    Here is what Remington says about it:

    Do model 1187 and model 1100 barrels interchange?

    CAN I FIT MY MODEL 1100 SHOTGUN WITH A MODEL 1187 PRESSURE COMPENSATED BARREL AND SHOOT BOTH FIELD & MAGNUM LOADS?

    Although the Model 1100 and Model 1187 shotguns are very similar in design we do not recommend that the barrels be interchanged between models. The extractors and corresponding extractor cuts in the barrel extensions differ. The locations of the barrel seal grooves in the magazine tubes are in slightly different places. Most of all it is an unsafe practice to exchange parts between models unless it is a documented fact that the different models use the same parts.

    Use the correct forearm and you'll be O.K. I have a Hastings high rib barrel on an 11-87 now and it functions perfectly. Remington wrote that B.S. to sell barrels,,

    Don't forget that an 1187 uses an internally toothed magazine cap, instead of the 1100 style that has a detent ball in the forend. If you put 1187 barrels and forends on an 1100, there is no mechanism to hold the magazine cap in place. Some people have used an o-ring as a kind of lock washer, but that is not ideal.

    Also, even if it all gets mocked up, some have found it still doesn't work because the o-ring groove is in different places on the mag tubes, and they aren't getting a good seal.

    One exception are late model 1100s that use the 1187 style internally toothed magazine cap. These models do not use the detent ball in the forend.

    Interestingly, the Remington synthetic forends for the 1100 and 1187 are the same forend, except one has the detent and the other doesn't. If you use the 1100 version with an 1187 barrel, you can use the detent ball style forend cap.

    It is best to swap parts within model, and not interchange them.

    BTW, the above applied to 12ga models. The 20ga 1100 and 117 barrels and forends absolutely will not swap. In most cases they won't even come close to assembling together. There's some confusion about this because Remington slapped the LT-20 name on the 1187 20ga a couple of years ago.

    Remington is not spewing BS when they say not to swap 1100 and 1187 parts. It's because they will not universally swap, and sooner or later someone finds this out. But there are exceptions to the rule, and some people have had luck with it. You pays your money and takes your chances.
