    Shot my 1100 LT-20 for the first time in a while today. Noticed that the barrel seems a little loose. On further inspection, it seems the lug on the inside of the receiver is a little flattened on the bottom.

    Can this be repaired?

    That lug is for aligning the barrel, not tightening it. It fits in a slot to prevent clockwise or counterclockwise rotation of the barrel.

    I don't see the sheetmetal barrel support on your action bars. Maybe its out of the image. Do you have one?

    Look at part number 104 in this diagram.

    Brian, I didn't think the 20 gauge 1100's had that part at all.

    BTW, that's the problem. I guess I wasn't clear. When I said "loose" I meant there is slight clockwise and counterclockwise rotation of the barrel.

    My LT20 does have the barrel support it is a 70's gun. Barrel does not move with bolt open.

    Not to hijack your thread but recently the magazine tube pulled out of my 1187. Does anyone have a recomendation on who could repair this? Not really wanting to send it to Remington.

    Remington has a list of recommended Remington repair gunsmiths on their website. See link.

    The issue may be backlog. Often the factory has a faster turnaround service.

    I called Remington today and they said the LT-20 does not have the forearm hanger. Only the 12 and 16 gauge models.

    Thanks for the link about the repair gunsmiths.
