I strongly suggest OP get a friend who has an 1100 that works correctly so he can compare.
Seriously, learn how your gun works before you ask about troubleshooting a problem that is possibly operator error.
Waste of thread space here.

My bet is on the the carrier. O-ring won't cause this, bent or broke feed latch likely will drop two or none. Sounds like a gummed up mag tube or mag spring binding, but you've stated they are good to go.

It's releasing a shell from the mag tube onto carrier. The carrier is not moving the shell up and the bolt is not releasing.

I've had mine gummed up to the point of not firing it out of there hard enough to trip it.

He said he cleaned it but mag springs are cheap.

I fixed mine having this same problem and it was the plastic magazine spring follower with an aluminum one and the problem was solved. I noticed that the plastic was worn on a slight angle and that was causing it to bind when the spring was extended to the last shell.

This person told me that my Remington 1100 will NOT feed a round directly from the magazine into the chamber when I pull the bolt handle back and release it. He said pulling the bolt back drops a round onto the carrier and that I must then push the carrier release button to chamber the first round. Subsequent rounds should feed automatically when the gun is firing live rounds. Does this sound correct? Thank you



This is correct. I have 2 1970's model 1100's and both work this way. Bolt locks back and it releases the round onto the carrier. Then you have to press bolt release for the round to chamber. However I always drop a shell into the ejection port to load the first round. I thought all 1100's operated this way. My 11-87s will load a round from the mag though. They are different designs.

That was poor design I think. Should have used at least a stamped sheet metal follower, if not aluminum. That plastic follower gets powder residue on it, which grinds away at the plastic making contact with the sides of the tube, sometimes binding. I am more particular with cleaning it than I am the gas ports.

I agree, it's a bad design. Even though you clean it there still isn't a lot you can do to stop it from wearing funny and jamming your gun.
