I've got an old Rem 1100 20g that I've had since I was a kid. I would like to get a 26 inch barrel with chokes but the new Rem barrels won't fit a pre 1977 model.

Anyone know where I can find a barrel for it other than gunshows and whatnot?

Thanks.

You could try Gunbroker, and of course, the old favorite, eBay. Or as you've probably been told, send it to Briley, they'll cut it down, put a rib on it, drill it for chokes, Re-Blue it, whatever needs doin' :D

The Remington Parts List shows 20 ga, 26 in barrels that DO NOT say LW.
Give Remington a call. They just might have what you want/need.

Here is a website that has barrels for your shotgun, but, they aren't RemChoke:

So, you definately don't have an 1100 LT. So do you have an 1100 LW or is it a "Standard Weight"?

Figure out which one you have for sure. You can find standard weight barrels quite often. I've never looked for 1100 LW barrels nor noticed them around much, you might have a tougher time with that. Here is a link for barrels if you can handle the prices.

This place is nice because he always has some in stock it seems. You can usually find barrels for less though if you have time to look around and wait until you get lucky and find one somewhere else.

I am in the same spot with a steel receiver older 1100-
I chopped the barrel down to 19" for a quail gun-
Now I would like to get another longer one for daughters to shoot skeet with it

Skeet then modified- 26" with a changeable chokes

You can send it to Mike Orlen and get it cut down and screw in chokes installed for much less than the cost of a standard weight barrel. Those things go dear.
You can make an LW barrel out of an LT barrel, and there were some hybrids during the change over period that use LT barrels to start with.

I have one of the LW (short tang) 1100's. One barrel says LW on it. The other does not. I do not know how it is done, but if you want a choked tubed barrel with a vent rib you better contact the Virginian and find out how to convert a LT barrel. I ordered one of the aftermarket barrels from Cabelas and thought long and hard about trying to get it fitted to the short tang. It looked do-able. I chickened out and sent the LT barrel back to Cabelas. They never did change the omission about the serial numbers in their Catalog. I called Remington and at that time which was 7 or 8 years ago they said they could not furnish barrels for the short tang LW guns. I measured the OD of the barrel I had, and at that time the only chokes that would work were the Brily thinwalls and that was iffy. You might measure the OD and check with Mike Orlen to see what is avaliable now. I bought a non vent rib IC barrel because I found one. No real need of it, the mod barrel stays on the gun and I hunt doves with it. Are you sure you need a 26" barrel?

You have a Standard Weight 20 gauge. The barrel extension diameter is the same as the 12 gauge of that era. Thus, neither the LW or LT barrels will fit that receiver. Likewise, there are no barrels with factory-installed choke tubes for this gun.

The LW was introduced in 1970. What's the serial number? If it ends in X or N it is a standard weight. K or U is LW or LT.
I recently had Mike Orlen install choke tubes in a 28" LT barrel and I love it.

:idea: burntcrispy, Have chopped (or leave it alone) and have choke tubes installed.

:idea: Oldfalguy, Think polychoke!

I do happen to have 2 different 1100 20 ga. barrels, both Magnum Full vent rib.
One is a Standard 1100 style 20 ga. Magnum.
One is an LT-20 Magnum 1100 style.

These can also be reworked to operate with lighter loads by addition of the second gas vent hole in the cylinder.
