I was thinking of getting a remington 1100 G3 for clay shooting, and some minor hunting, quail and rabbits. How does the G3 handle light loads. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Is that the 20ga 3"? If so, you need to look at the barrel and see if it has 1 or 2 gas ports. If it has 1, It won't cycle a 2 3/4" round, unless it's something heavy like a slug or high brass.

MY WIFE GOT ME THE G-3 FOR CHRISTMAS IN A 20GA AND IT WORKS FINE WITH ALL LOADS, BOTH GREAT AND SMALL. IT DOES HAVE TWO GAS PORTS. REMEMBER TO KEEP THEM CLEAN!
THE GUN HAS VERTUALLY NO KICKBACK AND I'VE BEEN USING IT MORE THAN MY 11-87 IN 12GA FOR BIRDS AND CLAYS.
:rolleyes:

I think that is a newer model than the one I was eluding to...I sold one (perhaps not a G3) when I managed a gun shop back in '96. The guy brought it back saying it wouldn't eject 2 3/4" shells...sure enough...a closer look and it said 3" only...upon close examination of the barrel it had 1 exhaust port. We took the gun back, it was my fault, and replaced it w/ a standard 1100 in 20 ga.

Check the 1100Competition. I like it better than the G3. The Comp is a bit more traditional.
