    So how do you install an Interceptor Latch Retain in an 1100 with simple handtools?

    You need a pair of snap ring plyers. I wouldn't trust any other way to do it without possibly damaging the ring or the gun.

    If your only loading one shell in the mag, just run the gun w/ out the interceptor latch, I've done that before, the only real purpose it serves it to segregate the 3rd and subsequent shells from feeding into the mag when the 2nd shell is fed, and if you leave it off, one less thing to break when you need to count on the gun the most.

    Ouch, snap ring pliers are not cheap and I need the gun this weekend.

    I've run them without the interceptor latch before, but this particular 1100 I occasionally use in the field and would like the extra shot in the magazine. And when I ran them without the latch I knew that I would get to a shoot where the Remington folks would repair it. None of those Remington good guys around anymore.

    If we are talking about the same thing, the best way is to glue it in. I have an old thread on that. I'll look for the pics

    That's a shell latch, Jack, not an interceptor latch. Two different animals.

    MIA that is the feed latch you have glued in. Mrskeet410 will need the special pliers that were mentioned to fix his problem. The pliers are expensive considering he will only need them about 2 or 3 times in his life time !


    Hit 'em hard,

    Skeetman - My local car mechanic had a pair of those pliers and he fixed it in less than a minute.

    Get the snap ring pliers. Harbor freight has some cheap sets. I have about four sets of them. The most expensive being the Snap-On set I used when I turned wrenches. Several hundreds of dollars some years ago. If you get the right tips, the $10 pair will work just fine. Small right angle for "Outside" rings.

    snap ring pliers only way to go. but be careful not to open the ring too much you will stretch it out of shape, it is a tiny hard to deal with booger !!
