Our Assessment: From http://www.remingtonsociety.com/rsa/journals/1100: “Prior to 1969, the Model 1100 was available only in 12, 16 and 20 gauges. Beginning this year, Remington began making .410 and 28 gauge versions. The .410 and 28 gauge guns were initially offered only as a matched pair with matching serial numbers gilded in gold, and protected in a hard carrying case. They retailed for $495.00 for the pair. A total of 5,067 Matched Pairs were sold in 1969 and 1970 with run-off sales of left-over stock in 1971 and ’72. Later in the year, Remington began offering the Model 1100 in .410 with full choke for $199.95 and in 28 gauge with modified choke for the same price. Stocks and fore-ends were made of lightweight mahogany, and either gauge was available with plain or vent rib barrel.” If you are looking to up your game at skeet with a .410, this would be a great choice for that purpose.
