Our Assessment: Designed by Wayne Leek and R. Kelley, the Remington Model 1100 was introduced in 1963 as a successor to the model 58 and 878 gas operated shotguns. The Model 58s had supplanted the recoil operated Model 11-48, which retained the long recoil action of John Browning’s original design, present in the Remington Model 11 and the Auto-5. All models of the 1100 are gas operated with a mechanism that noticeably reduces recoil. The Remington Model 1100 ushered in the era of successful and reliable gas-actuated autoloading shotguns, and it is the best selling autoloading shotgun in U.S. history. The Model 1100 holds a record for shells fired out of an autoloading shotgun without malfunction, cleaning or parts breakage with a record of over 24,000 rounds. The record was set in 1978 with a Remington model 1100 LT-20. Breaking this record has been attempted with several other models of semi-auto shotguns with no luck. This is their Premier Sporting variant with a nickeled receiver with scroll engraving and gold inlay. The gold inlay features to clays and a banner that reads “Remington Model 1100”. The shotgun has a 27″ vent rib 28 gauge barrel with removable Briley chokes, four come included. It is in Excellent condition and is ready to go dust some clays if you are! Please see our photos and good luck!
Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
