My remington 1100

Postby fadetoblack188 » Mon Jan 27, 2014 8:47 am

Decided to use my Remington 1100 this season for duck. I just wanna say. This is a great gun!.. Other then the sight heavyness and the regular wood and barrel ( this is why i use the benelli ) . It never jammed once this season. Cycled every single time. Has a fixed mod barrel on it. Shooting black cloud number 4s it performed great.

I used a wood gun all year long. Mud wipes off of it just as easy as it does on plastic :thumbsup:

That is a totally different animal there, one that I have no experience with. Only thing I would think to say is clean it religiously and it will (might? maybe? I don't really know I have never hunted in any) be ok.

All the guns I have are wood and steel and never worry about salt and I regularly hunt a salt marsh, Buy some regular old Johnsons paste wax and wax both the wood and the steel portions, spray a light coat of WD on the internals and youre good to go. Simply putting oil on the external steel parts wont keep the rust away, Why, take a paper cup add a spoon of oil then 3 spoons of water ,what happens, the oil will sit on top. Same thing with a gun the water will work its way under the oil. If the steel is waxed water cant get under it.

BTW I have 3 regular 1100 hundred 12 gauges, 1 20 gauge LT, a 1100 G3 12 gauge and a 1100 G3 20 gauge. The G3s are a step from the regulars and very nice. Ive used 1100s since 1968 and never had one malfunction in any way.

One way to keep the wood like new is to use Canes guns chaps, they no longer make these, but they can be found NOS on ebay, its well worth the money.
