    I assume you mean a 20ga that built on a 12ga size receiver? These are known as a standard size 20ga. If so, Corson's at the link has several in stock. Not cheap, though.

    There is also a different lightweight 20ga, the LW-20. It, like the LT-20, is built on the 28ga 1100 size receiver. Unlike the LT-20, the barrel tang (extension) is very short, like an 870. It is possible to machine an LT-20 barrel down to fit the LW-20 action. Gander Mountain used to do this for about $50. I don't know if they still do.

    Thanks for the info I did not realize there were that many configurations on this gun.Yes I think it is the standard. The mag tube is the size of a 12 ga.

    Thanks for all the help guys. I was hoping there was a place I could find a barrel with rem chokes for that gun but it doesn't look that is going to happen.Any suggestions on who would be good to send it to, to have chokes installed.

    any pre 1977 that is on a 12ga frame or standard weight 20ga barrel will fit your gun. Just when you are looking for them check for standard weight and pre 77 12ga frame, gun broker would be a good start. The link above is one on GB.com but it don't state what it is, this is another auction # on GB.com 158240076 . I hope this helps.

    thanks

    Pre 77 has nothing to do with it. All 3 models were in production before 77. Having tubes installed in you current barrel is the best option, if your gun has a vent rib, that would be even sweeter. Depending on what choke tube installation costs, you may want to consider selling your gun and buying an LT with choke tubes. All the older 1100 20ga's are nice guns.

    The 1977 and earlier standard weight 20ga is built on the 12ga frame but 1978 and up are not and this the reason the barrels will not interchange. The reason I said pre 77 is the standard weight was not maid after 1977 in 20ga.

    Lee. I understood what you were trying to say, and its much more clear now that you have added "that is on a 12ga frame" to your original post. Not doubting you, I just wanted to clarify for the original poster.

    resurrecting this thread :

    "The 1977 and earlier standard weight 20ga is built on the 12ga frame"

    so, am I understanding this correctly - the standard weight 20g barrel will fit/work on a standard 12g receiver? and the LT LW 20g barrels require a 20g receiver. Do I have this correct?

    Remington Standard weight 20ga on the 12 gauge frame have a X as the first letter of the serial number..and a quarter will pass thru where the magazine tube fits.

    The "X" is at the end of the serial number on the side of the receiver.

    I'm trying to figure out if a standard 20g barrel will fit on my 12g receiver

    >If you're just trying to make a 12 ga 1100 into a Standard 20, DON'T.

    as noted above I am trying to use a standard 20g barrel on my 12g 1100, can you tell me why you don't recommend that?

    sonora mike, you will have pain regarding magazine tube, followers, feed ramp, interrupter, feed latch,and I don't know what all else.

    Take Pat's advice.

    I'm having a hard time understanding why this is a no-no, if the "12g frame" that the early standard 20g was built on is the same as the frame in the 12g 1100 then why all the potential problems? Are the internals in the 20g built on the 12g frame different than the internals of a 12g built on the 12g frame?

    I'm taking "frame" to be receiver, receiver internals, and magazine tube -- let me know if I am off.

    I'm not bound and determined to do this, I'd just like to get a detailed understanding of what the issues are as part of my learning curve to become more experienced. Thanks

    While the receiver is the "same".. everything that feeds the shells are different.. I've tried unsuccessfully to make a Remington 1100 in 16 gauge from a 12 gauge.. Same drill.. Everything Halfmile said.. plus the carrier are different.. AND.. once you build it in 20 gauge.. if you ever succeed.. It is no longer a 12 gauge..

    Just put a 20 guage shell in the magazine of your 12 guage 1100 and work the bolt.

    Understanding will come.
