View Full Version : Is the 1100 G3 the Death Knell of the 11-87?

If so, will you miss the 11-87?

I think I'll stick to my 1100. Never liked the feel of the 11-87 so I won't miss it if it goes. And while the new gun looks promising, I don't think much of fake "Realwood™ Semi-Fancy carbon fiber laminate stock featuring high gloss finish".

Oh well, maybe they'll put wood stocks on a couple of them for us untactical, stuck in the 20th Century types.

The g3 gun has a wood stock. They just have a two piece stock joined together in the middle. Kind of like a two piece stock.

I've put to much amateur gunsmithing into my 1187 to give it up for another "flavor" of 1100. Maybe after 100K rounds or so.

I guess I just don't understand why if it's really walnut they would say it's "Semi-Fancy carbon fiber laminate stock" and hang a name like Realwood on it. If it's wood just say so. I shy away from anything that reminds of bogus phrases like fresh-frozen.

Well, now that I know it's really walnut & carbon fiber plywood of some sort I'll have to wait and see what it looks like.

"Titanium PVD coated receiver"

What is PVD?

Physical Vapor Deposition. The method they apply the coating?

I have a Realwood(TM) stock for my 03A3. It is real, but it isn't wood. How much will one of these go for and why shouldn't I buy a Benelli instead?
