    Friend has a Smith and Wesson 1000 12 gauge shotgun and cannot locate a replacement for what is termed the piston shock absorber for the gun. Anyone out there have a lead for the part or know what material it is made from? He said it was hard plastic (UHMW HDPE ultra high molecular weight high density polyethylene) but I think this would offer no shock relief for the slide what so ever.

    I have capability to make the part but need to have something to work from. Anyone out there have a S&W 1000 that could take a picture of or measure the part for me?

    I appreciate your reading this and look forward to the responses.

    It's 9-11, reflect on what we have and never forget what was done.

    You can cut a piece of thick leather and oil it. The part looks like the washer from a water hose.

    TD1958 Looks like you win the Scooby Snack. Went to Numrich and saw the part and that it is in stock. Forwarded info to the S&W 1000 owner. I am sure he'll be a happy camper! I appreciate the lead and also thanks to riflegunbuilder for the hint. I will make one if the Numrich source goes sour!

    This shotgun became the Mossberg autoloader. I would definitely investigate that possibility if I had one.

    I love the Super Skeet, Hellofa shooter.

    I did look at the schematic on Numrich for the Mossberg 1000, and it looks exactly like the Howa/Smith. The link here is an interesting read with good tips.

    The piston shock absorber is $4.30, so worth a try if nothing else is aailable.

    Smith & Wesson 1000 was my favorite gun for many many years.
    I used to work the midnight shift. Got out of work in the morning and went pheasant hunting about 5 days a week with the S&W 1000. It never failed me for over a decade. Including as a deer slug gun.
    Fix that gun and shoot the heck out of it.
