Remington 11-87 XCS (Xtreme Conditions Shotgun) –Waterfowl Semi-Auto

Remington 11-87 XCS (Xtreme Conditions Shotgun) –Waterfowl Semi-Auto

Madison, NC – Remington has created two of the world’s toughest autoloading 12-gauge shotguns to meet, beat and thrive in the most extreme hunting conditions. The Model 11-87 XCS Super Magnum and Model 11-87 XCS Super Magnum-Waterfowl feature new finishes and features to make them the ultimate shotguns in the duck or goose blind. (Note: The Model 11-87 XCS Super Magnum shotguns are exclusive firearm offerings available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers. For a listing of dealers in your area, please visit our web site at www.remington.com/premierdealer.

Both guns are based on the proven Model 11-87 Super Magnum action and feature our proprietary, armor-like TriNyte Corrosion Control System coating on external metal parts for superior corrosion and abrasion resistance. Strenuous scientific testing has proven this durable TriNyte PVD (Physical Vapor Disposition) coating to be the toughest, most durable firearms finish on the market today, perfect for mornings in the mud, stubble of a Midwestern cornfield or the Atlantic’s salty spray.

On the XCS, we go one step further and nickel plate all the gun’s internal components, including the bore and magazine tube, to add another level of corrosion resistance - a feature not found on most ordinary shotguns. Though many autoloading designs have trouble digesting different length shotshells, both XCS Super Mag versions handle the full range of 12 gauge shotshell sizes from 2 3/4 to 3 1/2-inches. Barrels are proofed for steel shot and the newest generation of heavier-than-lead loads like our high-performance Wingmaster HD.

The Model 11-87 XCS shotguns utilize the innovative SPEEDFEED I stocks, which keep extra shot shells handy for quick reloading. The stock holds up to four 2 3/4-inch shells or two 3 or 3 1/2-inch shells. A patented Remington recoil pad significantly reduces the felt recoil of hard-hitting, magnum loads. Matching durable, synthetic fore-end provides for positive grip in wet conditions.

These guns come equipped with carbon steel 28-inch hammer-forged, vent rib barrels and Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full Rem Choke tubes are supplied to allow waterfowl hunters to match the pattern to any hunting situation. Twin beads allow quick but accurate sighting. Rear sling swivel stud and front magazine cap swivel stud provide for easy attachment of the black, padded sling, which is included.

The Model 11-87 XCS Super Magnum features an “Overcast Gray” TriNyte finish on the receiver and barrel, complemented by matte black furniture; while the Model 11-87 XCS Super Magnum-Waterfowl sports an “Olive Drab” TriNyte finish on external parts and the stock and fore-end are clad in Mossy Oak Duck Blind camo for the hunter seeking that extra level of concealment from the sharp eyes of ducks and geese. For quick target acquisition in low light conditions, this version also features a fiber optic TRUGLO front sight.

The Xtreme Conditions Shotguns are the perfect marriage of the time-proven Model 11-87 action with the best corrosion and abrasion-resistant finish technology has to offer.
