    Hi Guys, I'm not much into auto's but have the opportunity to buy an 1100 Trap-T very reasonably ($NZ500...about $US350) to have as a back-up or a 'loaner' since my gun has a l/h PFS. What does the "T" stand for, and what should I look-out for on this model? Thanks in advance-Graham.

    That's a very good price for a T grade.

    Check in the barrel tang where the locking lug seats, and you can get an estimate of how much the gun has been shot. If the recess is crisply defined it's a low milage gun.

    I saw what Graham is paying for the 1100 T. I have been looking at one with a Fagan custom stock and an extra trigger set. (low mileage with extra choke tubes and soft case) Is it worth $700 in "good" condition?
    Thanks.

    1100TTs never came with choke tubes from Remington and their original step-rib full-choke barrels are a considerable part of their resale value potential. $700 is about all I'd want to pay for a mint-condition unaltered TT but it might be too much for one with an altered or lesser factory barrel. The lack of an original stock would no doubt be important to anyone paying top dollar for one.

    Modified guns rarely command the resale value of all-original ones.
