Re: Model 1100 - 1187 - 870 sear springs

I had the same exact feeling... no real improvement with the competition trap spring. However the two lighter springs that come with the Timney sear kit work nicely... The dimensions I put up are the light spring. I have a "Fleet" of 1100 series guns and want to put light springs in all of the skeet...

Model 1100 - 1187 - 870 sear springs

Timney sells an adjustable sear that comes with 3 springs. One of which is like a factory replacement. The other two are useful for reducing trigger pull, while not causing any problems cycling. The dimensions of the spring I used is: wire diameter .023" spring O.D. .205" length .605" If any of you ...

Model 11

To improve my collection I continue to shop... found a nice one this week, and bought it. Seems in great condition for an one that has been used.

No Ugly Polywog on the barrel either.

Re: Model 11- post cleaning ?

The following post says what I needed to hear.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAXUNqNJdxg Apparently the shotgun is performing normally... when shells are loaded into the magazine the latch holds them at the end of the magazine tube. If cycling begins... shells are held out further... as a normal ...

Model 11- post cleaning ?

My recently acquired model 11 had not been cleaned for some time. After a cleanup of the magazine tube, and lube of the spring & friction pieces I shot it... shot nicely. So I took it apart (mostly) and scrubbed it with a tooth brush and "Powder Blast" & WD-40 to get down to bare metal. The only par...

Re: model 11 20ga mfg date & choke

I've looked for a better description of that choke... you found it! Outstanding. Well I couldn't stand the dirt and muck in the action... finally decided to spend the time and solvent and get it cleaned up. So disassembly was yesterday... reassembled today... just in time to shoot a round of skeet w...

Re: An 1100 that looks like this

The Remington 1187 Premier models (early) came with the embellished receiver. I had one, but gave it to my daughter to sell in her Pawn Shop. I picked it up because it was really dirty and had some pre-rust starting. I was able to restore most of it's looks, and after a thorough cleaning using a too...

Strange Forend Crack in 1100G3

Recently purchased an 1100G3 which came to me with a badly cracked forend. I notified the sending party, and they adjusted the price. However the mystery of how such a crack could occur in a shotgun that showed very little use was intriguing. Upon inspection the gas system showed near new parts with...

Re: 1100 G3 with wrong barrel.

Found another gun to take parts from. This one needs a new forend. Must be the G3 forend due to matching checkering and looks. In the meantime I'll fix the crack. What is a good price for a G3 12ga with a 28" Rem Choke Barrel that has had the forcing cone reamed and polished. Comes with a Skeet chok...
