    They are Viton #2-021 0-rings, size 21 is 15/16" I.D. X 1 1/16" O.D. X 1/16" thick.

    The gas system (outside of mag tube from the "barrel hanger" to the end of the retracted action sleeve) should have a thin coating of Break Free on it, as well as the inside of the "barrel hanger" (properly called the gas chamber), the inside of the action sleeve, and the gas rings. If the gas rings have gaps, make sure they are 180 degrees opposite from each other.

    The action needs no lubrication to function other than a tiny amount of oil on the trigger assembly pivot points. However, a very thin coating of oil should be used internally to prevent rust. The 1100 action is designed "loose" so it needs no lube to function. Lubing it up can result in it getting gummy with dust, powder byproducts, etc.

    You can get o rings at your local hardware store, 3 for a dollar. Spray the magazine tube with Break Free if you want it to function properly. HMB
