Remington Model 11-87

The Remington 11-87 is a semi-automatic shotgun manufactured by Remington Arms. It is based on the Remington 1100 and was first announced in 1987; the 11-87 is a gas operated semi-automatic shotgun, meaning that some of the high-pressure gases from the burning gunpowder are diverted through two small holes in the underside of the barrel. The gases force a piston toward the rear of the shotgun. A spring forces the bolt forward, sending a new shell from the magazine into the chamber; this gas operation has the effect of reducing the recoil felt by the shooter, since the total recoil energy is spread out over a longer period of time than would be the case with fixed breech shotguns. The 11-87 incorporates a self-compensating gas system design, which allows the gun to operate with every type of load, from light 2 ¾" to 3" Magnum shells without any shooter adjustments, it is manufactured in two different gauges: 20 and 12, both will cycle 2 ¾" and 3" shells. Some 11-87 shotguns those with barrels shorter than 26", or Magnum models, may have issues cycling light target and birdshot loads consistently.

The 12 gauge 3-1/2" SuperMag and 20 gauge Magnum models come with an extra component on the magazine tube called a "barrel seal activator" that helps cycle lighter loads. Failure to remove the barrel seal activator before firing 2 3/4" magnum, 3", 3 1/2" loads may bring pressure to dangerous levels which could damage the gun. A Super Magnum version has been introduced to operate with the newer 3 ½" 12 gauge shells; some 11-87s have interchangeable screw-in chokes. Most barrels are not interchangeable between 11-87 models. Barrel lengths range from the police 14 in to 30 in; the weapon found widespread notoriety when a sound-suppressed version of it was used by the main antagonist in the Coen brothers' film No Country for Old Men, based on the Cormac McCarthy novel.
