Headline: 

The Remington 1100 is a semi automatic, gas-operated shotgun, popular among clay target shooters and waterfowlers.

The Remington 1100 was designed by Wayne Leek and formally named the Remington model 1100. The shotgun was introduced in 1963 as the premier successor to John Browning's Auto-5. All models of the Remington 1100 are gas operated, with a unique mechanism that significantly reduces recoil. The Remington 1100 is still currently in production as of 2007, and is consistently the best selling self loading shotgun in United States history.

Different Gauges Introduction
12 gauge (1963)
16 gauge (1964)
20 gauge (1969)
.410 bore (1969)
Matched Pair in .410 bore & 28-gauge (1970)

Uses in Skeet and Trap Shooting
When the Remington 1100 was first introduced in 1963, the Remington 1100 was an instant success especially with Skeet shooters. Particularly popular was the gas-operated action of the model 1100 as it significantly reduced felt recoil.

The Remington 1100 is also a very popular Trap gun, special variants with Monte Carlo stocks and high ribs are available. As with numerous other semi automatic shotguns a standard shell catcher can be used to fully avoid spent shells striking others on the squad when shooting Trap.

The drastically reduced recoil of the Remington 1100 makes it extremely popular with smaller framed, first time, and Women skeet shooters as well.

Numerous parts of the 1100 were and are interchangeable with other Remington shotguns model 11-87 and 870.

I have the 20 Gauge Light Weight(LW) version. It solves the weight problem.

One time experiance with the piece, my brother bought a 20 ga for his wife in the late 80's and my only memory of the one time i took it out with him during dove season was the lack of recoil.. That and the fact i couldn't shoot anything with it.. But promise you that was the operator and not the gun.. I've said in the past im not that hot with shotguns..

Always qualified well with them, but that had nothing to do with "wing" shooting.. I went thru half a box of clay pigeons one time with out hitting one of the foolish things.. Disgusting.. They break when they hit the ground to..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I think it's a great shotgun. My father in law won one in 12 gauge in a raffle, which really shoots great. With standard bird loads, it doesn't have enough recoil to piss on. He died a few years ago, and my brother in law inherited it, and says that he loves it more every time he takes it out. BTW, my brother in law is so meticulous that he even cleans the gas system after every time he shoots it.

1100 Competition

Competition Trap only model 1100 has become my favorite. Had to glue on a shell catcher though. 30" barrel with 5 chokes. Modified is like anyone elses Full. Also broke off the adjustable comb once, but epoxied it back in place and it's holding. Cold weather shooting and stuffing it into the safe may have been factors. For doubles or sporties, it can't be beat.
