Greetings,
I picked up my Dad's 1100 LT-20 (he's 88 and sadly just can't get out anymore). The shotgun has choke tubes, but I couldn't find them all. I purchased a Rem-Choke tube and it is NOT the correct tube. I sent Remington customer service the serial number and asked what type of tube I needed. The said the gun was mfg in 1984, but swear they never put tubes in any 1100 20 ga prior to rem choke in 1987. Well.... I'm looking at a remington barrel with tunes in it!!

Pop keeps telling me he never had a barrel modified for tubes. At 88 he may have forgotten a few things, but when it comes to a favorite shotgun, I want to believe him.

Is anyone out there familiar with mid-80's choke tubes prior to Rem Choke??

The tubes in the barrel are short, like 1 9/16" with very very fine threads.

Do you have a choke tube you can measure and take pictures of now?

That may help.

Also, it may not be the barrel that came with the gun from the factory either.

yes, I have mod and full tubes, just a hair over 1.5 inches long with super fine threads. Also appears to have a thinner wall than Rem Choke.
I am sure this is the original barrel. He bought another barrel in '91-92 to shoot steel shot. The second barrel does have standard rem choke tubes.

Is there a choke designation on the barrel ? If so, the tubes were added. Remington never offered any choke tubes from the factory before RemChokes in 1986, 12 gauge.
If you send a choke tube to Briley's they will tell you what style it is and what fits. If you do not know what you are doing measuring is difficult. Several types have a double lead.
What could have happened... did.
