I have a Remington 1100 with a 27 and 3/26 inch barrel (from receiver to end of barrel)
and it has remchokes
I was wondering would it be good for Trap and Hunters trap ( basically a combination of skeet/trap/sporting clays)

I don't think it'll work. You should send it to me, I'll use it for things it is good enough for and even pay the shipping and the FFL transfer.

How are you going to know unless you go out and try shooting Trap and "Hunters Trap" with it?

POS gun for what you intend to use it for. Send it to me and I'll beat gixxer's offer by $10.00.

Seriously, it's a great gun and a 28" barrel is fine for most clays shooting. :D

I did try hand trap with it once, and did good, but i would like to join a club and start doing "Real" trap.

A Remington 1100 is good for any type of shooting! That's why tens of millions of them have been sold.
You won't be embarrassed to take the gun to any club.

It was "good enough" for Leo Harrison III to win all kinds of trap shooting events for years, until he switched to a Beretta DT 10. So it must be alright.

I don't shoot trap but apparently trap shooters get offended when an auto ejects a shell in their general vicinity. One of the reasons I don't shot trap. And 5 stand is more fun for me anyway.

When I shot an 1100, I mounted a shell catcher on the receiver. No problen.

When I shoot trap now I use an O/U. If the guy next to me is shooting a SA, I don't care where his ejected shells go, as long as they don't hit me. Never had that happen in 38 years of shooting.

I'm an SX-1 man, but if you like the 1100 rock it.
For $15 or so, you can get a Save-It Shell Catcher from Birchwood Casey. They take a tiny bit of getting used to and adjusting, but once you've got it down they work well, and you can flip the wire piece down or remove it for doubles or skeet, too.

I purchased an 1100 Competition Synthetic a couple months ago.. I am shooting trap with it and if I learn how to shoot the gun will do the job.... cleaning is simple, the Birchwood Casey shell catcher keeps my neighbors happy and the gun operates smoothly and efficiently. I experienced a couple small issues and Remington jumped through hoops to take care of me. I have not owned other trap guns so I cannot compare I can only tell you the 1100 does what you ask it to........ Larry

The T & S shell catcher has always been popular. It's usually around $10 and easy to take on and off as it just snaps into place below the ejection port. I wish I had stayed with my 1100 years ago. I would probably have shot better scores and saved a bunch of money.

I have 2 1100's and love 'em to death. one is a 40 year old trap gun with a monte carlo- the other is a brand new "sporting" The different flavors are mostly about stock drop- and consequently the relationship of the pattern to your point . As long as you know where it shoots-- you'll be fine. EG my trap gun shoots way high- the sporting a little high. A field gun usually shoots flat. ie center of the pattern right at the bead. Depends, though, on your body. The reason for this is many target shooters want to see the clay "floating" over the bead to a greater or lesser extent. If you decide you want to try that find "Meadow Industries" on line They make a comb pad with variable shims so you can get comfortable- about $25.00. My first trap gun was an 835 Ultimag with one of these-- and it worked If you get serious and know what you want- that competition synthetic lets you set it up for yourself w\o help from a gunsmith. My Trap model suits me like a glove
