seen a 28 gauge 1100 that was in perfect shape $1100,gun was 25 years old I think.I just cannot understand why these shotguns are so expensive,is the collector value that great,you can buy a new sporting 28 for that I've seen them on gun broker and guns international going for around $1050 all the time,my wife likes the 1100 I want one so I guess we"ll pay it.Is there one grade better then the others,I would like all my 1100 to match that's why I don't just buy a new one,the sporting models do look nice.

I wondered the same thing and ended up buying 4 new sporting model 1100s and found one in 16 that looked identical except for the pad and just had the pad changed. Now have 5 that match. All the new ones were around $1,025 each.

Some prefer the “look” of the older ones with the slick RKW DuPont finish, white line accents, roll stamp engraving on the receiver and fixed chokes. Some may even prefer the pressed checkering. Other than that, I can’t explain it

A lot of folks also like the 28 gauge with that old 25" barrel.

I agree because that one even had a barrel cut off to 20 inches and CTs installed. Unbelievable!

Armslist Dallas has one listed for $500.00, obo, “basically brand new...”
Been there several days. May be too good to be true.
