I've missed my Remingtons and been looking for the right one for a little while and I have been very lucky I think.

Yesterday I tripped across a virtually brand new 2005 11-87 Premier Skeet 25" multi choke target barrel.

The owner put it away years ago and had to sell due to 'old age'. I bought it for a very good price considering its condition.

After stripping the gun this morning everything is clean and tight, virtually none of the usual wear marks. The action bar etc still has all the black surface, just a little has been rubbed off where the bolt rests. Everything is essentially as new, just one little cabinet ding on the bottom of the stock.

I will be doing a round of sporting clays and a couple of skeet rounds tomorrow so hopefully everything will work perfectly.

Wish me luck

Congrats R1100, they are lovely. How did it work for you?

No need to post your scores :D

My main gun is a Browning 725 with a 15" length of pull whereas the 11-87 is only 14 1/4 so I need to make sure the stock is fully in my shoulder. I am looking to get a spacer.

My scores have been good with it. 80 from 100 sporting clays on my first shoot and 22 for skeet.

Should have been higher but I kept mis-mounting.

Really enjoying shooting it.

Nice gun. Remington did not list a Premier Skeet model in 1995, so if yours is marked such it may be unusual. Premier with a Skeet tube would be the same gun anyway.

Realised the other day that I was looking at the wrong stamp for the year code.
It has a code of AJ which I think is March 2012 ?

march of 1989 would be correct for a premier skeet marked (AJ)

Thanks for the above.
In that case it's condition for a 31ish year old gun is fantastic. The action, barrel, receiver and forend look and feel brand new.

There are just a couple of small scuffs on the stock that are hardly noticeable.

Looking forward to shooting it again once our Covid lockdown ends. We might be in lockdown until sometime in March. Hopefully not.

Thanks and keep safe

I have barrel code (LI) premier skeet, that has seen untold amounts of 12 ga 1 1/8 rounds through it.
As far as I can remember it has never had a failure, other than few O- rings. the target barrel is designed for lighter loads, because is does not have the pressure compensation system that the
premier field has. Treat it gently and it should last two lifetimes.
Mine was first introduced to tournament life in 1990 at the Forest city gun club in Savanna Ga. and
by the way Premier skeets are water proof, I know because it rained all week at world shoot that
was held Oct.1990. any of you old timers remember?
