    I don't think there's a knockdown pin, but that is assuming I'd know it if I saw it...

    And as far as what year it is, I don't know.
    I googled it, and am not any wiser.
    The serial number on the receiver starts with an "M" and ends with a "v"
    And it doesn't have choke tubes, it says "mod trap", so I don't know if that's the choke description or a marking to say that it's a trap model. (I assume the former.)

    Are they like the 870 where there is a double number/digit on the barrel that translates into a year of manufacture? Must admit I've never looked at mine.

    I bought a used 11-87 for my first real clays gun (not counting the SXP Trap, which was more a family gun). Cabelas had 2 lefties in the Library. I picked the fancier one first, then noticed that the rib was separated in 3 spots, so I exchanged it for the plain one.

    Heavy gun, and a good shooter.

    I did replace the recoil spring, but I tend to replace action springs on used guns out of habit, and picked up a few spare O-rings.

    It's certainly a dead simple gas system, but it runs like a champ which is probably why Remington hasn't been able to kill it off, despite its replacement having been around some years.

    Nice 1100, I shot one for a number of years. It was a 3" that I used for geese, till I let a BIL talk me out of it.

    Zooming in on your picture I can see you had a knock down pin. Look on the side of the barrel extension visible through the ejection port. You’ll see a small round spot. I cant tell if it has Ben ground down or removed.

    The Mod Trap is a constriction more for 16 yard targets. I couldn’t tell you how many thou, I’d hit the patttern board and ask the guys over on TS.com. If you centered how was the hit? Dust or just chips?

    There is a hole there, so I'm going to say the pin was removed. Do they press in, or thread in?
    When I got a good hit, they really exploded in a satisfying way, but i guess it wasn't as dusty as when someone else really nailed one.

    Quick google search turned this up

    Looks like it’s the same constriction as a mod barrel but with a rib set up for trap. It not going to vaporize a 16 yard target like a full choke but the center diameter of your pattern’s core will be larger. I guess you might gain the odd extra bird. That is not a common barrel.

    Someone pulled out the knock down pin. It was pressed in. You may find that it will fling that hull a lot further than you want. If so then either invest in a hull catcher or get another pin. Some people get really upset if a hull from the shooter on the left hits them or their gun

    I think I'll have to find a catcher.

    Thanks for the detective work R&R Rancher.
    I appreciate it.

    T&S makes a clip on shell catcher. I much preferred the piano wife one I had installed back when





    Works great but requires a gunsmith who knows what he’s doing to install one
