Where do you buy a new 1100 Sporting Barrel for my 25 year old Rem 1100?
I was told by the factory that the unreliable shell ejection of my 1100 was because it was not designed for light target loads. My gun only wants to eject 3 1/4 Dram, 1 1/8 oz shells. It doesn't work with anything else. So the factory said I needed a target barrel for Sporting Clays. Where do you get one and will it fit my 25 year old Rem 1100?

I hate to dash your hope but this happened to me very recently. I had a standard weight 20 gauge Remington 1100 which came with a 28 inch full choke barrel. I contacted Remington to see if a replacement barrel could be purchased with the rem-choke installed. I supplied them with the serial number to assist them in determining the year of manuifacture. After four or five days I recieved a e-mail where they advised that the gun was made in 1977 and that none of their replacement barrels would work due to the slight changes made in the gas operated systems. I was lucky and located a used barrel in improved cylinder through a gunsmith it was not exactly what I wanted but it will do for now. :)
