    I have a Rem. 11-87 Premier Trap, would a 11-87 light contour barrel fit on this gun? It has a 30 inch 2 3/4 Target barrel on the gun that I believe came with the gun when it was new. I would like to get a 28 in. or 26 in. barrel to put on the gun to make it easier for my son to handle.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Tim

    Another question I have is, will a barrel that is 2 3/4 or 3 inch work on the gun I have, although the barrel on my gun only says 2 3/4 inch?

    Thanks again,

    Tim

    Yes, it will work. I had a 1187 trap gun that I put a field barrel on and shot a lot of skeet and sporting clays. However I did not shoot any 3" shells.

    Thanks for the information Wayne. From what I understand, a light contour barrel will not work on my gun, but a standard contour in 2 3/4 or 2 /3/4 and 3 inch will work.
    John I would like to keep my 30 in. 2 3/4 in. target barrel for now. Thanks anyway.
