Following World War II, new firearms took advantage of such wartime technology as gas operation. By siphoning off some of the propellant gasses to work the action, these guns spread out recoil and provided reliable cycling of various types of shells. Though not the first made (Sears’ High-Standard Supermatic was), the 1100 was Remington’s breakthrough gas-operated shotgun. It was widely embraced by clay-target shooters for its soft recoil; hunters enjoyed its excellent performance in the field.
