Rem 1100 feeding problem

Postby Twisp » Thu Nov 29, 2012 8:52 pm

The magazine tube is clean and spotless. Replaced the old mag spring and recoil springs with new Wolff springs. The problem appears to be the feeding latch does not get depressed sufficiently when the action cycles, manifest by the rounds hanging up (on the very edge) on the feeding latch when I cycle the action by hand. If I violently cycle the action by hand often but not always the round flies out of the magazine and chambers normally. My other M1100 does not require such violence and feeds/cycles smoothly. Anybody ever have this problem? Do I need a new latch or does the action part that depresses the latch needs fixing/replacement. Any help appreciated.

Sounds like a bent shell catch, might need to massage it a bit, so it lays in its slot a little better.

Thanks, gentlemen. I think you are right. Not sure how to pop it out of its slot and re-set (stake) it. Any advice?

Some times the trigger assembly is not put in place right. I think you have to put the forward latch in and the trigger piece wilol line up smoothly on the other hand if you have it go in and the pins don't line up smoothly and the latch lip doesn't connect right you could have a problem.

Hey Rem1100, love your screen name. They're great guns and my two fit me perfectly, but they can be as difficult as a truculent and capricious step daughter. I bought them both expensive Hasting wadlock barrels to get multiple chokes and superior patterns, so I'm really incentivized to get them purring. I hear you about getting the pins lined up for the trigger group, and unless the pins go in like a sharp knife in warm butter I realign until they go in with light taps. Anyway, I'm back to the latch. I attempted to straighten it out in place with a screw down clamp. At first it cycles like new, but in short order it's back to hanging on the very edge of the rim. I'm going to try to order a new latch today. Any options beyond Midway, whose latches are on backorder?

you can buy them from Remington I had to replace mine last year. I got the staking tool and it works fine now.

Thanks, kindervb, just ordered it direct from Remington, and cheaper than Midway, too.

Staking the latch might be nice, But mine has been floating free for the 22+ years I have owned it.

mine has been free floating as well. you can use a dab of epoxy to hold it in. j b weld is good not worth buying a staking tool
