Rem 1989 11-87 SP

Had my veteran 11-87 12 ga. 26" barrel in MO Bottomland refurbished...a number of issues...price was high but it has a lot of sentimental value, along with being a great soft shooter- taken many doves, snipe, ducks, turkey (also my first one!) with it. A couple of sheared extractors, a few O rings and cylinders replaced, but nothing major until this last trip to the bench. The Bottomland camo is rubbed off in a couple of spots but mostly intact. It is a most familiar tool, mounts superbly and I am anxious to get it to the marsh and work again.

Raul,

I had the same gun but not that old though.. . Sure was a good shooter but wouldn't handle the 3.5".....

Good! 1100 was my first scattergun, great pointing gun and reliable.

So, you have a current problem with it? What do you mean 'to the bench' - the workbench?
