    Thinking about putting together a 20ga trap gun and a skeet gun and heard that early model 1100 20ga was on a 12ga frame. Can anybody provide any info on these guns? Good idea or bad idea.

    Thanks

    I think Remington amde some skeet 20ga.guns on a 12 ga frame, I have been shooting Practice with a 20ga.tube in my kreighoff and it works great, thinking about going to a 28ga. tube, with shot prices still climbing

    I searched high and low for a 20g standard frame 2 problems. If you find one it will be 40+ years old mosy I did find most for sale to be in poor shape. I sold a box of parts for 20g full frame on ebay last year....250.00 final price They are out there just gotta hunt.

    Anthony12ga: Yes the 20ga guns are on a 12ga frame. They made them both in the LH and RH versions. They look awkward. A big 12ga receiver and a little 20ga barrel. But it works. Hard to find is right. Good Luck. Dave T.

    They are the sweetest shooting 20ga out there. almost no recoil. They are on auctions arms, gunsamerican and gunbroker.com. Just keep looking and you will find a nice one fopr less then 500. I put a Montecarlo 12ga 1100 stock on one with a 28 inch full choke and it was the nicest gun for a beginer you could hope to find. Jeff

    I am one of the worst when it comes to buying another shotgun for whatever reason but decided I had more fun reloading 7/8 oz of 8 1/2 shot and shooting it from my 12 ga. 1100 Trap. No need for 20 ga. components or reloader. 17-18 grains of Clays depending on hull-wad combo and its a hull spitting deathray.

    Thanks for the information.

    Do you know if the early 20ga 1100s with plain barrels (no vent ribs) are on the 12 ga frame. I looked at one that was priced right and thought about it for a spare receiver.

    Look at the serial number. if it ends in an X you have a Standard( 12 gauge) frame reciever. Jeff

    The 20 ga. built on 12 ga. frame 1100's were also made in different grades. I have one of the guns myself, a 20 ga. 1100 skeet "B" grade in excellent condition. These were great guns, shame they are not produced any more.

    I have two of them. Both are Skeet B grade 20 gauge. The biggest thing you have to watch out for is the action bar and bolt. My first broke and action bar arm and I had to pai $150 for a new one. Then I found some on Egay. I evenyually got a bolt as well. A good source of parts/guns are pawn shops.

    They are the best 20 ga autos ever made IMO.

    I think the 20ga LH were only made for 4 years then discontinued. I have one of the LH 20ga. Beautiful Gun. Dave T.
