Our Assessment: This is a well cared for old Remington, that is as pleasing to look at as it will be to shoot. Everyone is familiar with the 1100 and this is it's predecessor. The condition is very good for both the external finish and the bore, the stock has a few light dings, but what a great package this is! If you can use a good solid 16 Ga. Remington, with a bit of collector interest, this is it.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California and is C & R eligible.
