1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Sounds rare enough that I can't remember seeing one.
    I shoot an 1100 - would like to see a picture if you have one.

    A wide rubber band works well also.

    I believe it replaces the bolt handle. I been told it works really well.

    I have never seen it used on the Rem. 1100 but have seen it used on Winchester Super X , that was many years ago, in the 70's.

    I have 2...one in original package, unused...may sell someday (not now). They are inserted in place of the bolt handle and work fine, but be careful closing the action with your fingers too close to the receiver on the forearm...sometimes you can be pinched as the action closes. Regards, Ed

    These shell catchers, affectionately known as "Pitch Forks" were all the rage back then. Yes, they replace the bolt handle and work great. They have been out of production for quite a few years, probably because of cost. One real advantage is that they can be installed and removed instantly with no damage to the receiver blueing as is typical with the snap on style. There are no adhesives. The pitch fork can be removed and the bolt handle snapped back in seconds.

    Kind of neat...

    Will they work for doubles??? I would imagine, the second shell could get chambered, but would get caught on extraction if the first shell is in the "pitchfork".

    I like the design.

    Never tried it, but do not think that these would work for doubles. Regards, Ed

    if memory is correct, this was invented by Ralph Semour and i did have one of the origional ones he had made. they worked well but you had to watch you didn't fork your finger on closing!

    Note: The one pictured will only work with a gun that has the detent ball on the bottom. Some 1100 have a bottom detent ball the others have it on the "north" side. Make sure which 1100 you have.

    These PITCH FORK shell catchers are for RIGHT HAND Remington 1100 models. I've used them without on several 1100s produced for 1965 through 1996 without a problem. Never encountered a problem with a receiver cracking on an 1100.

    Never tried shooting doubles with one, but I doubt that would work.
