    Is there a difference between a field 1100 receiver and a trap model receiver?
    If U put trap stock on field model will it be the same as a trap model?
    Also is there a difference in bbl as long as it says full with vent rib 30"?

    Thanks---sjb---

    An 1100 trap receiver is marked "trap", otherwise I don't think there is a difference.

    A 30" full choke vent rib field barrel won't have a mid bead. There are a a few other minor differences as well but someone else will need to chime in with the exact details.

    Start with a field receiver, install a trap stock and a trap barrel and you will for all practical purposes have a trap gun.

    Sissy is 100% right. Field and trap are same receiver except for the word "Trap" stamped on the side. Trap stock will convert field to a trap gun/receiver. Little to no difference in 30" barrels except for some "step rib" barrels which are slightly higher but work the same. My best trap scores with an 1100 came with a field 30" full with a "trap" stock installed. Regards, Ed

    For purposes of shooting clay targets, a 3 inch chamber vs. 2 3/4 inch is irrelevant.



    Your other question concerns choke. I believe the general rule of thumb is that a given choke designation for steel shot is one size larger than for lead. For example, if a barrel were marked full choke for steel it would be a modified choke if you were shooting lead.

    Any 30" 1100 barrel (preferably full choke) will work for trap, including ones with a 3" chamber; however, one with a 3" chamber may not reliably cycle 2 3/4" trap loads. In trap, the shooter may have to manually pull the bolt back to remove the single empty after firing. Regards, Ed

    Most trap barrels have a step rib. A factory trap barrel will have a deflector button(knock-down pin)installed on the edge of the receiver extension; it will also have two holes drilled on each side of the button to accomodate a wire loop shell catcher. POI is about the same for trap and field barrels...

    There were some flat rib barrels with choke markings that said "trap full".

    Very few 3 inch barrels will cycle target loads.

    How would a 30" 2-3/4 mag steel with tubes--vent rib with center bead work?

    Mangnum receivers (except for some very early models) are the same with the exception of the action sleeve, which is heavier on the magnum model.

    You can install a non-magnum barrel on a magnum receiver and it will work.

    But if you install a magnum barrel on a non-magnum receiver, because off the lighter action sleeve, the bolt velocity will be higher. This will result in more felt recoil and bolt/receiver battering.

    An exception (there always seems to be an exception with Remington) is a special 1100 barrel designed for steel shot. These were sold separately, and are now out of production. These barrels are designed to allow shooting of 3" steel shot loads when installed on a non-magnum receiver, because the bolt will not batter the receiver. But, you cannot shoot 3" lead loads, because this will result in battering.

    As far as making a trap gun out of a field gun, sure, it's been done plenty of times.
