Gentlemen, I found a 1100 special field 12 gauge with remchokes the other day in my favorite lgs. I don't remember exactly, but it was in the $400 to $450 range. It was a good feeling gun, and the first I have ever seen in the flesh. It was in good shape, with some bluing wear and a little wear on the stock finish. It looked like it had been backed some and shot little.

What is the word on them? Are they as good as a normal 1100? What are they worth in decent shape? I think I can trade them out of it, but I'm just not sure what one is worth.

Thanks guys.

That is a fair price for a 1100 with remchokes.Ithaca,Winchester and maybe a Remington.
You must have caught that shotgun buying bug that is going around Shotgun World. :lol:

$400-450 would be a good price depending on the extent of the blueing and wood finish ware. If it is at least 90%, that should be good. They are neat guns and seem to be getting harder to find. In another 15 to 20 years that gun will probably be worth twice what it is now. The special field of course has the straight stock, shorter magazine tube and forarm, and either a 21" or 23" barrel. They are a quick handling gun.

Just because I prefer Ithaca pumps doesn't mean that I don't like or appreciate others as well, especially if the price is right. Growing up my daddy was always trading around on shotguns and the "inventory" changed weekly.

Now I'm not quite as bad, but I don't mind trading up either if I can.

Special field models 1100 or 870 are fast sellers in the gunshops.

Thanks for the heads up. I might just saunter over there tomorrow and see what I can do.

I bought one a few weeks ago. I haven't gotten to shoot it yet, but it feels great and seems like a nice shotgun.

Colonel 26, I really like the straight stock. They seem to come up the best for me. Let us know, man! If you buy we have to see pictures. RB {hs#

Colonel, I own a NIB Remington 1100 spec. field in 20 guage with chokes tubes. They seem to carry a premium wherever they come up for sale. I believe Remington quit making them a few years back,but would have to check there web sight. If you like it and can get a good deal you might want to consider it. Marvin

I paid $350 for mine in excellent condition plus an extra barrel. Mine is a fixed choke, though, and I think I got an extremely good deal.

Ryan, from what I've seen you did get a good deal. I won't be able to get back to the lgs until Friday, but I'm going to check it out. I've been thinking that I need a 1100 12 gauge for my occasional sporting clays fiasco. But then I saw this special field, the first I've ever seen and I'm kind of drawn to it. I've never owned a straight stocked gun before.

Well it may not be a clays gun, but if I can get a good deal on it I think I just might do some tradin'.
