Remington 1100 for $340. Clean barrel, action still looks pretty fresh. How should I modify this? I'm hoping for an all-purpose gun that will work for Turkey and HD.

How many shells does that magazine extension allow? What is the length of that barrel?

I'm looking for a magazine extention to match the length of my current barrel. Would that be a 7 shot, 8 shot or 10 shot?

How long is the barrel? Looks like a 28"? It should be a 4 in the tube, 1 in the chamber as it sits but it could have a 2 shot plug in it. If it has the plug, it was used for bird hunting. Does it have the Rem Choke or is it a fixed choke barrel? Easy to check, the muzzle will have 4 indentions if its a removable choke (Rem Choke).

As for a mag extension, unless you really think zombies are coming in your home, 5 rounds should be more than enough. Get a speed feed stock if you need more.

ForTehNguyen's (1100 TAC-2) picture is an 18.5" barrel with a +3 extension. The TAC-4 (what I have) has a 22" barrel and a +4 extension.

I like the Dave's Metal Works (DMW) oversized bolt handle better than the Choate FWIW. The DMW Easyloader is also a worthwhile investment if you're looking for fast reloads with an 1100.

It's longer than 26". I do know that. Yes, it has a rem. choke. Chokes are something I don't know a lot about other than it changes the shot pattern. What I'd like to know is what shot can you use/not use with various chokes. Would it damage the gun to shoot it with the choke removed? Also, I'm assuming slugs and chokes are a no-no.

right now I think it has a plug in the magazine as I can only hold 2+1. I'm trying to figure out how to remove this but am not getting much help through the Almighty Google.

It's probably a 28" barrel.

Do NOT shoot it without a choke installed!

You can shoot slugs through chokes, just make sure they are pretty open (modified at most, cylinder or improved-cylinder would be ideal).

The choke and shot size will differ depending on what you're doing and the distance you're planning to shoot. Turkey loads will use full or extra full chokes. Bird hunting will use improved-cylinder or modified mostly. For clay shooting you'll use all or any of them depending on the distance of your shots. For HD duty, stick to cylinder or improved-cylinder.

To remove the plug, just unscrew the cap on the end of the mag tube. If it's a newer gun you'll have to push in the plastic spring retainer and turn it to line up the slots, then it'll come out the end (under spring pressure, so don't let it fly off). Then just point the gun down and the plug will slide right out.
