    Have an older 1100 trap and the stud is missing for the interceptor latch.I think I can still shoot singles & handicap with it like this, but no doubles. Am I right on this or is it out of commission until I get a stud and latch put in??? Thanks

    Yes it will work, only as a single shot.

    Yes it will still work. You can even shoot double's. The interceptor latch is the 3rd. shell cutoff.(2nd. shell in mag tube.) Your gun will jam if you put two in the tube.
    Hope this helps

    Put one in the chamber and one in the tube and try it. That is the way to answer which one of the above is right.

    The interceptor latch is not needed with one shell in the magazine. As long as you put one in the pipe, and one in the mag, you will be fine. Putting two in the mag will give you a double feed. You will only do this once.

    To help with the learning curve, get a universal magazine plug from Brownell's, and trim it so your magazine will hold one round. PROBLEM SOLVED!

    When I hunt with an auto shotgun, this is what I do, I have shot O/U's since Moses was a pup.
