Guy has one that he wants to sell.

It is a 12ga Remington 1100 Special Blued with wood stock and 18 or 20in barrel(not sure of length) with screw in choke.

-The stock has a big chunk cracked out of the butt. Needs to be replaced.
-There is some surface rust on it also. Not terrible but would need to be fixed to be "Right"


So what should I offer for it. Dont really need it just trying to help him out and get myself another gun for the collection.

Thanks

$250.00-$300.00 tops English upland game stocks are not easy to find.

Rare model. Stocks if not available from Rem may be unobtainable. Barrel is worth big bucks on the market. I think choke models are 23" and fixed chokes 21".

What makes this a rare model?

Forgot to add that the stock is straight and doesnt have the "curve" where you grip it.

Thanks

It's an upland special. They made only a handful of those and only for a few years. First ones were fixed choke. Later were 1100's with Remchoke. Final ones were 1187's with Remchoke. It's a gun designed for close quarters and flushing birds. Ideal for that.

Old Painless owns one.

Priceless. They don't make Remington shotguns like they used to.

So I bought it for $225.00

Looked at it again and it isnt the stock that is cracked it is the black butt pad that has a chunk missing out of it but the wood id fine.

What should I do about the slight surface rust? Leave it or re-finish it? Will re-finishing it hurt the value of it?

Thanks

Use a copper penny(pre ~82) to remove any visible surface rust it should not hurt the bluing. Then coat it with a metal preservative like tuf cloth.

I bought a Remington 20 gauge Special Field 1100 LT for $500 back in '95? or so. Only had it for an hour or so. Leaned it in the corner and came back for it a little while later and it was gone!

Now, the wife picked one up, SAME DAY,! Won't tell me where she got it or how much she gave for it, but it's exactly like the one I lost! I wish I still had mine, but she lets me shoot hers whenever I want

Been looking for a mate for it, never have found one close to new for a decent price. Sweetest little shotguns made!
