Warren, That is a classy post. I am sure that it will end up with a big bow on it some where. This gun has got to be the hottest gift item I know of other than maybe the SR1911.

Merry Christmas!

I put a hundred shells through mine today. I love this gun. I does not kick at all. I found it it to be dead on accurate. One minor problem was the chokes kept coming loose. I suspect a little grease on the choke tube will solve this problem. As other have said it is a little weight forward, but overall an extremely nice shooting gun. I had guys all over me at the club wanting to know about it. I really belive this will become my favorite gun for the range.

Good for you. The only problem with mine is answering the inevitable question: Where can I get one?

Yeah I got that too. One guy was real interested. He just dumped his krieghoff because after two years of shooting with it he dropped from AA ranked down C. I said well I'm not that good of a shot and he replied you were sure knocking them down out there. Well maybe when he was looking. He seemed really interested. I told him there won't be anymore until February. I offered to let him shoot it this weekend.

I spent the last 2 1/2 months trying to find one, and finally acquired a new one yesterday. Overall it seems very good, however the fit of the stock on the receiver is not as good as I expected it to be. I will be able to shoot it this weekend and see how it does.

I have had my 1100 synthetic competition a little over a month now and I have poured about a thousand rounds through it and it still a dream. I bought a shell-catcher for it so I could stop spending my time bewteen squads picking up hulls. I really am glad I was persistent and that one finally became available to buy. It shoots MUCH different than my Citori Ultra Sporter, and the learning curve for the Remington was about three flats of shells. But now I am doing well with it and the Citori sits, I open its case up and fondle it every now and then so it doesn't become too forlorne.
I hope everyone who is looking for the Synthetic Competition is able to acquire one.

One happy camper I am. I have a machine that you pour 12 ga shotgun shells into and it pours out hulls as long as you want, there is no recoil fatigue. I had the LOP increased to a tad over 15" by a spacer from Ken Rucker, and that made a tremendous difference.

Anone wanting a Citori????

Mine weighs 8lb, 14oz. I removed the thick recoil pad and replaced it with a very slim hard plastic pad to obtain the correct length of pull........ Larry

Anyone looking to spruce up your 870, 1100 or 11-87 with a synthetic stock, check out this thread over on Trapshooters . com

http://www.trapshooters.com/noframes/cf ... did=206638

I bought my stock there. Great guy to deal with and a real good price!

Here are a few pics of my gun. No need for a Bumpbuster since my old 1100 is the softest shooting 12ga I ever shot,

"Spruce up" a shotgun by adding synthetic stocks? Isn't that kind of like "sprucing up" your house by adding vinyl siding?

Actually it is EXACTLY like that.

Remington wood IMO has never been anything special on the 1100's. Some nice wood out there but nothing really fantastic. If it was I would think that they would do a nice oil finish rather than the Gymnasium floor poly coating that I see on them.

I like the appearance of it. Has a carbon fiber look to it.

Thanks Dr Duk I like it too.
It did not look right with the gold fill in the engraving so I fixed that.
