    I have skeet version of the S&W1000 with a tula type choke, it's in excellent condition. It has a adjustable comb and very nice wood, pictures available. The 1000 is once again supposed to be coming back into production, if it isn't already in production. S&W also made a trap version. My daughter shot this skeet gun for awhile and never had a problem. I also have a 28" 3"mag. field S&W 1000 that I bought mostly for a back up parts gun this gun is missing a few minor parts which available.

    I'm looking the sell both, will take $450.00 for the pair.

    The Magnum and Super Skeet models had steel receivers, The rest of the line was aluminum. I don't know about Trap models but would assume steel.

    The steel is preferable.

    If this is one of the older ones, it dates back to when S&W was part of the infamous Bangor/Punta group who about drove it, Harley, Brunswick, Skamper, Alcan and others into the ground. We, in our old shop, sold a lot of these, had no complaints and the new price (dealer) was around $200. I'd buy two of these to get enough credit to get a Model 29 (thanks to Dirty Harry, these were going for upwards of $450 when retail was supposed to be about $245...we had to buy $450 in "related" Smith stuff to get a 29 at dealer cost)...I know, I just spread lots of bs but we never had one of the 1000's come back. I always figured the buyers used them a couple times a year for hunting. They sure looked like an 1100. Not the same at all as the new ones.

    If you get it check the recoil buffer under the gas piston. A little piece of rubber that goes south pretty often. Many times you will find what looks liek tar in the magazine tube, it is the remains of the buffer. I have heard of some taking a piece of leather and soaking it in oil to use as a buffer.

    I have a S&W 1000 that is marked Trap on the steel receiver. Comes with a 30 inch barrel with a high rib and Winchoke tubes. It has the wire shell catcher, and the box it came in. Only modification I did was to put a limb saver pad. Anybody interested, send me a PM. jm
