It was first produced by Remington in 1987 .The 11-87 is a gas operated semi-automatic (autoloading) shotgun, meaning that some of the high pressure gases from the burning gun powder are diverted through two small holes in the under side of the barrel. It is used by the United States Marine Corps in Battlefield 2.

In Battlefield 2, the M11-87 is issued to the USMC Engineer Kit. A hit with this pump shotgun can kill in one shot up to medium-short range, and multiple targets can be damaged with each shot. In addition, there is no accuracy benefit (or detriment) for the different stances, though the zoom feature which stands in place of ironsights will reduce recoil.
However, recoil is non-sequitur for pump-action shotguns, since the barrel is "centered" after a pump, though the crosshairs will jump between shots and need to be re-centered on the target. Its spread makes the weapon both inaccurate and ineffective outside of medium range, relegating the user to a close-range combat role.
In addition, it has a long reload time, low tube capacity, and the time between each shot is relatively long.
