    I have an aftermarket fore end but it didnt come with the metel insert. Does anyone know where I can buy one? I checked remingtons site but they didnt list anything.

    If there the forend wasn't designed to take the insert, it will probably be too small to accept it. If its synthetic, I can guarantee it won't fit, as they are designed to be used without the insert.

    Otherwise, there's a guy on gunbroker who sells the metal sleeve.

    The fore end is from Wenig. I'm just worried about it cracking. The factory fore end looks like it has fiberglass in the inside for strength. Do you think I should add this to mine?

    I would call wenig and ask them if they put the fiberglass mat in in their completed stocks. I can't see it as being a bad thing if you do it, but I can see it getting messy real quick trying to do it yourself.

    Remington stopped using the pin and sleeve system when they introduced the
    1187.  The 1187 magazine spring<br>
    retainer is powered by the magazine spring and the notches "click"
    into notches inside the magazine cap to lock the magazine cap. When Remington
    re-introduced the 1100 they used the 1187 style magazine cap retention<br>
    system. All current fore ends are 1187 style, you wont find an old style unless
    you find an old stock.<br>
    <br>
    There are 3 solutions:<br>
    <br>
    1) Pay a gunsmith to remove the pin&sleeve from an old fore end and fit to a
    new style fore end.<br>
    2) Brownells makes a kit to install a pin in the wood, this is the system that
    Remington now uses on the small frame 1100's. <br>
    3) Use a wave/spring washer. <br>
    <br>
    I had some wave washers custom made that are wider than than the ones available
    from Brownells.  They<br>
    fit perfectly under the old style magazine cap and work very well. <br>
    <br>
    $6 each via 1rst class mail. PM if interested.
