    How did the Remington 1187 "Target" barrel compare in weight to the classic Remington 1100 fixed choke barrels? I know the Light Contour barrels were considerably lighter than both, and that the "target" contour was a return to a heavier barrel, but i'm curious as to which would be heavier, an 1187 Target barrel, or a std 1100 barrel.

    Ian, I have an 1100 "TARGET" barrel and an 1100 "STD" barrel. I don't have an 11-87 one, but I'll go weigh the ones I have and post the answer here. Not exactly the question you asked, but should be close....

    Well, you may find this strange, but here's the answer on the 2 1100 barrels. I weighed them on a digital scale that is accurate to one tenth of on ounce. Both barrels are 30", step rib trap barrels. The std. barrel has a .734 bore and .695 fixed choke. It weighs 2 lb., 9.0 ounces. The Target barrel has a .746 bore and has a flush Remchoke(Trap Full) installed. It weighs 2 lb., 11.3 oz. The barrel with the larger bore weighs 2.3 oz. more than the std one........go figure. Sorry , Neil, I did not provide any charts or graphs with this "experiment"......LOL!!!

    I have both and the 11-87 target barrel is heavier than my 1100 std. must be because of the backboring and step rib of the 11-87. jm

    Jim, the backboring should make it lighter....and both of the 1100 barrels I weighed have step ribs.

    The backbored barrels are a bigger outside diameter? A bigger circumference would mean more metal would mean heaveier.

    I have both a 1100 TB step rib 30" full fixed choke barrel and a 11/87 step rib back bored 30" rem choke barrel. The 11/87 barrel is heavier. It seems to me to be a different barrel and I believe that the outside tube diameter and wall thickness is greater in the 11/87 barrel.

    I also have 870 TB 30" barrels (several) and 30" step rib back bored barrels (two) from the 870 TC Trap. The back bored barrels are definitely heavier.

    I suspect that factory barrels with choke tubes are made thicker than the older fixed choke barrels.

    Also, the back bored barrels shoot (to me) significantly softer with 1 1/8 oz loads.
