Default Help with my first shotgun, should i get this one?

Hello, i am going to buy my first shotgun. I went trap shooting for the first time a while ago and loved it, i have a tight budget, but i wanted to get an 1100, i found one that is only $350, it has a 28" barrel and a full choke, the only thing wrong with it is some 'peppering' on the end of the barrel

i dont know what this is, and if its a real problem or just a cosmetic thing

i dont care about cosmetic things, but if this is something that progresses or is serious, then i might not want to buy this one

can you help

thanks

If that is the only defect, $350 is a pretty fair price. The 1100 is one of the most naturally pointing shotguns I have ever used. My brother has one. I almost cannot miss with that shotgun. It just works.

I agree with robocop. Buy it for $350.

If the barrel really bothers you, you can easily get a replacement 1100 barrel. A new barrel will install in about 60 seconds with no gunsmithing needed. - Q.C.
