    I have a Remington 1100 classic trap that won't fire. Change out the bolt, and it fires. I have changed the firing pin and spring. De-burred thelocking block. The trigger releases the hammer, nothing. Put an older bolt in it, fires. Help!

    Check the plastic buffer at the rear of the bolt. Check to see if the operating handle moves freely. HMB

    bring it with you on Sat. There are several guys that are wizzes at 1100s that will be at the mid winter shoot. Stuart or Bruce would be my first thoughts and I bet you they will identify your problem right away.

    Is the bolt locking up? It will not fire if the bolt has not locked into the barrel extension.

    Short firing pin? When you push the pin does it protrude out the front?

    Thank everyone. Found out the problem. The action fork had come out on 1 side. Also the trigger group was inside the fork. Not just the hammer. Am going to check the length of the stock spring also. Travis I will see u in the morning. Just bought a Diamond 1100. Dont have it yet.

    Action fork.. odd how it worked with one bolt but not the other. Shouldn't have worked with either bolt.
