    Interesting. I only have experience with my 11-87 Express, and the button there was a complete pain in the arse.

    Extra ammo and a light. I am guessing you have a 4 round mag capacity in standard configuration. Find a way to have extra ammo. Consider a mag extension or side-saddle carrier. Mag extension means you reload less. Side saddle lets you top off more easily. Or you can use a satchel/man-purse to throw over your shoulder. Before I was tactical I used a canteen cover and web belt. Now I use a dump pouch. A Streamlight light mount that fits on the mag tube gives you a rail to mount a light. It sticks way out so be prepared for that.

    LT-20 Rem 1100 Easy Mods

    Its possible to do some basic mods to an 1100 and end up with a very usable defensive duty shotgun.
    This started as a standard LT-20 skeet gun that I wanted to repurpose for my wife's safe room gun. Fitted the stock (including a kick reducer) to fit her in length and pitch, added the tube to give her 2 extra rounds of low-recoil buck and the choke tube to get the pattern I wanted, put the light on it for if she needed it in the dark, and a big head safety and bolt handle to make it easier to manipulate, and did a complete action job to make it ultra reliable. She'll never get in a running fight and need to reload, so those parts are unnecessary. All in all, useful and simple for a "woman of later years".

    Your gun is about where I'll net out with this one. I'm hanging on to it for my son who got it from an uncle so I can't really cut it up. The new barrel will handle the current unpleasantness. Once things settle down a bit, I'll grab another lower for a proper build and put this one back on bird detail.

    You're right... that was the plan.
    When I sell it someday it will be useable to the buyer "as is" or easily put back in original configuration.

    This is the way. I have never been a fan of any of the easy loaders on any of my 1100s or 1187s. I prefer the 1187 to the 1100.
