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 shotgun has a 28″ 28GA bore barrel with removable chokes, and a blued finish. It is in Very Good condition and is ready to go dust some clays if you are!
