Another look at Javier Bardem's Remington 11-87 shotgun from No Country for Old Men
NRANews.com usually runs a Curator's Corner segment every Thursday night. This week, however, they are broadcasting live from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC. So for those of you in need of a new gun fix, NRAblog brings you a Remington 11-87 shotgun.
This particular model is fresh off the truck and headed to the National Firearms Museum's new "Hollywood Guns" exhibit. This 12-gauge was wielded by Javier Bardem as the bad boy enforcer/collector in "No Country for Old Men."
Fitted with a suppressor, the Remington was used by Javier when confronting a rival faction in his quest to recover the stolen money. The only problem is time.
"No Country" takes place in 1980, but the Remington 11-87 was manufactured until 1987. But you can’t blame the Coen Brothers for their choice – it’s a fantastic shotgun for the field or range, and the suppressor looks great.
If you'd like to take a look the Remington or any of the other firearms in the Hollywood Guns collection, come on down to the National Firearms Museum when the collection opens later this Spring. There's always room for more.
