    What does the interceptor latch do on an 1100. I broke the back tip off on my trap 1100 and now have ordered a replacement. If it is not needed for single shot shooting I will leave it off a while. Any special tricks to replacing it, the spring and the clip?
    Thanks for any advice. randy

    I aint sure exactly what it does but it must intercept something and by where it is in the parts diagram/picture its down in the area that if it were me I would replace it as soon as you get the new part in your hands.

    The interceptor latch on the 1100/'87 only captures the second shell in the magazine. If you load one in the chamber and one in the magazine, the interceptor latch does not come into play.

    Bottom line. If you do not put more than one shell in the mag, don't worry about the interceptor latch. BTW, the interceptor latch retaining clip is generally damaged when removed. Make sure you get a new interceptor latch rataining clip when you do decide to replace it. One needs the correct tool to properly install it. I have not been able to install one without damaging it unles I used the correct "C" clip installation tool.
