Modified my Remington 1100 for 3-gun

Since I like to do things the hard way I decided to try running my old 1100 Magnum in 3-gun competitions. I installed the Dave's Metal Works EZ loader (which is very cool), a 10-shot mag extension, and modified a plastic forend to allow more and smoother access to the loading port, in case I ever figure out how to load twins.

I have a sidesaddle coming. The barrel is 30 inches, full choke, 2 3/4", non VR, which is not ideal. But it works so far.




Anyone have a line on a VR 22 or 24" remchoke barrel, or even one that's been cut down to about that length, Please LMK.

Thanks!

Thanks from 3Gunnah and Dougboffl

I got one that is cut down pretty short around 20 inches. But it's a 2 3/4 chamber and it's threaded. It started out as a 28 inch fixed modified and was cut down to shoot quail. Mine is the vented rid with a nice bead. I would consider trading for a fixed choke imp cyl or mod.

Wasted ammo is online now

You will like the 1100 it's not a bad gun for 3 gun at all. I used to run the 1100 tactical which was a factory 22 inch gun with extension from Remington. You are going to want to shorten the arms on that easy loader just a little. Enough so your finger or thumb won't be trapped if you stick it in too far when loading shells.

I've been running my 11-87 in 3 gun shoots. Where I shoot the shotgun targets are fairly close so I use a cylinder bore choke tube and 9 shot. I did get the extension so it holds 10 :). I like that over sized ez loader I think I will get one. Still need to practice my reloads.

My 1100 is the only shotgun that I used for three gun, set up similiar to yours but with a Choate pistol grip stock, worked for me.

Alas, my "runnin and gunnin" days are far behind me (mid '80's) but I still have my 1100.

Not the best pic but it's too long to get the whole thing in proper-like.
