    I have both an 1100 and 11-87 and wanted to get a bolt link in case of breakage. I hear that's the part that breaks the most. Will the same one fit both guns or are they different parts ? Where is the best place to get one ? Thanks, Happy New Year.

    Should be the same. If not, there's a few 11-87s in trouble where I've installed the 1100 link. I buy mine directly from Remington. Midwayusa or Brownell's usually carries them also. If you are in a bind for one, try a local Gander Mountain. They usually stock them in the Gunsmith dept, but they will charge a little more. The difference will usually be less than shipping.

    They usually break where the tip of the leg enters the follower. In an emergency you can get by for a while by breaking the broken leg off as close to the front as possible. It is a bit tricky getting everything back together, but once assembled it will work. I have saved several dove shoots for folks this way.
