Hello all!

I am very new to trapshooting, less than a month, and I am looking for my first trap gun. I have it narrowed down to one of these two models the 1100 Classic Trap (25333) or the 1100 Competition (26919).

The dedicated trap gun has the advantage of course, but the competition gun has some features that may make it worth looking into. Would the 1100 competition make a good trap gun or should I stick with the Classic Trap.

I thought I would ask the pro's out here and see what your thoughts are.

Thanks,

Drew

I don't know about the 1100 Classic Trap, but I purchased new an 870 Classic Trap. I had an adjustable comb installed and a Nelson Pad-a-just and couldn't be happier. Still a little stiff after about 1,000 rounds but shoots exactly where I point it. If you are just shooting trap as I am, the Classic Trap would be a better choice.

I have seen an 1100 Competition, and its a really nice gun.

But if you're buying a gun for shooting trap, buy a trap gun.

The Competition has a sporting clays stock, and is muzzle heavy with the 30" barrel. Definitely the classic trap.

When I purchased my first 1100 Comp I intended to use it for Trap Doubles. I called Remington, spoke with a supervisor in Parts and arranged for a swap of wood for the Monte Carlo stock. I even sent the forearm so that they could match it up to the new stock (the Pro-bore BBl has a bigger Dia.).

I paid shipping both ways and they were more than accommodating. It worked out very well, but that was about 4 or 5 years ago, before the current ownership.

I like the Comp for it's Teflon coating. I'm extremely happy with my 1100's. I own 3 1100 Classic Trap's and 2 Comp's now. I keep three for myself and use the other 2 for visitors and grandkids.

Excellent entry level gun, and an even better recoil reduction arm. Lots of good guns out there, the 1100 CT or Comp are just one of them.

IMHO,
Kip

I put quite a few rounds down a CT this year. It ran like a sewing machine for me, cycles light 1oz loads well, looked great, broke my first hdcp straight with it, etc. I had no complaints at all. Shot 3" high for me with my mount and had a nice swing once I got used to it.

The comp is a nice auto as well I'm sure but I've never owned one so not sure how it would do at trap although I've been outshot by the right guy with an 870 express and value pack shells so its the Indian, not the arrow.

Last year I converted an old 1100, put on a mc stock and the comp probore barrel, i think i shoot it better than my bt-99 (which isnt saying much), it goes right to the target.
The comp barrel does not have the knock down pin the trp barrel does, i find the t&s shell catcher sometimes flips the shell around making it hard to remove, i have used, with better success, the birchwood casey shell catcher on the comp barrel. my friend has recently switched from his bt-99 to the 1100 trap model, his shells because of the knock down pin have never hit me, and he may never shoot the bt99 again. The chokes for the trap barrel are different than the remchokes because of the internal bore of the trap barrel, and of course the probore chokes will not fit the trap barrel. another gun to evaluate is the beretta 391 parallel target. one more thing the 1100's are very soft shooters. hope this helps
