1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I'd like to have some back-up parts for my 1100. Particularly the Link, Piston and piston seal, O-ring, barrel support, feed latch, possibly firing pin, firing pin spring and return spring - basically things that break. Also I'd like to buy a staking tool.
    Let me know what you have. Thanks.

    I shot one for years aod only ever broke the Link (1), a piston ring or two, of course O-rings, barrel support, and one thing you did not mention, the plastic buffer that the firing pin sets in. It will start making the gun misfire after quite a few shells. The staking tool would also be nice, I use a punch to set mine. But the one time the feed bar ever came out was my own stupidity. I had the bolt locked back, took the barrel off, and hit the shell feed button without holding the bolt. That sure makes parts fly.

    I believe that Brownell's and Midwest Gun Works will have everything you need. I have had a number of link failures, a locking lug failure (these are available in oversize versions as a wear compensation), a barrel extension failure, O-rings not so often, barrel support, shell lifter extension on release models, extractor breaks, firing pin springs broken causing misfires...I won't go on but these are over many thousands of rounds in three different 1100's. Just get a selection of parts and carry them, most people can change these parts themselves. Really a pretty good gun.

    Have fun,

    I love 1100s. Shoot one now and have on and off for years. Not a better trap gun made, bar none. One of the best things to do is buy an extra gun. While rumors of breakage are somewhat overblown, you will have everything you need should a problem arise. If you shop around, a good standard example can be had for $275 to $350.
