Remington model 1100 there is an eagle with its wings spread and the dates 1776 and 1976 the other side has decorative swirls? i guess you'd call it. There is a little triangle with a G inside it then the letter J Then an oval with R.E.P. (I think) with a G after it and another arrow. its a 12 guage. could anyone be so kind as to tell me anything about it i would appreciate it. Thanks so much kim
Your model 1100 was manufactured in 1976. There were three models made the Trap, Skeet or Trade. These were 12ga only models. To know the exact value of this shotgun and which model it is you would need to find a gun dealer that is familiar with Remington Model 1100 shotguns.
Trap and Skeet 100%= $450 98%= $375 95%= $325
Trade 100%= $375 98%= $295 95%= $225
In 1976 the 1100 Bicentennial Trap retailed for $320 ($330 with Monte Carlo Stock), the Skeet retailed for $285, and the Trade retailed for $270.
The Monte Carlo stock is a raised section of the stock like the one here
. They have what I call a "Humpback" look to the stock.
I had a model 1100 as a kid up until I was in my mid 20's (Hard times forced a sell) These are great shotguns that have very little recoil due to the gas system. You have to be careful when disassembling and reassembling the gun as if you nick the O-rings the gun will not function.
