    The patterning results for one person may not be what another person gets.

    Since you said Sportsman, you probably have a field buttstock?

    And I'll assume a 26" or 28" barrel with a low vent rib?

    Most people find these are very flat shooting, typically 50/50 or worst case even 40/60. Typically by adding a trap style buttstock you can get a 60/40 pattern. To get a pattern that's higher you'd probably need an adjustable comb.

    If you're going to shoot this gun for sporting clays and especially for trap, you might want to purchase a monte carlo stock for it.

    Right now, you're in luck, because Remington is closing out their 1187 monte carlo walnut slug gun stock for $39. Yes, these will fit an 1100. And the contour is very close to the factory monte carlo trap stock. The wood, though walnut, is plain. It has cut checkering. I bought a couple of these at their regular price of $98 and fitted them to field guns. They work well for trap.

    Hey Brian,

    I got one of those stocks when they were $59. I thought it was a great deal at the time. I have another on the way for $39, since there are a few 1100's around here that could use one. Thanks for the heads up!
