A couple of comments: The 1100 Sporting 12 is an excellent sporting clays gun. When they first came they had best looking dark figured wood you can imagine, and it seems this is one of those guns. I think if you will check you will find that the barrel is 28" not 30" since I don't believe they ever made this gun with a 30" barrel. The gun balances perfectly with a 28" barrel.( They made the 1100 Competition with a 30" barrel which in my opinion makes the gun muzzle heavy.A Beretta 391 balances well with a 30" barrel) Good price, too.

I'll bet they're putting the overbored Competition barrels and chokes on the Sporting model. They never listed the gun in the Remington catalog with anything but a 28" barrel. That's a nice added bonus for somebody buying the less expensive Sporting and getting a barrel from the more expensive Competition. In the 70's the 1100 was the gun of choice by trap and skeet shooters. Sporting clays hadn't been invented yet. Of course, we all know that Leo Harrison and Daro Handy were 1100 shooters -Daro still is, I think. But Beretta and Browning decided to sponsor shooters, and Remington decided not to. Now Leo shoots a Beretta single barrel, and to get it as soft shooting as an 1100 he had to put on a $4000 Stock Lock
