Re: Remington model 31 barrel fit

Unfortunately, I agree 100% with your comment as well. Don't forget the "home defense shotgun butchers" either.

Re: Remington model 31 barrel fit

A good gunsmith doesn't have to have ever seen or worked on a model of gun to be able to repair one. You look at it, you figure out how it is supposed to work, you figure out what's wrong, and fix it.
I am a retired gunsmith.

Re: Rush Razee Remington Professional

Very cool info from days gone by. 217 straight, with no adjustable comb, recoil reducer, goofy raised rib, etc., etc. Maybe I should try shooting with a vest and tie...

Re: 1968 wingmaster NIB

I bought one just like it except 3" Magnum in 1974. Paid $150 out the door. Shot it better than any other shotgun I have ever owned, and I've probably owned 75 or 80. Outstanding firearm.

Re: Model 1100 20-LT Skeet

They stopped using the 'LT' labelling, but the 20 gauge 1100s thru 2020 use the same barrels, so yes you can get a RemChoke barrel.
LW barrels are unique. Getting choke tubes installed in your barrel would likely be a lot cheaper option in these times.

Why not install choke tubes ? The best of all worlds.

Re: Trigger Plate Pin Detent Springs: 11-87

Indeed times have changed. I once sighted in my .30-06 on the picnic table five steps from the back door. Now there are houses everywhere filled with ex-city dwellers who call 911 if they hear a bang.

Re: Trigger Plate Pin Detent Springs: 11-87

1100s had two D springs for decades. I don't remember when the 11-87 dropped one and indeed the new 1100s might have one as well, I just don't remember. You only need one unless you are so ham handed you can't get it in the gun assembled without two.

Re: 11-87 Premier Questions

You have a rifle sighted deer barrel. It does not have the gas bleed off system of regular 11-87 barrels, but unless someone put an 1100 barrel on it, it should have the same shape barrel gas ring so the fore arm will fit properly. I don't see where they made a Premier model deer gun, but they did c...

Re: 32 30” Standard Grade

The stock that is on it has been altered so collector value would not be impacted by another stock, assuming equal quality of wood, fit, etc. I would get it restocked if it were me.

Re: Pre-68 Remington 1100 date

The barrel is May 1965, and that appears to be suitable for the receiver. I have a '63 with the serial #50***V.

Re: Ridiculous Wood

Too long ago to remember the details now, but I believe there was a shortage of walnut that led to a lot of the mahogany usage on production guns in addition to the "lightweight" guns advertised with the mahogany.
