Just got back from an auction, after sitting through three hour's of fishing stuff, they finally sold gun's. I bought a Remington 1100 Magnum, with a 30" ventilated rib barrell full choke(fixed). Got this gun for $335.00 seemed like a pertty good deal. It is in very good condition. Does anyone know a website I could punch in a seral number to find out what year it was made in? :thumbsup:

It was a decent buy IMO. Becuase of the full choke only, it is less valuable compared to a 1187 with the chokes. Unfortunately, it'd cost more than it would be worth to tap the barrel and install a choke system. but you have find another used barrel for it like a Mod or IC if you looked around.

98 ramtough, I believe that they made 1100, and 870 magnum's in the 70's, and early 80's for the 3"" load's, and the regular, one's would only accept 2 3/4" shell's. I have a wingmaster that will only take 2 3/4" shell's, and a wingmaster magnum that will take either.

I had an older model 1100 that was chamberd for 3". For upland hunting...id say you scored. Dont shoot steel through it. I killed just about everything that walks or crawls with mine. Ive since handed the gun down to a younger cousin...he still shoots the crap outa of it :thumbsup: Y'all have a nice day! :cool:

But the 3" needs a mag load for it to operate. A 2.75" mag will work but not lighter loads. ANd oh yeah, they made 3" Mags as my Dad had one.

took it out tonight after work and shot it. Worked very well, put 3", and 2 3/4 " loads through it, even shot 1 oz load's very well. Did'nt seem to have any problem's ejecting the low brass at all.

Remington Year of Manufacture Codes maybe found on the barrel of your Remington rifle [or shotgun] on the left side, just forward of the receiver; the first letter of the Code is the month of manufacture, followed by one or two letters which are the year of manufacture. For shotguns with removeable barrels, the code will be valid for the manufacture of the barrel; maybe for the receiver, as barrels do get switched around.

According to the "Blue Book of Gun Values", the coding continues as follows:

Month Codes: [first letter]
B - L - A - C - K - P - O - W - D - E - R - X
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12

Year:______Code: [second (and third*) letters]
1950_______ WW
1951_______ XX
1952_______ YY
1953_______ ZZ
1954_______ A
1955_______ B
1956_______ C
1957_______ D
1958_______ E
1959_______ F

1960_______ G
1961_______ H
1962_______ J
1963_______ K
1964_______ L
1965_______ M
1966_______ N
1967_______ P
1968_______ R
1969_______ S

1970_______ T
1971_______ U
1972_______ W
1973_______ X
1974_______ Y
1975_______ Z
1976_______ I
1977_______ O
1978_______ Q
1979_______ V

1980_______ A
1981_______ B
1982_______ C
1983_______ D
1984_______ E
1985_______ F
1986_______ G
1987_______ H
1988_______ I
1989_______ J

1990_______ K
1991_______ L
1992_______ M
1993_______ N
1994_______ O
1995_______ P
1996_______ Q
1997_______ R
1998_______ S
1999_______ T

* the years 1943 though 1953 had double letters: ie, MM = 1943

As maybe seen, the year code letters duplicate; some knowledge of when the model was introduced should resolve the actual year of manufacture
