The Remington model 1100 is 50 years old this year. Introduced in 1963, the autoloading shotgun is as big an icon in the shooting world as the model 870 pump shotgun and the model 700 rifle.
For 2013, Remington is selling a limited edition model 1100 to commemorate the gun’s 50th anniversary of production. Each of the guns will have 1963 as a serial number prefix.
The guns will have a “machine cut engraved receiver with gold fill” in a design based on the 2,000,000th model 1100, which is on display in the company’s museum. The stocks will be made of B-grade walnut with a white diamond grip cap and while line spacer.
All of the guns will have a 28″ vent rib barrel and will ship in a hard green case. MSRP is $1999.
