Remington 1100 LT-20

I am considering buying a Remington 1100 LT-20 20 gauge semi-automatice shotgun. I just don't know what it is worth. It has a 26" barrel, wood stock, three chokes, shoots only 2 3/4" shells and is in excellent shape. Can anyone give me an idea of what it is worth? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

$400.00 if it is clean and well cared for, less if it has rub marks in the bluing and dents in the wood etc..

If it was a 3" gun it would be worth $100-140.00 more!

In my lifetime I have seen fence row to fence row farming and the return of CRP and game to the landscape.Now we face again the prosepect of fence row to fence row again! Sportsman are our own worst enemy in that we fail to look forward and focus to much on the now!

That sounds hellacious indeed Scott. Is the barrel cut off or original? Does it have any other mods besides the chamber and port? Do you use it all season or just early and have you ever used #4s or larger through it?

Good stiff pipe cleaners and a little nitro solvent go a long ways towards keeping any 1100 running smoothly. The only knock against the 1100 is that they're heavier than their alloy receivered competition.

Scottsdale have you been chasing Gambel Quail in AZ this year?
Far as the 20 ga. you should wait for a 3". It will make a better late season gun. IMO

I think I could live a long time before I needed more than a 1oz 2 3/4" 20ga load, the Fiocchi nickle plated version of same being the class of that field.

Only of you aren't versed in the art of putting the barrel out in front of something the size and speed of a hand-thrown trashcan lid.

Thats true Horse, some days a 410 with 8 shot is plenty. Like last weekend Cattail walkin behind "The girls". Although walkin state lands that require steel can be nice to shoot 3"ers.

Never needed more than 2 3/4 with mine. Just love it. 24" barrel and straight stock comes to the shoulder very fast. Early grouse with skeet choked 7 1/2's to Late Pheasant with modified 4 lead.

I use 2 3/4 20s all the time for pheasants. Late season I switched to a cheap coast to coast pump I hadnt picked up in 10 or so years. Holds the tightest pattern of any of my 20s. Worked great. Id take that over my 12s anyday. I think its a little better for the dogs ears going to a tighter pattern instead of a magnum load.

20 ga. and late season pheasants? That'll never work! :)

Spun in the CYL choke just before leaving so as to frost the "That'll never work" cake.

Opinions are one thing, facts are another. I would tend to wonder the context of which we're talking.

Just thinking out loud is all.....

Hard to argue with that which I proved possible on a whim. Weather permitting I'll bust that "2 3/4" 20ga is too light for late birds" myth something awful again this week. I'll leave the CYL in place as more "Can't be done" fodder.

Weather permitting, pics to follow, I've lense/body settings to fiddle with.
