Help me identify this Remington 1100 please

I was given this shotgun by my uncle who is 54 years old, he said he bought it brand new when he was 14. It is in mint condition 2 3/4 smooth 27' barrel. The gun probably has fewer than 100 rounds through it. I would really like to know what type of 1100 it is and what year it was made, i did a little research but wasn't sure,, also how much is it worth, thanks.

Check out If the barrel is the one that came on the gun you can look up the date codes to find when it was made. It is probably supposed to be a 28" barrel, but for some reason most of the Remingtons I have measured are slightly shorter than advertised. A few are longer. I suspect they make them all at least 30" long and cut them at the vent rib posts.

Looks like just a standard 1100 from the 70's. I had one just like it around 75 or 76.

I am 53 and also got one at that age, still have it and occasional shoot it. I did replace the rubber o ring a while back and other than that have never had to do anything to it.
It was a very popular shotgun so a lot out there and the prices vary depending on supply and condition. A local store I frequent usually has 5-10 of 70’s vintage for sale. They are listed around $250 - $400 in my area.

If you call Remington with the serial number they will tell you the year it was made.

Your 1100 was made in 1965.

But what do I know?

It looks like the typical 1100 of the day -- a standard, or A-grade, model with pressed checkering. It's a keeper!
