Our Assessment: The Remington Model 90-T was a single barrel trap shotgun designed by U.S. Competition Arms and produced by Kolar Arms from 1991-1997. They were designed with an elongated forcing cone to reduce felt recoil. A low profile vented rib was standard, and an adjustable tall rib, factory porting and an adjustable comb stock were options. Some experienced shooters swear by these shotguns and claim felt recoil is as low as or lower than with semi-autos. The shotgun is in about Fine condition with 90% of its finish remaining. There are a few defects to the metal, but the majority of the wear just appears to be from standard use. The stocks show only a few light marks and retain strong checkering. The bore is bright with no erosion. This will make someone an outstanding shotgun for trap shooting at the highest competitive levels. Please see our photos and good luck!
