View Full Version : Info Wanted on 20gauge Autoloader
March 26, 2002, 04:27 PM
Got a bad shoulder and a little woman.
Is there such a thing as a reliable 20 gauge autoloader in 18 or 20 inch barrel for self defense to replace my Vang comped 590A1?
Thanks for any information or insight.

I only have experience with Rem 1100 and High Standard (forget the model). Both worked 100% and kicked little but you'd have to buy/modify short barrels for the HS. Rem 1100 is easier to load.

Some say this is the lightest recoiling shotgun that you can get.

1100. They made and maybe still do make a Special Field model with a 21" bbl. Handles like an M-1 carbine.
A standard 1100 with a shortened bbl will do the job also,don't see many factory bbls in the 18-20" range for the 1100.

The 1100 Youth Model comes with a shorter stock and a 21" barrel. It sounds like just the ticket for you.

I have an 1100 20 gauge youth model 21" bbl and synthetic stock,I added a Choate extended tube and a Hi-Vis front sight.It is very fast and points very quick.Recoil is light, shot to shot splits are very fast. BILLG
