    I own a Remington 1100 Clasic Trap. I currently try to clean the gas ports by applying a patch with Hoppes and wiping the residue away. Is there a better way of doing this? Does someone make a brush that fits inside these ports? If so, where can I get one? Your thoughts.
    Thanks
    Dave

    A pipe cleaner soaked in Hoppe's #9 works like a charm. Run the soaked cleaner through first, let it sit a few minutes, then run a dry cleaner through a couple of times to remove the loosened residue. I have done it this way for over 20 yrs. and it works very well.

    I use a drill bit that is just a little bit smaller than the ports. Sorry I don't know the size.

    The size will vary with the gun. Number drill sizes will range from 47/48 or larger.

    I opened my skeet barrel so 7/8 oz loads will cycle, I think it's at 41.

    You haven't lived until you have broken a drill bit off in an 1100 port.

    Hoppe soaked pipecleaner works best for me. Cleans the ports to a mirror finish...

    A simple pipecleaner soaked in gun solvent has always worked well for me. No need to make it complicated.

    +3 or 4 for the pipe cleaner. Ed's Red works even better than Hoppes #9. No need to go to the cutting action of a drill bit.

    Use a large paperclip; just partially unfold it and pass the straight leg through the holes. Works great and you can keep one in your gun case...
