in my basement of all places! well, my mom basement.

its a really nice semi auto with some fancy mill work on it. the wood is in fantastic condition (especially considering it has not left said basement for at least 12 years). however, it pains me to tell you that the metal is not so great :( there is a handful of rust spots and it does not look like the last person who shot it, cleaned it. there is good news however, the inside of the barrel looks to be in fair condition.

i was wondering if anyone knew any good gunsmiths in the SF/SJ area who would take a look and repair it. i have decided to adopt this orphaned 1100 and will provide a nice home, it will get to blow the living shit out of clays on a weekly basis.

I dont know anyone in the area, but I will tell you that you will love the gun. I have a Remington 1100 Magnum that has been a great field gun. The older ones have nice Fluer de Lise checkering and some nice milled engraving on them. Due to the rust you might have to get a nice matte blue job done, but if you buff the stock with rottenstone to a nice satin look it will match. Just make sure you get some o rings and gas seals, since those might need replacing everyone in a while.

the mill work looks a little like this



except the design is not as wide, but it extends up onto the stainless loading lever.

is there a way to tell what gauge it is?

It will state it on the barrel somewhere.
