    I just got a Remington 3200 Competition Trap and was surprised that it is choked Full/IM. The place I got it from even had it listed as IM/Full. I thought they were all IM/Full.

    I never knew if any that were choke "upside-down." My 3200 Competition Trap was Full over Improved Modified.

    Most of them that I have seen are Full over Improved Modified. A couple were Full over Full. Who ever listed that one did not know how to list the chokes. Top barrel is always first.

    They were standard with the Full in the upper barrel and either full or Imp. mod. in the lower. The reasoning was in trap doubles, the first shot would be taken by the lower barrel - less felt recoil or muzzle jump because of the lower relationship with the shoulder - and the more distant shot would be taken with the upper barrel. But I think the same arrangement has been a very long norm in over/unders, maybe even for the same reason on hunting guns......Bob Dodd

    Period Remington catalogs list either F over F, or F over IM as available. No listing for any IM over F. I think your advertiser simply listed the chokings without regard to which barrel was which, or simply did not know the sequence.

    My research has revealed the factory did allot of "custom" to order configurations in the day.


    A gun in this configuration is a bit atypical, but not unheard of by a long shot.


    It is also possible the seller didn't know what he had, but the barrels should be stamped with their respective choking making this possibility less likely.

    Maybe a few pointers on the operation of the barrel selector/safety is in order also.

    Notice the choices are: B, T, S.

    The T stands for TOP

    The S stands for SAFE

    But be careful in selecting the B as it stands for BOTH

    A little tongue in cheek.

    BrownST100, did you take advantage of the special order guns in the 90s? I was at the Ilion plant for a week in 1998 and they told me they could build me a 3200 in any configuration I wanted. The price seemed to begin at about two grand or more, so I didn't order one. Maybe I should have figured out an interesting non standard configuration and bit the bullet. How about a 28-.410 two barrel set with field chokes, straight grip stock, slim cut forend and checkered butt? My wife has a rare factory original K-32 .410 field choked bird gun that is a joy to shoot. I wish I could count the number of guys who have tried to talk her out of it. I would love to have a 3200 like her Krieghoff.

    Remington Society posting:
    "In the 1983 Remington catalogue the Model 3200 isn't even pictured but down in the bottom right corner of page 15 the same six variants of the Competition Trap, the one 28-inch Competition Skeet, the Skeet set, and now in the Competition Skeet column order no. 3207 is listed as 28" Imp. Mod./Full (Pigeon Gun)."
