Re: 1100 20g frame buffer replacement

Me thinks maybe you have the wrong part. I too have a 1978 (March) LT-20 Magnum, and the receiver buffers I have seen - F14689B 1100 RECEIVER BUFFER 20-28-410 GA look just like the one in my gun. Is it possible you have a F14902 1100 RECEIVER INSERT 28 & 410 GA ?

Re: Stupid Question

What you have said is obviously true regarding weight of shot. When I was doing some serious reloading for waterfowl I made some custom shot dippers out of old AA hulls for all the larger stuff. All the factory bushings seem to be even a little light for #8 shot, and the difference when loading 1-7/...

Re: Stupid Question

If the total weight of the ejecta is the same I would assume the same loading data could be used, and I have done so. Remember to weigh everything; wad(s), shot cup, projectile or shot, and sabot .

Re: VERY EARLY WINGMASTER 870 STD. DEER GUN

Unfortunately, it is hard to prove unfired, especially with a gun showing any handling marks and 90% condition. The serial number also isn't especially low. I would guesstimate at $300 tops.

Re: Remington 1985 Shotgun Price List

The 11-87 did not come along until 1987. The Remington catalog did not list prices in 1985 (or later). Might want to look at a Shooter's bible or Gun Digest.
I cannot post sections of the catalog here. If you send me your email I will send you the catalog.

Re: New In Box 11-87 Special Purpose Receiver

Sorry, I saw Special and my brain switched off. I don't know why they wouldn't sell you a receiver other than it would need to go through an FFL in any event.

Re: New In Box 11-87 Special Purpose Receiver

I do not believe they are currently making any gloss blued 11-87 receivers.

Re: Model 1100 - 1187 - 870 sear springs

The Remington competition spring that I purchased did yield a 3 pound 2 ounce trigger pull when combined with a standard sear set up. What I meant was that I found it did not have a noticeable positive effect on my shooting.

Neat stuff. There are also a bunch of pics of John Wayne and Robert Stack with Remingtons floating around on the net.

They had good taste anyway. Remington got a lot of good press back then.

Re: Model 1100 - 1187 - 870 sear springs

Remington sells a heavy duty one (7-8 pounds), and a Sporting one, and a Competition one (3 pounds), all for the 870. They will fit an 1100 and 11-87, but there is concern a lighter spring may be jarred off by the semi auto action. F91771 870 SEAR SPRING COMPETITION TRAP 3 LB $5.15 F97642 870 SEAR S...

Re: Model 11 roll engraving

You probably know that rollmarking is not engraving. It is done with a die. There have been so many different styles when you include the "commemorative" guns I don't know where you could find them all. Some of the more common styles are shown here: https://www.remingtonsociety.org/collecting-reming...
