    I am looking at buying a 12ga Nickel 1187 sporting clays. I believe the receiver and barrel are both nickel and the barrel is ported. I can not seem to find any info online about this gun, or even any pictures. I really like the looks of the gun and it has nice wood, but more info would be nice. Does anyone have any info, ads, reviews, pics, etc about this gun? any idea of what is worth? If so please email me brian442@yahoo.com

    Brian,

    I believe the gun you're looking at is the 1187NP SC. I have the same gun and when I reach for one gun to shoot all the games at our club - that's the one.

    Gorgeous wood on mine and the nickel receiver is unusual. My barrel is blued, not nickel so check that again. Mine has a 30" ported barrel in light contour and I got a set of extended chokes for it so I can shoot everything.

    Very rare to see this model at the range, mine is the only one i have seen but i know of others that have the same gun and they all seem to give it a thumbs up.

    I keep looking for a 26" light contour barrel for shooting skeet but so far no luck - i may have to order it from a Remington dealer.

    Enjoy - that is an excellent gun.

    These were the 11/87 SCNP, or Sporting Clays, Nickeled, Ported. They were available in 28" or 30" models. They typically had very good wood and were good shooters, but did not have the gas compensating valve on them. This gun should never be shot with anything heavier than the 3 1/4 X 1 1/4 Super Pigeon load, and had the 2 3/4" chamber.

    Is it possible that is has a nickel barrel? I am pretty sure that it was not blued, but I will have to check for sure. I know it had porting. I wish I could find some kind of article about this gun.

    The receiver had some type of nickel plating, the barrel was blue. The gun was discontinued in 2001 or 2002 and the remaining inventory was dumped on the Remington dealers who were selling the gun for around $ 700.
    A very similar looking, but much improved gun, is the new Remington 1100 Competition model, which sells new for around $ 1,200.
    Neither of these guns ever became popular with sporting clays shooters, who
    shoot mostly Beretta and Browing automatics.
    I had one and sold it for $ 500. That's about the most you should pay for a good used one.

    I always thought they were fantastic shooter, with very little recoil and little or no muzzle flip.

    As an old Remington Registered Gunsmith, I like their autos and pumps (shotguns).

    I have one of these in 28" sitting in my safe. It has a nickel receiver, blued and ported barrel along with great wood. Excellent handling qualities with the shorter forearm.

    I just bought the gun and it has a remington nickel plated, 30", rem choke, light contour, ported barrel. Is this a factory setup or did someone change the barrel?

    It's an aftermarket nickel job. Can you post pics of it?

    Dear Brian:

    Thank you for visiting Remington Country. Yes, we did offer the Model 11-87 in a Sporting gun with a nickel barrel in 28" and 30 " barrels.

    Customer (Brian Meyerhofer) - 02/05/2008 02:28 PM
    Did remington ever make a nickel barrel for the 1187? If so, what lengths were available? and are nickel barrels still available?

    Thanks


    Brian Meyerhofer
