    Has anyone bought the Hastings 1100 trap barrel from shotgun sports? I'm thinking about trying one.

    any comments appreciated.

    thanks

    I have a couple of them and find that they are target crushing machines. A bit pricy now, but nevertheless a great barrel.

    They are awsome. pricey is a relative thing I guess as if you wanted to have a 1/2 inch rib added to your barrel it would cost 300.00 dollars plus freight to do it right. The Hastings barrel comes with it already done! Jeff

    Just take note, that if you are going to install it on a "Classic Trap", you will need to have the extractor cut widened for the 11-87 extractor it uses. You may also have to modify the forearm wood, since the barrel is not really a "target" contour like the original. Be sure to gauge the barrel as well. A friend ended up with a standard bore of .729" instead of the advertised .740". He put extra money into the barrel for the wire shell catcher, extractor slot widening, and installed some sights on the rib. He got a replacement barrel with the .740 bore and had to do it all over again. I think they have resolved that issue, but you never know.
