    The main plus of the 1100 Competition is the factory overbored barrel. But the buttstock is NOT a trap stock. If you want to use it for trap you may wind up having to buy a trap stock. The 1100 Competition is more along the lines of a Sporting Clays gun.

    I would suggest aused Remington 11 11-87 trap gun that comes standard with a 30 inch trap barrel that is backbored and a trap stock. You can pick up one in great shape for around $600.00. I have two of these and love them. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. JM

    SirMissalott, quote: <i>"No remchokes w/competition ??"</i>

    The Competition model uses Pro-Bore chokes, not Rem-Chokes. They're larger in diameter because the bore is oversize.

    And unlike the factory backbored trap barrels, which step down before the muzzle so they can use (remarked) Rem-Chokes, the Pro-Bore does not step down.

    It's strange that Remington has not released the Pro-Bore model in an actual trap configuration.
