    I have a standard 1100 receiver and just got a Jack West stock.

    Tonight I tried putting the receiver and stock together. Very tight fit for the tube that goes into the stock. The "stop" area for the stock bolt is several inches inside the stock so the standard stock bolt and washer don't work. Is this common with Jack West stocks?

    I'm thinking there must be a spacer or something that I am missing.

    Maybe I could use a piece of PVC that would slide over the receiver tube? Would it hold up?

    Solutions?

    I'm assuming you have an original style. You do need a bushing/spacer, as these were made to fit the older 870 w/ the short stock bolt. I've used PVC and copper pipe, both held up just fine.

    When I bought it, I didn't know it was the 'original' style. Did they come with a spacer? How long should it be?
    I can try PVC or copper - which holds up longer? This gun is going to be used by AIM shooters.

    If its an original one, it should have come with a PVC spacer. No clue on the length, you'll just have to trial and error it, its been years since I had one. The original ones were PVC, I think that'd work as well as anything else, so it depends on what you have on hand, or what you can get easier or cheaper.

    Gene,

    PVC works fine.

    I used a piece of steel pipe to add just a tad of weight. Wish I could remember what size and how long, but alas, memory fails and the gun is in a storage cabinet 9,000 miles away.

    I think it might have been standard 1/2" steel (or PVC) pipe, and it was 2 to 3 inches long, if I recall.

    Measure the outside diameter of the recoil tube (at the threads) on the 1100 with a micrometer or a vernier caliper, and then check this with your hardware store to see what the inside diameter is for standard pipe sizes.

    Get a piece that has the right inside diameter, and get a short length.

    Like Ian said, you'll just have to do trial & error for the length.

    The other option is to just give Jack West a call and ask.

    Good luck.

    I put an 870 stock on an 1100, and just found a piece of broom handle to make up the difference. Nice and hard, easy to trim and drill. Perfect fit.

    And I didn't have to leave the house.

    OK guys, thanks. I'll probably go with some PVC, because I have some already. May need to get a new lock washer - the one I have is so tight I can't get it into the bolt hole.

    Gene, You might contact Jack if you are not in a huge hurry. He may have some left over from the old style stocks. Jeff

    Used a piece of pvc and it snugged up. Wonder if I need a lock nut in there?

    Gene,

    Yes, I would recommend a lock nut.
