    I think the 11/87 has a thicker extractor?

    As a general rule, with an 1187 for the target sports, you'll want a target barrel. They're generally more reliable with target ammo than the field barrels.

    A lot of minor differences. It also may depend on the model. The Mag tube (Chrome), Gas Seal and barrel hanger, barrel/forearm retention, extractor and bolt, plus a few other unmentioned enhancements. Remington had some info on their site at one time. You might want to poke around there and have a look.

    If I remember, the 1100 will only take 2 3/4" shells.

    When 3" & 3 1/2" mag 12ga came out, Remington brought out the 11-87 which is essentially an 1100 that can take the longer shells.

    There are no interchangeable parts that I am aware of. At least none of the major ones.

    The main difference is that the 1187 has a gas compensating system on most of its barrels that will allow it to shoot light 2-3/4" loads to heavy 3" loads with the same barrel, whereas the 1100 would require two different barrels. There are exceptions. The target barrels (skeet, trap and sporting clays) are set up for very light loads, and must not be used with heavy loads. Some special hunting barrels are for use only with heavy loads. These are mainly short barrels, like turkey and slug barrels.

    The magazine tube on 1187s is stainless steel (not chrome), which the 1100 uses a carbon steel mag tube.

    1187s *AND* late model 1100s use a thicker extractor.

    1187s *AND* late model 1100s have an internally toothed magazine cap that engages a toothed internal plastic plug in the end of the mag tube. The 1100 uses a detent ball on the forend that engages divots in the outer part of its mag cap.
