    I can't seem to find the thread that had the screw on bolt closer for a 1100. The thread also had pics of it. Thanks, don q

    Don, search for the Subject: remington 1100 release button extensions. There is a post by "LukeG" that has pics of one installed. I bought 3 but have not installed them yet.

    Any bolt release that hangs below the receiver is a hazard. Ask anyone who "had" one. Not many people keep them, since perforated fingers are usually painful. There is a carrier from Remington that they call a "competition" carrier. The release is about 1/4" longer and does not interfere with loading the magazine either. It actually makes it easier. It also does not hang down and close the action on your fingers when something accidentally trips it.

    Here's a thread to look through:

    Mash the link at the top to see what I'm talking about. I've used these with little trouble, and would recommend them over the "button" type.

    Here is a standard assembly, you can see the difference.
    The ones that hang down considerably can be a hasard. The only guy I know with the exstended button type is always bumping it. Closeing the action with out notice. Also with the open and empty rule it can be a bit nerveing when this thing slams shut. I for one with a few bad exsperiences with auto loaders think they should have a empty chamber flag

    Quack Shot, Why didn't you tell me this,before several of my friends (and your friends)and yours truly smashed their fingers.To think you actually saw my smash the fingers in action, & kept this little secret.

    Hi Joe,

    You had it installed before you told me and I did tell you I didn't like that style. :) Now you know why I carry a stack of band-aids in my pocket when I see someone with one of those. :)

    Carl,
    Now I know why you kept following me around,with bandages sticking out of all of your pockets.
    Thanks,

    Joe,

    I had a premonition when I saw that thing hanging down under your receiver. The first time I heard the bolt slam home and the resulting "expletive deleted", I knew the bandaids would come in handy. :) If you get one of the Remington carriers, I can put it on your trigger assy, or that local gunsmith could do it in a few minutes.
