Remington Launches the Next Generation of Model 1100™ Autoloaders – the Model 1100 G3 with 2 3/4 and 3-Inch Capability

January 02, 2006

Madison, N.C. – The Remington® Model 1100 autoloading shotgun has earned a solid reputation worldwide on the range and in the field for over four decades and continues today to be the most popular autoloader in the marketplace. Now future generations can count on the same reliability, smooth handling and soft recoil of the Model 1100 in a new, enhanced 2 3/4 and 3-inch version – the Model 1100 G3 in 12 and 20-gauge offerings, delivered in a lockable, hard case.

The performance-driven design of the G3 autoloader makes it capable of handling 2 3/4 and 3-inch shells and incorporates features that enhance the gas-operating system, reduce wear and improve cleaning of the time-proven Model 1100. Starting with the solid carbon steel receiver, the G3 wears a Titanium PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating which provides an attractive, yet durable finish. All internal operating parts (action bars, action bar sleeve, action spring, locking block, hammer, sear and magazine tube) are honed and feature a nickel-plated, Teflon® coating as do the trigger and extended carrier release. Other improvements include a pressure compensated barrel which enables the use of light 2 3/4-inch target loads interchangeably with heavier 3-inch magnum loads and the recoil-dampening R3® Recoil Pad, which significantly lessens felt recoil for quicker target acquisition and follow-up shots.

The 12-gauge versions of the G3 have overbored (diameter of .735 inch) vent rib barrels which utilize the new custom-designed ProBore™ choke tubes. Choice of a 28 or 26-inch barrel length is available with Skeet, Improved Cylinder, Light Modified, Modified and Full ProBore flush choke tubes. The 20-gauge versions feature the versatile Rem® Choke system on the carbon steel vent rib barrel and include Improved Cylinder, Light Modified, Modified, Improved Modified and Full choke tubes with choice of barrel in 28 or 26-inch lengths.

Beyond enhancing the performance, the Model 1100 G3 wears the look of modern elegance with the all new Realwood™ Semi-Fancy carbon fiber laminate stock featuring high gloss finish and stylized machine cut checkering; chrome-finished operating handle; script “R” logo on the grip cap in a contrasting Titanium finish; and the receiver is handsomely embellished with stylized engraving. Completing the G3 package is a high grade travel case ($149 retail value).

It may be time to retire your treasured Remington Model 1100 and upgrade to the next generation – the Model 1100 G3 autoloading shotgun available at a suggested retail price of $1065.
