    1100 will not eject spent hull. Action will cycle back about 3/4 of the way then close pushing hull back into the chamber. Gun is clean new O ring, barrell ports are clean. Gun has just started doing this will not even cycle with new shells. Have never had this happen before. Anyone have help or advise.
    Thanks

    Sounds like a broken extractor.

    Just a guess.

    When is the last time you cleaned out the Action Spring Tube and replaced the spring? Check the follower and link while you are looking. Also look at the firing pin spring. A thorough cleaning would also be a good idea. Not just a quicky, a complete tear it down to the bare elements and get ALL the crap out of the nooks and crannys clean. Check the barrel lug, where the gas rings sit, for caked on residue. You'd be surprised at how much powder reesidue can get caked up in some areas.

    check the gas ring to make sure it's not on backwards.

    Several possible sources of the problem.

    1. Gun not assembled properly. Check piston and ring.

    2. Recoil spring in stock is dirty/rusty.

    3. Broken link (connecting rod) between bolt and recoil spring.

    4. Improper (too weak) ammo.

    5. Gas ports clogged.

    There are several other possible reasons, but these are the most likely, IMO.

    Here's another place to look. A friend bought a used .410 1100 Sporting that wouldn't eject same as yours. We bench cleaned it completely...recoil spring tube all the nooks and crannies in the receiver and the gas ports in the barrel. I replaced the o-ring. Put it back together and it still wouldn't eject. I took the rings and hand placed them in the barrel lug...it was a very tight fit. I had to force the rings in. I replaced the rings with new rings from Brownell’s and the problem went away. It's been several years without any problems. Seems much of the gas pressure was used up un-sticking the rings in the barrel lug and causing a delay in the cycling action. What caused the rings to expand is a mystery.

    You can also check the action bar assembly, there are 2 long metal struts on either side of the magazine tube and one might be broken. HMB

    I was using a dry snake to clean my barrels.

    I had two 1100's go down within a week of each other this past January....

    Tried heavy loads, no luck...

    Turns out I was not getting a complete barrel cleaning using a dry snake and over a period of time I got a buildup in the barrel chamber and the fired shell was hanging.

    A good wet cleaning resolved the problem.

    If you are using the snap-together rings that is the problem. The two piece rings work better. Light loads will really show this imo.
