Hello All
Have looked around and finally taken the plunge to join have to say I am new to Remington Shotguns...Have a lot of Browning's but I just picked up my first Remington 1100 used and I need some help so I figure go to those who know.
As stated it is a 1100 20 Gauge serial number 149XX1X it has a non vent rib modified barrel, A release trigger, Wood is in good shape bluing is about 85% no pitting barrel is straight.
So I guess my first question would be what year was she made, Are parts ie: Barrels, Triggers etc. available for what ever model this is I have read that there is a 20 gauge LT & LW can't figure out what this one is.
The guy I bought her from shot trap with her and she wears a Pachmayer trap recoil pad. That is about all I can figure out. I paid $325.00 for her she shoots great but I would like to get a different barrel (Mirages sucked) and loose the release trigger (Just not my thing)
Thank You in advance for any information that you guys/gals could provide to this Remington Newbie.
