    I might have run into a good deal on a shotgun. I met a man who claims to have a Remington Model 1100 Tournament Trap. He said he bought it brand new in 1984 and hasnt even put the barrel on the reciever yet. He doesnt hunt or shoot and would like to sell. What would be a good price on a deal like this? I dont have a current blue book so maybe one of you could look it up for me. He said the box label says 1100 TA Tournament Trap. 30" Full choke barrel high grade walnut stock. Hope this helps. Thanks Guys

    The receiver should have the word "Trap" engraved (roll stamped) on its side. If it doesn't, it ain't a trap model. The stock should be straight comb or monte carlo. I don't recall if the barrels are stepped or not in 1984.

    As for price, most nice used 1100 trap guns go in the $550 to $650 range, depending on how they came from the factory, and depending whether they have desireable hardware added, like an adjustable comb, etc. New trap guns are in the $750+ range, so as prices rise on used, there is more resistence. If you can get it for $550 in LNIB condition, I think you'll be doing pretty good. Personally, I wouldn't go a lot higher than that, but that's me. LNIB 1100's that old don't grow on trees, and the machining is better than those made today.

    Blue book reads....Model 1100 TA TRAP 12g 30" barrel recoil pad on regular stock, avalible left or right hand Mfg 1979-86. 100% 410.00 Last MSR 570. Add 5% with montecarlo stock Add 50.00 for left handed. Me personally would have no problem paying 500 to 650 for this gun. He who wants it will pay the most. Now the Tournament Trap model is with the fancy wood full choke barrel special trap stock 1979 to 86. 100% 550.00 last MSR 675.00 Now to buy a new current 1100 trap would run you 800.00 or so.

    Most Trap-Ts are going for $500-$600 depending on appearance. Trap TBs $$50-$100 less and field grades you can still get under $400

    Trap Ts have the cut checkering and the diamond pattern on the forend. They also use the black bolt buffer discs used on the 1100 Magnum

    NIB Trap-Ts with fancy wood are becoming scarce. I wouldn't be surprised to find them selling above $600 to maybe $700 or more since they are more desirable than the hybrids made today that cost almost $1,000.


    The thing to watch for is INTERIOR condition of the receiver, barrel extension
    and overall condition. There are many 1100 trap guns that have had the hell shot out of them that still look nice outside, but inside show the effects of twenty plus years and tens of thousands of rounds and have worn out receiver rails, sloppy locking lug to bbl extension fit and possibly cracked bbl extensions. You have to look closely and know what you're looking for.

    This is not an issue for NIB guns, almost NIB, or guns that you simply know haven't seen much use. But beware of the pretty wood looking one sitting
    on the vendor rack with no box - it might be ready to fall apart if it was shot 100,000 times and no one replaced an action spring in it, but they wiped down the exterior every time, so it looks great.

    Some of the field guns are better deals. I buy used field guns for low cost that show little use, and convert them trap configuration and they're fine.

    There is someone on gunsamerica.com trying to sell Trap T for over $1,100!
    (maybe I should see if he'll give me $900 for mine?)
