That's my duck hunting gun for most of the season. Late season on might switch to the 1187 12ga when the big ducks are moving through but I still have the 1100 with me and use it if the ducks are decoying well.

I love mine also, it's a 78 model that started life as a 28" mod choke but has briley thin walls in it now. It also has adjustable comb as I shoot trap with it often and it was originally a very flat shooter. They are very good guns and very easy to appreciate!

I have a 16 gauge 1100 Field model with a vent rib and screw in chokes . I found it NIB and changed the hard butt pad to a Sporing Butt Pad and it now matches my other 1100 Sporting Models in 12/20/28 and .410 . I enjoy shooting it, though I do not shoot it very oftern.

Mine started out as a very plain 1978 model with mismatched wood, 28" barrel and a modified choke. I bought it new back in 1991 or so from a gun shop in New Hampshire.

Now it has a Timney Trigger, matching stock and forend (Midwest Gunworks), lengthened forcing cone, ported barrel and Briley Thin Walls.

It has been used since 1993 for 95% of my hunting. I do use it starting in September for sporting clays and continue shooting it for sporting and hunting until the hunting season is finished in January.

Nice gun, no recoil.......and I don't even care that it is built on a 12 gauge frame.

The older models were great---bought one of the newer "16 Field" on the 12 gauge frame--sent back to Remmy 3x---finally sold it at auction Embarassed

Not sure if there has ever been a better shooting shotgun for the masses than the 1100.

If you can't find an 1100 to suit don't pass up a good Model 11. They do a fine job at the range emptying 1 oz. factory loads that can be reloaded for your light doubles, or as reliable and easy shooting field gun. This one which I bought from a friend in Maine for $185 literally carried me through my 40's in the field. It has taken multiple species in four states while supplying that dose of nostalgia you get carrying an old 16 gauge. Lots of much fancier shotguns came and went because nothing worked any better, and most fell short in one way or another.

I saw an early 70's vintage 1100 16ga on GB not long ago for about $900. That seemed a tad high to me, but it was in excellent shape. Question to you guys who have them, are the forearms thinner than those on the 12ga 1100? I have the 12ga 1100, and find it a bit bulky for my taste, but if the 16 is narrower, I'd be very interested in one. Do they handle 1oz game and target loads @1165 fps ok?

No they are same on the outside
And you can use 12 gauge forewood
on the 12, 16 and 20 Standard Weight guns

Yes, they handle most commercial loads if they are
maintained properly.

Thx for getting back Mike. What about those Remy model 11ís? Are they narrower in the forearm than the 1100?

The forearm on my 16ga M11 is definitely more narrow than the 12ga 1100! And earlier SW16 may be more narrow but I Dad has shot M1100 trap guns for over 50 years and to me they are like swinging a big log.
