Remington shotgun dating
My 11/87 (I checked) has flat finished Walnut furniture, and appears to be bead blasted, too.
"Special Purpose" is stamped on the right side of the receiver. It was very heavy and I sold it on e Bay and bought a Remington Mossy Oak camo synthetic stock for it. This was when Remington was near the top of their game IMO.
It's about an inch thick and soaks up the recoil better than anything else I've tried. Dan The "pre-fit" pads offered for Remington do not fit the older 1100s very well if at all.
Note: Exact Shotgun Cartridge Identification requires the identification of both the headstamp, primer and the shell case.
Many companies, such as Winchester may only place a "Winchester" headstamp on the cartridge base for various models of shot shells which are very different from each other.
(If you look at the very top of the shell, on most older paper shells, there should be a paper cap that displays the powder and shot type).
This may require further inspection and research by the collector to determine just what you have.
This gun was touted as being "a great choice for turkey hunting in heavy cover, or for fast handling in a blind." I decided to give this old post a bump...
I bought this model back in 1989 and just thought it was a regular 1100 magnum.
The one in the picture is a pressed checkering older model stock.
The ONLY way to get one to fit right is to have someone install and grind it to fit.
The color of the plastic or paper hull as well as the case size and the size of the brass rim must also be taken in to consideration for identification purposes, as well as the color, size and type of primer used.
Primer size, color, type and size have changed over the years and can sometimes give an idea to the age of a shell.
Hello Everyone, I would like to put a Limbsaver or Kick-eez Recoil Pad on my Remington 1100. Thanks, Accountant That is one thing I will pay a real gunsmith to do.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
