So figured I share this on here I bought a Don Talbot engraved Remington 700 Grade IV last year and it has been at the Remington Custom Shop since getting reworked with a few upgrades. Since I had a exhibition blank of American Black I'm re-stocking the rifle and re-barreling it since a 416 mag is not going to work. With the left over stock I will build a 700 Grade II out of it and end up with 2 700 high grades.

gold inlay floor plate
24" barrel chambered in 7mm mag
high polished blue
classic straight comb stock
shadowline cheek piece
engraved skeleton buttplate & gripcap
fluer-de-lis checkering
oil finish

I would venture that you probably already have, and if not certainly will, spend more on just what you`ve done and will do with one gun than I`ve spent total purchasing every gun I`ve ever owned! Beautiful stuff! :D

Both 20 gauge model 11-87’s I owned shot too low for me. The LH1100 in 20 also shoots a bit low but not as bad as the former 11-87’s. I will be first in line for a 20 gauge V3 but until someone new takes over the company and puts the bean counters back in the closet, that may not be happening.

A prominent poster on SW, someone who is most probably in the know, has somewhat obliquely alluded to the distinct possibility that the statement in bold may not be accurate! :D

^^^ I sincerely hope so!

With the surge in smaller gauges for turkey & waterfowl hunting (thanks to HTL pellets) I would see the basis for both turkey and Pro Waterfowl models.

With the synthetic model now having shims, any “low shooting” issues could be remedied.

Yes, we can all hope! They`re good, solid field and light clays guns, mea. My walnut makes it hard to pull anything else out of the closet!

I have to say my granddad’s, now my, 20ga 1100LT from the late ‘70s is more gun than I’ve seen on the shelves in recent years. I’d like to buy a new one for my boy but I’m not seeing the same quality of bluing, wood, or fit and finish.

In this picture I just mounted a new Remmy pad. It’s a bit proud as I haven’t ground it to fit yet. Everything else is original. I believe it’s of ‘77 or ‘78 manufacture.
