    Looking at a 1187 sporting clays for sale on the net. Owner says it is factory ported. I'm not aware of the factory ported sporting clays 1187 but know that within the vast knowledge of ts.com someone will know if they in fact ever offered it with factory porting. Haven't seen pics yet so don't know what they look like. thanks Ross

    Yes, they came ported. I have one that I purchased new. It has a 30 inch barrel that is ported and the receiver is nicad or nickel.

    Wow that didn't take long, thanks so much guys. It helps because the owner thought it was factory but didnt know and it could've been a black and decker job if you know what I mean.

    BTW, the forend and mag tube on the sporting clays model is shorter than the standard 1187. However, any 1187 light contour barrel will fit this model. This is because the barrel hanger is in the standard position. The drawback is if you want a different forend, you're out of luck.

    Thanks Brian I did not know that. Strange situation, so I take it the forend is shorter from the hanger forward?

    Reminds me of a 1100 special field I bought back in the 80's only to discover the 21 inch barrel and forend was unique, I hated the English stock so bad I managed to adapt a synthetic pistol grip stock and somehow modified the forend to work. Don't want that hassle again.

    The 1100 Special Field forend and stock are exactly the same as a regular 1100.<br>
    <br>
    The 870 Special Field had the barrel hanger moved back and a shortened mag tube, and regular 870 barrels and forends will not fit it.

    Brian I bought 2 of the 1100 special fields back in the early 80's with the 21 inch barrel and english grip stock. The forend end was shorter and the barrel hanger moved back. A normal 1100 barrel or forend wouldn't fit. I put a fiberglass buttstock on mine and adapted the fiberglass forend. The other one I sold to a friend who still has his in original condition.

    Incidently I saved the original forend and sold it to someone here on ts.com that had been looking for one a couple of years ago.

    I like it, and the sign that says "FREE" in the background puts it in my price range...

    Mike, I got talked into a sportsmans team challenge shoot this weekend when they needed someone to fill out a team. I have shot this event many years ago but was woefully unprepared both equipment wise and with my shooting. Anyway I have my only 1100 set up as a back up trap gun and one of the events at the stc is a flurry event that is really a reloading contest where a short open choke auto really works the best. I may be doing some more of these shoots and hate to borrow equipment so I thought I might pick up an auto just in case.

    I love my mx and have no plans to shoot anything else for trap.
