    I saw this mentioned somewhere a while back and finally decided to try it.

    An 11/16" Woodboring Bit that you can buy from nearly any home improvement or tool store for about $4 is a perfect fit for the stock retainer nut on the Remington 1100 and 870. They even come with their own anti-slip center piece so no more worries about the screwdriver slipping off and splitting the stock.

    If the sides of the bit have little flanges for extra cutting power you will need to grind them down, but they are so small it should only take a couple seconds with a dremel.

    Nice!

    Is it just a threaded nut that attaches to the stock bolt or is there something else in the middle? I had a large screwdriver on one and didn't break it loose so left it alone

    regards

    There is a retainer for the action spring, but the tip won't even come close to hitting it since it is further down the action spring tube. The nut itself is just a large threaded nut.

    a regular screwdriver works BUT sometimes they slip off and break the stock.
