    I'm sorry for asking this question when there was a thread on the subject recently. ( I'll type slow because I'm a slow learner) however what is the appropriate size "O" ring for 12 Ga. 1100 and best place to get them. Someone mentioned an auto parts place and the size. It would be much appreciated. Jim W

    At my local hardware store they are 3 for a dollar. Bring your old one to the store and match it up for size with the new ones. HMB

    I believe they are #21 viton "O" rings. They should be available at your local NAPA auto store. I think the dimensions are: 15/16" ID, 1 1/16" OD and the ring itself is 1/16" thick.

    Why in the world would someone spend $1200 on a shotgun and then try to low ball a gas ring? Go to your local gunsmith and pay him/her, you may make a friend, and learn more about your gun.

    I think Remington now charges about $4 to $5 for each O-ring. The ones from the Auto parts store are about 25 cents each and work just as well. I've been using both for more than 20 years and my 1100s function the same regardless of the O-ring I use. I hope this helps.

    Hit 'em hard,

    John

    I tried every hardware store, auto parts store (including NAPA) in this town and NO ONE carried an "O" ring the size mentioned above. The standard size "O" ring with a 15/16" ID is 1/8", not 1/16".
    I plan on trying some specialty stores in town that might carry them but they are not open on the weekend. If I find any, I will let you know where and the price.
    Respects, Bob

    Smitty, if you need help I'll help ya. No big deal to drop ya a few to hold you over for a long time (years). I'm in hydraulic oil and muck and myer every day. I have a bag of #021 vitons. If you have a sub gauge 1100 let me know. This O-ring stuff is no big deal, no rocket science behind it. You got to be crazy to buy them from Remington and it takes alot of shooting to tear one up. I've shot 1100's for many years and still do, they will cycle with them cracked, split, missing, charred and petrofied. Let me know.

    Go to your local plumbers shop. They usually carry Vitons in lots of sizes. Wayne

    If the O-ring is not made of VitonĀ® Fluoroelastomer, it will not last very long, but it will work for a while.

    VitonĀ® rings in the right size for a Remington 1100 can be purchased from McMaster-Carr (http://www.mcmaster.com) very cheaply - $7.20 (plus shipping) for 50 of them (part no. 9464k75). That price works out to less than 15 cents a ring, which is somewhat cheaper than the $6 I had to pay for a single ring at a local gun shop.

    BTW, I'm told (but I have not confirmed) that the same ring will fit a Winchester Super-X.

    Spanky, thanks for the offer. I have two places in town that might have a better selection of o rings than the ones I tried today. If I still do not have any luck, I will let you know and we can work something out. Thanks in advance.

    SirMissalott:

    The Grainger store 2009-2010 catalog(page 2741)has a listing for O-Rings,
    including the Viton brand. The 021 size measures 15/16 id X11/16 od X 1/16 w.

    The cost for a pkg of 50 is $8.54/75 durometer and $8.81/90 durometer.

    Regarding the Viton rings,the catalog states "Well suited to applications
    with high tempature petroleum oil exposure.Excellent flame resistant,com-
    pression set,and gas permeability. Also outstanding chemical resistance to
    ozone,weather,dilute acids,dilute akalis,petroleum oils,and solvent

    The 75 and 90 durometer rings are black in color and have a operating temp.
    of -15 degrees to 4oo degrees Fahrenheit.

    I use the 021 size in my Remingtion 11-87 12gauge without any problems.

    Would a 1187 in a 20ga. be a different size? I assume it would, would anyone know what that size would be. Thanks Dave

    I found some o-rings at Ace Hardware. They are for plumbing and the store did not have a clue what they were made of. They are marked #33 and are 1-1/16 x 15/16 x 1/16. They are priced at $.59ea plus tax. I will see how they work. If they do, it is a lot less expensive than the Remington 0-rings.

    Ted K,
    I went to McMaster Carr on line and ordered some using the part number you gave in your post. You were right on target! It was real easy to do it this way. Thanks for the info!!!

    The hardware store o-rings are neoprene.

    Change them twice a year and you'll be fine.

    timb99, Thanks for the info!

    I thought I would soak one in G-96 oil (what I clean my guns with) and see if it swells up. If so, I won't use them. If it does not swell, I will try them out.
    I worked on an 1100 last year that the o-ring swelled up and I almost could not get the barrel off the gun. The owner put one on it he had got from a friend his work, hard to say what it was made of.

    Thanks again!

    Bob
