had one day, he pronounced the name the same as has been discussed:

I looked into the tip off bases, but none of those indicate they fit the old Remingtons. Plus, it appears they all would span over the opening in the receiver.

So, last night I finally made my...

And also,

I also have a 514, also with iron sights, which I also have difficulty seeing. So, quoting myself above, does anyone know why the 514 can use a pair of #16s if already D&T, but #12s if not?

Scope mount for a Remington 511

My father recently gave me the first firearm he ever purchased. It's a March 1947 manufactured Remington 511, which he bought in 1948 when he was 16 or 17.

My eyes don't see open sights too well...

Yeah, I don't anticipate using the safety much on a single-shot, tin-can shooter. I try to keep the safety between my ears working all the time instead.

I tried one of the Federal shells I shot the other day, and a live Armscor round. It did better with the Federal.
