Hello Shotgun Emporium,

I just picked up a Remington 1100 Classic Trap on Gunbroker. Confirmed through Remington (via serial#) it was made in August 2010. Pictures look really good and description says it is in excellent condition.

1. In one picture, there looks to be some scratches to the finish on the forend (see attached image). Obviously not sure how deep they are until I actually get the gun, but assuming they are not down to the wood, do you have any suggestions on hi-gloss polish repair? Is Birchwood Casey my best bet?

2. On another note, I of course intend this gun to be my dedicated trap gun. However, every now and then I like to dabble in skeet. Given the Monte Carlo stock which typically allows the gun to shoot high for trap, if I were to put an adjustable buttplate on the back, would lowering the buttpad also lower the point of impact making it suitable as a skeet gun?

3. Do all 1100 Classic Traps have a shell deflector built in? I am hesitant to get a Birchwood Casey shell catcher because I dont want to cover up the beautiful scroll work on the receiver. Sounds silly, I know, but I find those things tacky looking...wish they came out with a blued version, then maybe I would consider it.

Any other thoughts, suggestions, experiences would be great! Thanks!

I don't see any scratches. If you do get a surface scratch, automotive scratch remover is the way to go.
You would do better to get a second buttstock. A buttplate will not change the Monte Carlo cheek pad.
Should have a deflector pin. A black rubber band around the receiver always worked for me when I shot trap with any of my 1100s.

Thanks for the reply. Perhaps its just the glare of the hi-gloss, but the top corner of the forend looks pretty scratched up. Hopefully I am wrong!

I suppose trap is what I will stick to considering its a trap gun. I could see the Monte Carlo stock really throwing my skeet game out of wack.

Looks like reflection off hi gloss to me. Good luck.

I agree with Virginian.....looks like nice grain and gloss finish to me.

I agree with Virginian. Just get another stock and you'll have no trouble using it for skeet. Takes about two minutes to swap stocks.

Do you guys find Monte Carlo stocks to put you at a disadvantage when shooting sporting clays? I'm sure it can be shooter specific, but it seems like most like a standard stock rather than a raised comb.

I can't hit crap at anything with a shotgun with a Monte Carlo comb. Fine on a Weatherby Mark V.

I see some folks shooting a trap stock for sporting, but not many.

You will just have to try it at skeet to see if you like it. I find that Trap stocks usually fit me better than field stocks, and I don't shoot very much trap, do mostly skeet and sporting.
