    I want to install a wire catcher on my new 1100 Comp. Does anyone have specs. on drilling the holes? How far apart, how deep and what angle. I promise I'm not trying to put any gunsmiths out of bussiness, I just like doing my own work when I can.

    Why don't you just buy a T&S shell catcher? Around $10 and it works.

    I don't want to scratch my receiver up with the T&S. I called T&S to see which model would work with the comp and he wasn't sure that any of them would work reliably.

    Thanks JBBOR for pics. Measurements?

    I use a birchwood casey shell catcher on my 1100 Comp with the double sided tape you do not get any scratches

    I am using the Birchwood Casey on my 1100 Competition. Works perfect and cannot mar the finish on the Gun.
    My first attempt was with the TS and while it did catch the shells the receiver seems to be a bit wider than a normal 1100 causing the shell catcher to ride just high enough to cause the bolt handle to drag and close slowly.
    And after only 6 or 7 shots it was beginning to mar the surface...... llc

    Wait till you try to drill the two holes for the "wire catcher" to ride in. Be prepared with a lot of extra drill bits. Those 1100 barrels are made of REALLY hard steel. Not worth the trouble!!

    Brian...I used a .050 bit and .040 piano wire. The catcher is 1 7/8 tip to tip after the bends. I can send you some pics Monday from work, I can't scan them here. Try a search for wire shell catcher on here and you may come up with the pics I'm talking about. I like it better than any of the shell catchers I've used before. GaryL.
