    Anyone have experience with the Wenig New American stock on a Remington 1100? Thinking of getting one, but wanted some opinions first so it just doesn't turn into another dust catcher in the gun room. Thanks.

    I put one on my 391 for sporting clays,
    apparently they have a sporting version 1.5" drop,
    and a trap version i think like 1.3" drop,
    I absolutely love it.
    I bought a machine inletted blank for like $65,
    and did the finish work myself, i sanded the palm
    swell back (where my palm sits) a little further than
    it came from wenig, to fit my large hand a touch better.
    I'll never go back to the factory stock on my 391.

    A shooting buddy of mine has 2 or 3 left handed 1100's and a Browning Gold setup with New American Style Wenig wood. I have a Wenig/Citori setup for doubles that I just love, and I am considering restocking my Ljutic Monogun with the same stock. We have done the fitting for all of them ourselves with very good results. I would highly recommend giving them a try.

    Pat,

    They are a very well designed stocks if their dimensions fit you. They are also a heavy stock, so much so that I fashioned a roll-over comb to remove some wood. That did the job.

    I have four of the Wenig New Americans on a few of my 1100's. For competition I will have no other. I did have all fitted with an adjustable comb after finishing.

    I have 2 of them. One on a 101 win and one on an 1100 rem. They are my favorite stock.
