"Tactical" 1100

  1. I stopped in at one of my favorite small gun shops, and spotted this Remington 1100 hiding amongst a bunch of shotguns.




    In awesome shape, and already kinda "tactical".

  2. Sweetness. Especially with the +2 already attached.

    Whatdya pay, if'n I can ask?

  3. And have ya shot it yet? I hear some of those can be finicky with certain shells, loads, and weights.
  4. Not yet. As long as she works well with buck, that's all I care about.

  7. Someone noticed!!

    Being a southpaw, I always get pretty excited when I come across anything that's for a left hander.
  8. Went right by me! Must have been the angle of the light or the speed of it or something... :cool:
  9. When you are a lefty, some finds are like miniature Holy Grails.
  10. I have an 1100 with about 10,000 rounds through it. The only time it failed me is when the extractor broke after about 7000 rounds. It has shot everything from light skeet loads through 2 3/4" magnum buckshot.

    Just keep the recoil tube and trigger group clean and change the gas seals once a year and you will be good to go. I can't tell if you have the oversized latch on that or not but if you don't I think they are a great option. I keep mine on all the time and really like it.
  11. I'll have to learn how to change the seals. I've never owned an 1100 before this one.

    I've got 2 1100s.
    One a 1972 model (standard) and a 1983 (Magnum).
    The '83 Magnum, I bought new.
    I have shot that grand old scattergun since new and finally changed the O-ring seal two years ago.
    I've shot this shotgun more than any other shotgun in my stable.
    This is my absolute favorite shotgun!

    Here's my beloved 1100 Magnum -

    Changing the O-ring seal is as easy as taking the barrel off, sliding the O-ring off the magazine tube, and reversing the procedure!
    (Cleaning the shotgun helps, too!)
