    Finally got the nerve up to disassemble the 11-48 action and clean it. I have never taken apart an auto and I dont look forward to doing it again.

    This was my wife's grandfather's favorite gun to shoot trap and phesant with, and Ive been wanting to get it to shoot right since my brother in law gave it to me.

    So after a few hours of being so frustrated I almost gave up a few times, I finally got it all back together. I loaded it up with 2 low brass shells, and bang bang. Fast as I could pull the trigger.

    I honestly dont think it had ever been stripped and deep cleaned.

    Thanks Yankee for finding me that diagram of the action a year ago!:D

    11-48s are pretty good old guns, based loosely on the Browning patents, as you probably know. Due to their age, I probably wouldn't shoot magnum loads in it, (heck, they kick!), but for an upland gun, they are really great hunting guns. Light, point well, etc.

    I had one when I was still in high school, kinda wish I had that one back. I like gas guns better, but those are still pretty darned good.
