Remington 1100 Classic Trap-Shoots Flat?

Hey Bruce, you being an old 1100 kinda of a guy was wondering if you could tell me if the model 1100 Classic Trap gun shoots flat or does the Monte Carlo stock allow it to shoot a bit higher, say around 60/40, thinking I want a reduced recoiling gun as apposed to my BT, any suggestions would be of help.


I don’t have an 1100 Classic Trap at hand, but my 870 TC Trap with the standard (non-Monte Carlo) stock from 1966 shoots flat when you look right down the rib. The rib on my 870 TC is flat without a raised area at the rear. As to the 1100 trap, my guess is that if you sight flat down the rib and the gun has a flat rib, it will shoot flat. If it has a rib that is raised at the rear, then it might shoot a little high. I’m sure that the 1100 trap guns came with both kinds of ribs depending on the year of manufacture.

Or course, you can always make your gun shoot a bit higher by shimming the stock up. The 1100s didn’t (and still don’t) come with stock adjustment shims, but it is easy enough to gerrymander one.
