Due to health, I may be down sizing to a smaller ga, and was considering a Remington 1100 in a 28 or 410. I am a little confused on the older vs the new models as far as construction and value. I haven’t shot a semi in many years so I’m a little out of date of what available and would appreciate some opinions. Thanks Dave

The old ones were either field models or skeet models, with fixed chokes.The new model has choke tubes.

The .410 models can be finicky about ammunition, especially reloads. At least that’s been my experience. Using new factory ammo should present you with no problems. Both the 410 and the 28 are a delight to shoot.

The 1100 Sporting 410 is a 3" chambered gun. Mine was ejecting a little weakly with my 410, 2 1/2 " reloads, so I had a gunsmith open up the ports just a tad. Now it is reliable.

I have shot both new and old 1100s as far as function and reliability I haven't seen any difference within gauge. I have seen some the 410 be finicky with reloads. Personally I would chose a newer 28 gauge sporting model. The 28 shell is much more capable and with screw chokes it can do the job out to 40+ yards. The only issue with an auto loader is they fling those expensive little hulls a long ways.

I have bought 1100s in 410 & 28 ga in the last year. Have not had time to shoot them much. Both function fine but have used only 3” in the 410. Two of my brothers have the 28 1100. And they perform very well.
I’d get the 28 ga.

I have both old and new 1100s. Recently added a 20 & 410 sporting and love them both. The 20 reliably cycles 2 3/4 low recoil loads and the recoil is very very low imho.
When you add in the cost of 28/410 shells things get expensive fast. I reload the 410 and picking hulls up is a Royal pain.


Now if price is no object and if bending over is not an issue. No worries shoot away. Also if time is an issue reloading will suck up time. Buying 20 is fast and easy

I have a 1100 12 ga sporting, Saturday I shot 1 oz #8 1350 fps loads at sporting clays.
I don't notice any recoil shooting these loads. I find it a joy to shoot. I wouldn't buy anything smaller than 28 ga.

Some of the Bronze models of TriStar are quite handsome and mine has been very reliable. I have a TriStar G2 for duck hunting and it has never missed a beat. Good luck.
