Remington 11-87 Shell Ejection

Postby TCOMass » Thu Mar 29, 2012 2:03 pm

I have an 11-87 I would like to use on the Trap field. However I heard that one can do something so that the Action doe not Cycle so that my spent hulls are not hitting the person next to me. Has anyone heard of, or has done something to keep the action from cycling so that it has to be manually opened to retrieve each hull after each shot,when shooting one shell at a time. Thanks Tom O

Yep, it's called a shell catcher. Google "shell catcher" and select the price and type you would like to install on your 1187. There are several different types.

Cheapest way is to put a strong rubber band over the ejection port.

I think it is more fun having your buddy get hit between the eyes with a 3 1/2" shell while he is lining up on a duck! :beer:

If your only gonna use it for trap, plug your gas ports. small lead shot will do the trick. Drive in with a small punch and when you wanna remove em, take the punch and drive em out into the barrel.

Shell catchers are great for trap with a SA, no more chasing the empties around the field. if you plug the gas ports you have to cycle the action back yourself. With the shell catcher the chamber is already open for you to just pull out the empty and drop in a live round. :thumbsup:

Shell catchers are a must if you reload- your shells never hit the ground! the problem is, you will never be able to shoot doubles with it on.

My fix is to load light 7/8 loads. My premier tosses them out, but only about a foot and they fall by my feet. Your shells must have some power if they are ejecting and hitting the guy in the next stand over. That is what- an 8' toss? Try a lighter load. :eek:

How many grains and what powder are you using etc.. BBK? When I shoot my 1187 with 7/8oz reloads they still go prettty far, mine are probably hot though, I'd have to look a data when I get home.
