I have a remington 11-87 and after I take a shot the round will not eject. It will eject manually. I have probably put 500 rounds thru this shotgun and have never had a problem. Anybody have any Idea why this might be? I have looked it over and and dont see anything obvious. :sniper:

I got this from Remington


Question
My Model 1100 or Model 11-87 Premier is not cycling properly, what can be the problem?

Answer
There are many items that can affect the cycling of an autoloading shotgun. The Model 11-87 12 gauge shotguns with field barrels installed need a minimum of 3 ¼ dram and 1 1/8 oz shot to properly cycle.

The Model 1100 barrels are normally chambered for either 2 3/4" or 3", not both, and will only cycle that one length shell.

Some components that you can check are:

Barrel seal-make sure that it is in good condition and properly installed on the detent as shown in your owner’s manual
Piston/piston seal assembly-make sure that these are also in good condition and that they are in the correct position as shown in your owner’s manual.
Action Spring- this is the spring that is located in the action spring tube that runs from the back of the receiver through the rear stock. This can become corroded or gummed up with oil and debris over time. Waterfowl hunters especially should check this part of the firearm regularly. You will need to remove the stock to access the action tube.
Gas Orifice Hole – Ensure that it is clear of any debris by cleaning with a small pipe cleaner.

After confering with the (MWTCSC) MO Whitetails Code of Shamless Conduct the problem could be erectified by just buying a PUMP... :eek: Sorry...

Well, I load 3 shell's, 1 in the chamber, 2 in the magazine tube. I will fire a round and it will not eject at all. Ill pull back on the slide and it ejects the shell with no problem. It's clean with no build up or anything. I did clean it a few weeks ago, but did shoot about a box of shells before this started happening. Maybe Ill break it down and use the owners manual putting it back together. Maybe I did something when I cleaned it??????????????????????????

Good idea. Strip er down and make sure everything is clean and aligned properly. Check the little cas ports to make sure they are open. Don't over oil. Some autos don't like that at all. Best place to start lookin is the last place things ya did to a firearm when it starts causin trouble. Good luck.

i would guess it is the gas ring, the 11-87 are known for going through those awful fast. they are cheap and easy to replace though.

#1.....gas ports are clogged. Clean them out with pipe cleaners. #2.....O-Ring is broken and needs replaced. #3.....The metal rings that control the gas expulsion were put back in backwards when you cleaned it last. I have done all three things with my Model 1100. Good luck!

I knew the problem cause I put mine in backwards a couple of times in the past. The newer ones have a small sticker inside showing the sequence and correct position. Age does have its advantage sometimes. As the saying goes....."Been There...Done That".

Good job Mailman! I agree with rat! This site is a heck of a place to save money on things that seem like an easy fix to those that have 'been there, done that, got the t-shirt'.
