I have several of the old 1100 30” fixed full Trap barrels and want to send one to Briley for install of thin wall choke tubes. These barrels were bored at .730 and I’m wondering if I would benefit from having the barrel opened to .745 and lengthening the forcing cones as well?
Curious if anyone out there has had this done on one of these barrels.

What benefit would you see accruing from having such work done?

All I can see is the loss of 7 and half thou of steel from the barrel wall.

Leave them alone. They are valuable. Best patterning barrels on the field. Offer them for sale, unmolested, and see what they bring.

Had the thin wall tubes put in one of my full choke superX1 barrels, excellent results. Have done well with Skeet and 5 stand.
Did not do the .745. Interesting idea.

I had Briley put thin wall tubes in my Remington 1100 in 1985. I shot it competitively in my youth, and my daughter shot it competitively for many years as well. It has well over 75000 shells through it with no problems.

If I remember correctly, Briley drilled the barrel with three tubes and a wrench for $115.

Don't backbore. Can create a separate issue of pressure to operate the gas system. Chokes are fine, but do not backbore or forcing cone lengthen
