I picked up a remington model 11 semi 12 ga for really cheap ($20) the only thing that is bad is the first 1.5" of the barrel is bulged. It shoots great and I am considering cuting off the bad part and somehow reattach the sight. A gunsmith said he would cut and crown the barrel for $75 and my hacksaw is sounding better at this time. I was thinking about using the bulged section as a slide on front sight. This is the field grade one and has about 10% blueing left and a cracked stock. Is this worth anything or should I hack away? I was also thinking I could buy a mount and get a cheap red dot for some fun. Is there a scope mount for a model 11 or is it wecsog time?
