    New trap gun

    An honest to goodness trap gun.
    I know it is, because it says trap right on it.

    I think the old guys at the club figured I should get a break action, but this one was in budget. (I got the feeling they weren't 1100 fans)

    It came in the mail yesterday.
    I shot 4 rounds at home, and couldn't wait to shoot a round (which is a wednesday night thing), so since I have keys, out to the trap club I went.
    I patterned it (which I've never done before) and shot 4 boxes to try and get it figured out.
    I figured out the shortened stock was way too short.
    Luckily I bought a monte carlo stock at a gunshow last year, so I had a replacement.
    I restrained myself from going back out tonight, so tomorrow I'll test it out again.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    I think the previous owner was riding on the back of a motorcycle when he cut the stock down.

    Pretty gun, but that stock looks like my father-in-law cut it with a rock.
    He could get a cut like that in a mitre saw.

    I am going to steal that line and use it from now on.

    I'm just trying to figure out the sequence of events that led to this series of cuts...
    I think he was using a hacksaw, and came in from both sides, and it got away from him both times. (*or she/her. Didn't mean to assume gender...)

    Well done! If anyone gives you grief about shooting an 1100, ask them what gun Daro Handy used to shoot his record 505 straight form the 27 yard line.

    What year is it? Does it have choke tubes? Does the barrel have the knock down pin on the extension?

    When you clean her push the trigger group pins out with the ejection port down. This will help keep the shell latch from coming unstaked. Also when cleaning be careful of the rails on the inside of the receiver. The wishbone moving back and forth each time the gun fires hones them to a razor edge. One of the major causes of poor cycling is crud build up in the action tube. You have to take the stock off to clean that. When that spring comes out you’ll wonder how you’re going to get it back in.

    I did my best shooting years ago with an 1100. Hope you have as much fun and luck with yours as I had with mine. If you have any questions on it feel free to ask

    Judging from the depth of the counterbore on the stock bolt hole there’s not a lot of room for another cut to clean that mess up. If you can fix it up there should be a market for it. Lots of kids and small framed ladies get their starts shooting 1100’s

    My father has a very similar 1100, with the magnum 3" action and what seems like a 4' barrel lol, I always thought they're quite the deal for the low price they go for now.
