I'm shooting an 1100 Classic Trap - totally "stock" except a wire shell catcher installed by Simmons (after they ground off then re-installed the factory installed shell deflector on the trap barrel, but that is a whole extra story). I'm also shooting an 1100 Duck Unlimited 3" magnum with a regular 30" vent rib barrel and a trap stock & forend I bought from Gene Batchelar. Shoot both for singles/handicap/doubles but N-F-L...(not for long). Consistency is not good...strongly considering going back to my Browning XT 32" and forget the 1100s for awhile. Ripped off a 16 in singles and an 11 in handicap tonight in the trap league for an embarrassing and career low score of 27. Pitiful. Ed
Jack Jack Jack.......... It's a good thing I am too lazy to figiure out how to post pictures or I would show you my Anton's. I have 4 you know. I have one that would bring tears to a grown mans eyes. The rest are just beautiful. Jeff
Shoot one of ten for all events. Four are stocked with extra fancy english walnut Wenig stocks. one D grade, one F grade, Jack West setup, one setup for youth/women, one plain Wenig stock, one regular trap. Two have Hastings barrels, the rest Remington step. Looking for a good deal on some more. Obviously, I think they are the best shotgun ever.
I'm shooting my Foghorn Special 1100 (a Bi-Centennial Edition), which was awarded to a friend of Foggy's at the 1976 Nevada State Championship. Anyway, I was lucky enough to be the right person at the right time to buy it. When I'm in the zone with it, the gun don't miss! Thanks, Foggy!
I have been shooting mine for just about a year now. Had to switch do to an injury and I like it so much now that I'm healed I haven't gone back. I'll make final decision this spring as the competitions start up. Either way it is really a good gun and I have had very few problems. I have kept clean which I think is the secret to 1100's for doubles. For singles or caps I have tried letting it go over 600 rounds with touching it once. Never failed but the empties didn't fly as far I noticed.
Hi Jack! Almost bought a MX 8 last week but held off. How's the P gun treating you?
