The Remington 1100 has been around for years and you still see quite a few of them being used for trap. Very reliable but as others had said O rings do need replacing. They're inexpensive and easy to replace.

Good used 1100s are around at reasonable prices and replacement barrels are easy to find.

Gas operated so the recoil is relatively soft.

A decent choice if you have a limited budget.

The Rem 1100 Competition model is nice. I held one at my FFL's awhile ago. He is selling it (used) for $1050. Almost took it, but bit the bullet and bought a nice Browning 525 instead. I already have a Rem 1100, but not the Comp Model.

The O rings seem to be the biggest drawback anyone mentions about the 1100. I bought my replacements at an auto store for a few pennies each.

I am pretty sure you are going to love that gun. The stock is a Jack West and I am pretty certain that the recoil absorber is a Bump Master.
