Only if you chop the barrel just in front of the fore end and put a big suppressor on it. That, plus a compressed air powered captive bolt gun and you're set. The goofy pageboy haircut is optional.

But seriously, why not? Remington basically does the same thing with their Competition model. There are plenty of go-fast black parts available, and the 1100 is a known quantity; few to no surprises should crop up.

Not that hard to do. If it's an Express model, you'll need to pop the dimples out of the mag tube. They make extensions and you can buy the barrel.

Easy enough to do just about anything you want to do to it. You can check out MidwayUSA.com and see magazine extensions, tactical stocks, barrels etc. I'm a Mossberg fan for shotguns.

If you buy a 18.5 inch cylinder bore barrel you could probably add a +2 magazine extension. Keep the long barrel so if you want to swap it back to go hunting birds or shoot skeet.

Think about a recoil reducing stock or Limbsaver. I love the Knoxx Spec-Ops but I do not see on for the 1100. Mesa makes a Limbsaver stock with a pistol grip.

Good Luck.

You don't really need one with a gas semi-auto shotgun. And like the AR-15, the recoil spring is in the stock, that's why there are no folders available for the Remington 1100/11-87.

I just like it where I feel almost nothing after firing off a couple of boxes of magnum loads. To each their own.

Yeah, me too. That's why there's one on my 870. They don't make anything like that for the semi-autos.

I'm away from the house at 6:00 am and usually don't get back till around 7:00 pm just in time for supper, taking in some news, spending some time with my bulldogs, a little bit of time with the better half and trying to keep up the place in general. My job does not keep me busy but it demands a lot of my time.

What matter does it make in how I answer a post, my droid, my mickey soft laptop or ubuntu or web tv etc.

There is more than one manufacturer that makes recoil reducing stocks and pads for auto loaders. Agreed that the action of the bolt springing back does greatly reduce the effect and at the same time give you just a little less muzzle velocity. Personally I like pumps, single shots and bolt actions. I like to look, aim, shoot and hit what I'm shooting at.

With less muzzle rise, lets you reacquire a target sooner, spend less time having to steady yourself before the next shot. #00 buckshot not so bad for a herd of wild hogs.

I still don't see why it matters where I am or what time that I reply or post.
Working in the garden, trimming limbs, feeding the animals, working in the shop, visiting with friends all go against plopping my ass down in front of the computer when I get home. With a 2 acre yard for starters, the kennel, my wife and friends.

Taptalk? if they didn't want ya to use it, why did they at the plug-in that makes it happen?

Thanks,

There is so much you can do in modifying a stock weapon. Sometimes it can come down to where do you stop. Next week I get my next bipod. Sure help out on distance shots when using a scope especially when I'm fully loaded with the 10+1 magazine.

Keep it safe. Happy hunting.

Before buying a fixer upper make sure you figure out what your end product ought to be. Buying stocks, mag tube extensions, sights, heat shield and side saddle add up quick. Springs and other parts may need replacing in a used gun as well....

Beware of the money pit, been there with a used Winchester Ranger 12 ga (made it a tactical shotty). I could've bought a new Winchester defender then added a mag tube and side saddle for near the same price as a project gun. I admit it was fun restoring and modifying but $ wise it wasn't the smartest firearms adventure.

Good luck.
