I ran across a couple of 1100's at an estate sale and was wondering when they were made and what they might be worth. One is in .410 with a 25" VR barrel marked full choke 3" plastic shells only. The receiver is marked 1100 LW and what appears to be extra nice scroll work. The checkering on thegrip has the extra wings and is in matt finish. It is in mint condition and appears to have never been fired. SN # P264774H (OK) date code. The second one is in 12ga with a 30" plain barrel marked full 2 3/4 shells. It has the same style scroll and checking work but is in high gloss. SN # N706239V ((AC) date code.I would rate it at 95% NRA.
Any help would be appreciated
THANKS

I would guess around $450 at least or a bit more for the 12. Not sure for the .410 which could go for more depending on rarity and location. 1100's should be worth much more in my opinion considering the cost of a new one and with some of the "budget" offerings today. Make an offer and see what happens.

Thanks for the advise, I ended up giving 1000.00 for the pair. Fair deal to me.

Glad you scored em Mike. Sounds like ya did OK. Own a TB grade 1100 in 12 I use for trap I paid $330 for back in 80. A competition model today is around $1200 or more. Pays to browse the shops for a used model with the fine walnut and high polish bluing but not always easy to find.

Sound like nice second generation guns.
Prefix P ran from 1985 to 1990. OK is July 1990 which would indicate it is likely the original barrel.
Prefix N ran from 1978 to 1985. AC is March 1982( since you indicated a plain barrel and no choke tubes) so it is also likely the original barrel.
I would say you did okay. $300 to $350 for the 12, and the .410s go for a LOT more.

Just thought I would add to this older thread. Prices in my area seem to be holding the same for used 1100 models. A local LGS had 3 in the $400 range including a 2 3/4 inch Skeet model in 20 gauge with 26 inch barrel. Skeet stamped on receiver and could tell anyway by the extra fancy wood. I held back for now as I am aware of the different size gas ports and am leery of firing heavier loads in it with the skeet choked barrel and gas ports. Am tempted to hold off and find a Field model. Hope Virginian can advise me or another 1100 expert.

Is the 20 gauge Skeet model a standard or lightweight model ? Some folk will pay extra for an old standard weight, but be wary as a lot of them have seen a lot of rounds. You are correct the Skeet barrels did have larger gas ports, so heavy loads should be avoided.

Did not say LT on receiver but going to wait for a 3 inch field model so I can use it for Upland game and perhaps for use with buckshot for woods deer hunting. Seem to be many 1100s available in 12 gauge but the 20s tough to come by. Sure was a joy to handle this 20. Sure lighter than my TB Trap with that 30 inch barrel. Thanks for your reply.

LW/LT, serial number ends in U or K. Standard weight, serial number ends in X or N. 1100 Magnums were designed to shoot 2-3/4" and 3" Magnum loads. While many will cycle with lesser loads, many also will NOT. The 20 gauges also were more ammo sensitive than the 12s. I have a 20 ga. LT Magnum, and with the Magnum barrel it will not work with anything less than magnums. With the extra 2-3/4" barrels, one Skeet and one field, it will cycle about anything.
Might want to consider an 11-87.

Yeah was considering the 1187 in 20 if I can locate one with wood or walnut. Seems the 1100s and the 1187 from the past still exhibit good quality with steel receivers. Will jot down the serial letters you gave for future reference. Sure are great handling guns especially in 20 gauge with the 26 inch barrel.
