Remington Model 1100
Category: Shotguns and Smoothbores
If we look at the rifle that is responsible for changing how the American shooters viewed the auto loading shot guns, then we are talking of The Remington Model 1100. This auto loader was the pioneer of combining the repeat shot versatility of earlier models of the century with the smooth, modern lines and quality handling of revered double barrels. The Remington Model 1100 is considered a legacy due to its outstanding balance, durability, handling, and a very soft recoil from the gas operated action. Before the Remington Model 1100 was released for production, its design team spent hundreds of hours testing its work ability and getting input from expert shooters making the 1100 a breakthrough and a very reliable shotgun to buy.
How the Remington gun works
Through a number of ports in the barrel near the end of the fore head, this model bleeds gasses of to operate the action. The gusts then drive a steel action sleeve that blends well with the magazine tube connecting the bolt carrier to the rear and ejecting the spent shell instantaneously. During firing, the carrier release trips from the release of a shell as the action spring pushes the bolt forward to pick the fresh shell and load it into the chamber. The Remington Model 1100 design is basically a gas powered Model 870 with a few modifications to the trigger group to regulate the feed as well as firing. This model efficacy and gas operations reliability relied on the advent of plastic the improved paper shot shells that were able to carry improved coatings.
Design and specifications of the Remington gun Model
The design was said to be very compensating since any 2-3/4" shell could be fired without the need for adjustment in most standard models. Also, it was also possible to use both the 3” and 2-3/4 Magnum shells interchangeably on the Magnum versions.
The carrier release of the Remington 1100, unlike some other semi-automatic shotguns such as the FN SLP whose carrier case is located on the side, is located on the firearm’s underside.
Both the facts that the Remington 1100 is very lightweight and has a 20 2 3/4" gauge chamber enable for the firearm’s ease in recoil and handling. The deep blue polished hardware and the presence of a feather figure and fiddle back in the firearm’s walnut stock all give the gun a fine sense of elegance and style. From its make, it is very unlikely that the gun is a basic weapon but sure it is.
The Remington Model 1100 offers shooters more than enough power and its gas operations gives the gun very soft recoils. Also, this gas metering system is made in such a way that no adjustment will be needed. It is fixed and there are no necessary parts to change regardless of the ammo you want to use. If you have 2 3/4" ammo for instance, there is more than enough latitude that the gas can accommodate. The cut checkering of the gun, location and pattern is impressive. This model offers you enough grip and can never slip in handling.
