Remington 1100 maintenance Login/Join

Hey all-

I just received a gift from my father: the Remington 1100 12g that he taught me to shoot trap on, around 1983.

I'd like to detail strip it and tune it up, a bit. Any suggestions on parts to replace or look closely at while it's apart?
How about suggestions for a good armorer's manual?

The gun is an early 80's example, at the latest. Possibly slightly older.

Thanks,

Bruce

Definitely replace the action spring. ($8 at Brownells) Keeps the frame from getting hammered.
Anything else depends on how it functions.
I used to have a pdf of Rem auto 'things to look for' (cracks, etc.) but it must be on one of my dead hard drives.

I shoot my Rem auto with the mag tube and piston/piston seal wet with Breakfree CLP...cleans up with a paper towel. Shooting them dry like the factory recommends means you are going to chisel carbon or soak & then scrub it with something that might be abrasive. CLP is easier and doesn't wear on the mag tube.

Go to shotgunworld.com and check out their " I love my" section and go to the Remington threads. They have a great thread on the 1100's. Should give you all the info you are looking for. Great site!

An excellent manual for the Remington 870/1100/11-87:

Thanks for the book reference. Just traded for a Remington 1100 Tac 2. NIB not fired yet, will also use CLP as noted above. Hopefully fire it next week.
