    Need some advice from the more mechanically inclined folks here.

    I bought a used Jack West stock a few months ago and am building an 1100 for our youth team. I am almost done BUT, the lock washer that came with the receiver (Black one in the photo below) is about 1/32"-1/16" too large on the outside diameter. I bought a slightly smaller (OD) washer and it fits BUT the inside diameter of the new washer (gold one in the photo below) is smaller than I need by 1/32-1/16". I don't have any heavy duty tools like a grinder, just hand tools. I called Jack West and he said he thought Remington made 2 sizes of lock nut. I have yet to call Remington.

    So, my dilemma is how to easily resize the newer lock washer? I tried filing it, but that seems like it'll take forever. I don't want to give the youth team a gun without a lock washer.

    Any and all suggestions appreciated.

    HELP - 1100 Stock LockNut

    how about a bench grinder? Hold the washer in a set of locking pliers and work your way around. Take your time..Just an idea..Ray

    In another age you would take the gun to your local hardware store and go through the bins of various lock washers until you found what you needed.

    That probably wouldn't work at a suburban Lowes. But if you have a local hardware store, especially one that stills sells guns and ammo you may be in luck. But you may want to talk to a clerk before you carry your 1100 into the store.

    Try a metric lock washer or see if you can find a nylon tipped lock nut and do away with the lock washer altogether. Ace hardware in your area?

    Get you a dowel rod very close to the diameter of the opening in the rear of the stock. Wrap the dowel rod with fine sand paper and enlarge the hole a small amount. The larger washer should work fine.

    Take the washer that is too big on the OD and put it on a bolt the size of the ID. Now put a nut on the bolt with the washer and tighten it. Now chuck the bolt in a drill and use a file or stone to work down to size. Or take it outside where you have some concrete to use as the abrasive. I even to this to faucet washers about 5 at a time.

    Those lock washers are very hard you will probably need a grinder of some sort, another possibility if you can;t locate the proper size might be to enlarge the hole in the stock SLIGHTLY if there is enough material to allow this SAFELY. Ross Puls

    Order a new one from Remington? If it doesn't fit it would seem you have a Jack West stock out of spec.

    You might try a local garage, most auto mechanics have tons of 'odds & ends' including nuts. If you are using a nyloc nut (nylon lock nut)then you do not use a lock washer with it - just the nut and maybe a flat washer. IMHO.
