    One of my friends dad has a Remington 1100 that he bought 6 years ago and never shot once. We took it out the other day and it was in gorgeous condition. I have two 870s but a nice semi-auto would be cool to have. He said he would sell it to me for $450. It also comes with a 20in. slug barrel with sights and a few other extras such as a gun case and it has all the chokes. Anyone have any advice or whatever on if this is a good deal and/or opinions on the 1100. Thanks.

    I want one. I have been using a Browning A-5, but the Remington lines are so much nicer.
    What would you use it for? Unless you are doing a lot of shooting, (trap, Dove), the 870's would probably do you as good. Plus the pumps are usually lighter.

    i'd guess that's a fair enough-to-good price for what you're describing. There are lots of different packages for the 1100 of varying value, so i couldn't give a quote in gold. But if you like it, it doesn't sound like you'd be overpaying.

    For the money spent, the 1100 is a great semi-auto shotgun.

    Cool Thanks. I would be using it for hunting dove and quail probably but I also love trap shooting. Since its only chambered for 2 3/4 shells it doesnt have that much versatility but I have my 870 that is chambered for 3 1/2 shells. I have heard from lots of people that its a good deal so I think I will get it from him.
