View Full Version : 1100

My dad had a old remington 1100. It was made before steal shot came out and it has a 30 inch barrel with a fixed full choke. I was wondering, can you get a steal shot barrel with a 3 inch chamber for it and saftely shoot it? I heard a little about it but not much. Thanks.

Yes, IF.....

All 1100 bbls are interchangeable but if that 1100's set up for 3" shells, it should work OK.

If it's a 2 3/4" receiver, putting a 3" chambered bbl on it will NOT make it work with 3" shells, and good steel 2 3/4" waterfowl loads are non existent.

Look on the receiver. If it says Magnum on it, a new 3" bbl will work....
