Which one fits you the best? Both are good guns.

I've never used the a300 but I can sure give a thumbs up to the 1187

I like Chevy's but I drive a Ford.....

all kidding aside, I think the year the 11-87 was built holds a lot of weight....I hear the Remington's of today are not what they once were......

No experience with the A300 but my 1187SM was a champ. Still regretting selling it.

Remington just ain't what it used to be the fit and finish and most importantly the metal quality is no where near where they were. The guns we grew up on a5 and wing masters were made to last generations. On the other hand the american Berettas are not quite the quality of their Italian made guns. Both workhorses but I would lean Beretta for light weight and finish. I'm sure you will be happy either way I also want to try a new franchi affinity their max 4 camp 20ga is awful tempting I wish beretta would make the max 4 a300 in a 20ga I would buy one in a second for teal and divers good luck

My son has left handed 1187 and unfortunately rarely cleans it. But it never misses a beat with magnum loads but does struggle some one light loads. The gunk in it probably has something to do with it.

Bought my 11-87 SP in 1988, still chugging along after much abuse.

I bought a 11-87 3 years ago brand NEW from Mack's Prairie Wings and it wouldn't feed 3" shells. It shot 2 3/4" dove loads fine but the action wouldn't close with 3" shells. Remington really has gone to crap and I'm a huge Remington fan.

I'm a fan of both brands, owning/having owned several of each. I'd say it depends.

If the 11-87 is a 3" gun, then it's a tossup. If the 11-87 is a 3.5" gun, then the nod goes to the A300.
