I'll be inheriting a shotgun from my dad (he's not dead yet, but we're talking about it anyway). My 2 choices are a Remington 870 pump (older), or a Remington 1100 autoloader (relatively newer). Both are in excellent shape. Sorry, no pics. He's got them locked up. They're both your average wood stock Remington shotguns, both in 12ga, and both in excellent condition. Going by this information (again, sorry about not having pics), which one would you say is the more desirable shotty? I've tried looking them both up, and the 870 is by far the more popular, and longer running gun, but the 1100 auto is a little more up-to-date (I think its from the 60's vs. 50's for the 870, I think). I also used to carry the 870 when we went hunting when I was younger, since my dad used the 1100 until he got a rifle. The 1100 is just a tad bit nicer... but the 870 is older. Maybe worth more?
