Owned several 1100s, still have an 11-87 I can't seem to unload, but I would look at a Versa-Max. For a few hundreds more, you can have the state of the art with an increase in durability, longevity and reliability, plus less recoil.
I will grant the VersaMax has more flexibility and will probably go longer between a quick 5 minute spray and wipe cleaning, but I will dispute all
the other claims. I have shot both, and this is not saying anything against the VersaMax. If they come out with a wooden stocked blued version I may get a VersaMax. If I can overlook the drilled and tapped receiver (barf!).
