    I bought this Remington 34" 12ga trap barrel some time ago and put it on one of my field 1100,s to test fire It, it worked ok so I set it back in my gun room. last night I shot a round of trap with it and shot a 23-25, the two I missed were not the barrels fault. I did get a few commits about just breaking the birds with the barrel.

    *sigh* Another one of my youthful dreams realized by someone else. Those were the shizzle back in the day. I had to be satisfied with my 30" Full. Course now I shoot Trap with a 28" on my 870. :confused:

    a nice looking levvinhunnerd.
    Whatever you do, dont try to shoot a dove or sporting clays with it.

    It says TRAP ONLY right on it.

    I had one for my 870TB but could never shoot it well. I also had a problem walking up the hill to our trap fields stubbing it in the dirt. Once. They sell for premium bucks around here.

    I bought my 1100 Trap for a song from a good friend. He bought it from an old police rangemaster friend who swore you couldn't miss a bird with it. (His intention was to give it to his 16 year old daughter for quail hunting in the mountains.) Needless to say, after one half-day trip of her (and then him) lugging that target gun around at 6,000 feet he was thrilled to trade for one of my lightweight 20's and some $$.

    The 1100 Trap is a sweet shooter for sure, I really appreciate how it swings on the clay target range. I'm glad you're able to put that extra swing weight to good use as well!

    Stay safe!

    Yeah, a long barreled M1100 is just about Shangri La for trap as far as I'm concerned. Still on my bucket list, although now I'll have to buy the whole rig as I've sold my old clays gun, an early 1100 "standard" retrofitted with a Rem Choke 28" to an up and coming youth shooter for a bargain. He "borrowed" it last week and shot his personal best 23...twice in a row, and more importantly he knows where he missed the 4 clays. He and his father immediately went to work on talking me out of it. I'm satisfied and do well with my poor man's single barrel, a CZ612 trap, but it just doesn't feel as sweet as the old 1100 although the 32" ramped barrel and MC stock have ticked up my average a tad. Add in a long trap barrel and proper stock, and I'd be the bane of the $5K+ OU crowd, more than I already am. To the OP, pick up a walnut or hardwood "deer" buttstock with the Monte Carlo profile and shave it down as needed, you'll have a real clay grinder on your hands.

    I found out just how sweet an 1100 was when I had a spine infection and had to wear a turtle shell brace. My 870 kicked too much but the 1100 was a pussycat. I had to saw out a bit of the brace to shoulder it and that puzzled my surgeon. I told him why and he just shook his head. He said, "I guess if it doesn't hurt, have fun." I now have three, a 20 with mod and skeet barrels, two 12s and a bunch of barrels including i.c., mod, full, skeet and one with a polychoke (ugh). I use one for skeet and my granddaughter shoots Junior league with the 20.

    A Rem 1100 is a fine gun, but I prefer the 870 just for mechanical preferences. I had an 1100 for skeet at first (way back in 1969) but found an 870 12 gauge 26" VR IC choke with a beautiful shallow drop at the heel so I could see the entire top of the barrel/rib. Because the 870 is manually operated one never has to have a live round in the chamber with a loaded mag. To me that is an extra safety concern. If one is using the 1100 for trap or skeet that is not much of a concern, loading only one or two shells (single/doubles), but bird hunting is a different matter, to me. Federal law allows three shells when waterfowl/migratory bird (woodcock) hunting, and most guys I have hunted with only got off 2 rounds on a pass of birds, including me.

    Some of the 1100's I have shot were not that sweet on recoil at the cheek because of the severe (3") drop in the factory stock at the heel. Just my experience.

    All 1100s built prior to the Sporting models (3/16" longer pull) , except trap guns, had 2-1/2" DAH, 1-1/2" DAC, and 14" LOP. The standard 870 was the same except for 1-5/8" DAC.
