    How long should the spring be before its should be replaced? I am cleaning my friends 1100 and his gun is kind of sluggish with light loads. Its pretty dirty so that should help, but I seem to recall that there is a standard for length. Thanks.

    If he can not remember changeing it or is old, rusty ect ect. just go ahead and change it. I replaced the action spring,follower from surecycle, they provided 2 springs one for heavy loads and one for target loads. I installed the heavy spring(field gun)works great. I have yet to try the light spring for target loads. not my best gun for trap or skeet. scroll down to bottom of screen and click on directions

    Tripod; a new spring is 15", I think. Springs are cheap and easy to change. I change the one in my wife's 1100 once a year. Overkill maybe, but her gun seems pretty reliable.

    22hornet is correct ,a new action spring is 15" long.I just ordered a
    few parts from Remington last week and the price for a new action spring
    is $3.60.Turnaround time from Remington was less than 5 days.

    If interested the part# is 15252. Parts phone# 1 800 243-9700 (M-F).
    Action spring in 1100/11-87 are interchangeable(same).

    Happy Easter.
