    Any info available for these? Anything special as compared to a regular hastings barrel? What would the value be?

    I think Leo shot 1100s with the factory barrel not a Hastings.

    The barrel in question is a Hastings barrel with "Leo Harrison III" engraved on the side by the chamber.

    Maybe he had his name engraved on it so he could pick out his gun in the gun rack.

    Shotgun Sports magazine had adds selling a "signature Leo Harrison" Hastings barrel. Long time ago.

    Pretty sure Leo shot a Hastings higher rib baller along the way and they made barrels with his name on them. They were just Hasting Trap barrels with his name however they were French made and of a hi quality with a slightly higher rib. Shame they are no longer available great barrel for the money.

    Shotgun Sports used to sell them for $375 plus shipping. They had a bigger inside diameter than the other Hastings in addition to the higher rib. It used the CTIII choke tubes. JM

    This barrel is not the high rib that Shotgun Sports had. Looks like a regular wadlock barrel (dunno if it had the straight rifling or not), w/ screw chokes, and Leo Harrison III machined into the side with gold filling.

    I asked this same question a few months back. I bought a used 1100 trap and the seller had the extra "Leo" barrel that he was willing to sell with it. What I do know is it's a smooth bore and takes some version of Hastings chokes. It's also a little shorter than the original 30" barrel. I need to check the spelling of leo's name cause I still miss far too many hard rights and I had assumed this was a "guaranteed" shooter.

    Phil Frigon was the concept originator.
