i have a Remington 1100 classic trap i purchased new in November of last year, only difference i see in my trap barrel and a field barrel is the trap barrel had a mid bead and a knock down pin ribs look the same
It is relatively easy to achieve what you want in redesigning a Remington 1100 for your purposes.Old but informative thread...not to hijack it..but an effort to glean some information for you knowledgeable guys that have links to it, I hope my questions are OK.
I'm in the process of changing from an o/u to something that handles recoil better. Last time I got my face bumped (holding too loose) I got 4 big floaters in my right eye that have not gone away.
From what I can tell, a pre 90's Remington 1100 would be a good candidate for mods like I would need to fit me.
I can't shoot a Monte Carlo stock...puts me way over the rib...and I don't want the gun to be longer than the equivalent of a 32" o/u. I guess that means a field stock and a 28" or so barrel?
I want to rig this thing up with a adjustable comb, and a additional recoil reducer that will allow left, right, up and down and lop adjustment...Gracoil or?
In other words I want to build it the "best" that it can be done with the best parts.."old or new" that can make this a "real" shooter. (Doubles capable too). All I know much about is over and under target guns....so this is new territory for me.
Has anyone else had to go this route? Do you have one for sale, or older barrels, flat comb stock, or anything that would be ideal for this effort?
....or any better suggestions for a similar super light recoil trap gun.
yes, the pin only knocks the hull down, and I think forward a little, as it ejects to help keep from hitting shooter next to you with empty hullsOn the Classic trap with the knock down pin can you still do doubles?
Pretty easy to add some weight to the stock to overcome this and the recoil is amazing compared to the o/u's. Built in recoil reduction!I had a chance to shoot the Remington 1100 Competition and really liked it!
30" .740 bore lengthened forcing cone, 5 extended Trubore Chokes, mid bead, cut comb, Bump Buster recoil stock,faux carbon fiber stock cover,Nickel receiver, Teflon coated internal nickle parts, and overall weight of 8 1/2 pounds.
It's a pretty nice package, looks good, and patterns nicely!
Lot of pros and the only negative is that it's barrel heavy!
Take a look at one!
