    Very little actual difference. Trap-T has cut checkering instead of stamped and sometimes has a little better wood. As far as the action goes even the field guns are virtually the same. At least as far as I know.

    I believe the TA and TB grades came first, then the TT (Tournament Trap) came out to mirror the 870TC. TTs have nicer wood than the TAs and TBs as well as cut checkering in place of impressed checkering. Some people believe that TTs had better barrels but I don't know that they did.

    The following was copied from Remington's website:

    Ed, thanks for that listing as I had wondered about that too. There is an error in Remington's info though as I purchased a 20 autoloader in 1964 in my jr year in high school. It has a different frame from the new 20 auto that I have. Jackie B.

    I have an 1100 TB step with a rib 30" fixed full barrel and a straight stock. I bought the gun new for $252 for my wife in 1980 and she shot it for several years. She loved the gun and won a club championship with it. It fits her like a glove.

    I also have an 11/87 Premier Trap with a 30" over bored step rib barrel, choke tubes and Monte Carlo stock. The gun sold new for about $500 in 1987. It fits me like a glove.

    Each gun has outstanding wood and is mechanically perfect. I now use the wife's 1100 TB as a backup. I clean each after each shoot and keep extra "O" rings handy. I have shot about 10,000 rounds with both guns during the past two years with zero problems.

    I have several 870 trap grades that I used to shoot but, as I get on in years, the 1100's shoot so soft, swing so smooth and hit so hard, even with 1 oz. loads, that I have set the 870's aside.

    IMO, the older 1100's and 870's had better barrels than the newer guns and I would much rather have a pre 1990 1100 or 870 than any of the newer ones.

    Ed, I agree 100%. Both my 870TC and my 1100TT were made in 1980 and they just "feel better" than the new ones - a little heavier and more "solid," if that makes sense.
