    Post pics of your remington 1100s. If you will post pics of the barrel where it labels the shell lengths and tell what you put through it. Sorry about the fuzzy ones.

    Heres mine. I use 2 3/4 and wanna see about going to 3"

    I wouldn't advise using 3" shells in that barrel if that is what you are thinking.

    Here is one of mine. 2 3/4" Classic Trap 12ga

    The other is a Sporting LT20 also 2 3/4"

    Either usually gets the bargain stuff I buy in volume for the trap range. Never had a jam that I remember. Keep 'em clean and a new $.02 oring about once a year.

    Here's mine.

    It came into the shop last month by a non-gun guy who inherited it from his father and wanted to get it out of the house. He consigned it for $250.00 and needless to say, it never made it to the used rack. An early 80's, 12 guage 2 3/4" field gun, it came with the RS 18" slug barrel & 26" VR barrel shown, in addition to the original 28" VR barrel. All three barrels have been professionally threaded for Remchokes. It has been lovingly maintained, and except for a hairline crack in buttstock, in great condition (the synthetic stock currently installed being temporary, pending repair and replacement of the original wood). I speculate the original owner set it up for use on clays, birds, and game. If it could only talk....

    It doesn't like promo Winchester ammo, but has no problems with Federal or Remington promo ammo. It proved itself on the skeet field with the 26" barrel last Saturday, with an initial 23 bird round followed by a pair of 25s. I intend to get out (maybe with the geezers if they will have me) and wring it out the 28" barrel on trap. I'll also tote it out on my next pheasant hunt. The slug barrel is langiappe, as I don't hunt deer anymore, but can do HD duty if needed.

    I like this gun a lot and intend to continue to put it to the use it deserves.

    The 3 inch shell requires a barrel chambered for the 3" and is marked as such.

    The 3 inch chambered barrel will have a single gas port and will fire 2&3/4" heavy field loads up through the 3 inch magnum rounds.

    The barrel you have on your gun now is a 2&3/4" marked barrel which has 2 gas ports and will shoot fairly light through magnum 2&3/4" shells only.

    Both barrels will fit on your receiver .

    If you go to a 3" barrel and shoot anything but 3" steel, Remington recommends changing the action sleeve to the magnum version, too. The only two parts different between 3" and 2-3/4" are the action sleeves and the barrels. The only part Remington does not sell is the 12 gauge magnum action sleeve.

    Yup, trap doubles.

    Reviving an old tradition of the Geezers,John. The first Friday of each month means we do a round of trap doubles.

    Bring a gun that shoots twice and 50 shells.

    We start around 11.

    My grandfather gave me this when I was 17 and while I'd like a nice SxS or O/U in 16 ga, I don't really ever see myself getting another 12 ga. We put a synthetic stock on it to avoid cutting the wood down to fit at the time but I went back to the original walnut as soon as it fit me. It wears a fixed 26in skeet barrel and has an additional 28in modified barrel. That last pic is for you Dave, and it's the only place where the bluing is worn.
