CO2 gun, .38 bore, uses small re-usable plastic shotshells loaded with shot and closed with wads at each end. Seriously limited in practical power except for very close range, these were marketed as a backyard aerial target shooter with reusable plastic 'clay birds' that popped apart when hit.
This is the Cat's meow for shooting Bee's that are always bothering you....You can shoot them flying..with the 1100....

crossman 1100 trapmaster shotgun
October 4 2003, 10:45 PM
The crossman 1100 shotgun is somewhat weak in power until you load in a 3.75 round diam. ball, then it becomes a monster in power and is extremely accurate.

I've got 2 of these in near mint condition. They are a lot of fun. It's great to show a young gunner how to use and respect a firearm. the 1100 shotguns feel like the real thing. they are about the size between a .410 and a 20 Ga. they have real wood stocks, full rib. they take 2 co2 cylinders back to back in the forarm. they have 2 settings for air power. i bought these 2 1100's in I think about 1973. mike

1100 shot shells
March 16 2005, 9:44 PM
Dennis Quakenbush made a shot pistol that uses the 1100 shot shells. I have one and it is awesome. It shoots the shot or the .375 round ball. This gun was made from the crosman ssp250. It is great for shooting the bees, more so than the rifle. I also have the crosman 1100 with the trap thrower and over two hundred rounds of ammo. I also have a reloading block with 12 aluninum shot shells with reloading capabiltys from Kendon pellet gun repair in Montana. They make aluminum shells, wads, and reloading block with tool. I also have two boxes (50) of the break apart traps.

Hi, I'm confused. Many guys praising this gun and another rates it as a weekshooter unless you do this and that. I have never seen one; just what are it's mfg specs? How many bucks are needed to buy a new one provided there is current production? Are they tough or need constant care? I was too lazy to search out this info on the internet. Is there a place I should go and get educated? The picture doesn't thrill me; I need to be sold---Walter---
The Crosman Trapmaster 1100 is a novelty for sure,but it is a sought after collectable as well...It was only in production from 1968-1971.It was available with a skeet thrower and break apart targets,and a re-loading kit...I am fortunate to have all three....It was marketed as a (beginers shotgun) for young people that wanted to learn to skeet shoot..Stock it can propel a lead .375 roundball or 3/8"steel shot at 3-4 hundred feet per second,(depending on temperature,,,the higher the temp,,the higher the F.P.S. 40*-80*F).It IS fun to shoot ,,but as I say it is a collectable novelty,and can be purchased at some auctions.....the better the condition and the more accessories...The higher the price....A stand alone 1100 with No shells or access. depending on condition should go for $100 - $200 I.M.H.O...With ORIGINAL Shotshells,and RE-LOADING KIT I have seen the combo bring $450-$550 at auction...I have Never seen it up for Auction in 95% or better shape with Skeet Thrower AND Re-Loading Kit with Original Shotshells, Stock Tool, box, and paper work..That would be an interesting auction,watching Crosman collectors....The Problem shooting these (Fun Guns) is Crosman stopped making the original Red,Green,and Yellow,Shotshells more than a dozen years ago....Which now bring a nice price for the Original shells at $35-$50 per 100...Good thing someone bought the original shotshell stamping machines and now makes and sells (THE CLEAR Aftermarket shotshells) for about $25 Per 100....It's a good thing you can get more than 2 uses from each shell....I also bought a dozen aluminum ones from a maker in the North West.... If you are interested in collectables .Here is an article about The most collectable Airguns of the 20th Century... http://www.beemans.net/airguncollecting.htm

Crossman Trapmaster 1100
March 20 2005, 8:43 PM
Dave, Great job; thank you for all of that detail and pictures; a big help. It is really out of the world of Daisy plinkers. The guys are really enthusiastic about the 1100. I'd like to find someone nearby that has one and try it out. ---Walter---

When doing the changes I had opportunity to weigh the valve, the original made of brass was a heavy hitter of 32 grams, and the baby plastic only 6 grams. All the difference in speed is the delicate tuning between the power of the hammer, stronger/weaker spring in the body valve, weight of the valve etc. More testing will be undertaken, but the figures that is written in numerous airgun books, magazines, saying that the Trapmaster can produce around 600-650, ( with a heavy load of around 80 grains) is far from what I have achieved so far.
