Our Assessment: This is a Remington 11-87 Sportsman in about Fine condition. The 11-87 built on their earlier Model 1100 with a 3″ chamber and this example also is threaded for removable chokes. This makes it a very versatile shotgun with a reliable operating mechanism. With some light wear, strong mechanics, this shotgun has a lifetime of service left in it. With a 28″ barrel and the installed Improved Modified choke, it could make a great trap or birding gun, but other chokes could always be installed for a number of purposes. If you’re looking for a semi-automatic shotgun for sporting or hunting, this is a great shotgun to bid on. Please see our photos and good luck!
