I have a Remington Sportsman, model 11. It's 3+1, remake of a Browning Auto-5. I've done some mulling around, and found some popular mods to this firearm, namely a 2 peice shell lifter that allows you to load a shell without pressing the bolt release, and a magazine extension. It came with a weaver choke brake on it, but no choke tubes. Weaver went out of business long ago from what I understand, and the replacement tubes are non-existent. I bought this gun origionally, for skeet. Without the tubes, it works rather effectively for just trap shooting. Without the chokes, it's hard to use for skeet, once they get out there. Here's where the question comes in. Should I cut the weaver choke off, and have it bored for a different choke tube (thinking remchokes), or chop it down to 18", and put a mag extension on it, to use it for IDPA DMG 3 gun matches? Honestly, I'd prefer the DMG route, but would go with whatever would be easier. Reguardless, I'm wanting to make loading easier, so the 2 peice shell lifter is huge, if I can actually find one. Not having luck. Also, mine doesn't use the large knurled nut on the end of the magazine tube, it uses a much smaller one, that goes through the for-end, so sticking an 870 mag extension on it, doesn't work as easily as it would with other models, so I think I'd need to change my mag tube, which I've read can be quite a bear. What would you guys do, chop it up for DMG, or use it for trap? I like the gun, so selling it to buy a different gun isn't going to happen, likely. At the moment, it doesn't fulfill either role (skeet, DMG) rather well, I'd like it to be a designated gun for one task or the other. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
