11-87 will use both the 2 3/4" or 3" shell , same gun, same barrel ,
1100 is either a 2 3/4" gun or a 3" magnum gun, can't interchange shell lenght on the 1100 like on the 11-87 , some people say the 1100 balances better but I can't tell the difference

They have different gas systems. The 11-87 is an updated and improved version of the 1100. It will shoot light target loads and heavy magnum loads without adjustment. The 1100 required one gun for magnums and another for standard loads. The 11-87 has screw-in choke tubes. Some of the 1100's had them but the majority of early guns didn't. That said, I like the 1100's better, especially those with fixed choke tubes. They seemed to swing quicker and smoother for me. I sold my 11-87 but have kept two 1100's.

Question
What is the difference between the Model 1100 and Model 1187?

Answer
In 1987, the new gas compensated 1187 was introduced. The 1100 and the 1187 are similar in design. Barrels are not interchangeable between these models.

The gas cylinders are welded in slightly different locations. This is partly because the 11-87 has a longer magazine tube. The 11-87 also has 2 gas orifice holes. Only the 2-3/4 inch chambered version of the 1100 will have two. The magnum 1100 barrel has only one.

The 1100 can shoot only 2 3/4" or 3" shells depending on the barrel installed, and with the 1187 models with magnum barrels can shoot both 2 3/4" and 3" shells. To accomplish this, two additional holes are drilled in the top/front of the gas cylinder, and covered with a tempered steel spring. There is a relief cut made into the gas cylinder to accommodate the spring. The Model 1100 gas cylinder will not have the relief cut or the spring.

The Model 11-87 also has a slightly longer barrel extension. This is the part that connects directly into the receiver.

All above is right on
I like the older 1100s also
add a Remchoke steel shot barrel
and you can shoot 3 inch steel
and 2 3/4 lead good allaround

The 11-87 will shoot 2 3/4", 3" and 3 1/2". But you will have to change the gas ring to shoot the 2 3/4" loads.

Thanks guys, that was a big help. I had a customer that wanted an 1100 slug gun with a rifled barrel. I told him that Remington only made the 11-87 with a slug barrel. He asked me what the difference was and I just stood there with a dumb look on my face, not knowing.
Once again the experts help out.
Thanks
Jess
