    Due to illness and recoil problems, I am thinking about putting together an 1100 for trap. Looking at the Jack West stock and was inquiring about the barrel. Which do you guys think is the best barrel, the older fixed choke or the newer tubed/overbored? Thanks for you insight.

    Definitely the fixed full choke barrel. I put one together with an old full choke barrel. It's the perfect combination. The Probore barrel is too heavy.

    You might want to check the Remington web site and look at the Remington 1100 Comp with the fiber glass stock.

    Another possibility is an 1187 with the factory backbored step rib barrel.

    SF SGM...I have an 1100 that I bought in 1963 that has a .745 back bored barrel. So...look for an old one and measure the barrel. Tom B

    Good luck on the 1100 synthetic competition. I have been trying to find a new one for several months.

    I put the Jack West stock on my 1100 with 30 inch rem choke barrel. Ran a 50 straight the first time I fired it. The bump buster really reduces the recoil.

    I would go with the fixed choke barrel. Saying that I would shoot the barrel first. 1100s were real popular trap guns in the 60s and 70s, and a lot of guys had their barrels worked on to get that edge.

    I started shooting with an 1100 and will probably end up shooting one. To me the recoil is minimual.
