    And if you buy it I just happen to know a guy that has a 26" vented rem choke barrel that enables you to shoot 3" steel....hint, hint...

    Nice guns with straight stocks very nice for grouse and woodcock if it has an open choke. Not sure other barrels will fit but they might. Pretty much a upland gun I wouldn't want to use for waterfowl unless jumpshooting a small creek as they are easy to carry. Good luck.:D

    I've got a pair of either first or second year production 1100s (1965-ish). I put a Remington rem choke/steel shot barrel on one for duck hunting and it fit like a glove. And that was on an old shotgun. I can't imagine you'd have a problem fitting a newer barrel on it for the versatility factor.

    I too, am the proud owner of a 1963 Remington 1100 with a 28" ventilated bbl. I bought it at an estate sale from the owners son who claimed his dad died before he even put a box of shells through it. It was the last day of the sale and he wanted $300. I offered $200 and he reluctantly let me have it.

    It is a beautiful gun and the first to use a gas operation system that actually reduced recoil. It was a very popular gun at competitions and over 4 million were sold. Today, a new one can fetch as much as $1695.

    I'm not sure of a collector value since so many were produced.

    If I remember correctly, a 870 special field was slightly different with the barrel than a normal 870. That might be the case with the 1100 as well. I would check that out before getting a new barrel for one.
