    I ran accross a Remington 1100 Trap today. The gun was in the original box and appeared never to have been fired. I believe manufactored sometime in the mid 70's. The stock was burled walnut in perfect condition and the reciever engraved with a golden eagle. I want to make an offer but need to know what a ball park could be for re-sale? any opinions or info welcome Thanks Ken

    The golden eable 1100 is the latest of 1100s.Called the "classic"

    850 is fair if it is new

    Can't be if it was manufactured in the mid 70's. The Classic wasn't out yet.

    The 1976 Bicentennial 1100 has a eagle on the port side.

    I bought this early 80's stepped rib fixed full 1100 Trap NIB about 2 years ago for 650.00 if that helps any.

    Looks like it has the old impressed checkering. When did Remington switch to cut checkering on the 1100 trap? Wouldn't that help in narrowing down the year of mfg?

    To find the date of manufacture on any Remington guns is easy. If the gun you own or are buying is still in the original box it is even more easy to find the month and year the gun was born. Look at the end label on the box. There will be three groups of numbers. Serial, packer and order number. Now look at the packers number. At the end of the packer number there will be two letters. The first letter will be the month made and the second letter will be the year. Both those letters will also be stamped on the left side of the barrel sometimes out of site some were in the area in front of the receiver. Example date code"OZ" would be July 1975. If you can post those two letters I can tell you the month and year the gun was made.

    This is how you date post 1920 Remington guns. Not by serial number.

    If the gun you are looking at was a Bicentennial the box would be red white and blue and on the left face of the receiver would say 1776/1976 with a second letter date code"I".
