    I shoot a Remington 1100 Skeet-B but with a 30" full choke barrel. Is the skeet stock on this gun a reason for concern in trap shooting? Is the skeet gun stock any different than a trap gun stock? What made the gun a skeet gun other than the original 26" barrel?

    a trap stock is higher than a skeet stock. trap targets are usually rising and you might like a higher comb stock to shoot trap. a skeet stock has a lower comb, most skeet targets are shot moving right to left, or left to right. real easy way to see if a higher comb stock would benefit you without costing you 1 cent. take a 2 shotshell cardboard box tops and tape them to your skeet stock. then shoot a round oftrap and see if the higher comb helps improve your scores. or you can add duct tape to your stock, or mole skin.

    If you decide you want a higher comb for trap, but are concerned about needing to switch to a lower comb for trap, you might pick up a straight comb trap stock, and have adjustable comb hardware installed. Then you can switch the comb height for both. Or... it might be possible the straight comb stock will work "as is" for both sports. If you need hardware installed, there are people here who can do it. Tron, for example, does nice work.

    i forgot to answer your other question. a skeet gun has a lower stock and a shorter barrel and a more open choke than a trap gun. the only difference between the skeet 1100 and trap 1100 and is the stock height, and most trap 1100's have a 30 inch barrel and the choke constriction is tighter.

    Steve has the right idea...99% chance you will need to change the stock some way to get it higher. Cheap way to would also be to contact Meadow Industries company. They make a convert-a-stock pad that sticks to the stock, does not damage the wood, and allows various adjustments.
    To the best of my recollection, your stock is not straight drop on the comb...so very likely you might need a trap stock, which usually is level on the comb...so it won't matter where you place your cheek on the comb. You can probably pick up a trap stock for a reasonable price. Good luck, puablo

    Trap stocks and skeet stocks for the 1100 are different. The skeet stock comb drops in height from front to rear. There are two types of trap stocks for the 1100, both have level combs which do not drop in height from front to rear. They are the straight trap stock and the monte carlo trap stock. If you want to shoot trap, get a trap stock, it will work for both trap and skeet. HMB
