Your only concern will be finding the empties it's going fling into the next zip code.

I agree and one of the reasons I sold mine. That said, Remington always seemed to put killer wood on those sporting guns, mine was no exception.

Hi,

Nope, empties fly into the next county. Not a great choice of gun for the reloader..............

Hi,

Because the ejection is so vigorous, the hulls fly a good long distance into the grass and weeds making finding them a real problem. I much prefer the extractors on my SxS. I always know where the hulls are.

I've never been able to find more than 3/4 of the empties even when watching my buddy shoot his Remington 1100 28ga. And them empties ain't cheap at .20 cents a hull.

Let me know if you don't buy it!! I would love to have it. That is a fine 28 gauge even if you do have to chase the empty hulls.

I have a gunney sack full of once fired Remington SP 28 ga hulls that I use in mine. If they get lost, no big deal. By the way, the .410 throws them even further

Leaving the O ring out or going with a smaller O ring can reduce the ejection distance. I always preferred the 25" barrel on the earlier 28 gauge 1100s. Just personal preference.

Buy it if the price is halfway decent. It's a great sub-gauge clays gun and a dove killer. And mucho fun to shoot. 1100's work just fine with routine maintenance.

Absolutely! Mine was awesome for sporting clays; heavy, gas action, 28 gauge;m I could get my reloads to land within 3 feet of me, but factory - especially the AA sporting loads at 1300 flew into the next time zone..........

Sold mine and had sellers remorse. Bought another. They are excellent shotguns. I use mine mostly for doves. Yes you will loose some empties, but they’re still making them, so not the end of the world.

I've had one for 10 years or so. It is, the most fun, 5 stand gun that I own.

With the breakup of Remington due to the bankruptcy, who can say if they’ll ever be made again. Already folks are jacking up the prices on all the older Remington shotguns, especially the small bores. Buy ‘em now if you want one!
