    I reciently perchased a used 28 gauge 1100 at a very reasonable price. It has a fixed full choke barrel on it. Would you recommend trying to have rem chokes intalled on the present barrel or buying a new barrel with rem chokes to make it more addaptable to different shooting situations?

    Send it to Briley and get their screw choke set. SK, LM, IM. Your little gun will do it all.

    Mine also came with a full choke . I bought a Imp Cyl. Barrel & I think I have all the bases covered or at least good enough. I will admit I like Fixed Chokes over Choke Tubes. Have fun, I have with my 1100 28ga.

    Can you buy a Remchoke barrel for more or less than having choke tubes installed?
    If the cost is roughly the same, I'd rather have two barrels than one.

    I wouldn't be suprised if Briley or whomever you choose would only machine in their own thread style and be happy to sell you $50 chokes rather than $20 Remchokes. Just sayin'.

    Cheaper to get chokes installed.

    This all depends on what you will use it for. When I shoot sporting clays with my 28ga 1100 I use a fixed modified choke. When I shoot birds I use skeet sometimes and full sometimes.

    If you want to swap, I would swap you either a modified choke 1100 barrel or a fixed skeet for your full choke.Jeff

    I would sell that barrel and buy a 27 inch remchoke barrel from the 1100 sporting 28 with the extended remchokes. I don't think you can install remchokes as there is not enough meat in the barrel. They usually install
    thinwalls.

    The extended rem chokes are all made by Briley for the 28ga guns. That 27 inch thing just depends on how well and how long you have owned 25 inch barrels. I bought a new 1100 sporting 28ga 27 incher as soon as they came out and I couldn't hit anything with it. I wound up selling it and buying another 25 inch barrel.

    I have shot at least 250,000 rounds through 25 inch 870 and 1100 28ga guns. I have no trouble hitting with them.Jeff

    Why not just shoot it for a while?

    Why not just shoot it for a while? Because it's a fixed full choke. Not exactly what the average guy who is shooting 3/4 of an oz of shot wants.

    another cheap option would be to have a gunsmith open up your barrel to ic or light mod. this will probably pattern better than a screw in choke and work well
    for most sporting targets. Usually costs around 25 bucks
