    Bought a used (looks like new)20 ga. 1100 (G3) for my 10 yr. old last Christmas. It was a little heavy for him so we just left it in the vault and let him keep shooting a youth 870. Anyway, pulled it out today and went to shoot but when you pull trigger no click - nothing (with safety off). The interesting thing is that when you remove forearm and pull the barrel out about a half an inch or so the trigger will then engage and pressing the trigger will release firing pin like it is supposed to.

    I shoot Berettas and don't have much experience with the 1100's. Nothing against them (up until this point) but this was not was obviously not what I was expecting. Any ideas? Hopefully something simple? Thanks.

    Check your gas rings there more that likely in back wards not letting the barrel seat.

    The barrel seal and rings are installed incorrect. The flat goes down the bevel goes down then the rubber. The way they are will not let the bolt close.

    Hope this helps
