    I was thinking they made an 1100 with a maple stock that the wood was white, Did I Imagine that or is it true?

    The 20 gauge lightweight had a maple stock. I never saw one that was white.

    After looking into it a bit I think it was a white laminated stock made around 2000 limited edition field models

    I used to have a model 58 with "sun grain" maple stock.

    This is not my gun, but a 58 with that style stock.

    The early 1100LW 20 gauge guns often with mahogany stocks (left over from the days when the 20 was built on the standard 12-gauge frame). Mahogany isn't as dark as walnut and often looked like blond maple. I have one of the early ones and the forearm is very light.

    Like Ian said, there was a limited run of 11-87's with maple stocks. Some were checkered, some were not. I could be wrong, but I believe that they were all field dimension stocks. Remington also made the 870 and 58 with the maple "Sungrain" stocks. They were also a limited run.I have a 1959 12 gauge skeet with the "Sungrain" stocks and the barrel serial numbered to the gun. It is a great shooter. I also have a 1960 (unfired) 870 20 gauge skeet with the "Sungrain" wood. I have owned this gun for many years and bought it with an extra 26" IC barrel which is still in cosmoline in its original box.These guns are a far cry from the new plastic and camo guns....although I guess that they have their place in gun history as well!

    Shoot Well! Jim

    The 1187 maple buttstock was in the Remington parts catalog for many years, but the forends were not.
