    Use a single end automotive jack handle. The screwdriver end used to remove the hubcap works great and the L shaped end with the socket on it gives you good leverage. Works every time.

    yup.

    The Rem tool is a pipe with a pin through the end, fits over the screw antd the pin goes in the screw slot.

    I use the jack handle and also a huge screwdriver, has a square shank & I put on a crescent wrench.

    Hi Traphead, It's simple and easy when you know how. ( The barrel and forend must be off the gun ). Just push in the carrier as if you were loading a shell. On the right side of the reciever is the feed latch. Press the feed latch in (toward the right side of the reciever) then pull the action bar out. The bolt rides on the action bar. No force is necessary. If you have to force any thing on a gun something is not correct. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions on Remington 1100s email me at Trapmanjohn@aol.com and I will give you my phone number so I can help you fix your gun.

    Hit 'em hard,

    I see it now. Sorry I just read the head line post, then re - read the thread after I sent it. It is usually the bolt most new 1100 shooters don't know how to remove. Long live 1100s.

    A 1/2" drive drag link driver from Sears works perfect. As I remember I ground it a bit to fit the slot correctly. I think they install it with the finish tacky in the draw bolt hole. They are heck to get out the first time.

    Damn Sears don't have them any more. My friend has one in 3/8 drive, fits the hole perfectly. Of course I went to get one, and not ins stock any more.

    Handsaw to cut the stock off and expose the stock bolt and then a strong vise grip to twist it out. Yep now that the stock is ruint it is a perfect time/excuse to call Gordy and get yourself a great looking chunk of wood and then get a custom stock made for the gun.

    OOPS, Sorry if I misled you a bit..found the driver..It's labeled "Williams, 15/16...SB-30" Just fits in the bolt hole, I did grind the blade to give it flat sides to correctly fit the slot & it works every time!

    Just be careful not to slip with one of those big screwdivers and crack the stock. I saw the results of that some years ago. I like the new 11/16" nut they use on the newer models. Brownell's sells a tool for the slotted stock bolts. It might be worth the money to buy one, if you have intentions of keeping the 1100 for awhile. I made a special socket a few years ago from a drag link tool and steel tube. If I was unable to cobb one up, I would have spent the money at Brownell's.
