    Does remington still make the 1187 premier trap model? And if not are they making a replacement model?Also was wondering how many people like shooting these for competition trap. I'm getting recoil sensitive and was thinking of switching to an autoloader. Thanks, Dale

    No, Remington 1100 Classic Trap would be your closest option. I wouldn't delay, at the rate Remington is cutting offerings, this may not be around too much longer.

    I have shot an 11-87 trap for over 20 years now and mine is still crushing targets and works great! Recoil is very tolerable. I resize ALL my reloads and have had great success with this gun! I have not seen any around for sale, good luck! Hope you find one!

    dale58, where do you live? I happen to know whre there are 2 or 3 Remington 1100 Classic Trap models for sale right now. All are brand new and look great! I saw them yesterday. By the way, I recently sold one myself. Great gun, but stock wasn't right for me. Overall, I think you would be very happy with an 1100.

    11-87's are Remingtons, at least thats what the writing on mine says.

    I am still shooting my 11/87 Premier Trap.

    I bought it from he original owner in 1988 who bought it new in 1987. He wanted to shoot games and the 11/87 Trap is not regulated for anything but target grade ammunition.

    Mine has the 30" over bored step rib barrel and three choke tubes; trap full, trap extra full and trap super full.

    It handles everything from 1 oz 1150 fps loads to 1 1/4 1220 fps pigeon loads.

    I love mine. Never missed a beat in 12 years. I shoot 3 dram and nitro loads no problem. They seem to have gone up significantly in value the last 2 years due to scarcity. They made some early with fixed full choke but most are the backbored model with the special calibrated remchokes. Most are Monte Carlo but there are also a few straight trap stocks out there too .Keep looking. You won't be disappointed. Remington shifted gears a few years ago and all target guns are now 1100's again. The 1187's are now all hunting variety. Basicially the same gun though. 1187's have a stainless mag tube and the gas compensating system on the magnum barrels.

    Has anyone that owns the 11-87 trap felt the forearms on them are weak? I have had 2 and the forearm cracked on both of them and yes I was just shooting target loads

    Does the 1100 trap shoot the same as an 11-87 ?
    I have Both but have never shot the 1100 as it is a back up in case the 11-87 breaks.

    I have both. I like my 1187 better. the step rib and monte carlo stock seem to fit me better. To me it also shoots a little softer. At first I thought it was the backbored barrel. I started shooting my older 1100 with the same 1187 barrel sometimes and it does not feel as soft as the 1187. The 1100 is not a magnum receiver. Some guys swear the magnum receivers shoot softer becauce of the heavier parts. One thing about 1100's is there are alot of variations over the 50 or so years ...step rib, non step rib, later model with the lower rib and lower comb etc etc. I like the older step rib 1100's. I would take an 1187 hands down over the newer version.

    oh yes...forend cracking issue. I have had 3 sets of 1187 trap wood. 2 on 1187 traps and one set I use on one of my 1100's. Have never had a crack. I shoot alot of 3 dram loads too in Buddy Games. I have always installed the gas coller
    with the trap barrel even though there are so side gas compensation ports on it. I have heard that some guys leave it off thinking it is not necessary. This may make the forend come back around the receiver further and possibly stress the wood? Not sure. But all I know is that I use it and have never had a crack on 3 forends.

    ps, I don't see alot of guys looking for 1187 forends on here. But I do see alot of older 1100 press checkering field forends for sale with cracked or repaired forends. Of course there are millions 1100's out there.

    Right after my Dad bought our 11-87, the fore arm broke after a few rounds of trap. We sent it in to Remington, and they sent out a new one, even matched up the wood grains for a close match to the stock.

    I just bought one of the new 1100 synthetic competitions. I only shot 75 rounds with it and could not hit anything. I had the comb set up the way it came from the factory with all (5) spacers in it. I took all but 1 out and will try again Saturday. If it things don't improve I'll be going back to my old 11-87 !

    1100 classic trap is lighter than 11-87 due to barrel contour and flat rib. the stock is lower to match rib and seems to shoot about 50/50 like a field gun. the step rib of the earlier 1100 trap or the 11-87 trap shoots a little higher, maybe 60/40 or so. also, the 11-87 has a stainless mag tube, wish they had continued that to the new 1100's. never had a forend crack so I can't comment on that. both are good guns, I would go for the 11-87 given the choice with the older trap next and the classic trap a close third. if you shoot in so cal I would be happy to let you shoot any of mine and you can make up your own mind.

    The synthetic competition is not a "trap" gun. Not that you can't shoot trap with a flat shooting field/sporting/skeet gun, but if you normally shoot a 60/40 or 70/30 "trap" gun my guess is you may be way under. I would pattern both your guns to get an idea of what comb adjustments are needed on the 1100 to put it where your 1187 hits. I had bought an 1100 competition barrel a while back for my son to use on his 1187 sporting because he wanted a heavier longer barrel. He could not hit diddily with it. I put it on my 1100 sporting and I could'nt hit diddily with it either! I soon found him a 30 " 1187 sporting barrel and he crushes targets with it like he was born with it in his hands. We never did pattern the comp barrel but for curiousity sake I wish I know where it was putting the shot.

    dale58,

    The new 1100 Classic Traps that I saw were at Hyatt's Gun Shop in Charlotte, NC. They could ship one to your local FFL for you. Their contact info. can be found on the web.

    The only thing that made the 11-87 Premier Trap such a target crunching machine is the 11-87 Target barrel that it came with. This is the barrel that is backbored at the factory. Find yourself one of these barrels and put it on your 11-87 or 1100 receiver with a trap stock and you are good to go. FWIW. JM
