    I need a replacement barrel for a mid 1970’s production Remington 1100 20 gauge. All I can find is LT-20 barrels.

    Will that work? If not is there a source for barrel I need ?

    I’m guessing your 1100 has the larger 12 gauge receiver?

    Not sure. It’s just marked 1100.

    Very likely the standard weight. Post a picture of the barrel when it is out of the receiver.

    I am pretty sure it’s standard weight. If so, are barrels available? Need 20 gauge.

    I know a guy that might have one but it would probably be a slug barrel. He’s going to check I’ll let you know.

    I have bought a couple of barrels off Gunbroker for my Winchester 1200s in 12 and 20ga so I could shorten them.. My bud bought one for his 870 off of there also.

    If the serial number ends in N or X it is a standard weight built on the 12 gauged size receiver.
    If the serial number ends in K or U it is either and LW or LT lightweight. The LT barrels have a long barrel tang and the LWs have a short tang and the ejector is riveted into the receiver like an 870.

    I have the same problem. I need an 1100 bbl for my 1100 Skeet. It has the heavy receiver but a skeet bbl with larger gas ports and Remington says I cant use heavier loads without changing the bbl. Doesn't make sense when I have the heavy receiver.

    Of course it does. You don't have the "heavy" receiver, you have the 12 gauge sized receiver. But, that advice applies to the 12 gauge Skeet barrels, not the unmodified 20 gauge ones. The 12 gauge skeet barrels had 0.086" gas ports, but the 20 gauge ones had the standard sized 0.076" ports. But, do check your port size, because lots of mouse fart load shooters drilled them out.

    At least 3 different barrels in thr early 70’s. For the small receiver guns there is the LW in the very early 70’s and the LT after that. The L W barrels are pretty hard to find.
