    I have an older Remington 1100 and I want it completely rebuilt.
    The action is not snappy anymore. Does anyone know of anyone
    who specializes in rebuilding Remington 1100's?
    Thank you

    "The action is not snappy anymore." What do you mean by this?

    Just about everything on an 1100 is user replaceable. If it needs more work than that, its probably going to be cheaper and easier to buy a new action if the action is worn out, or a new gun if its something more major.

    If the action is not "snappy" it probably needs a new main spring. You should be able to order one from Remington or Brownells and install it yourself. Other than that a good cleaning is all that's needed.

    other than cleaning the inside of the action bar and outside of mag. tube you might either replace the long spring in the but stock with a new stronger one or stretch the one in it. howard

    Almost anyone can rebuild an 1100, including you. Learn how to take it completely apart. Check out some Youtube videos. Clean and lube everything. Replace the main recoil spring, if needed, and any other parts that are broken. 1100s work for years with a little TLC. Mark

    Any good gunsmith should find it child's play to rebuild an 1100. That being said, like others on here have said, you can do it your self. Nothing to it.

    Wolff gunsprings has a set of springs for the 1100. Silicone steel vs. music wire.

    RE: stretch

    Springs are cheap. If you take the stock off replace it with a new one. And, if ordering springs also replace the one in the tube.

    The receiver can wear out......but again, it's just another inexpensive part that can be replaced.

    The receiver can wear out but it will not be cheap to replace. This is the main part of the shotgun and this is the part that has the serial number of the gun on it. You may have to buy a receiver from for an FFL holder, so maybe a new gun would be just as cheap in the long run
