I saw a really great wood Remington 1100 with a 34in trap barrell and another 30in barrell. Price was $650.for all. seemed like a fair price . Never shoot a 34 in 1100 and was wondering what other think and any opinion on this set up. I think I can get the gun a little cheaper. I usually shoot sporting clays and was wondering do many people use a 34 in barrell for sportin. It seem like a shame to change the 34 in barrell to have screw in chokes installed but thought if I buy it i may try to get screw in tubes in this fixed barrell if it can be done. I already have several extended chokes for my Wingmaster .
I found that my 32" full choke barrel takes some finesse/getting-used-to. Seems like longer barrels - 32" or 34" - make an 1100 somewhat muzzle heavy. That said, longer barrels do command a price and many like them. Regards, Ed
the 1100 is a very verstile gun for my money, I've owned mine since 73? I have a 34" tarp, a 30" trap, 28" mod and a slug barrel it has never failed. FOr calys I shoot the 30" trap only use the 34" from the 27 yrd line.
They have a common habit of having the gas system crack off the barrel. remingtion does not cover this and you must pay to have them re-attached. This happened to one of my 34 inchers and I have seen it happen to others. Jeff
When Remington introduced those 34" barrels in the late 70's several of us bought one. No one kept theirs more than a couple weeks. A year or so later Remington came out with a 26" full choke barrel. Same thing. Remington
discontinued production of both barrels pretty quickly - which is why there's
not many around.
There is one sporting clays shooter that shoots an 870 with a full choke
34" barrel. His name is Bill Mayer and he has won the Ohio State Sporting
clays championship several times. He switches to a Beretta O/U for the fast, close in targets.
I went on and bought the gun and exra barrell today. Very nice wood, 2 barrells 34 and 30 in both FULL. $575. but $40. to ship it to me from Florida to Ky. where I live. No tax either. I think I will be happy with the gun and want to give the 34in a chance.
