What is the equivalent length for an O/U?
So exactly what are you asking?
(Can't be sure about the metric system, all I know is the US way to measure things, same number could be different overseas.)
A pump action or semi-auto receiver might add an additional 4" to the overall length of the shotgun. So an O/U with 26" barrels is going to be about 4" shorter overall than your Remington Model 1100. I'm guessing this is the answer to your question.
Sure, overseas we have different imperial units for different occasions - being a formal inch, or a casual one, just to name a few. An Oxford inch, a Derby inch, a Brogue Oxford one... It's complicated in the Old Continent.
I believe that Sbwaters is asking about pointability and shootability of the said shotguns. In that case a 28" - 30" O/U will roughly be an equivalent.
I didn’t know how best to ask the question.
I prefer 26" barrels too which seems to put us in the minority.
I like a 26" double or O/U, and I like the length of Auto-5 very much too. I'm not much of a long-barrel guy, especially so on a pump or semi-auto.
