    Left hand Remington 1100. I saw this on Auction Arms. What is the piece of metal hanging down in front of the trigger guard. Is it a shell extractor, part of a deflector?

    Call the doctor. Looks like innards hanging out.

    Yikes. Judging by the trigger guard, that doesn't look at all like a factory trigger group.

    I agree. I'd guess a closer. But who knows?

    Send the seller an e-mail and ask!

    It's part of a Miller trigger from the 70's. The Miller trigger was a single shot all steel trigger that was supposed to have a very fast lock time. I had one, but I can't quite remember for sure if that metal part was used to cock the hammer. I think it was. Maybe someone remembers for sure.

    Cl3, I bought one of Carl Smiths triggers at the old Mint Gun club in Las Vegas in very early 70s for my model 12. Paid for itself many times over the years!! It's still in my plain barreled squirrel gun I shot my way to 27 yards with. Great trigger! Hap
