Remington 1100 Special and Remington Synthetic stock questions.
I bought a nice 1100 Special a year ago to begin
setting it up for 3 gun. The first thing I bought for
it was the Remington Mossy Oak Synthetic replacement
stock to preserve the gorgeous English stock that came
on the gun.
I just now got around to the install and quickly
found that the synthetic forearm is about 3" too
The package says for all 1100's & 11-87's, 12 ga.
Part number 18609.
It appears to have more material in the front.
I am not opposed to cutting it down, if I thought
it work with the modding, but I will plan on taking
it back to where I bought it, first
Could the "Special" have a different forearm than
the standard 1100's?
Thanks for any input.
When you say “Special” do you mean “Special Field”. All the Special Field 1100s had the”English” Stock (non pistol grip).
On the “Special Field” models the forearm and magazine tube are both shorter than the standard 1100.
Could you cut back the length of the standard forearm you have and make it fit? I have no idea without comparing the 2. Take a look at your longer forearm - If you cut it can you make the back end of it butt up again the receiver and fit in a decent way?
Can you cut material off the front of the forearm so you can screw the mag tube cap on?
I did look about cutting it off at the front,
so since it is a "Special Field" I suppose I
don't have a lot of options.
I think it's doable from what i saw.
I'll let you know how it goes.
I suppose i could look at selling it
to buy a standard 1100...
About 10 seconds on the band saw,
and 30 seconds with a dremel & a
Fit & looks good enough for me!
