    1100 12ga barrels have long tangs. What exactly does the barrel say on it?

    The only short tang 1100 that I can recall is the lightweight LW-20 20ga built on a 28ga action. These had a short tang. They were superseded by the LT-20, which had a long tang.

    I'm wondering if this barrel was machined to fit a short tang Remington, such as a pre-1100 semi-auto, or even an 870?

    Are you sure that this is not an 870 barrel?

    An 1100/11-87 barrel would have a much longer mounting bracket where the gas is bled out of the barrel.

    That looks like an 870 barrel. It has a short tang. The barrel hanger is too short to be the 1100 gas chamber, it is one diameter inside, whereas the 1100 is stepped, and in pic #3 there appears to be a detent ball on the muzzle side of the barrel hanger for retaining the forend cap. So it appears to be an 870 light contour field barrel.

    It's NOT an 1100 or 11-87 barrel. Most likely for an 870 if it's stamped Remington. They offered a 26" barrel in various forms, with a few being "Magnum" designations. Might be what you are looking at.
