Now there's some commentary that makes sense. On the other hand, I've come full-circle to the place where I now consider myself a hyphenated American (Redneck-American). It seems that all manner of logic, reason, and accountability have begun their mass-exidus in this fine nation, and while I'd certainly never allow ethnic lines to separate me from my natural citizenship, identifying myself in the same category as the vast majority of those who dwell in Los Angeles has become a point of embarassment.

I have a premier and the only problem I have ever had was a cracked firing pin, after about 20,000 shells. I bought a super mag last year and have put around 1,000 shells through it with no problems, until I was messing with it and dry firing it at the tv while watching duck hunting show (dont ask), cracked the firing pin. But its never had a problem with 2.75" 7/8oz target loads, up to 3.5" magnum turkey loads. It is not the waterfowl one though, its the dicks sporting goods exclusive.

That premier is a great gun. Who knows, maybe Remington cleaned up in the last couple of years but I'll never know. After my problems with the waterfowl version, I'll never own another one.

I have hunted waterfowl for 50 years and Remington has always been my gun the 48 58 1100 1187. The 1100 was the best of the bunch. But in the last 6 to 8 years the quality of there shotguns have gone straight down hill. Remington used to say there guns were good for 20 years, now its down to 5 years. There is nothing wrong with the 11-87 because 99% of the parts will fit a 1100. I will buy any 11-87 just for the parts.

I could write a book on what can and DOES happen to an 11-87...and as an avid waterfowler, it always happens when duck season is peaking and you can't get the part of God forbid you need warranty service because then your duck season is over and you'll be using a backup gun for the rest of it. here's a list off the top of my head...

broken link
broken extractor
bolt handle flying out (this hap'd to my dad's gun in the field 2 wks ago and i'm gonna use my metal detector to locate it)
broken gas piston ring
stock becoming so loose i'm like *** (but easily fixed)
and drum roll please...

not 1, not 2 but 3 cracked/broken light contour barrels...all cracking at the gas cylinder collar and coming clean off while shooting at a flock of ducks...

I will hand it to Remington for at least sending me two new barrels under warranty - the third one, however is probably after my warranty had expired but that's not the reason why the gun is sitting in storage without a new barrel. I honestly just don't feel like calling them or doing anything about it. Very sweet soft-shooting gun when it's working. Doesn't work though. Bought a Beretta, not looking back. Good luck yo.

This late season I watched a bolt handle fly out. We searched around for a half hour but finally recovered it. Last day of goose season he called again telling me his bolt handle flew out again. With a few inches of the white stuff on the ground he never found it.

The older 1100's are fantastic guns. My dad still has one, I think the 2"3/4 with a full fixed choke and I have never once had a problem with that gun, and he isn't much of a hunter so the guns rarely get cleaned. Shoot clays in league last year, one guy had the same with gun, and never once had a problem. I think they are at least 20 some odd years old, and not a spot of rust, or anything that even resembles wear, my 11-87 rusted within the first few months of owning it. Currently looking for a replacement.

congrats to you jim 1752, on every study ive read on inbreeding the life span is normally 45-48 years. your parents[brother/sister]must have been the rare exception in gene quality. the banjo gods have smiled upon you.
