In 1967, the Remington Model 1100 forever changed the way American shooters viewed autoloading shotguns. It was the first autoloader to combine the repeat-shot versatility of early-century models with the sleek, modern lines and handling qualities of revered double barrels. It’s been a field-proven favorite ever since. Its superb balance, handling, durability and soft recoil from the gas operated action are the foundation of the Remington autoloading legacy. In 2004, Remington added a new 20-gauge model in the Classic Field design.
Model 11-87: RELIABILITY WITH 3 1/2 " CAPABILITY.
In 1987, Remington introduced the Model 11-87. The unmatched versatility of the Model 11-87 Super Magnum results from the unique metering system of its patented gas-operated action. With 2 3/4" field loads, an integral pressure relief valve remains closed, utilizing all of the shell’s pressure to operate the action. When heavier shells are used, the valve opens proportionately to release the unneeded pressure – retaining just the right amount to operate the action. This not only assures reliable handling of all shell sizes, but prevents excessive bolt velocity that could increase wear. Cumulative production total for the Remington 1100 and 11-87 exceeds 4.5 million.
