1187 super mag problems again

Postby muskymagoo51 » Fri Oct 04, 2013 11:58 pm

my super mag down again has been a theme since I bought it. gas piston sheered, 4 links, action bar bolt sets on.all hardware in magazine shell carrier latch all broke remington stated once again thjey did not know of any problems with super mag. I told the CS rep there was 100s if not thousands of bad reviews on line he said he would like to see em so he gave me a fax number which Im burning up with bad reviews I pulled offline. so if you have had problems please pm me or post it here. Wanted to make certain remington is aware of how big a failure the 1187 super mag was and how we all wasted our money on a defective product. and yes this was all with factory ammo

Been shooting one for two years. No problems at all, shot everything from 7/8 skeet loads up to 3.5" turkey loads. Been very reliable. I can't shoot it worth a crap (gun fit problem) but it always goes bang and puts another and the chamber.

Owned one for 4-5 years of hard use without the first issue. Recently sold it to finance the purchase a Versamax. As much as I love the VM I wish I had kept it also. But if it's that terrible just get rid of it and buy something else.

I too have had problems with my 11-87 super mag. Feed latch has broke multiple times on me and firing pin snapped as well. The guns internal parts are not made for constant 3 1/2 use. I got rid of mine quickly and got a SX3. The internal parts of the Sx3 are twice as thick as the 11-87, I would unload it while it still fires and not throw your money away.
