12ga. Remington 1100 too heavy?


I shot a friend’s 11-87 Premier & it didn’t seem overly heavy and it handled well. When I bought my own 11-87 Sportsman, it definitely felt different. Maybe it wasn’t the weight, but it didn’t swing or point as well as the Premier. Obviously not an 1100 but similar.

Your friends Premier probably had a light contour barrel and the Sportsman did not. Otherwise they are the same gun, with different finishes.
