Just picked up two 1100's for $650. One's a 12 and the other a 20 gauge. What do you think they are worth??

3"?? Mag? 28" barrels? Scuffs, chips, scratches? Barrel/receiver condition? Blueing ok? Any rust?

Hard to tell from one pic but It looks like you got a great deal.

Take a look at gun broker. If they are fixed choke with a 2-3/4" chamber then what you paid is about right. If they shoot well in your hands then you have a couple of good shotguns. Remington 1100s are ubiquitous, probably the most commonly encountered semi-auto 20-30 years ago. Easy to care for and parts are available. Take a look on u-tube there are plenty of care and troubleshooting videos.

If they are in reasonably good shape, then I'd say as a pair you made an excellent deal.

By way of comparison I paid $460 for a super clean 1990's vintage 12 gauge 1100 within the past couple of months and felt like I did well, especially considering what all came with it.

Thanks for the input. I felt it was a good buy. I didn't even question it.. Everything I've read said that the 1100's are good shooting and nice to handle shotguns.

+1 ... Over the years I have/had 7 1100s. I still compete with one for the 12ga events.

I just sold the same model of 1100 that you have there for 375, had other rpojects to complete, otherwise I wouldn't have sold it as cheap or would've kept it for sure. I think you got a smokin deal.

Got yourself a pair of shotguns that will last you a lifetime.

I love 1100's

I'd like to add that I bought my son a late 70's 1100 in excellent condition for $280! Just got lucky and found it at a gun shop all prettied up on their used rack. Two like that for $650 - you did good.

Shot it at BJL's skeet clinic and the thing is awesome. Shoots like butter (butter shoots real good). You'll love your 1100s.

You paid the going rate. Good deal for a couple of good shotguns. Enjoy them!
